Burn Belly Fat with a Simple Treadmill Walking Program

One of the easiest ways to burn belly fat fast is to start walking, that’s right! Once you get up off the couch and start walking you begin the process of battling that mid-section bulge.  Walking is the most basic movement you can do with your body. Nothing is required except lacing up you tennis shoes.  All you have to do is place one foot in front of the other; by the way it may interest you to know that if you were to join a running group to prepare for a 5K, you will be instructed to walk/run until you work your way up in running ability.

Walking is usually the first way to get any person in shape before they start a rigorous exercise routine.   Walking should be part of your basic effort to become more mobile as it will help you shed those unwanted pounds faster than any stationary exercise.

Once you put on those tennis shoes you are on your way to burn belly fat, you simply need to think of any good reason to become a pedestrian and whether you want to burn belly fat, boost energy, lift your mood, or just be a bit more toned in a few important places walking is always a great start.

You'll get a great workout in 20, 30, or 60 minutes with the following walking program I’ve designed.

Treadmills are the perfect belly fat busters

No need to worry about traffic, weather or darkness. Start at a comfortable speed and work your way to a higher speed.  Seeing your speed increase as you become fit is also a huge motivator. Treadmill workouts can be some of the most efficient, challenging, calorie-burning routines around to help eliminate troublesome belly fat.

The key is intervals. With intervals, instead of trudging along at a steady pace, you'll mix up your speed and add floor exercises into your routine. For many walkers and runners, treadmill workouts are the only way they can stick with their fitness walking workouts during the cold winter months, but this routine is good for any time of the year.
