When embarking on a weight loss journey, belly fat can be particularly stubborn to get rid of, but one woman's workout tip may be able to help.

While we unfortunately can't choose where exactly on the body we want to lose fat from, this workout specifically targets the abdominal muscles to help work suck in our core, making for a trimmer waist. Shared on social media, those who want to try the exercise, which can be done by those who haven't worked out in years, just need 10 minutes every morning to see results.

The health hack comes courtesy of one menopause coach named Siobhan, who shares health and fitness advice for women going through the change. In a TikTok demonstration published by @menopausewithsiobhan, she performs the standing movement that is also low impact.

Siobhan demonstrated the easy workout where she alternated tucking her knees into her core while standing, reports Manchester Evening News.

She wrote: “Ladies of a certain age. Flatten that belly with this fast routine you can do at home. All you need is 10 minutes every morning. This beginner workout is great even if you haven’t exercised in years!”

Her followers said the routine was easy to do. One said: “This is perfect for my busy mornings and a great way to ease into exercise

Another added: “I’m impressed Keep going :))) honestly I can’t believe how much u have improved ! No matter what ur beautiful just keep going Xx.”

Experts also encourage women looking to lose belly fat to consume nutrient-dense foods that support hormonal balance, such as leafy greens, lean proteins, and whole grains for a holistic approach to weight loss.

As well as physical activity, consistently following a healthy diet is a huge must for those who want to see long-lasting slimming results. Health expert Michael Mosley previously explained why people who want to shed pounds should be eating plenty of protein, which can take the form of lean meats, cheese, eggs, beans and lentils.
