Losing belly fat is easier said than done, but a concerted effort always gets paid no matter what the target is. You just have to learn the ropes, apply them regularly, and get awarded with a flat-like-a-plate belly. What else do you want when everyone in your friends circle, praise you for having such a fit body, with no fat bulging from the belly & around the waist.

Let me assure that with simple running tips you can get to look years younger than your age and get admired wherever you go. Let’s see how.

TEMPO RUNNING: The old formula of running at a normal pace initially, then galloping for a fixed time, again coming down to a sober speed, and finishing off with another lightning pace, can never go unrewarded. Take my word do interval running to boost metabolism and prune belly fat. When you try running like explained above your legs get stronger while the fat around the waist, belly and chest, gets absorbed, adjusted, & toned, so there’s no loss of weight, rather a huge fat consolidation.

Distance Matters: Belly fat removal doesn’t come by with Push-ups, Chin-ups, even by rope skipping, squats, etc. You got to lose body fat from everywhere you can think of. So, running is the only option you need to apply, and see the calories burning as if your whole body has caught fire. A 10 minute a mile pace can slash 45 calories from your body, every 5 minutes. So the longer you run, the more calories you get to burn.

High Knees Running: Practice running by kicking your knees as high-up in the air as they can go, without making you fall down on the ground. Yes! It’s another stupid but a time-tested trick that tones-up the abs. Run like that for a minute, stop and take rest for another minute, and then resume. Do it 2 to 3 times; you’ll see a visible improvement in your belly shape.

Challenge Yourself: Try to gather speed 1 to 2 times between runs; like go at a sober pace, say 10 minutes per mile, for 10 minutes, then suddenly build-up speed, say 6 to 7 minutes a mile pace; keep going like that for a couple of minutes, then go back to normal running. You’ll love this style of running, plus acheive wash-board abs at the end.
