Lots of Sweat – Flat Stomach

Lots of Sweat – Flat Stomach

A flat and tight stomach is proof that you maintain fitness and take care of your diet. In addition to looking nice, it also makes you stronger and less prone to injury. It is a mistake to think that a flat stomach is the result of repeating the famous abs. The results of one study showed that abdominal exercise alone will not affect the fat that is deposited in the abdomen.

A girl has an exercise named "mountaineer".

Set yourself in a push-up position. Lift your right foot off the floor and push your left knee toward your chest at the same time. Tap the floor with your right foot, then return to the original position. Alternately, as soon as possible, change legs. Do the exercise for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, and repeat for 4 minutes.

Hitting with a “medicine ball”

Performing movements such as hitting with a medicine ball, requires the engagement of all your muscles, from the neck to the hips, at the same time. If you speed up the pace and move the ball at a higher speed, you will speed up your pulse and burn a serious amount of belly fat. A 3 kg ball is enough for this.Hold the ball above your head, legs apart. Hit the ball on the floor as hard as you can. When it bounces, grab it and repeat


A guy is doing push-ups exercises named "legionnaire".

This demanding exercise activates all muscles, from head to toe and involves the transition from push-up to jump and return to push-up position. A study by the College of Sports Medicine found that 10 repetitions of this exercise speeds up the metabolism as well as a half-minute sprint, so with its help you can quickly burn belly fat. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower your body until your palms are on the floor. Throw your legs back, do a push-up, then quickly return your legs to your palms and  straighten your body

Step over weight

Lift the weight over your head while doing the step. All the muscles of the torso must work together in order to keep the weight of the weight exactly above the head. This will activate both the buttocks and the back, because the hunched shoulders contribute to the relaxation of the stomach. Take 2 pairs of weights, from light to medium weight. Raise them above your head so that your palms are facing each other. Put your foot forward, stop, and then pull the back leg forward so that your feet are next to each other.

Kettlebell Swing

This is perhaps one of the best exercises for burning calories. To handle a heavy metal ball properly, you need to engage a large group of muscles, such as the gluteus, thighs, and front of the thigh. The nature of this movement accelerates the heart rhythm, but also strengthens the upper part of the body. When the ball is in the highest position, the body is forced to bend forward so you have to tighten the abdominal muscles as if you were doing a “board”. Bend your knees and hold the kettlebell with both hands in front of you. Pull it towards you and then move it back between your legs. Then tighten the gluteus, strongly push the hips forward and swing the ball to shoulder height, so that the arms are parallel to the floor. From this position, push the kettlebell between your legs again.


With these exercises, which are a combination of whole body movements and with which you will leave a lot of sweat on the floor, you may not immediately start to “melt” the fat. But you will be satisfied with the results like a flat stomach in the foreseeable future.
