11 Killer Exercises to Lose Lower Belly Fat (Videos)
8. Double Leg Circles Workout
Double Leg Circles are a great exercise for strengthening your thigh, calf, and important core muscles groups like your hip flexors and lower abdominal muscles. Having a strong core and lower half is beneficial for everyday activities like walking, sitting up, bending over and climbing stairs.
Here’s how to do them:
To begin, lie flat on your back. Place your hands under your hips with your palms facing down and your legs straight in front of you, feet together.
Next, raise your feet about 12 inches off the ground, and tighten your stomach muscles. Hold this position for about 15-20 seconds, or until you start to feel a burn.
Then, with your feet still together, swing them in controlled circles clockwise. Start out making small circles and progressively make your circles bigger and bigger.
Resume the starting position by bringing your feet back out in front of you, and slowly lowering them to the ground.
Try doing 8-10 circles in a clockwise motion. Then repeat, going counter-clockwise.
