Here are 5 moves that melt belly fat:

1. Thread the Needle 

NOMI ELLENSON

How to do it:  Get your body into plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrists and your body in a straight line between the top of your head and your heels. Keep your hips aligned and extend your right knee to your right elbow. Next, extend the right leg across your body and sweep it under your left leg. Bring the right knee back to the right elbow, and this will count as one rep.

2. Forearm Plank Swimmers 

NOMI ELLENSON

How to do it: Perform a forearm plank with your shoulders stacked over your elbows and palms pressed lightly against the ground. Put your right arm out straight in front of you, open it to the side, and get back into the starting position. Repeat on the opposite side, and alternate sides as much as you can.

3. Leg Crossovers to Melt Belly Fat

How to do it: Lie with your back facing the mat with your palms pressed against the ground under your hips for support and keep your legs extended. Make sure to keep your lower back pressed against the ground, and then lift both legs about a foot off the ground. Keep your legs as straight as you can, and cross the right ankle over the left one. Then reverse, crossing the left ankle over the right one.
