Reducing belly fat is a combination of paying attention to your nutrition and having a regular exercise routine. Try this series of exercises to fire up your muscles and tone this common trouble area.
Andi will demonstrate how to properly perform these five exercises. When you feel comfortable, move through each exercise for 30 seconds each. As always, safety is key. If you have a chronic condition (including osteoporosis), an injury, or balance issues, talk to your doctor about how you can exercise safely.
Stand with your feet hip-distance apart and keep your knees slightly bent. Then, make gentle fists and bend your arms to bring your fists in front of your shoulders. Twist your upper body to the right, then to the left, then to the right again. On your third twist, raise your right heel off the ground. Next, twist to the left, then right, then left again and lift your left heel up.
Increase the intensity: Rather than raising your heel from the floor on your third twist, raise your knee up.
Repeat the spine twist sequence for 30 seconds.
