4 Easy Exercises to Lose Baby Weight and Belly Fat After Birth

For many new moms, the abs and bulging belly fat are a real problem area after pregnancy. The best route to a toned midsection is a solid work out, and to help you get the best out of your workout, Fat2Fly has done some research and put together 4 easy exercises for losing stomach fat fast:

1. The Bicycle

An average crunch focuses on the top of your abs, but the bicycle works the hard-to-reach lower portion as well. How do you do it?

First, Lie on your back with your shoulders, hips and pelvis in a neutral position. Clasp your hands behind your head, ready to crunch.

Engage your abs and bring your knees up to about 45 degrees. Slowly begin to pedal with your feet, as you would when riding a bicycle and, at the same time, bring your elbow up to meet the opposite knee; your right elbow touches the left knee, then left elbow touches the right knee. Do 15 repetitions.

2. The Plank

This one is a pretty straightforward strength exercise that works the whole front of your midsection. How do you do it?

First, arrange yourself sideways on the floor so that you’re balancing on your locked arm and the side foot, facing out in front you. Keep your hips raised as high as you can off the ground and hold this position for 30 seconds. Repeat this 3 times on either side.

3. Back Leg Lifts

One of the best ab exercises to get flat abs fast are back leg lifts, which also tone your legs and butt. How do you do it?

Start out on all fours with your hands under your shoulders and knees under your hips. Extend one leg straight behind you, then lift the leg and tighten your abs as you do. Lift the leg above your hip level, and slowly lower it back down. Repeat this 30 times per leg. These are really easy to do, but make sure as you lift each leg you contract your abs to get the full effect.

4. Jump Rope

You can speed up pregnancy weight loss by doing 30 minutes of cardio up to 5 days a week. Jumping rope is a great form of cardio, especially if you don’t have access to good walking and running trails or a treadmill. It’s okay to start slow and work your way up to strenuous workouts, even if all you can do at first is 10 minutes of cardio. Low-impact cardio and aerobics are perfect after pregnancy.
