5 EXERCISES TO REDUCE THIGH FAT

7 TIPS FOR WORKING OUT AT HOME


BELLY FAT is kind of the most difficult to get rid of.
Most common reason of belly fat is today’s lifestyle. The way we work sitting at one place for hours, not at all taking part in games or any workouts. It’s also our food habits, slow metabolism and many other causes. Even stress can be the reason of belly fat.
Belly fat is dangerous because it poses health risks. Experts also say that belly fat can lead to higher risks of heart issues, diabetes, stroke and more.


Let’s be honest! Many of us can’t workout regularly or even once a week due to our busy schedule, not having time to go to the gym, or the most common reason- WE ARE TOO LAZY!!!

So, how about working out just 4 days a week and that too for 15 to 20 minutes?
Yes I know it’s still not fun, but let’s be honest, we have to work out a little to achieve our aim. Making it a habit is not that difficult as you can do this the first thing as you wake up in the morning.

Before we begin with those exercises, you must keep this in mind that every person has a different body. So for some the results might show up pretty soon but it may take a while for others. But trust me, stick to it and you will get there. 



7 EXERCISES TO LOSE BELLY FAT AT HOME

1. WALK / RUN



Sounds so common but it isn’t. It is a whole body workout to burn fat.
If you like a morning or an evening run or walk in the park, then there you go! Just a 5 to 10 minutes of walking or running is kind of the best way of burning fat  because, it not only aims on burning belly fat but the whole body fat.
How to do…
Start walking slowly then after a minute walk briskly (increase your speed for 20 to 30 seconds) and then again slow for a minute, then again walk briskly.
If you are comfortable running then do the same while you run.

2. CRUNCHES



This is for your lower and upper abs.
How to do…
Lie down on a mat, hold your head with your hands and lift your head off the floor. Bend your knees a little and keep your feet on the floor.
Then try getting up towards your knees with your head. Go back to the starting position. 2 sets of 10 reps are good for a start.
Don’t forget to inhale while going up and exhale while going down.

3. BICYCLE CRUNCHES



This one is for upper and lower abs, glutes and quads.
How to do…
Position the same as for the crunches being it your staring position.
Push your right leg down and keep it straight. Now try getting up and start curling and try to touch your right elbow to your left knee. Get back down to the starting position and now do the same with your left leg down and trying to touch your left elbow to your right knee. 2 sets of 10 reps.

4. PLANK



This one is a must. It’s for your upper and lower abs, glutes, shoulders and biceps.
How to do…
Kneel down like a dog. Place your elbows on the mat and then extend your both legs one by one. Keeping your neck, back, and hips in a same line hold this pose for at least 30 seconds. 2 sets of 30 to 60 seconds.

5. LYING LEG RAISES



This exercise looks so easy but it’s very effective for your upper and lower abs, glutes and quads.
How to do…
Lie down on the mat placing your hands by your side. Look up at the ceiling and start raising your feet a little, this is our starting position.
Raise your legs up to 90degrees and slowly bring them down but right before touching the ground raise your legs again.
2 sets of 15 reps for this one.

6. RUSSIAN TWIST



It’s for your upper and lower abs, glutes and oblique.
How to do…
Sit on the mat, lift your legs a little, keep your knees bended and lean back a little.
Join your hands to balance your start position. Twist your upper body to the left and then to the right. 2 sets of 20 reps are good to go.

7. CROSS BODY MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS



This works on your upper and lower abs, glutes, quads and hamstrings.
How to do…
Get in a plank position. Your elbows should be just below your shoulders. Keep your neck back and hips in a straight line. Don’t curve down or pike up. This is the starting position. Now lift your right knee up bringing it close to your left chest. Then do the same with your left knee.
Do it in speed as if you are running. 2 sets of 30 reps are good for a start.

Lastly, just exercising will not lead you to your aim; you have to eat your food in moderation. Don’t stay hungry but also don’t eat too much otherwise that will obviously turn out no difference in your belly fat.

 Doing these exercises regularly will show you result pretty soon, but if regular exercising is not your take then make sure to do these at least 4 days a week.
  Make sure to have fun. Stay happy and start exercising.
