Abdominal fat burning exercises
When you spend 1 hour a day at the gym and your time is valuable because of social obligations or work, every exercises count. Even more so when it comes to abs and mid section.
Nobody want’s to waste time on exercises that do not burn fat in the most optimal way. Many of you probably wonder what exercise burns belly fat the most.
Before we go a little deeper in what exercise burns belly fat the quickest, remember that diet is the key.
And it is only in understanding this core principle that you will achieve fast burning belly fat. As they say “You get your abs in the kitchen”. No matter how many crunches you will do a day.
If your diet is not adapted you will most likely fail. You can not out train a poor diet. Remember that.
The two best belly fat burning exercises
We have listed below our top two pick of exercise that burn belly fat the fastest.
1) Kneeling cable crunch (Core)
By far our favorite when it comes to one exercise for the whole mid section. With the right diet I have seen athlete achieving totally ripped abs with this exercise only.
By training your abs with weight you will make them pop with this killer core and abs move.
Kneel below high pulley. Grasp cable rope attachment with both hands. Place wrists against head. Position hips back and flex hips allowing resistance on cable pulley to lift torso upward so spine is hyperextended.
With hips stationary, flex waist so elbows travel toward middle of thighs. Return and repeat.
2) Stability ball pike ups
Pike ups are an advanced abdominal exercise that targets the upper abs. This exercise requires a tremendous amount of core strength, balance and stability in order to be executed properly.
Start in a push-up position with your legs up on the stability ball. Make sure that your back is straight, your hips are tucked and your core is engaged.
Lift your hips upwards by contracting your upper abs. Raise your body up to a V or until your feet are in the middle of the stability ball.
Slowly lower your body back to the starting position and repeat.
As I said before, diet is a very important factor when it comes to abs, You can not out train a bad diet. In order to have abs popping you will need to get down in body fat.
Between 8 and 6% depending on body type. The ideal fat shredding diet for abs is a 80% protein 20% carbs. Also do not over train them. Just like other muscles 2 times a week is far enough.
Add twice a week cardio to your work out routine.
