Here are some of the very best exercises for girls to lose belly fat.
First of all, leg raises. This is the best exercise to train the abdominals directly. This is because leg raises will train both the upper AND lower abs – something that useless crunches can’t. There is leg raises and alternating leg raises. You can perform either. I personally prefer normal (both legs) leg raises, so I do them instead.
Second of all, planks. Normal planks and side planks (both right and left side) are awesome for firming up your core. Also, it’s a great exercise for your lower back. This is important because you don’t want to just workout one muscle group without working out the opposing muscle group (e.g. your lower back and your abs). You want to be strong on both ends so that you will maintain a good posture as well as develop stronger abdominal muscles (don’t worry about looking bulky – it has more to do with your diet). Control your ‘muscle tone’ through dieting.
Third of all, interval sprinting. Interval sprinting is the best exercise for fat loss overall across the body. It is a great time saver compared to jogging, and is easily scalable (e.g. easy to incorporate progressive overload into the exercise), which makes it that much better than jogging (which is honestly useless – that’s why you see so many women who jog are still fat).
