When you want to lose belly fat, you should focus on exercises that work multiple muscle groups at once and use enough resistance to challenge your muscles, rev up your metabolism and put your body in fat-burning mode.

Reps: These exercises can be done as many times as you want.
1. Jump Squats
Jump squats work your lower body’s big muscles. Compared to air squats, this exercise is harder because of the quick jump. If you find it hard to jump, you can do squats instead.
Stand with your feet about hip-width apart to do jump squats. Squat until your hips are about one-third to one-half of the way down. Keep your back straight and neutral.
Explode quickly with both feet and jump up, getting off the floor. Do a half squat when you land and then jump right into the next repetition. You can repeat this as many times as you like.
