The best belly flab exercises are a combination of exercises that tone the muscles in the abdominal region and exercises that get the heart rate up so that the body can burn fat. Abdominal exercises include sit-ups, crunches, and a variety of floor exercises in which the legs are raised from the floor in intervals. Good fat-burning exercises include rapid walking, hiking, jogging, and bicycling. By sticking to a healthy diet and doing these two kinds of exercises, there is a good chance that belly flab will soon be a thing of the past. However, if belly flab exercises are performed alone and are not combined with a healthy diet, it is likely that the flab will persist or only shrink incrementally.

For people who are looking to lose belly flab quickly, it is good follow an exercise regimen a few times a week that includes sections of exercise that work the entire body as well as sections of belly flab exercises. There are also a few varieties of exercise that include quite a few good belly flab exercises. Pilates is a kind of exercise that strengthens the muscles in the core of one's body. As such, many of the movements in pilates can double as belly flab exercises.

The same is true for yoga. Many of the poses that are practiced in yoga rely on strength in the abdominal muscles. As such, many yogic movements and poses can also function as belly flab exercises. In order to find the best and most effective belly flab exercises, it is great to try out a few different options, find the ones that are both enjoyable and effective, and stick with them.

Although cardio exercises do not always target belly flab, they are great for losing weight in general. As many people tend to carry weight in the area around their bellies, taking cardio classes or following cardio exercise tapes can be a great way to lose weight all over the body including in the belly area. It is generally not possible to lose weight and firm just one area of the body. A person looking to get rid of belly flab is likely to also lose weight in other parts of the body in the process. People who perform exercises targeting other areas of the body such as the arms or legs are also likely to lose a bit of belly flab if they've got it.
