The 10-Minute Workout To Lose Belly Fat & Sculpt Abs in a Month

Belly fat is one of the most stubborn areas to trim down. Your best bet is to combine a healthy diet for fat loss with intense workouts to burn fat and tone up your muscles for beach season. If you are pressed for time, don't worry. You don't need to spend countless hours at the gym to achieve the results you want. In fact, just three 10-minute workouts per week can tip the scales in your favor and help you lose belly fat in 30 days or less.

You need to push yourself as hard as possible with your arm and leg exercises during the 10 minutes. I recommend warming up beforehand if you have time and stretching afterward. However, during the 10 minutes, it should be all-out pushing. Perform each exercise for 45 seconds. Rest for 15 seconds. Repeat the circuit two times for a total of 10 minutes of work. For extra fat loss, add additional rounds.

Read on for the 10-minute workout to help you lose belly fat in 30 days. And next, don't miss The #1 Bodyweight Workout To Shrink Hanging Belly Fat.


Skipping Rope

Skipping rope is amazing cardio and allows you to boost your metabolism when performed all out. Skip rope as hard as possible using double-leg jumps for the full 45 seconds. If you fatigue, do alternating leg skips as you twist the rope. If you cannot jump rope, opt for jumping jacks instead.


Jump Squats

Jump squats are a great metabolic boost. Utilizing the major muscle groups in your lower body, jump squats burn a ton of calories and require maximal effort to perform for the full 45 seconds. When jump squatting, land evenly on your feet, and absorb your force with a quarter squat motion. Do not allow your knees to cave inward as you land. If you fatigue, you can regress to regular squats. Just do not stop moving for 45 seconds, and keep the workout flowing.

Pushups blast your upper body and core, giving your lower body some recovery from the prior two exercises while you keep the pace going with your upper body. This is a great exercise if you want to lose belly fat. If you need to make it easier, elevate your hands or lower your knees to the floor. To increase difficulty, add an explosive clap between each repetition. Aim to find a rhythmic pace for the 45 seconds. Bonus points if you can perform more than 45 pushups without failure.

When it comes to simple and effective ways to burn fat, never underestimate sprints. To sprint, find an open stretch of ground roughly 100 meters long, or a treadmill that has a maximal speed setting. Sprint back and forth for 45 seconds or at your maximum ability on the treadmill. Be sure to use the safety clip when cranking up the treadmill speed.

No metabolic circuit would be complete without burpees. To put it simply, the burpee is a full-body power exercise that demands high-intensity effort to perform. Find an explosive rhythm, and aim to keep your burpee rate going at the same pace for the whole 45 seconds.

To perform burpees, jump up and reach your arms overhead. As you land, drop into a pushup position. Immediately bounce back to your feet, and jump up again for the next repetition.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

Reentry Anxiety Is Real - Why You May Experience It as Stay-at-Home Measures Ease

When the coronavirus stay-at-home orders began in March, most people's lives changed in immeasurable ways. At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious.
