Muffin Top Exercises

Exercises To Burn Stomach Fat

If you were to ever see me workout in the gym, you would realize I HATE (that’s a capital H.A.T.E!) boring exercises, especially boring muffin top exercises. I am the person hanging off the chin up bar, the person doing the out of the ordinary workouts. So if I hate doing boring workouts why would I expect my clients and other people to do them! I wouldn’t!

I’ll show you how to lose belly fat – without performing a single sit up or abdominal crunch – two exercises we SHOULD NOT be doing.

Getting rid of your muffin tops isn’t just a case of doing abdominal exercises. Doing these type of specific exercises help, but burning calories through whole body workouts will shed those pounds in no time. So the muffin top exercises I will be giving you below, are not your run of the mill stomach exercises, but they will be ticking all the right boxes for an effective muffin top workout

Okay…..These exercises maybe out of the ordinary….but I won’t be getting you to do anything like the featured pic for this post…I promise ;)

Muffin Top Exercises – 3 Out of The Ordinary Exercises

The three we will be going through today are as follows;

  1. Renegade Dumbbell Rows
  2. Front Squats with Barbell
  3. Mountain Climbers on Floor

You will be performing around 3-4 sets of 8 reps.

Renegade dumbbell rows

1. Start in a push up position (hands on 2 dumbbells)

2. Row one of the dumbbells up while using your core and other for stability.

3. Now row using the other arm, this time the arm that you just used to row will be used for stability.

4. Repeat until you have finished reps!


Front squats

  1. 1. Stabilize barbell on shoulders by crossing your arms
  2. 2. Keep your elbows out in front of your body
  3. 3. Slowly bend your knees down and then slowly come back up again

Front squats will take a bit of time to perfect, but they are really good exercises!

Mountain climbers

Mountain climbers are great for burning calories…just what we need!

  1. Start in a push up position
  2. Move your feet in and out, so knees are under your chest
  3. Keep repeating and a reasonable pace, this one will work the whole body guaranteed!

Muffin Top Exercises – The Workout

Okay so I’ve given you three different out of the ordinary exercises, that when performed properly will start burning fat from your your stomach. BUT – There’s no point in me saying, ‘here you go try these!’ - So how are these exercises going to be slotted into a workout routine?

Firstly you must understand that there is not just one way to burn fat. In-fact there are hundred of ways to burn fat and lose weight. You could take up a sport, you could reduce your calorie intake, you can do the old boring ‘zombie-workouts‘ as I like to call ‘em (you know those workouts that consist of 3 sets of 12….3 sets of 12…..3 sets of 12…..3 sets of 12…..) Sure it works, but their shockingly boring, or you could choose another way to burn fat. There literally are an enormous amount of ways to workout and burn fat.

Circuit Training

You could however perform these exercises in a circuit format. For those of you that are not familiar with circuit training here’s a quick low down: Circuit workouts are workouts that consist of a set number of exercises that will be performed one after another until all the exercises are done. The circuit is the repeated (as many times as you want) The amount of reps you do is entirely up to you, but I personally like to aim for a set number of reps before I move onto the next exercise. Some people however like to give themselves a set time to work to. So for example they won’t be counting the number of reps their doing, but rather performing the reps for a set time (usually 30-60 seconds per exercise).

So here’s what we’re going to do……

I am going to break this down into a beginner workout and a more advanced workout.

Muffin Top Exercises – The Beginner Workout

The beginner workout will consist of 4 exercises, the 3 exercises you already know about (above) and one other. You will perform each of these 4 exercises for 30 seconds. So that’s;

30 seconds for Renegade Dumbbell Rows

30 seconds for Front Squats with Barbell

30 second for Cross Crawl (My added exercise – NOTE: You can do it a little faster than the chap in video)

30 seconds for Mountain Climbers on Floor

Once you finish the last exercises, take a 2 minute break. I would say try and aim for completing this circuit 3 times.


The “little Bit More Advanced” Workout

If you would like to notch the workout up a little, then increase the amount of time you’re doing the exercises for OR add in more exercises. So if I was to add in more exercises it may look like this:


30 seconds for Renegade Dumbbell Rows

30 second for Cross Crawl (My added exercise - NOTE: You can do it a little faster than the chap in video)

30 seconds for Front Squats with Barbell

30 seconds Side Plank

30 seconds for Mountain Climbers on Floor

30 seconds press-ups


You get the point. The reason I like circuit training so much, is that it’s super effective in getting rid of any unwanted stomach fat. Even after your first workout you’ll start to feel your stomach burning – in a good way!

But of course, when you’re exercising you have to provide your body with fuel, and our bodies source of fuel is – FOOD!

So make sure you’re eating a healthy balanced diet.
