Belly fat can creep up on you, especially considering the busy lifestyle of today’s fast-paced world. Dieting alone isn’t usually enough to trim down. Fortunately, getting rid of belly fat is easier than you think. These simple at-home exercises should do the trick in no time.

Bicycles But Without The Wheels

Lie on the floor with your hands behind your head. Lift your legs off the ground with bent knees. Bring your right knee into your chest, touching it with your left elbow, while simultaneously straightening your left leg. Do the same on the reverse side. Repeat this twenty-five times.

Twist Like A Russian

Try Russian Twists. Sit down with knees bent, feet on the floor, and hands clasped together near your chest. Keeping your back flat and abs tight, lean back slightly, lifting your feet off the floor. Twist to the right, moving your hands to your left hip. Return to center. Twist to the other side.

Light As A Feather, Stiff As A Board

The dreaded plank—get on your hands and knees, with your elbows on the floor. Lift your knees, leaving support for your legs on your toes. Your legs should be straight behind you, your neck aligned with your spine, your abs flexed. Stay in this plank position from 30 seconds to a minute, breathing slowly.

Sometimes We Like It Backward

Reverse crunches, for people who don’t like to move their heads. Lie down on the floor with your arms flat beside you and palms facing downward. Begin with straight or slightly bent legs lifted perpendicular to the ground. Now using your abs, slowly lift your legs up until your toes are over your head. Slowly lower them down and repeat 15 times.

V Is For Very Nice Abs

V-Ups! Lie on your back, legs extended, feet together, arms over your head. Simultaneously flex your abs, pull your straight legs up, and reach your arms up, touching your toes. Your body should look like a V. Exhale back down to the floor. Repeat 10-15 times in a steady motion.
