3 Ways To Burn Belly Fat While You Run
You eat right, you exercise often but the belly pooch just won't go. Try these 3 tricks on your next run to blast that belly a little more.
Change Your Pace Often
High intensity interval training (HIIT) is proven to reduce belly fat and spike your metabolism; instead of running at the same pace for the entire workout, try alternating between stretches of pushing your body to the max and periods of recovery.
Go the Distance
We've said it before: you can't spot treat when it comes to weight loss. The trick is to decrease overall body fat and the one way to do that is to burn calories. Making your run a little longer will do just that. Every five minutes of running at a 10-minute-per-mile pace burns about 45 calories. Think about that on your next run for some motivation to keep it up!
One of the simplest ways to tone your belly and strengthen your core. Concentrate on using your abs rather than your leg muscles to kick your knees up as high as you can. Incorporate this in to your run and watch that body fat diminish to expose a nice toned tummy.
