Getting rid of fat may turn into a nightmare if you don’t have all the patience or don’t know how to do it. Weight management is one of the greatest challenges you will encounter in life. The good news is the fact that you can do that by exercising and healthy diet.
Visceral fat in the abdomen increases your risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes and other health problems. Living a stressful life is sometimes impossible, and too many deal with insomnia. Let’s not forget your mood swings. What do these have in common? Exercise.
Physical activity can help you feel and look better.
We suggest that you do the following exercises every day to experience great results.
Heavy side bend
Stand and keep your hands up. Take a dumbbell in your hand and bend to one side. Hold in this position for a few seconds and switch sides. Do 10 reps.
Stand still and bring your feet together. Bend forward and touch the feet with your hands. Hold in this position for a minute. Do 10 reps.
Bring your body in a push-up position, and jump on your legs interchangeably while bringing your knees to the chest area.
Lie on your back and extend your arms behind your head. Bring your feet together, and keep your feet turned upward.
Elevate your leg and lift your upper body off the floor. Do the same with your legs. You should touch your toes with your hands. Hold in this position for a few seconds, and bring your body to the initial position.
Lie on your back and keep your hands behind the head. Elevate your legs to a 90 degrees angle, and do a motion that will look as if you are riding a bike. You have to rotate the entire body.
Plank knee to elbow
Bring your body in a planking position with your your legs extended and your face towards the floor. Your core should be tight. Bring your knee to the elbow of the opposite arm, and then go back to the initial position. Do 10 reps with each leg.
Planks may seem tough for you, but there’s nothing too challenging about them. Lie on your stomach and support your total body weight on your elbows and toes. Keep your body in a straight line and hold it in this position as long as you can.
