Bye bye belly fat: Tone your abs with these exercises at home

Many people consider their belly, legs and backside “problem zones” — areas where they carry a little extra padding that they’d love to exercise away.

The biggest hurdle for most is their inner couch potato, which has to be overcome before they make any progress.

But these exercises to train the belly fat away are simple enough that you can do them in the privacy of your own home.

Here’s an overview of the seven exercises again. Unless it says otherwise, for each exercise you should do three sets of 15 repetitions.

1. Leg Raises

Lie on your back and raise and lower your outstretched legs.

2. Bicycles

Lie on your back and pull your knees up toward your chest. Make circular motions with your legs in an alternating pattern, as if you were riding a bicycle.

3. Altnernating Leg Raises

Unlike in Exercise 1, where you raise and lower both legs together, now raise and lower one leg at a time, switching from one to the other.

4. Scissors

Lift your legs slightly and cross them over each other in an alternating motion — the left over the right, the right over the left. Perform four sets in total.

5. Mountain Climber

Set yourself on your hands and feet like a sprinter on the starting line. In this position, take quick steps on the spot. For this exercise, you only need to complete two sets.

6. Elbow to knee

Lie on your back and bend one knee, keeping your foot flat on the floor. As shown in the video, place the outside of your other foot against the raised knee. Place your hands behind your head. If your right leg is resting on your left knee, for example, move your left shoulder towards your right knee. Then swap your legs over and do the other side.

7. Bridging

Lie on your back, bend your knees and place your feet and hands flat on the floor. In this position, raise your backside up off the floor. Complete four sets in total.

If you have a little tenacity and complete theses exercises regularly and often, they’ll soon have a noticeable effect. And unlike going to the gym, you don’t need a membership fee, just a mat and enough space at home!
