9. Half Turkish Get Up
If you're looking for a core exercise that gets your whole body involved, the Half Turkish Get Up might just be your speed. Working everything—including your shoulders, hips, back, core, arms, and so many other muscles—this fully body exercise will help burn belly fat long after your work is complete.
Here's how it's done:
Lying face up, bend your right leg while keeping your left leg flat on the floor. Holding a dumbbell or kettlebell, raise your right arm straight overhead. Roll onto your left side and prop yourself up onto your elbow or hand, keeping your right arm overhead and your eyes on the weight. Pause, and then reverse the movement to return to the starting position. Perform all your reps on one side and then switch to the next.
