Effective Exercises to Reduce Jelly Belly fat:
1. Inching Elbow Plank:
- Begin in an elbow plank position, hands clasped, with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart.
- Step your left foot towards your hands as you begin to lift your hips up slightly, quickly taking another step in with your right foot, lifting hips a little more.
- Step the left foot in again, lifting your hips higher and then again with the right, so that your hips end lifted high in a pike position.
- Slowly inch back out, reversing the way you walked in, until you return to the starting plank pose.
- That’s one rep. Do up to 3 sets of 5 reps.
2. Hip Lift:
- Raise both legs up toward the ceiling so that they are perpendicular to your torso and steady yourself by extending your arms out away from your sides on the floor with your palms facing downwards. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and pull your belly button in to your spine. Curl your hips toward your torso as you exhale, lifting your hips a few inches off the floor keeping your legs straight.
- Breathe in as you slowly lower your hips to the ground.
- Repeat 10 times.
- Be seated on a flat bench so that your body is positioned perpendicular to its length. Anchor your body with your bum at all times.
- Grab the back of the bench, drop your torso backwards, and extend your legs forward until your entire body is straight and parallel to the floor.
- Simultaneously pull in your lower abs and crunch your upper abs to form a “V” with your quads and stomach.
- Keep your abs tight, a straight back, and strong posture throughout.
- Repeat for 15-20 reps.
- Once this becomes too easy, increase the difficulty by holding a light weight in between your feet.
