Everyone always wants to know what the best exercise to lose belly fat is. While there’s not just one type of workout or one type of exercise that targets fat loss, there are a few different styles of exercise that can help you drop stubborn pounds.
Today, I’ll be sharing weight loss exercises at home you can do to help target fat loss. Don’t forget to pair these with a healthy, balanced diet and enough water intake! With this combo, you’ll be unstoppable!
The Best Exercises For Weight Loss
Before we get into the best exercise to lose belly fat, know that everyone is different. Every body is unique, and everyone’s metabolism functions differently. The best way to target fat loss is to incorporate different varieties of workouts. Instead of focusing on just one of these, try rotating them each time you workout, or every week and see what you like best.
1. Heavy Lifting
If I had a dollar for every time a woman said she didn’t want to lift because she didn’t want to get bulky, I’d be a billionaire! Ladies, I PROMISE you will not get bulky from lifting heavy weights a few times per week. Professional weight lifters have to work very hard to bulk, it’s not that easy. Lifting heavy helps our muscles work to exhaustion. This is firing up more muscle fibers, and recruiting more energy to make it happen. The result? More fat is burned in the process.
Pilates is one of my favorite weight loss exercises at home. The movements are low intensity, and it can be done almost anywhere! Pilates works to lengthen the muscles, which help you get leaner, and even elongate your muscles, making you look taller and slimmer. My favorite way to add onto pilates workouts is adding my SkinnyFit workout band. They make it more challenging, and help you burn more calories.
This is, hands down, the most underrated fat loss method. Walking is great for you for so many reasons. First, it helps calm the nervous system. When we’re less stressed, our body is more willing to drop weight. Second, it’s low intensity, so anyone can do it! Finally, it’s best when done outdoors. This means fresh air, rejuvenating sunlight, and no phone time. Win-win-win!
