Some people, regardless of the proper diet and regular workout, cannot get rid of the belly fat. One of the main reasons behind this issue is slow metabolism-the rate of burning calories is slow and calories are harder to burn.
If you practice some weight loss regime, you may have experienced slower burning of calories than previously. This is due to the fact that when you begin to lose weight, your metabolism slows down, which can be really frustrating. But, don’t worry, this shows that you’re on the right path!
Part of the metabolic rate is fixed according to the genes you’re born with, however, there is a simple, but effective workout that can help you shirk your waist circumference and get rid of belly fat by increasing your metabolism.
The workout is specifically designed to build the muscles and increase the bone mass. What’s more, the workout requires only 5 minutes of your time.
Begin with 1 seat of each exercise until you get comfortable enough and then you can gradually increase to 5 sets. Hydration during workout is crucial.
PLANK WALK TUCK REACH
Begin with your feet together and the arms up. Then, hinge at your hips and bring your hands to the floor and maintain your legs as straight as possible. Next, you need to walk your hands forward along the floor, lowering the buttock as you go until you are in plank position and the body is straight. Afterwards, jump your feet forwards to meet your hands and you’ll be in a crouching position. Next, reverse the move, that is, jump back to plank, walk the hands backward to the feet, and then stand up with the arms raised. Do this for 30 seconds.
When you increase the number of sets, rest for 30 to 60 seconds between each so that the body can recover.
X SWITCH JUMPS
Begin with the feet together and then jump into diagonal lunge. Then, imagine a clock-face on the floor and try to put your right leg at 2 o’clock and the left at 8 o’clock. The feet need to be faced forwards and be careful not to let the knee jut out past your ankle. Next, jump again and switch the leg, land the left leg at 10 o’clock and the right at 4. Rest for 30 to 60 seconds between sets.
BEAR CRAWL ESCAPE
Begin in plank position with the wrists aligned with the shoulders. Next, you need to bend the knees and bring them to a position under the hips, maintaining the heels lifted. Then, without the heels touching the floor, jump from side to side and then go back to plank position before coming back into the position with the knees under the hips. Remember to rest for 30 to 60 seconds as you increase the number of sets.
Why is this workout so effective?
Because it is interval training and you are actually alternating between intervals of intense exercise for a short period of time followed by a rest period which speeds up the metabolism. In this way, you will burn calories more quickly and after some period, you will also lose unwanted pounds.
