Ok, so summer’s looming and you want a body to die for without starving yourself of everything you love? Easy. Be inspired by these easy exercises to get fit:
For a toned stomach – although the stomach is known as the hardest place to shed weight, it can be done. If you want a toned stomach, all you need to do is an exercise called the ab crunch. This involves lying on your back with your feet on the floor, positioned as closely to your bottom as possible. Ensuring your knees are touching, place your hands on your chest and slowly bring your shoulders off the floor, but keep your lower back touching the floor. You’ll need to hold the position for a second and then breath out. Relax your stomach muscles and let your shoulders touch the floor again. If you repeat this twelve times, and then do as many sets a day as you can, with one minute breaks in between, you’ll be well on your way to having a stomach to die for.
To be rid of bingo wings – the upper arm muscle, also known as the tricep, is again known as one of the hardest places to lose weight from. This is why bingo wings are so common amongst women, and some men. Ridding yourself of bingo wings doesn’t have to be a strenuous task, where you have to give up a lot of your time. Simply placing weights around your wrists whilst you’re at home completing tasks like the housework, for example, will help you banish the extra fat.
For slender thighs – for many women, having slender thighs is an important goal, as having legs that are in proportion to the rest of the body adds to how feminine a person feels. A simple exercise for slender thighs can be achieved at home, without the need to buy any equipment or to sign up to a gym membership. Place your back against a wall and put your feet a shoulder width apart from each other. Keeping your heels touching the floor at all times, breathe in and lower your body into a squat position whilst sliding down the wall. As you straighten your legs, breath out ensuring that you are keeping your head and chest up. Return to the position you started in and then repeat as often as you can. You’re legs will feel tight the first few times you do this exercise, as you’ll be working muscles you didn’t know you have, but in time these aches will go away and your start to see the results you were hoping for.
