  1. Squats

    Squats may be considered as one of the most vital aspects of training when it comes to working out since the main task with squatting besides managing the belly fat is to practice balancing while also helping the bowel movement in the body.

    One can also consider them one of the best home cardio for weight loss.

    It could also be one of the easiest and oldest exercises. Squats may help you burn a major amount of calories in a short period.

    The steps involved to perform squats are pretty easy where all you have to do is:

  • Take your squat stance while keeping your feet shoulder-width apart and your feet must be turned slightly instead of pointing straight ahead.
  • Now you have to screw your feet in the ground which means to make proper alignment of your feet with your body to make the body stable while doing squats.
  • Do remember to keep your chest up and stiff while squatting to maintain a proper posture for maximum effect of the squat on the body.
  • Once your stance has been engaged it is time to initiate the squat and to do so you have to push yourself down without moving your legs and come to a sitting position at a 90-degree angle in the air
  • Take a deep breath and then you have to stand up to come to a rest position and this is how to do squats.

  1. Push-Up

    Push-Ups are possibly the most famous and extensively performed exercise set in the world.

    A few points have been discussed here as well.

    Every single person in his/her life has performed or performed push-ups, be it in any variation.

    The basic fundamental behind push-ups is to provide strength, endurance, and shape to the muscles in your shoulders and chest.

    Whilst providing strength push-ups also help in reducing much fat in the body if done in a proper workout program. Push-ups are very easy to perform.

  • To perform a basic push-up you have to lay down facing the ground on your hand and feet.
  • Now, keeping your body stretched you have to push your upper body down and touch your nose to the ground after which you have to wait for one second and then come up to the same position you started with.

    This exercise could be done in many variations but if the basic push-up is hard to perform a person can try the push-up while keeping the knees on the ground and following the same procedure.

  1. Plank

    Another common exercise that could be done at home for strength and training without any equipment is a plank which is very easy to perform but hard to retain and hence gives tremendous results.

    A plank puts pressure on your abdomen, therefore, helping you to reduce belly fat and build better abs, it also helps in developing endurance.

    Planks done in the right way can be very effective. To perform planks all you have to do is:

  • Lay down on the ground the same way it is done in a push-up facing the ground with legs stretched and resting on toes but the twist is that you have to rest your upper body on the ground on your arms like a lion and not on your palms.
  • Now you have to keep your body stretched and stiff in the same position for a certain duration of time without disturbing the posture and staying stiff.

    This is how to perform a plank which may also be done in various variations and duration which can accordingly help you improve abdominal strength, and endurance and reduce belly fat.

  1. Split Squat

  1. Leg Raises

    Leg raises are a very effective yet easy method to build your core without having to make much effort.

    This exercise is best for back pains in the lower regions but the key to successfully managing it is to move the legs in a controlled manner.

  • Now the same you rose your legs you have to move the legs in the same style lower down to where they were in the rest position on the ground but remember not to touch your feet on the floor rather hover them over the ground and keep them still for a moment and then repeat the movement till the duration of this segment of the workout.
