You’re not alone if your beach season and long-term fitness goal is to tone up and lose fat (especially in your midsection). Belly creases are extremely inconvenient, as they are typically caused by an overabundance of fat. When you’re sitting down, you might can really notice them, and your stomach might fold a bit. But don’t worry because we have just the right game plan for you to follow in order to lose belly fat and get rid of belly creases.
Here are some of my favorite toning exercises to help you get rid of belly creases. Take a look at the list below.
1 — Dumbbell Crunch
Lie down flat on your back with your legs bent. With your arms fully extended, hold a pair of dumbbells in each hand. Starting at the top of the movement, come up high enough to hard flex your abs. As you reach the top of the rep, exhale and then lower yourself back down to the starting position. Do 3 sets of 15 repetitions.
2 — Landmine Rotations
Put a barbell into a landmine attachment to begin this exercise. With your feet shoulder-width apart from one another, grasp the end of the bar with both hands and hold it out in front of you with your core taut. Rotate the barbell to one side of your body by pivoting your feet in that direction, keeping your core tight. Turn the bar around so that it faces the other way, keeping tension in your core. Do 3 sets of 10 reps on each side.
3 — Decline Bench Leg Raise
Raise your legs and place them over the decline bench, then position your upper back on it with your arms holding the handle. Make your lower back flat before beginning to lift your feet. Kick up your legs as high as you can when they are in front of you. At the top, tense Your abs hard and slowly lower under control, keeping tension in your core. Repeat until you’ve completed three sets of ten to fifteen reps.
4 — Band Rotation Chop
For this exercise, you’ll wrap a resistance band around a strong beam and step to the side to get tension on it. With both hands, hold the end of the band with a pronated (overhand) grip and a wide stance. Keep your core taut while rotating the band across your body from the upper back. During each range of motion, flex your obliques before returning to starting position. For each side, do 3 sets of 15 reps.
