  1. I have always found it harder to loose my belly fat than any other part of my body and I have only been doing a standard sit up to try to tone up my belly with little or no effect 

    I have even tried those muscle toning machines which give you a bit of a shock but still no change at all

    I am going to try out these ab exercises for a couple of weeks and let you know the outcome 

    Do you think I would see a difference in my belly muscle tone in just a few weeks?

    1. hello Matthew
      thanks for the comment, yes you can see the result if you constantly and persist to do these exercise, but always be aware of the diet as well.

  2. Hi!
    Great article on the most important core exercises! I have always struggles with belly fat and ever since incorporating these exercises, I do look more toned and slim!

    Some of these are definitely not easy, but easy is not going to do anything, and I like a challenge! I really love the effectiveness of the bicycle and mountain climbers, because you will literally feel your abs burning!

    How often per week would you recommend these exercises?

    Melanie

    1. hello Melanie
      thanks for the comment, I’m really glad you like it, for the beginner I suggest 2-3 times a week, when your muscles gets stronger, you can do more than that for sure, or you can read my another post about my “workout plan”, maybe you can get some idea from it.

  3. Always follow instructions when on a diet program and never skip a day. Some people don’t see results, simply because they are not following instructions carefully and end up not seeing results. Great post to burn Belly Fat. 

    I like the Mountain Climber. Looks like a great way to burn fat fast!

  4. Hello Bill. Wow, these are amazing exercises. I have been working out at our local ‘Y” for about a month and not really noticing any difference in my abs or obliques. These exercises look like they will do the trick and the videos really help to see how they should be done, properly. I can’t wait to add these to my workouts. So simple, and no extra equipment needed – my kind of exercises. 

    Thanks for adding the links to Part 1 and 2. I will definitely check them out and bookmark them.

    1. hello Mary
      thanks for the comment, do each of the exercise properly is most important, it can decrease the risk to get hurt, and remember to have to right diet, so you can see the result faster.

  5. I am doing the planking and I do see the change in my body, my belly and arms are firmer. I am now ready for the core exercise. The Flutter kick looks simple but it is not as easy as the youtube guy does it. I could only manage it if my legs are higher. I am going to do all the easy level first, we will see if next month I can do the Russian Twist. Will keep you posted. Thanks Bill!

    1. hello Nuttanee
      thanks for the comment, in order to feel the muscle and do the movement correctly, start from the easy level is a smart choice, well done, hope everything goes well on you.

  6. Excellent tips Bill,

    I’m glad to know that I’ve actually done all of your exercises, yaay! Surprisingly the bicycle exercise is simple to do but the Russian twist is a bit annoying though, looks easy but it’s actually quite tiring. I managed to that every day and I increase my limit to 20 reps now. I’m curious though, lately, whenever I do the Russian twist, my muscles hurt. Is that considered a muscle tear?

    1. hello Riaz Shah
      thanks for the comment, when you feel the pain, it means your muscle start to grow or you get hurt(from the wrong movement), so give yourself a rest first, and eat the right diet, feel better and do it again, you will find out the pain for next time get less after this recovery.
