9 Best Exercises for Men To Melt Spare Tire Belly Fat


Planks are a core-strengthening exercise that engages multiple muscle groups, helping to build a stable, defined midsection. Start in a pushup position with elbows under shoulders. 

Russian Twists

Russian twists target the oblique muscles, defining and toning the waist. Sit with knees bent, feet elevated, and hold a weight. 

Bicycle Crunches

Bicycle crunches engage the entire abdominal area and the obliques. Lie on your back, hands behind your head. Alternate touching elbows to opposite knees while extending legs. 

Mountain Climbers

Mountain climbers are a dynamic exercise that elevates heart rate and targets the core. In a pushup plank position, alternately draw knees to chest like running in place.

Leg Raises

Leg raises target the lower abs. Lie on your back, hands under hips. Lift legs straight up and lower without touching the ground. Maintain control, keeping your back flat. 

Reverse Crunches

Reverse crunches work the lower abs. Lie on your back, knees bent, feet off the ground. Lift hips off the ground, bringing knees to chest. Lower with control. 


Burpees are a full-body exercise that raises heart rate and burns calories. From standing, squat, place hands on the ground, kick feet back, do a pushup, return to squat, and jump up. 

Kettlebell Swings

Kettlebell swings are high-intensity, strengthening the core and burning calories. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, hold kettlebell, swing it between legs, and then up to shoulder height.
