Well, sure as shooting all of us do not have enough time to take out of our busy schedules to attend such engaging classes requiring determination. Therefore, most of us try and find short-cuts around the problem. Guess what, we could not help you any more but list down 5 simple exercises guaranteed to help you burn fat, get your cholesterol levels in place and keep you fit. A thirty to forty minute workout session on a daily basis can surely mean a lot to counter the laziness you may feel on an average day without working out. Here is what we came up with:
1. Treadmill walk
A walk on a treadmill, or hence a walk in the park daily helps to keep the heart working properly. Walking comes with legions of benefits associated with it as a direct result. A trimmed waistline, lower cholesterol levels, lesser blood pressure problems and delayed heart related issues are some to name among the rest. A daily walk is something about everyone can do, and it surely has never disappointed anyone.
Stretching may be considered as a warm up before the actual work out, but it is of great value to the body. Firstly, it enables the human body to be more flexible, reducing the chances of possible strains and sprains one may face quite often. Stretching your arms and legs also helps the joints to straighten out, while the muscles reach the vertex of their contract-expand phenomenon, thus releasing them of any tension and relaxing your tendons and bones as a result.
This is a simple exercise for the hips and the thighs, in particular. Sit to Stand involves you repeatedly sitting down on a chair, or on the floor, and then promptly standing up till your legs feel some pain. They say “no pain, no gain”, and the proverb perfectly fits here. The more the sit-stand functioning performed, the more the pain felt therefore burning lots of fats and calories stored inside the human body.
4. Treadmill jog
Now that we have finally started sweating, taking the short workout session to the next level would certainly not hurt. Do not think of it as slowed running, but imagine it as if you are walking apace. Remember, positive thinking really does matter to develop one’s attitude. So get up, and jog some legs!
One of the most common types of exercises to build abdominal muscles and keep your own self far away from that disgraceful tummy hanging out which wobbles with every convulsive movement, is crunching. The simple exercise, which involves touching the head to the knees while lying down, is as industrious as any indoor exercise can be! Don’t worry about not being able to reach the knees the first few times you crunch – your abdomen needs to develop the flexibility to allow your chest and head reach each of the knees while you are lying. Crunching attacks the extra fat on the abdomen, and therefore helps deal with the unwanted storage of sugar particles and other unwanted fluids that food digestion and overeating leave.
These 5 exercises may not seem significant, but this is something I myself have been doing for the past 6 months. Indeed, they have provided me with results many gyms and other yoga classes may not be able to deliver in such short time. I have lost 42 pounds courtesy of this small workout plan I made myself. We hope it helps you stay slim, smart, active and healthy. Remember, excuses are useless, results are priceless.
