Do Ab Exercises Help You Burn Belly Fat?
The Best Exercises For Fat Loss
Your usual whole-body exercises definitely speed up your metabolism to burn calories, thus burn fat. Any aerobic exercises (also known as cardio) may also be effective at targeting visceral fat. For both of these exercises, the exercise intensity also plays an important role. Moderate or high-intensity exercises can reduce belly fat in contrast to low-intensity due to differences in raising heart rates.
Combining multiple types of exercises may be effective.
High-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE) is another approach that’s been found to reduce body fat more efficiently compared to standard aerobic exercises. HIIE is simply put, a type of interval training that combines short bursts of high-intensity exercises followed by slightly longer and less intense recovery periods.
And it is a well-known fact that doing ab workouts are more effective after cardio–so why not try doing ab exercises after a session of HIIE? After all, summer is here already and we want to be out there bathing in the sun rather than being self-conscious about how we look in our bathing suits.
