Fat burning exercises play a key role in getting a flat stomach. They melt the fat off your midsection and your entire body, giving your abs a chance to peak though and giving you an overall slim and slender look. You need a combination of these exercises and a healthy eating diet to get a sexy figure.

My all time favorite fat burning workout is:
Jumping Rope.

Jumping rope is such a great exercise for close to an entire body workout and is incredibly effective in burning fat. You shouldn’t do it if you are severely overweight or have bad knees.

Walk, Jog, or Sprint UPHILL

Using an incline adds great intensity to regular walking, jogging or sprinting. So the next time you’re at the gym and you have the incline set to 0, pump it up to level 2 or 3 and notice how much more you sweat and see those calories burn off quicker.


Talk about feeling the burn! Squats are super effective in burning calories and shaping your thighs. They are one of the best fat burning exercises for your thighs. You’ll build lower body strength and get rid of cellulite, saddle bags, and any other unsightly condition plaguing that area.


Pushups require a lot of strength and energy during the repetitions, which is why they are fantastic at burning calories and keeping fat off your upper body. You can do variations of the pushup by widening the distance of your arms. If your arms are wider than your shoulders, then you build up your shoulders, and if your arms are closer together you focus on your chest. Once you get more advanced you can also do the one handed version with your other hand behind your back. They are difficult, but if you can do them you know you’ve progressed, so bravo!

Whole Body Circuits

Combine your abdominal exercises with push ups, pull ups, squats and lunges. Increase intensity by using free weights. Do 6 exercises per circuit at a high intensity for 30 seconds, with a 15 second rest in-between. The squat and dumbbell swing is a great whole body exercise (squat while swinging the dumbbell, holding it in the opposite hand with each squat).

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a FANTASTIC Fat Burning Exercise

High intensity interval workouts can include sprinting, cycling, rowing or any cardiovascular exercise. You do these exercises for times varying from 30 seconds to 2 minutes at a level so intense you feel like dying if you go any longer. Then you lower the intensity for whatever time you set, then bring back the high intensity. High intensity interval training has been the most effective fat burning technique I’ve ever used. And studies show that you burn more calories per workout when you do intervals of varying intensity, so get your HIIT on!
