If you want to lose your abdominal fat you need to work out as many muscles as you can. The burpee is a dynamic exercise where you go from a pushup position to a jump and back to a pushup position. It will surely engage every muscle in your body.

3. The Side Plank

One powerful exercise is the side plank. What you need to do is to lie on you right side, your legs must be extended and your feet and hips on the floor. Then you’ll contract your muscles and lift your hips and knees off the floor.
