Side fat is the excess flab along the sides of waist. It is commonly known as muffin top and can be removed by doing side fat exercises. These workouts are simple, easy and help you quickly reduce side fat.
So all you need is a mat and 20-30 minutes of your time every other day. In just a few weeks you will be able to reduce lateral fat and achieve a slimmer waist.
Below you will find the best side fat exercises you can try.
1.Side plank with pelvic lift
The starting position is a side plank on the elbow. First do 2-3 sets of 30-40 seconds each, keeping your hips elevated and keeping your body in a straight line. Then perform pelvic raises – 3 sets of 15 reps for the left and right sides of the body.
A key exercise for developing side abs. Lying on your back, place your hands behind your head (only slightly touching it with your fingers and avoiding pressure), then extend one leg and bend the other in the knee. Twisting your abs, lift your shoulders 10-20 cm up, pointing your elbow toward your knee. Complete 3 sets of 15 reps for the left and right sides
3. Side curl lying down
Exercise aimed at flank muscles. Lying on your back, twist your pelvis inward (in other words, press your lower back to the floor). Slightly lift your shoulders, then, exhaling, reach with your left hand to your left leg, straining the lateral abdominal muscles with all your might. Complete 3 sets of 20 repetitions per side.
4. Rock Climbing Exercise
Despite its apparent ease, this exercise requires a good level of fitness. Stand in a plank pose with outstretched arms, tense your abs, pull your leg up to your waist, then twist it slightly to the side. Make sure your pelvis does not drop. Repeat in 3sets of 20 repetitions for each leg.
5. Turns with the ball
Sitting on the floor, raise your bent knees parallel. Take the ball in your hands and begin to make alternating turns to the sides, at the end point touching the floor with the ball. Try to tighten your abdominal muscles as much as possible while moving. 3sets of 20 reps.
