The joy of watching your babies grow is equivalent to that of a kid in a candy store. But what’s better that losing the traces of what used to be abs and now a sagging tummy skin. Here are the top 8 exercises to lose that belly fat

Before we get into the exercises, please note that the following won’t be effective if you don’t watch what you eat. And one should see a doctor before trying out any of them

1.      Cardiovascular exercises
These help lose the weight or fat gained during pregnancy. They are very gentle and easy exercises which include; walking, swimming and riding a bicycle. These help during the first few weeks after pregnancy.

2.      Scissor kicks
These are done by raising each leg straight off the ground in interchanging intervals. Lie flat on the ground with hands and back flat. Now lift and lower your left leg then do the same for the right leg and do this for about 15 reps

3.      Squat
Keep shoulders relaxed and spine in neutral position. The chest should be lifted as butt should stay above the knees. A great notice should be taken on the pelvic; it should be pointed. This should be done for about 15 reps

4.      Mountain climber
This involves getting in the “Get set” position of athletes. Start by getting in the push up position (back, spine, butt, legs in a straight line), then lift your left leg forward and the back, do the same for the right leg and repeat this for about 15 times

5.      Bicycle
Lay flat on your back, raise both legs. Engage your transverse abdominals to be pulled in and down, then raise both legs in a 90-degree angle; lower one heel slowly to touch the floor and repeat this for the other heel interchangeably. Do this for about 20 reps engaging your core.

6.      Weighted bridge
This is done by placing exercise sand bags on your hip area raising the hips into the hips into the air then exhaling. Legs should be raised and feet and back kept flat on the ground. Therefore only the hips are involved and this can be done for 20 reps.

7.      Soldier crawl
Just like soldiers crawling on the ground using their elbows; lie down on the ground with your stomach facing down, then support yourself by your elbows and do a soldier crawl

8.      Bupees
This is a sequential exercise that goes from squatting, kicking the feet back, pushing up, squatting again and lastly standing and then jumping. The sequence is then repeated for like 10 times
