FACT CHECKED BY Alexa Mellardo

If you're ready to start a fitness journey, why not take the route that gets you there twice as fast? Get excited, because we have a productive workout for you that will double your belly fat loss. You heard that right—this routine is no joke, so put on your sneakers, read on, and get ready to burn some serious belly fat.

Let's get real: Belly fat is a stubborn, uninvited visitor. The reason why this excess fat is so difficult to lose is that your stomach has a greater number of alpha receptors. Weight loss typically shows sooner in your face, chest, and arms before your belly reflects your hard work, according to CoolSculpting CT.

When training to melt belly fat, it's essential to make strength training your primary concentration. By doing so, you'll burn more calories, build and maintain muscle, and elevate your metabolism throughout each day. If you like the sound of "double your belly fat loss," then strength training is a must-do, so let's get to it.

The best way to bump up your calorie burn is by choosing exercises that target the biggest areas of your body. To make the best use of your workout time, each of the exercises you perform should be challenging and force you to work hard the entire time. At the end of your training sessions, you can wrap up with some steady-state or interval cardio. Here's an aggressive workout you can do to help you to kick up your fat loss journey in the best of ways. Perform 3 sets of the following exercises, and get ready to double your belly fat loss.

Start this squat exercise by having a barbell inside the landmine attachment. If you don't have one, anchor the end of the barbell against a wall for the same effect. Pick up the barbell, and grip the end of it with both of your hands. Take a tiny step back, and keep your chest tall and core tight. Perform a squat by pushing your hips back and sitting down until your hips are parallel to the floor. Drive through your heels and hips, flexing your quad and glute to finish the motion. Perform 3 sets of 10 reps.

Now, get into a Split Squat position with a barbell between your legs. Keep your chest tall and core tight as you squat, reach down, and grab the barbell with both hands. Stand up tall by driving through with your front heel, flexing your quad and glute to finish. Come all the way back down and then all the way back up with each rep. Finish 3 sets of 10 reps on one side before switching over to the other.

Incline Rear Rows

For Incline Rear Rows, position a workout bench at an incline (at least 30 to 45 degrees). Then, grab two dumbbells, and position your chest on the pad. You can have your knees on the seat of the bench or your feet on the ground—whatever you're most comfortable with. Straighten your arms, and assume a pronated grip. Keep your chest tall, and bring the weight back toward you while flaring your elbows out. Flex your upper back at the end of the movement, then lower the weight all the way down until you get a good stretch at the bottom before performing another rep. Perform a total of 3 sets, 8 to 10 reps.
