If you want to lose your gut, you need to work as many muscles as possible. The burpeedoes just that. The explosive exercise – which entails going from a pushup position to a jump and back to a pushup position – hits every muscle from head to toe.
In fact, a recent study from the American College of Sports Medicine found that 10 fast-paced reps are just as effective at revving your metabolism as a 30-second all-out sprint, so you can burn your belly fat faster than ever before.
DO IT: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower your body until your palms rest on the floor about shoulder-width apart. Kick your legs backward into a pushup position, perform a pushup, and then quickly reverse the movement and perform a jump when you stand. That’s 1 rep.
