It's tough going having a gut that seems permanent, especially when you're inching towards middle age. While eliminating that gut has a lot to do with dietary changes and consistent exercises, there are some moves you can do that are more effective than others to help alleviate the situation.

Here are five of the best.

BURPEES

High intensity cardio moves are very effective when it comes to aiding weight loss, and toning up your muscles. The burpee especially so, as it is a full-body workout. Start off standing upright, with your feet shoulder-width apart. Push your hips back and get into a squat position. With your hands in front of you, jump back so that you are in plank position. Return back into a tuck, and jump up explosively. The trick is to do it as fast as possible.

SIDE TO SIDE HOPS

Imagine there's a vertical line on the ground in front of you. Hop over the line with alternating feet, moving from side to side as fast as possible. To make the move more intense, hop over the line with both feet. This requires a good amount of cardio endurance whiles engaging your core to maintain your posture and balance.

BICYCLE CRUNCHES

Bicycle crunches are a core workout staple. Start off by lying on the floor with your arms by your sides, and your legs outright. Next, bring your hands to your head, and assume crunch position. Use your core to move, making your left elbow touch the right knee and vice versa. Do it fast for added intensity.

SWISS BALL PLANK

Planks are another highly effective exercise to help you work your core. Get a medicine ball, and assume push up position with your feet on the ball, using your core to maintain stability. Don't arch your back, or curve it. If you don't have a medicine ball, use a chair, or just perform a regular plank if you're a beginner to start.

RUSSIAN TWIST

Begin in a seated position, and have your knees bent. Your heels should touch the floor, and not move. With any weight between both your hands, lower your back so your body forms a V-shape. There should be tension in your core. Begin twisting from side to side, locking your core to maintain balance while engaging your obliques.
