To address one of the most typical displeasures of women today with their bodies, we made a list of some of the best exercises to reduce belly fat for female at home. Bulging tummies vex millions of women (and men) today. An increasingly stressful life, escalating physical inactivity, and permeation of processed food in ones daily diet, are just some of its main causes. Not being able to wear a bikini or midriff and slim-fit jeans without feeling embarrassed is actually the least of the problem. A growing midsection could be a precursor to some serious illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and heart disorders.

It is true that not every person has the luxury of both time and money to join a gym, enroll in a spinning or dance class, or hire a personal trainer. But we are sure that most can find a way to use 15-20 minutes of their day, 3-4 times a week, to banish their love handles.

Here are some excellent exercises to reduce belly fat for females that you can do at home:

  1. Bicycle Crunches


  • Start by lying on your back on a yoga mat with both palms placed at the back of your head, thereby lifting it a few inches off the floor. Meanwhile, your legs are kept straight and slightly raised off the floor.


  • Simultaneously bend your left leg and raise and twist your upper body until your right elbow almost touches your left knee. Do the same sequence with your left elbow almost touching your right knee as you return your left leg to starting position. Continue doing this alternating movement for 30 counts to make one set. Do 2 to 3 sets of this exercise.


  • Remember to tighten and squeeze your abdomen every time you bring an elbow close to the opposite side knee. This exercise works out both your front and side abdomen.


  1. Hip Raise with Leg Extension

  • Lie flat on a yoga mat with your arms on your side and palm down on the floor. Bend your knees to bring your feet close to your buttocks with both heels lying flat on the floor.


  • Lift your hips and buttocks off the floor as high as you can while tightening your abdominal muscles then extend one leg with toes pointed. Do this sequence repeatedly with alternating legs for 30 counts to make one set. Do 2 to 3 sets per workout.


  • This exercise targets your abdomen, lower back, waist, buttocks, and legs.


  1. Russian Twist with Weights


  • This exercise, which is great for your glutes, arms, and oblique muscles, is best performed with a kettlebell, a dumbbell or a weight plate. If you don’t have any of those at home, you can use a heavy book, volleyball or other objects of similar size that you can safely grasp with both hands.


  • Sit down on a yoga mat while holding the object up with both hands at the same level as your chest. Bend your knees and lift your feet off the floor while leaning your back a few degrees until your torso and thighs form.


  • Slowly twist your body to the right and lower the object you are holding until they are close to your right hip. Hold that position for 2-3 seconds while tightening your abdomen, then return to starting position. Do the same movement to your other side. Repeat this alternating sequence for 20 counts to make one set. Perform 2 to 3 sets per workout.


  • It is better if you can maintain your feet elevated a few inches off the floor during the entire exercise.


  1. Planking with Side Twists

  • Start with the regular planking position wherein your entire straight body is supported by your toes and forearms. Remember to tighten your abdomen and to hold for 5 to 10 seconds when you assume and every time you return to this position.


  • Twist your body to your right while lifting your right arm and placing it on your right hip. Hold for 2-3 seconds, and then return to the starting position. Do this movement repeatedly in alternatingly left and right sequences until you reach 20 counts. Do 2 to 3 sets.


  1. Wide Stance Squats with Leg Raises


  • Start in a standing position with your legs widely apart and your hands placed at the back of your head.


  • Squat as low as you can by bending your knees and pushing out your buttocks backwards. Hold this position for 2-3 seconds then go back up to the standing position. Next, raise your right leg with bent knee, and bend your upper body sideways bringing your right elbow to almost touch your raised right knee. Return to the starting position and do the same movement with your left elbow and knee.


  • Do this alternating sequence until you reach 20 counts to make a complete set. Do at least 2 to 3 sets per workout.
