Melting the stubborn abdominal fat and getting back into shape can be quite difficult task to do, no matter how much we exercise or how carefully we eat. The reason for this could be a slow metabolism as it slows down the body`s rate at which in burns calories.
If you practice some weight loss regime, you may have experienced slower burning of calories than previously. This is due to the fact that when you begin to lose weight, your metabolism slows down, which can be really frustrating. But, don’t worry, this shows that you’re on the right path!
Part of the metabolic rate is fixed according to the genes you’re born with, however, there is a simple, but effective workout that can help you shirk your waist circumference and get rid of belly fat by increasing your metabolism.
The workout regimen presented in this article is designed to increase bone mass and build muscle. The best part is that it can be completed in less than 5 minutes, which makes it ideal for anyone, including those who are pressed for time.
You should begin with one set of each move until you become comfortable enough and prepared to work up to doing 5 sets prior to moving onto the next.
PLANK WALK TUCK REACH
Begin with your feet together and the arms up. Then, hinge at your hips and bring your hands to the floor and maintain your legs as straight as possible. Next, you need to walk your hands forward along the floor, lowering the buttock as you go until you are in plank position and the body is straight. Afterwards, jump your feet forwards to meet your hands and you’ll be in a crouching position. Next, reverse the move, that is, jump back to plank, walk the hands backward to the feet, and then stand up with the arms raised. Do this for 30 seconds.
When you increase the number of sets, rest for 30 to 60 seconds between each so that the body can recover.
X SWITCH JUMPS
Begin with your feet together and then jump into a diagonal lunge. In order to perform this move, you should imagine a clock on the floor and then put the right foot at 2 o`clock and the left at 8 o`clock. Don’t let your knee go past the ankle. Jump once again, switching the legs. This time, the left leg should be at 10 o`clock while the right at 4 o`clock. Perform this exercise for 30 seconds with a high intensity (one set). Again, rest for a minute between each set.
BEAR CRAWL ESCAPE
Begin in the plank position, keeping the wrists in line with the shoulders. Bend the knees and place them under the hips, with the heels lifted. Jump from side to side, making sure the heels don’t touch the floor. Then jump back to a plank position before going back to the position in which the knees are placed under the hips.
Like in the previous exercise, do this exercise with high intensity for half a minute and then rest for 30-60 seconds.
WHY DOES IT WORK?
The effectiveness of this workout lies in the interval training. This regimen allows you to alternate between intervals of the exercise of high intensity and this is done within a short period of time. The rest period additionally increases the metabolic rate and it helps burn more calories by boosting the metabolism.
