Our lifestyle has evolved to a way that we
have drastically reduced all sorts of physical works ranging from walking to cooking. All the
automatic machines and our attitude to work with full comforts have given rise to change in
metabolic features inside our body. As our diet is changing with our works, more of food that we
intake are not getting churned by the digestive juices resulting in unnecessary storage. One such
eventuality is this belly fats. The fat molecules get accumulated in the adipose tissue beneath the
outer skin layer. The belly region is more prone to this storage as it is very near the abdominal
region where storage can be instantly made without long transportation. Sit ups are an exercise
devised for belly fats that can be done in less time and with great effectiveness to lose belly
One should lie down flat on a flat surface with legs
straight and knees at 90 degrees. Feet should be placed in the ground and it should be parallel to the floor. Hands
should be kept near the ears or below the chin area. With eyes closed deep breaths should be taken so that the
blood circulation will be activated well and mind prepares itself for some physical work. Now, with your belly
region and lower body resting completely on the floor, try to move up the upper portion of the body (above the abs
region) and do a full crunching motion. During this procedure the stress should be concentrated on the belly region
which will strain the abdominal muscles to expend energy. Don't try to pull your neck while doing situps as this
may strain your neck. Do 3 sets of situps with 8 to 12 repetiton each with proper time interval between each set.
This exercise is similar to abdominal crunches except that in crunches you don't need to rise up fully but in
situps you need to rise up fully. Hence situps are very effective than abdominal crunches.
This exercise though can be compatible doing indoors, it is
strongly recommended to be outside as it involves fresh air atmosphere to give rich supply of oxygen to blood in
the body. Breathing procedures are always taken complacently by people as they do not see any direct and immediate
impacts happening. It is not so, and deserves attention. Dress worn during the exercise should be light and should
not hinder your activity. Short trousers and shoes can be useful for comfort levels but it is up to the person’s
wish with his mode of exercising. Air should be exhaled out when you sit and air should be taken in while getting
up. This is very simple logic that stomach constricts while sitting down and vice
Immediate effects cannot be seen as it is a slow and
gradual process. During this exercise the blood gets slightly heated because of the rise in the body temperature.
The blood vessels in the belly fat region will start to show its heating effects in the nearby cells which are
obviously rich in fats. This heating effect will break down the fat molecules present. Other effects are that it
improves fitness of legs and increases the rate of metabolism within the body with rise in temperature. This
exercise will also improve the overall fitness of the body as blood circulation is refreshed every now and then
with fresh air.
