Lose belly fat fast!
Published: 11 January 2016
There is no magic pill for losing weight. Companies market these magic pills each and every day, but don’t believe it for a second. Losing weight comes down to being committed to a consistent and effective workout plan. It also is important to eat a healthy diet, opting for nutrient-dense foods and staying away from the highly-processed options. Perhaps you have been working out and lost some weight. However, you can’t seem to get those last few stubborn pounds off of your belly. Flex Fitness Equipment can help. We are the premier fitness equipment destination in Australia and have a wide range of affordable and effective equipment.
Try this workout three times per week in addition to your regular routine. This will help you get over that plateau and keep you burning calories throughout your day. It will only take about 20 minutes? Instead of sitting on the couch for those 20 minutes, crank up the intensity and get a good sweat in.
Directions: Perform this workout as a circuit with little to no rest in between each exercise. All you need is a stationary bike, fitness mat and a pair of dumbbells. Complete 3 rounds of this circuit.
Stationary Bike – 4 minutes (TABATA)
You will be on the stationary bike for a total of four minutes using the Tabata protocol. Tabata divides the four minutes into eight rounds of 20 seconds of high-intensity work followed by 10 seconds of rest.
Curl and Press – 10 reps
Standing tall, grab both dumbbells with an underhand grip. Your palms will be facing away from your body. Curl both dumbbells up, flexing your elbow until they reach shoulder level. At shoulder level, twist the dumbbells until your palms face out again and press them overhead until your arms are fully extended.
Plank – 1 minute
Get down in a prone position on your mat. Place your forearms on the mat and elbows below your shoulders. Lift your body off the floor and make sure your body is parallel with the floor. Contract the abs and glutes the entire hold.
Russian Twists – 1 minute
Following the plank, sit down with your butt on the mat. Holding one dumbbell, lift your legs off the mat and lean back so your back is at a 45-degree angle with the floor. Twist your torso side to side. Try to keep both arms straight throughout the movement.
