Grab a Set of Dumbbells For This Total-Body HIT Workout to Fight Belly Fat


If you want to lose belly fat, experts agree on three things: One, dialing in your diet is a must — you can’t out-train lousy food. Two, strength training is critical. NASM-certified personal trainer Sam Altieri said three to four sessions a week is the sweet spot for most people.
That brings us to number three.
Jade Jenny, head coach, and owner of Champlain natural depression CrossFit told us that while crunches will not erase your belly fat, hours of steady-state cardio also isn’t the best option.
The most effective type of cardio that is tested to focus on belly fat is high-intensity interval coaching (HIIT).

Beachbody trainer Autumn Calabrese, creator of the 21 Day Fix and 80 Day Obsession fitness and nutrition programs, told FitnessCracker, “Eating clean, healthy foods is a huge step in the right direction, but if you want less belly fat, we need to burn calories and build lean muscle.” She added, “If you push during your workout, you can keep it to 30 minutes.”
So while you’re eating nutritious food and tracking your calories or macros (if you choose), you can use this half-hour workout to burn calories, build muscle, and fight belly fat. This workout combines dumbbell moves with bursts of cardio intervals. It’s fun and fast-paced. Let’s go!
Total-Body Dumbbell Workout
Equipment needed: One or 2 sets of dumbbells (five to twenty-five pounds).

Directions: Complete every exercise below for forty-five seconds, followed by a 15-second rest.
Repeat this 10-move circuit thrice for a 30-minute exercising.
The goal is to keep moving for each 45-second interval, so choose an appropriate dumbbell weight that challenges you but also allows you to complete the reps without stopping. Using different dumbbells for different exercises is OK.
