Easy Fitness Hacks To Get A Toned Body
" I don't have time " is a tiny lie that you keep telling yourself when you are searching for reasons for why you haven't been to the gym lately.
So ditch your excuses because it's time to get moving girl. We will show you some simple exercises that you can incorporate in your daily routine to help you get that toned body. Lets's start with:
Leg raises can turn your jelly belly into flat abs. This classic core-buster exercise increases flexibility in your hips and lower back which are problem areas for people who spend plenty of time at a desk. Here's how to do this exercise:
Get on your back and lie down completely straight.Raise your neck and support it with your hands. Raise your legs high and keep them completely straight. Do not bend your knees. Bring your leg's down as low as you can get without touching the bed. Continue doing this for at least 10 reps or till you feel the burn. Make sure you do at least 2 sets.
Turn your morning routine into a fitness one by doing some wall sits while you brush your teeth. This exercise will make your thighs look like that of a fitness model, ripped, strong and defined. To do this exercise :
Back up against a wall. Walk your legs out to a 90 degrees angle. Make sure your knees are completely in line with your hips and don't move from this position for at least one minute or till you finish brushing your teeth.
CRUNCHES AND PLANK.
When you are sprawled on your bed and watching your favourite T.V show or you are reading your favourite book, it's a good time to squeeze in a little exercise.
CRUNCHES -For when you are laying on your back.
Lay on your back, keep your knees bent and keep your neck up. Place your hands behind your neck to support your neck. Crunch up using your abdominal muscles. Breathe out on your way up. Do 2 sets of 10 reps each.
PLANK- For when you are laying on your stomach.
Prop yourself up on your elbows, keep your leg's slightly apart. Keep forearms directly in line with your shoulders. Hold this position for exactly 15 seconds. If you are feeling braver continue to go on for a lot longer till your abdominal muscles beg you to stop.
So quit making excuses, train smart, feel the burn and wake up to a healthier, happier and fitter you and when you feel like giving up, just think of why you started.
