How to Burn Belly Fat for Absolute Beginners

What makes this the absolute best workout to burn belly fat? It’s the combination of muscle-building moves and fat-burning cardio!

For this beginner ab workout, we alternated between bodyweight and cardio exercises. The bodyweight moves, such as Russian twists, leg raises, and bicycle crunches, work your abdominal muscles for sharp definition. The cardio moves, such as skaters, jumping jacks, and high knees, burn tons of calories in a short period of time. This atomic combination is great for getting quick, visible results.

Additionally, alternating between the moves makes this an ideal workout for beginners. The ab moves allow for a cardio break so that you can slowly build endurance. Meanwhile, the cardio moves give your muscles a rest so you don’t push yourself past your limits. The moves we chose for this workout are simple enough for beginners, yet effective enough for even the most advanced athlete.

What You’ll Need: a gym timer, and a mat to lay on the floor

What to Do: Perform each move in order for 40 seconds, with 20-second breaks in between.

Below, we’ve included videos showing how to perform each move. Using proper form helps prevent injuries and ensures you’re getting the most out of your workout.

Exercises:
1. Skaters
2. Russian Twists
3. Jumping Jacks
4. Leg Raises
5. High Knees
6. Bicycle Crunch

      It depends on how you’re feeling, Candice! Try one set, and then if you feel like you can do a second set, go for it!
