7 Exercises to Reduce the Size of Your Belly

Reducing the fat in the abdominal area is always challenging, and it is very difficult to control. Despite a healthy diet, it requires regular exercise in order to be burnt and eliminated.

Abdominal or visceral fat elevates the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, as well as various other health issues.

However, start doing the following 7 every morning, and you will be amazed by the results:

1. Heavy Side Bend

In a standing position, with the hands up, holding a dumbbell, and bend on one of the sides. Hold for a few seconds, and repeat on the other side. Do 10 repetitions.

2. Forward Bend

Stand with the feet straight and together, bend down, and try to touch the feet with the hands. Repeat 10 times.

3. Mountain Climber

Start in a push-up position, and jump on each leg interchangeably, raising the knees near the chest.

4. V-UPS

Lay down with the arms extended behind the head, and the feet close together, with the feet pointing upward. Raise the legs while lifting the entire body off the floor in an attempt to reach for the toes. Hold for a few seconds and return to the starting position.

5. Bicycle

Lay down on the floor, the hands behind the head, and raise the legs in an angle of 90 degrees. Move them like riding a bike, rotating the entire body.

Lay down with the face towards the floor, the legs extended, in a plank position, with a tight core. Bring the left knee to the right elbow, hold, and return to the initial position. Do 10 repetitions on each side.
