Sport, in general, increases the body’s metabolic activity (called active metabolism), which corresponds to the increase in energy needs necessary for the proper functioning of the body. This metabolic activity allows you to lose calories and therefore lose fat mass.

We often tend to talk about weight loss, but we should talk about fat loss instead.

You know, the one which, in particular, accumulates at the bottom of the stomach and which forms the famous bulge?

To get rid of this fatty deposit once and for all that is making you complex and lowering your morale, regular physical activity is essential!

Below you will find a 5-minute sequence of exercises to help you lose belly fat!

Facial sheathing 

It allows you to work the entire abdominal area

  • Lie with your head facing the ground
  • Resting on the forearms and the tips of the toes
  • Raise the pelvis so that there is alignment between the head, back and pelvis
  • Maintain position

If the position indicated above is too complicated to maintain, you can place your knees on the ground, the main thing is to always keep this head/back/pelvis alignment.

Oblique crunches 

They allow you to draw the major oblique and minor oblique muscles.

  • Lie on your back, hands behind your neck, legs semi-flexed
  • Place the right ankle on the left knee
  • Inhale and bring your left elbow towards your right knee, making sure to curl your spine

 Then perform the exercise on the other side.

The mountaineer 

It helps strengthen the entire abdominal area.

  • In push-up position to start, on tiptoe, legs and arms straight
  • The body must be straight and strong
  • Bend the right leg, bring the right knee close to the right elbow under the chest without touching the foot to the ground
  • In one explosive movement, reverse the position with the left leg (the right leg is then straight and the left leg bent)

To make the exercise easier, you can pause between changing legs.

Sit-Ups:

They help strengthen the rectus abdominis muscle.

  • Seated position, trunk vertical, hands behind the neck, knees bent at 90° and feet flat on the mat
  • Lie on your back with your shoulders touching the floor then return to a seated position.
  • Legs remain fixed during movement
  • Do not pull on the neck

You can replace this exercise with crunches. The starting position is the same but this time you raise your shoulders about ten centimeters.

Leg pedaling

This exercise, performed at a good intensity, will allow you to burn calories while building muscle.

  • Lie on your back with your lower back flat on the floor.
  • Lift your feet off the ground and raise your knees
  • Perform a forward pedaling movement (same movements as on a bicycle)

You can make this exercise more complex by raising your shoulders.

Do each exercise for 30 seconds with 10 seconds of recovery between each! And always remember not to block your breathing, inhale during the easiest phase and exhale during the most complicated phase.
