In a nutshell, to make your stomach smaller, it comes down to proper nutrition, drinking lots of water, getting plenty of sleep, and doing the right type of exercise. Going on a smart diet program will fix the nutrition part, and everyone knows about and how to drink more water and get more sleep, but when it comes to fitness, that’s where a lot of confusion comes in.
It’s amazing how many people think that doing ab exercises is what will actually cause you to lose belly fat. Even companies are promoting fitness products claiming that there ab machines will cause you to lose that stubborn ab fat. What’s sad is that these companies know darn well that ab exercises WILL NOT cause you to lose your stomach fat! That’s why they so cleverly indicate in very small print all the OTHER things you need to do in order to get results!
Bottom line my friend, if you want to get that flat stomach, then doing those things I mentioned in the beginning are vitally important, and doing the RIGHT type of exercising is just as important.
So, what’s the “right” type of exercise?
Well, simply put, the right type of exercise is anything that will effectively build lean muscle tissue (and no… I’m not talking about building HUGE muscles), increase your heart rate, improve your resting heart rate, boost your metabolism, and burn off a ton of calories in as little time as possible. In other words, full body muscle building workouts and high intensity cardio.
Full body muscle building means doing resistance training that incorporates more than one muscle group. Squats, bench press, push up, pull up, burpees, dead lifts, etc. High intensity cardio are workouts that are extremely intense and will skyrocket your heart rate causing you to lose a ton of calories in a very short time frame. The benefits of high intensity cardio is that you’ll MAINTAIN muscle tissue, improve your cardiovascular system in no time, and you’ll burn off a TON of calories very quickly.
So, with all that said, here is an awesome body weight routine you can do right at home that incorporates all the above. This workout should take roughly 15-20 minutes to do… and trust me on this… you WILL need a lot of water and a sweat towel!
Do 4 rounds of the following:
5 reps of some type of lower body workout (lunges, squats, jumping squats, step ups, side straddle hops, etc.).
10 full burpees (squat down to touch the ground with feet shoulder width apart, jump your legs back to end up in a push up position, do a push up, jump your legs back, and then jump up straight with arms lifted up).
After the above, do 10 push ups (you can vary the push ups with close hands, wide hands, explosive push ups with clapping your hands, etc.).
This simple (in concept), but extreme (in what it does to your body) workout should take you around 15 minutes to complete. For myself, this workout causes me to personally burn close to 400 calories in 15 freaking minutes! That’s 1600 calories an hour! Of course I HIGHLY recommend you don’t do this workout for an hour!
One more thing: PLEASE consult a physician before you begin this workout (or any other workout for that matter)! This workout is VERY intense, and it may not be ideal for you if you have a specific health condition.
