5 Exercises To Lose Belly Fat At Home {2021}

A common goal for a lot of ladies is to lose belly fat. Belly fat is stubborn and the most difficult to get rid of. although it is possible to lose belly fat with a calorie deficit diet and belly fat-burning workouts.



  • Heel touches

    Start by laying down with your back on the ground and your knees bent and pointed towards the ceiling. Now  with your arms on your side raise your shoulders slightly off the ground.  Using your abs rotate your right hand down to your right foot and then back up. Continue doing the same thing with your left hand.
  • Russian Twist

     Bring your legs out straight and  lean back slightly so your torso and legs form a V-like shape, now engage your core and balance the position. Next, twist your torso from side to side without moving your legs.  Do 3 sets of this with 12 reps each followed by a 30-second rest. 

Toe touches

Start by laying on the mat with legs long-reaching towards the ceiling. Bring head, neck, and shoulders off the mat and try to reach to the feet using your arms. Do 3 sets of this with 12 reps each followed by a 30-second rest. 

Mountain climbers

Get into a plank position, your hands should be about shoulder-width apart, back flat, abs engaged, and head in alignment. Now pull your right knee into your chest as far as you can and switch legs, pulling one knee out and bringing the other knee in. Do 3 sets of this with 12 reps each followed by a 30-second rest. 

Bicycle crunch

My favorite has to be bicycle crunch. Lie down on your back.  Place your arms behind your head, pointing your elbows outward. Bend your knees and plant your feet on the floor, hip-width apart. Engage your abs and lift your knees to 90 degrees and raise your upper body. This is your starting position. Exhale and rotate your trunk, moving your right elbow and left knee toward each other. Simultaneously straighten your right leg. 

What we consume in the day affects the way our body functions, so making healthy food choices is just as important as exercising. Healthy breakfast ideas, meal preps, and healthy snacks would supplement your goal and reach it faster. If you don’t know how to plan your meals, a cookbook would be a great idea for you to get started. Here is a great cookbook that I found online providing all the healthy foods that are easy and fun to make.

Disclaimer: There is nothing wrong with the way our bodies are right now, everyone has their own lifestyle, genes, hormones, and eating habits, and that pooch is completely normal and does not define you. But if one wanted to make healthy and balanced lifestyle choices, then we are here for the help and support you need. 

A few months back I was looking at myself in the mirror and just did not like what I was looking at, my lifestyle was inactive with little to no exercise, bad eating habits and low energy, various digestion problems, always mentally exhaustion, and more. I just wanted to make a change and be able to do more in the day actively.  Taking charge of my physical health is one of the best things I did last year. One of the challenges I took up last year was this 12- week Yoga burn challenge.  This totally unique routine is designed for Women that would like to experience the wonderful benefits of Yoga while being able to burn calories, manage their weight, and get into great shape at the same time
