Hip Raise Exercises  


Reducing belly fats and having a healthy abs region can be achieved with appropriate exercise routines and diet. Practicing physical exercises each and every day helps people to maintain a prominent waist line and stiff muscles. On the whole, by doing these exercises we induce more metabolic cycles in our body to burn more calories than what we eat each and every day. The metabolic cycles near the belly region can be increased by doing belly fat reduction exercises. One such exercise is discussed here which targets the belly region and mainly the abdominal muscles on the front side of the stomach along with the muscles which supports the lower back.



One should lie down straight in the exercise mat and place your hands on either side of the body with palms facing down. When you are in the position just take a deep breath and make yourself ready for the workout. Gently lift your legs such that both the legs are perpendicular to the floor and the foot is facing the ceiling. Now thrust your hips up and raise those hips completely off the exercise mat to about 1 or 2 inches. Hold the position for 2 seconds and then lower your hips. Hold the position for few seconds and then raise the hips again to your previous position. This exercise is to be performed at least 3 sets of 10 times each. After finishing the required amount of repetition, finish up the exercise by placing the feet on your mat. Now gently sit up straight and take a deep breath to relax yourselves. Perform some stretching to refresh your body. During the course of the exercise make sure that your back always stays flat against the mat.  


While doing the exercise, air should be slowly exhaled when you raise your legs and hips above the ground and air should be inhaled slowly while returning back to the previous position. It facilitates the rich supply of pure oxygen to the blood vessels. Remember to inhale the air when the stomach is in expanded state and exhale the air when the stomach muscles are squeezed to burn the belly fats during the workout. It also facilitates the removal of impurities present in the body through sweat.  

Precautions and Effects 

Although the exercise can be done comfortably in the indoors, it is recommended to do the exercise in the outdoors to gain a fresh and pure supply of atmospheric oxygen to the blood vessels. Usage of trousers and shoes are preferred during the exercise as they are very weightless and do not inhibit the blood flow, thus helping in free physical movement. Reduction of belly can be seen if this exercise is practiced regularly for a month or two. After the exercise is done, it is advised to take some nutrient rich drinks to energize your body. Avoid taking solid foods before and after doing the exercise.
