Fitness trainer Kayla Itsines has shared a new video on Instagram that showed a few specifically designed workouts to burn stubborn belly fat. Belly fat is one of the most difficult things to target. Not only does it look unappealing, it also increases the risk of health conditions like diabetes and heart disease. Also, people tend to skip regular workouts due to time constraints. What if they get a quick and short workout solution? Kayla says the exercises she has designed to burn belly fat is fast and quick but definitely not easy. "If you are looking for a challenge, these workouts have been designed with you in mind!" she adds in the caption.

The video shows Kayla working out with only a mat. She says the programme is perfect for completing at home with minimal equipment but it can be done at the gym too. "These exercises focus on strengthening your core, so get ready to feel the burn!" she added.
Kalya also showed 5 of her favourite ab exercises - Flutters, Russian Twist, Alternating Jackknife, Side Plank & Oblique Crunch, and X Mountain Climbers - which, she said "will definitely give your core a workout".
In the video, she also showed how to do these exercises. Each exercise is to be done for 30 seconds and then the cycle is to be repeated. Usually, Kayla transitions from one exercise pattern to another quite easily but for beginners, it is advised that they take a 30-second break.
