Time to Tone: At Home Exercises
I don't know about you,but now that summer's full in gear I don't have time to go to the gym. During school,I went to gym everyday and I also ran track,which was everyday from the end of February to the middle of May. Today's post will tell you moves you can do from your house .
1.This first move helps with your shoulders,upper legs,triceps,hips,and love handles.
A.Prop your side up on the forearm,elbow under shoulder,palm spread,and legs stacked.
B.Raise hip off floor by pushing through the forearm. Lower your back but don't rest,and push your hip back up towards ceiling. Do 20 of these on each side.
2.This move works your lower and upper abs.
A.Lay on your back,lift your knees to an angle of 90 degrees and put your hands behind your head.
B.While rotating your hips,push your belly button into your spine,lift shoulders off floor and bring knees towards the chest. While your torso lowers to the floor your legs will extend outward. Your shins should be parallel to the floor and extend your legs out just when the back arches. Do 20 of these.
3.This last move targets the hips.
A.Put your feet together and bend into a slight squat. To help your arms,keep them in a boxing position.
B.Press one leg back diagonally but keep the support leg in a small squat. Bring it back to the starting position and do 30 of these on each side.
After you tone with this workout,it's best to get your heart pumping with around 20 minutes of cardio. Hope this helps! :)
