If you want to lose belly fat fast then you need to grab a workout that’s not only designed to target belly fat but burn a lot of calories over the coming days. High Intensity Interval training or HIIT is one of the best workouts that will do this.
The main reason why HIIT workouts are so good for helping you lose weight is down to the intensity of the workout.
They help you to burn heaps of calories in while you are physically working out and then you’ll send your metabolism into overdrive as your body recovers and adapts. Depending on how hard you push during your workouts will determine how long your metabolism is raised.

A raised metabolism can last up to 72 hours after the initial workout. That doesn’t mean you can eat what you like in the following days as that will be counterproductive to your belly fat goals.

To make it easier you can place your hands on a raised step of some sort.
Work hard and smash the workout. Remeber you need to be working out at least 3 days a week to see results.
