If you are looking to lose weight and get back in shape, this article is for you. First of all, you need to focus on the basics: eating with a calorie deficit, training regularly for strength, and doing cardio. When you get into these healthy habits, the fat will begin to melt. There are different types of fat in your body and in today’s article we will talk about visceral fat, which is the fat that surrounds your organs, and the best floor exercises ever to increase the burning of visceral fat.
Having a high amount of visceral fat can lead to serious health complications, such as heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes, which is why burning it is so important (via WebMD). Fortunately, the fat that surrounds our organs is easier to lose than the subcutaneous (the stubborn fat under the skin).
To increase your visceral fat burning, you need to select higher intensity exercises, involving HIIT cardio and strength-training movements that challenge your body. If you’d rather work out at home or don’t have access to fitness equipment, there are some floor movements you can incorporate into your routine that can help. Start doing the following exercises as soon as possible to increase your visceral fat burning. Perform 3 to 4 sets of these movements one at a time or back to back in a loop.
