It’s a total mood killer when you are getting ready for a party and the dress you want to don is not fitting you at all! And most of the time, the major cause of concern for this is your belly, especially the lower area. 

The lower belly area is a tough spot to tone. But with the correct workout routine, this problem area can be tamed in no time at all. You heard it, ladies! We have got for you a cardio exercise that will burn up that belly fat and will get you back in shape. 

Say hello to high knees!

High knees is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise known to be the ultimate fat cutter. It works on your entire body and you don’t need any equipment to pull it off. Also, you can do this one anywhere. 

How can you do high knees?
Well, this one is really simple. You just have to stand straight and alternatively bring your knees up to the height of your chest. Keep switching between legs with a hop and that’s it. 

Do a minimum of four sets of 50 high knees for each leg to burn more calories. You can also time yourself using a stopwatch–a one-minute high knee makes for a good beginning.

Few things to remember while doing high knees:

  • The higher you bring your knee, the better the impact will be.
  • You can keep your arms out and hit the knee on the palm to note that you are maintaining the height.
  • Speed matters a lot. Do it as fast as you can.
  • Don’t try doing high knees right after a meal.
  • If you just sipped in water then wait for 5-minutes and then perform high knees.

According to a study published in the journal Obesity Science & Practice, HIIT exercises like burpees and high knees help in burning more calories than usual running or jumping jacks. Plus, it not just helps you target areas where you need to work on but it helps you develop a better core muscle. 

If you have a misconception that this one might ruin your knees then you are highly mistaken because, according to experts, that’s a myth. The study mentioned also ratifies it. 


Keep an idea of your risk of weight-related issues.

Do you know belly fat can also lead to multiple other problems like cardiovascular ailments and stroke? You don’t want that. So ladies, get your act straight and without any further ado start your day with high knees.
