Ok, so you are having trouble with belly fat or visceral fat or both! You want to know what exercises reduce belly fat?? Good news. I am going to lay out the best 8 exercises to do!

Before we jump into it. There is a common misconception that you have to do lots of ab and core exercises to reduce belly fat. That is just not the case luckily. It just comes down to a few things. The main way to reduce belly fat is from a calorie deficit through physical activity and your calorie intake. Your stress level and lean muscle content will also play a large role in getting rid of that dangerous visceral fat.

Before I get into the actual exercise I just want to drive home the point that just targeting the abs with just and abs exercises is called muscle targeting. It does not work well for burning fat in a specific area. Targeting only works for building muscle. The body just does not work that way.

The body will reduce overall body fat from different areas of the body as it needs more energy. So if you are in a calorie deficit your body will just burn fat from wherever it is stored. It is different for everyone. Some people have large amounts stored around the love handles and others round the legs and calves or face.

The bottom line is if you want to reduce belly fat, just reduce your overall fat by burning more calories. That does not mean to go on a crash diet or starve yourself either. That is just not sustainable and will yo-yo you back to where you started and or even worse than before. So this what you do...

Step 1. Diet.

Make sure your calories intake is just under what your body needs to maintain your current weight. If you are not sure you can use a free app like It is easy to use and will give you a great start!

Step 2. Full Body Exercises.

Choose full body exercises to reduce belly fat. Full body exercises utilize more energy and burn more calories, so you will end up burning more fat! Also there is an added benefit. Full body moves will build muscle faster! The more muscle you have, the more belly fat you lose!

So here we go!. Here are the 8 exercises to reduce belly fat:

  1. Stair Run!

Try sprinting up 4 to 5 flights of stairs as fast as you can without losing form. Make sure to warm up for 5 minutes first. I like to do this exercise fasted a couple times a week first thing in the morning. It takes me 12 minutes. Keep it to 60 seconds of running and 60 seconds of rest. If you are a beg
