    Walk 2 minutes
    Run at 8.5 1 minute

    So question can I run this routine everyday I am trying to lose the stomach fat and the loose skin.

    Doing ab focused exercises isn't going to speed up the fat loss around your belly. You can not do anything to affect where the fat you're losing comes from. You'd be better off, doing full body workouts at a fairly quick pace to work a lot of muscle and burn a lot of calories. The loose skin might just be there for a while. There are several different factors involved, but it's hard to have any real idea until you get rid of most of the extra fat. Just keep sticking with it and be patient.

    I agree with John. You cant spot reduce any body part. But if you are going to do abs try adding weight to it like cable crunches. Also squats and deadlifts work wonders!

    Thats all hip flexor and spinal flexion work. good way to create an imbalance and induce lower back issues.

    Train your core. Don't neglect your lower back muscles. Swap those for bridges and dynamic core stability.
