Effective ways to burn that stubborn belly fat

The stomach is one of the most difficult areas to lose fat from. No matter how many corsets, body shapers and spanx you heave your body through, that stubborn piece of fat around the middle smugly sits there, showing no signs of leaving. If sweating it out at the gym isn’t exactly appealing, fret not. Here are some simple yet effective ways of burning belly fat… JOIN A ZUMBA CLASS: Don’t want to join an aerobics class? Join a Zumba one instead! This dance is an intense calorie-burning cardiovascular exercise that will help you shed those pounds quickly. Put on some fast paced music and let your body loose. Zumba is known to tone your body, helps relieve stress, improves your coordination and even boosts your metabolism. LEARN HOW TO HULA HOOP Now, this may look easy but it isn’t as simple as if looks. Hula hooping works not only on your ab muscles but also on your shoulders and back.It might take you a couple of days to get used to it and balance the hula hoop on your waist but don’t give up after just a few tries. Be persistent and you’ll soon get to love this exercise, which is known to burn belly fat. KICKBOX YOUR WAY TO A SLIMMER WAIST: A combination of cardio and martial arts, kickboxing can be an intense workout that is known to help you burn fat. Just an hour of kickboxing can help you burn between 500 to 600 calories in an hour as well as improve your flexibility and coordination. A class usually comprises kickboxing, circuit training and core strengthening exercises. CYCLE DAILY: Just half an hour of cycling daily can work wonders at getting rid of unwanted belly fat. Not only does cycling tone your legs but it also helps you lose weight from the abdomen. Research says that cycling helps you burn approximately 300 calories every hour, builds strength and stamina, and even improves your cardio-vascular fitness. USE A SKIPPING ROPE: Unless you were living under a rock for most of your childhood, most of us would have used a skipping rope as kids either at home or in the garden. Now, it’s time to reach out to the attic and dust out your old rope (or buy a new one). The humble skipping rope can be an effective fat-busting tool that will help you burn calories and tone the abdomen muscles. Just ensure that your posture is correct (stand straight, never slouch) and try to suck in your tummy as you start skipping. Start gradually and slowly increase your pace.–Agencies
