It also improves your posture, core muscles, and blood flow and tones your belly. Here’s a list of exercises that will target that belly fat.
Weighted Hula Hooping
Hula hooping is known as a terrific method to burn more calories while keeping your core active. Weighted hula hoops are better for beginners since they are more manageable, and the workout is more effective.
Keep the hula hoop in place as you perform standing twists using your hands. For 5-10 seconds, rotate the upper body to the right before repeating it on the other side while keeping your legs steady and shoulder-width apart. Repetitions and sets can be increased as the exercise becomes easier. In this way, your core muscles will be more engaged, and you’ll target that belly fat.
A Russian twist is a variation of a standing twist that can be done while seated on the ground with a hula hoop placed in front of you and your legs up. This position requires you to do 5-10 seconds of right-to-left hula-hooping.
Sitting in the same position as before, lean slightly back and raise your legs. Then drop your legs, however, don’t allow them to touch the ground before bringing your legs back up, so your body takes on a V-shape.
