Some of you have probably experienced the problem with the stubborn belly fat that just won’t go away, even though you have been eating right and also exercising for a while. Besides incorporating some foods which fight fat into your diet, here we are going to present you some ways of burning that pooch away while you are out on a run.
Switch up your pace
Intervals have been proven to have the ability of reducing belly fat and rev up the metabolism. Instead of running at the same pace for the whole workout, you can also try alternating between periods of pushing your body to the max, as well as periods of recovery. Here, we will show you a list of interval workouts which you should try:
- 45-minute fat-burning treadmill workout;
- 300-calorie-burning walking-jogging workout;
- 30-minute pyramid intervals;
- Swimming interval workout;
- 45-minute walk-run-sprint workout;
- 45-minute elliptical interval workout.
Go a little longer
Unluckily, you don’t have the ability to spot treat when it comes to weight loss, which is one of the reasons solely doing crunches will not whittle your waistline. The key is to decrease the overall body fat and one of the ways of doing that is by burning calories. Also, lengthening your workout will lead you to that. Every five minutes of running at a 10-minute-per-mile pace will burn about 45 calories. On your next run, you should think about that, so it will motivate you to continue.
In order to diminish the overall body weight, you are working really hard and that will actually slim down your belly so you can reveal toned abs underneath. One of the ways of strengthening your core is by doing one-minute intervals in which you run with high knees. You should also concentrate on using your abs instead of your leg muscles, in order to kick your knees up as high as you can.
Try this killer treadmill move
If you are using a treadmill, here is another core killer – set the pace to 1.0 mph. Then, place your feet on Plyo Box that is set up about two feet behind the back of the treadmill. After that, come into plank position with the hands straddling the treadmill belt. Then, step your hands on the belt and start walking, keeping the torso in one straight line. You should do this for about one minute, pulling your belly in toward your spine.
