It is almost impossible to lose belly fat with just two exercises. But, if you are a true believer you can achieve this. According to Alwyn Cosgrove, one of the world’s best trainer a dumbbell swing and a squat thrust can do the trick.
If you still don’t believe this try thinking about the Cosgrove’s response: “Running is just one exercise, but no one questions that when it comes to burning fat.”
First of all, you should try to understand the principle of your routine. It is recommended to do 15 repetitions of the kettlebell swing, and a dumbbell is also considered a nice option.
After this you need to do 15 repetitions of your squat trust, and then go for 14 repetitions of the swing. And at the end another, 14 repetitions of the squat trust. Keep in mind that you should NOT make any breaks between your repetitions. Stay in the same place until you reach the goal.
It may look really easy, but if your count it right you will get 120 repetitions of each exercise which is a total of 240 repetitions. Another great thing to try this challenge is that they also engage your whole body.
You should do each repetition for 2 seconds, and that will take 12 minutes of your day to finish the 240 repetitions.
It is recommended to start with a lower number of repetitions if you can’t follow the intensity. As the time passes you should gradually increase that number. From these workouts, your metabolism will keep going for hours after you finish your workout. You can call this a low-impact workout at a high intensity.
Do not count this as a complete workout program. If you are already active, just implement this in your routine, or find some other exercises that will complement this. And we assure you that this is better than 15 minutes on the treadmill.
Take the kettlebell in your hands and bend your hips. Start swinging back and then squeeze the glutes and trust your hips forward. You should bring the weight to your shoulder line. Remember that you shouldn’t do anything with force. Your lower back should be straight all the time. Reverse and then swing the kettlebell back between your legs. Continue swinging the kettlebell back and forth.
Stand with your feet apart. Get in a squat position and get your body low enough to make sure you can put your hands on the floor. From this position, throw your body into a pushup position and then reverse the move. When you get in the starting position you’ve finished one repetition. You can also spice this up by jumping up from your squat position.
