You have the right diet and exercise for a while, but this stubborn belly fat will not budge! Together with the food fat diet fight, here are some ways to burn while running.
Switch Up Your Pace
Intervals are proven to reduce belly fat and rev up metabolism; instead of running at the same pace for the entire workout, try alternating between periods of pushing your body to the max and periods of recovery. Here’s a list of interval workouts for you to 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
Unfortunately you can’t spot treat when it comes to weight loss, which is one reason solely doing crunches won’t whittle your waistline. The key is to decrease overall body fat, and the one way to do that is to burn calories. Lengthening your workout will do just that. Every five minutes of running at a 10-minute-per-mile pace burns about 45 calories. Think about that on your next run, and it’ll motivate you to keep going!
You’re working hard to diminish your overall body weight, which will slim down your belly so you can reveal toned abs underneath. Here’s one way to strengthen your core. Do one-minute intervals in which you run with high knees (like in this cardio workout you can do in your living room). Concentrate on using your abs rather than your leg muscles to kick your knees up as high as you can.
Try This Killer Treadmill Move
This is another core killer if you use a treadmill. Set the speed to 1.0 miles. Put your feet in a Plyo box and set about two feet behind the treadmill. Place your hand across the running belt. Take your steps and start walking, keeping your torso in a straight line. One minute, put your stomach to the spine.
