5 Yoga poses for belly fat
The abdominal muscles play an important role in the body. These are the ones in charge of keeping the body upright, with good posture and adequate strength. The abdominals allow us to keep the axis balanced when performing any common activity such as jumping, running, walking, or sitting.
Having a strong abdomen helps us keep the digestive system’s organs in the right place, protects them, and prevents flaccidity from damaging them. From this principle, people give greater importance to burning fat and having proper training through aerobic exercises.
Today we will show how to train your abs through 5 very simple yoga poses. These exercises will help us gain strength, calm anxiety, gain energy, maintain balance and gain agility.
1. Boat or paripurna navasana
This exercise is performed sitting on a mat, resting your feet on the floor.
Then we must contract the abdominals, keep the back straight and raise the legs, taking them off the floor until a “ V” has been formed with the body.
You have to maintain that posture for one or two minutes.
2. Bridge or setu bandhasana
Lying on our back, we must flex our legs.
Pull the shoulders back and touch the heels with the hands without taking the feet off the ground. We must bring the hips up and take it off the ground as much as possible, creating a back bridge.
3. Cobra or bhujangasana
This one is simple. We just have to place our hands at chest level and rest our palms on the floor.
Then raise ourselves by stretching the arms, with the back straight and contracting the abdomen.
We support ourselves with the tip of the foot. We must maintain this posture for two or three minutes and repeat the process 5 or 10 times.
4. Plank with elbows
You should perform this pose in a similar way to the normal plank posture, only here we will not have our arms stretched out, and we will lean on our elbows, always contracting the abdominals to keep our back straight.
You have to form a straight line from the feet to the head and hold the posture for 2 or 3 minutes.
5. Stretched boat
In this position, a perfect “V” is not formed with the body, but the legs are only slightly separated from the ground.
