The thing with belly fat is: It is pretty stubborn. Following those run-of-the-mill ab workouts do not seem to work.

Many of those lack consistency; a crucial part of loosening the tightness of abdominals and toning them into the shape you want.

We suggest a workout routine, specifically designed for your core abdominal muscles, that goes for five minutes.

This is a mixture of ten basic exercise positions molded into one, complete workout. Remember: You can’t stop in between.

That is what will make this work all the more effective. Also, each exercise should last 30 seconds.

Go ahead and give the five-minute-only workout a thorough read.

BOAT HOLD LEG FLUTTERS WITH A BALL

  • Start off with some leg flutters.
  • Use your basketball, or anything else—a book or practically anything, to help.
  • Get into position are starting off with the leg movement.
  • Make sure you breathe and your legs are absolutely straight.
RUSSIAN TWISTS
  • Lie down on the floor placing your feet either under something that will not move or by having a partner hold them. Your legs should be bent at the knees.
  • Elevate your upper body so that it creates an imaginary V-shape with your thighs. Your arms should be fully extended in front of you perpendicular to your torso and with the hands clasped. This is the starting position.
  • Twist your torso to the right side until your arms are parallel with the floor while breathing out.
  • Hold the contraction for a second and move back to the starting position while breathing out. Now move to the opposite side performing the same techniques you applied to the right side.
  • Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
LYING LEG RAISES
  • For this, grab on to your ball and stretch your arms backward. And move your already joined legs up and then down instead of left and right like the Russian twists.
  • Make sure your head does not touch the floor and that your legs come all the way at a 90 degrees angle for each raise.
SIT UPS WHILE THROWING A BALL IN THE AIR
  • Lay down with your back flat against the floor and your knees bent.
  • Take the medicine-ball and hold it with both hands over your head so that it touches the floor.
  • Sit-up using your abs and as you sit-up take the medicine ball over your head and throw it at the wall in front of you.
  • Catch the ball and return to starting position. This completes one repetition.
JUMPING JACKS
  • Start by standing with your feet together. In one motion, jump your feet out to the side and raise your arms above your head.
  • Immediately reverse the motion by jumping back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
KNEE TAPS
  • Begin in a plank variation with your feet slightly wider than your hips.
  • Bring your right hand to your left shoulder, then place that hand back on the mat. Bring your left hand to your right shoulder and return it to the mat.
  • Bring your right knee and your left hand toward one another under your body. Return to a plank, and switch sides so your left knee meets your right hand.
SIDE-TO-SIDE PLANKS
  • Start on your side with your feet together and one forearm directly below your shoulder.
  • Contract your core and raise your hips until your body is in a straight line from head to feet.
  • Hold the position without letting your hips drop for the allotted time for each set, then repeat on the other side.
SIDE PLANK HIP RAISES
  • Lie on your left side propped up on your left elbow and forearm, shoulders stacked over your elbow, legs stacked on top of each other, and hold a dumbbell in place on top of your right hip.
  • Raise your hips so that your body forms a straight line from head to heels. This is the starting position.
  • Keeping your core braced and your glutes engaged, slowly lower your left hip, tapping it gently on the floor.
  • Reverse the move, returning to side plank position.
  • Repeat for reps, then switch sides, performing equal reps on each.
MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS 

 

  • Begin in a pushup position, with your weight supported by your hands and toes. Flexing the knee and hip, bring one leg until the knee is approximately under the hip. This will be your starting position.
  • Explosively reverse the positions of your legs, extending the bent leg until the leg is straight and supported by the toe, and bringing the other foot up with the hip and knee flexed. Repeat in an alternating fashion for 20-30 seconds.

 

 

Once you are done, lie down on your back for your pulse to normalize and have a glass of water later.
