If you want to get rid of belly fat, a great way to accelerate the process is by working out on a stability ball. A stability ball, also known as Swiss ball is a great tool for making basic exercises like crunches and pushups even more challenging. The exhilarating ball workout tones ab, oblique and lower back muscles by making them work harder to keep you balanced on the ball. It targets not only the core but also the fat covering the muscles in the area.

A bicep curl, when done on an exercise ball, will challenge more muscles at once and doing pushups on a stability ball will burn the fat in your arms while toning your core. Also, you can build leaner thighs and glutes by performing squatson a ball and burn belly fat at the same time.

To lose weight effectively, perform stability ball exercises at least thrice a week for 15-20 minutes. Also, make sure you consult an expert before you start working out on an exercise ball.
