The 29 Home-Exercises You Can Do to Lose Stomach Fat

You don’t need fancy machines or expensive gym memberships to build the body of your dreams. In fact, you can burn belly fat and sculpt your muscles at home in your own home gym with dozens of bodyweight exercises.

If you have dumbells, you can do even more exercises, and increase the challenge of your bodyweight exercises. If you don’t want to go to a workout center anymore, then don’t worry, you can burn fat at home.

Plus, by exercising at home, you’ll get your workouts done in the same amount of time as it would take to drive to the gym and back. Talk about a time saver!

Here are 27 exercises you can do at home to lose fat and build muscle, helping you burn belly fat and get 6-pack abs.

By putting these exercises together into supersets, you can get a total body resistance training workout done in only 20 minutes. Follow that up with 15-20 minutes of interval training, and you’ll have the best belly fat burning workout you can do in only 45 minutes.

Boring aerobic exercise is not necessary for fat loss. Let’s take a look at these fat burning, minimal equipment exercises you can do in a small space in your own home.

Here are the lower body exercises you can do to boost your metabolism and build a better butt and legs.

1. Squats

2. Stability Ball Leg Curls (don’t worry, these stability balls are super cheap, and you can get them for only $20 at almost any department store)

3. Lying hip extensions

4. Lying single leg hip extensions

5. Split Squats (aka. the stationary lunge)

6. Split Squats with your back foot elevated 6 inches

7. Reverse Lunges

8. Forward Lunges

9. Stepups

10. 1-Leg Squats

Many of those calorie-burning exercises can be done with dumbells as well, if you need to increase the challenge. If you want to build muscle, you’ll need to use dumbells as well.

There are many more lower body exercises you can do without machines. And its the same story with upper body exercises as well.

If you want to sculpt your triceps and chest, there are dozens of press-ups (aka pushups) that you can do at home.

1. Regular pushups

2. Close-grip pushups

3. Pushups with your feet elevated

4. Pushups with one hand elevated

5. My favorite, most difficult pushup, “Spiderman Pushups”

6. And beginners can start with either Incline Pushups or Kneeling Pushups.

If you have a bench and a set of dumbells, you can do…

1. Dumbell chest presses

2. Dumbell incline presses

3. Dumbell shoulder presses

And there are many variations of those you can do as well.

Training your back is trickier when exercising at home. If you have an adjustable pullup bar, you can do:

1. Inverted Bodyweight Rows (aka. Reverse Pushups)

2. Chinups

3. Pullups (these are overhand grip and harder than chinups)

Of course, I’m leaving out many variations of these fantastic exercises.

If you don’t have a bar, you need to use dumbells, and can do:

1. Dumbell Rows (there are probably a dozen different ways to do dumbell rows)

2. Dumbell Rear-Deltoid Raises

Finally, we’ll finish with ab training exercises you can do at home. Let’s ignore situps and crunches, since they aren’t the best use of your time, and can damage the low back.

I avoid crunching type ab exercises in my programs and use static endurance exercises, like:

1. Planks (and side planks)

2. Mountain Climbers

3. Stability Ball Jackknives

4. Stability Ball Rollouts

5. The Ab Wheel (yes, this infomercial gadget is actually useful!)

So that’s at least 29 fat burning exercises you can do at home. But in fact, simple variations in technique, or adding dumbells, or changing hand position can actually give you 101 exercises you can with this list to help you burn belly fat and sculpt your body.
