  • Prop up your body by making 90 degree between your biceps and forearm
  • Curl in your tail bone to straighten your back and neck
  • Hold for up to your capacity

2. Squats

Squats are also an excellent way to increase your muscle strength and flexibility, and are a good stretch for your back and legs.

How to do it?

  1. First Stand up, setting your feet slightly apart and your arms at your sides. Warm yourself up a bit which is much needed by doing light stretches, or jumping jacks and then bend down into a sitting position, making sure you stretch those leg muscles specifically hamstrings and then rise back into the standing position.
  2. Make sure that this is something you can be with ease and that you are not in pain. Don’t do this if already have knee pain.

3. Burpee

A fun exercise we love to do as they are simple & super-effective but of course will leave your heart beat faster and feeling the burn in your abs.

How to do it?

  1. Start by standing up with your feet shoulder-width apart with your arms hanging on the sides.  Propel your arms forward and begin to squat towards the ground, and swiftly change into a push up position.
  2. Then pull your legs back up towards your chest, and then jump up and fall back in the initial position.
  3. You can do these for about 2 sets or about 10 reps.

4. Pushups

Of course this is the most popular exercise that we’ve all been exposed to, and it does have its benefits.

  2. It may sound easy to go, but you will probably catch your breath. Try to do at least three reps of these, for a good workout.
  3. And if it’s difficult to do on the ground, you can begin with downing pushups by standing up and lifting your weight against a wall.

5. Lunges

Lunges will really help you get that stubborn belly and leg fat loose by challenging your body-balance. It’s a little difficult to do in the beginning but once you flex those muscles and catch up, it will work wonders for you.

  3. Do this at least ten times in two sets, and you’ll be feeling the extra fat burn.

6. Situps

are effective way of getting the blood flowing through your body and basic exercise which targets your abdominal muscles plus activates those unused muscles. They are also good to target that belly fat that won’t melt easily, but again take it easy and don’t do them to the point of pain.

  4. Repeat it 10 to 12 reps before moving your weight to your left hand and repeating the same steps on the left leg.
