If one of your goals is to reduce abdominal fat quickly, but you find it difficult to take time out of your schedule to achieve it, you have come to the right place.
We spoke with Jayne Gomez, a personal trainer at Fyt , a major personal training service that makes getting in shape under the expert guidance of a certified fitness professional in person (or virtually) comfortable and accessible for anyone.
Gomez gave us the scoop on a 10-minute daily workout you can do to reduce belly fat fast. After all, it’s very frustrating to have stubborn fat that just won’t go away.
” In the 10+ years that I’ve been in the fitness industry, I’ve found that the fastest way to get rid of belly fat is to be in a slight caloric deficit and do HIIT exercises ,” says Gomez.
” If you want to level up and see results even faster, I would do the exercises first thing in the morning on an empty stomach .” For this type of training to be ultra-effective, Gomez says, you need to take short breaks and make sure your heart rate is up. Gomez recommends bringing a heart rate monitor so you can easily keep track.
Now is the time to start. Check out Gomez’s 10-minute workout to reduce belly fat fast. ” You’re going to do the next four exercises in a ‘superset,’ meaning you’re going to do one set of each, and then take a 30-second break, and repeat ,” Gomez explains.
Exercise 1: High Knees
First of all, you should stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your hands in front of you. Push off with your right leg to touch your right hand with your knee. Go back to the starting position. Do the same with the other leg. Do 3 sets of 15 reps on each leg.
Exercise 2: Plank
Lie on the floor, face down. Position your arms so that your shoulders are directly above your elbows, with your wrists aligned with your elbows in a straight line (see image above). Contract your abdominal muscles and glutes (the muscles that make up your buttocks) and hold the position for as long as you can. Gradually lengthen the position holding time.
Rest about a minute between repetitions. Do 3 sets of 30 seconds each.
Exercise 3: Mountain Climbers
For this exercise, you have to get into a high plank position. Continue to bring your left knee to your chest, then bring it back to the starting position and then do the same thing but with your right knee to your chest, replicating the look of a climbing motion. Do 3 sets of 15 reps on each leg.
Exercise 4: Knee Bends
First you have to start in the same position as a push-up. Next, keep only your knees in contact with the ground as you press up, lifting your upper body. Go down to the starting position, that will be one repetition. Repeat 15 reps for 3 sets
