Most people know weight loss can be achieved by eating less and moving more. After losing a few pounds, dieters will often want to tone up and build visible muscles. Burning belly fat is no easy task but combining both cardio and abs exercises can give the best results and help slimmers see definition.
While a healthy diet is definitely important for weight loss, regular exercise will speed up the results.

Mays said: “This one is a burner for sure. Start with a one minute hold. See if you can hold longer than one minute.
“Plank pose is an all over body toner, but it works the core hard. Repeat three times.”
“If you want strong obliques, this is the pose you’ll want to hold as you lift those hips high to the sky. Place your palm on the ground for more advanced or resting on the forearm for a little easier, stack both feet on top of each other with straight legs and lift the hips up and hold for one minute.
