Reverse crunches is also an effective exercise that helps to reduce belly fat, which you can comfortably do at home. This workout is commonly performed by women to lose lower belly fat. This is also similar to twist crunches. Tilt the legs behind instantaneously with the shoulders.

Side Crunches
Side crunches is similar to twist crunches and is also effective at reducing belly fat at home. The only difference is that for side crunches, you have to slant your legs to same side with your shoulders concurrently. The side crunch concentrates more on the muscles on your sides.

You can perform 2 to 3 sets of side crunches (10 times per set) daily.

The rolling plank workout is also effective at reducing belly fat. It concentrates on building your body muscles around the abdomen, hip and lower back.

Strength training is another way to reduce belly fat at home. Strength training helps to develop muscle mass, avoids loss of muscle loss and aids fat loss. You can engage in squats to build your muscle. Also, deadlift also works well at building strength.

Cut down on alcohol consumption
Taking a glass or two of alcohol on occasional basis is okay. However, it is not okay to drink beer and other forms of alcohol on daily basis. Reducing alcohol intake to even 3 -4 days daily is still not okay if you wish to reduce belly fat. Male alcoholics tends to take up a pear shape, consisting of round belly fat and boobs, particularly as the advance in age. Apart from deforming your physique and ruining your workout routine, excess alcohol intake also affects your liver. It causes your liver to work extra hard just to clear out the toxins you willingly consumed.
