There are numerous reasons why people are trying hard but are not losing belly fat - from drinking diet soda and following a low-fat diet to doing only crunches and not sleeping enough.

The key to scoring high-definition abs is feeling tension as you get the midsection working, Shane McLean, certified personal trainer at Balance Guy Training, says. Also, "abs are made in the kitchen." It's really more about the quality than the quantity of the food you consume, he adds.

The more muscles you target with one exercise the harder they are working, which means you are more likely to burn fat, McLean says. Harder moves that isolate certain muscles are beneficial as well. They have their place in a workout routine but later as the body gets more trained.

Certain abs exercises that anybody can do are often part of a warmup session. The Dead Bug, lowering the legs, Suitcase Walks, and some Pilates moves will get the abs burning a lot of calories.

Other workouts are better as part of circuits and supersets - similar to circuits but you're focusing on only one muscle group. They are best done at the end of your exercise routine.
