Cardiovascular exercises: Incorporate activities like running, cycling, or elliptical training to burn overall body fat, including belly fat.
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT): Perform short bursts of intense exercise followed by brief rest periods to boost metabolism and target abdominal fat.
Abdominal crunches: Target the core muscles with traditional crunches, reverse crunches, and bicycle crunches to strengthen and tone the abdominal area.
Planks: Engage the entire core by holding a plank position, either on your hands or forearms, to help sculpt and define the midsection.
Russian twists: Sit on the floor, lean back slightly, and rotate your torso side to side, using a medicine ball or bodyweight to engage the obliques.
Leg raises: Lie on your back and lift your legs toward the ceiling, engaging the lower abdominal muscles to reduce the appearance of a "pooch."
Mountain climbers: Combine cardiovascular benefits with core engagement by bringing your knees toward your chest in a plank position.
Bicycle exercises: Lie on your back, mimic a cycling motion with your legs, and touch your elbow to the opposite knee to activate both upper and lower abdominal muscles.
