Hi, my name is Tanya Batts. I'm a Personal Trainer at Gold's Gym. I want to talk to you about how to lose belly fat in middle aged women. The things you will need for this are some dumbbells, a mat and some space. So a great way to start, I like to think about the treadmill because you got to get your heart rate up or just go on a walk outside. To kind of walk for a mile and then maybe sprint a mile, then back to the walk, back to the sprint, great ways to kind of get the heart rate up and it's just a great way to burn those calories. You really got to get up and get moving if you want to lose weight, you got to get the cardio. But, to talk about lose this belly fat, once you're warmed up and kind of just walking on the treadmill, you do want to do an incline as well 'cause that's going to focus on the butt and in the middle and the core, you want to pull the belly in all day long even if you're in the treadmill, wherever you are, pull the belly in, that's actually an abdominal exercise. But, let me show you some more exercises. So, I'm just going to take these weights. I'm going to sit tall, my low back is straight, my abs are in. You can grab a weight if you want and I'm just going to go from side to side. That's getting all the muscles, the middle, the side, my arms are long. Whew! Unbelievable! I'm absolutely feeling that one. Alright, we're going to come down, one vertebrae at a time. So, the lowest part of the belly, belly seems to be a really challenging area to work. I'm going to show you an exercise that's going to help you out. One knee over the hip than the other. Abs are in, you can use your hands as a triangle. I'm going to lower one foot out and then down and then do the other one. That's working the lowest part of the abdominal muscles. Whew! And then one more. Whew! Another one? My head is on the floor, I'm comfortable, my knees are bent, my arms are wide, the palms are up; reverse curl. That's working the upper part. So, I've showed you three. The first one work the sides, the second one work the lowest; this one's working the upper. Alright. So, those are just a few exercises that you can do that will really target that belly area.
