On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m taking you into the gym with me to show you the 7 best exercises to burn belly fat as fast as possible.
You may be surprised that none of these exercises include crunches.
Remember, the key to burn belly fat faster, is to burn more calories faster.
Spot reduction is the idea that you can target one area of your body with direct exercises to burn fat.
Unfortunately, spot reduction is just a myth.
This means completing 1000’s of crunches will not create a high enough calorie burn to actually burn a lot of belly fat.
The best way to burn a lot of belly fat fast, is via compound, multi-joint exercises that hit your biggest major muscle groups.
Guess where your biggest muscles are?
In your legs.
Train them more to get stronger, torch more calories, and burn more overall body fat, including belly fat.
The following 7 exercises not only burn a lot of calories, they also maximize the afterburn effect.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know the fastest way to Live Lean is to incorporate more exercises into your workouts that increase the afterburn effect.
The afterburn effect helps your body to burn more calories after your workout is finished, for up to 48 hours.
Essentially, you’ll be burning more calories while you sleep.
Warning: the following exercises have been known to kill belly fat.
Or any squat variation.
Or any lunge variation.
Or any weighted step up variation.
Or any deadlift variation.
I love completing jump lunges and jump squats as a workout finisher burnout after a tough workout.
Fat can’t live here.
