Hi, I'm Ashleigh Gass, strength and conditioning specialist with brilliantathlete.com. We're going to talk about the best exercise to lose belly fat. However, before we look at the best exercise, we're going to talk about other things that'll help you lose belly fat. Number one, you've got to make sure that nutritionally, you're eating really, really well. Number two, overall strength training is also very important. When you combine strength training with good nutrition, you're going to lose belly fat. The third thing to consider is abdominal posture. When I'm standing from the side here, I can make myself look like I have belly fat when, in fact, I just have poor abdominal posture. How do I change that? I bring my belly button in towards my spine and I just gently tuck my bum under. This is a posture that'll help you look like you don't have belly fat, but it'll also help with lower back pain. Now, let's take a look at one of the best exercises to help lose belly fat, and you could do this in the morning. So I would just start in a full situp position at the top. I would control my lowering down, and then I would use a little bit of speed to lift myself back up again. So again, I would control my lowering down, use a bit of speed to help get back up again. So an exercise like that can be done on a daily basis. You might start with three or four reps if you're a beginner, and if you're more advanced, you might be able to do 15, 20, 25 reps. But the bottom line is, is when you're looking to lose belly fat, you've got to combine good abdominal exercises with overall strength training and a lot better nutritional habits.
