Having a fat belly is no sin but due to the fashion trends within the society having a big belly is considered as a disadvantage.
Why you have fat belly? This depends on numerous facts but one of major factors is Stress and Cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that’s essential for survival. It’s produced by the adrenal glands and is known as a “stress hormone” because it helps your body to mount a stress response. Unfortunately, it can lead to weight gain when produced in excess, especially in the abdominal region.
Getting rid of your belly bulge is important for more than just vanity’s sake. Excess abdominal fat particularly visceral fat, the kind that surrounds your organs and puffs your stomach into a “beer gut” is a predictor of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, and some cancers.
So the above writing explains a few reasons as to why you have a big stomach. But it also continues and tells you that effect that may incur when you have a big belly.
Well, worry not of the big belly and all you have to do is just practice these below two exercises that will help you end your fat belly terror.
1). Kettlebell (or Dumbbell) Swing
Bend at your hips and hold a kettlebell (or dumbbbell) with both hands at arm’s length in front of you. Now rock back slightly and “hike” kettlebell between your legs. Then squeeze your glutes, thrust your hips forward forcefully, and swing the weight to shoulder height. Allow momentum to swing the weight—you’re not trying to actively lift it with your arms.
Reverse the movement, so that you swing the kettlebell between your legs again. Make sure you don’t round your lower back at any time; it should stay naturally arched when you bend at your hips. Continue to swing back and forth.
2). Squat Thrust
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Bending at your hips and knees, squat down and lower your body until you can place your hands on the floor. Kick your legs backward—into a push up position—and then immediately reverse the move and quickly stand up from the squat.
