The lazy Girl Work out
We don’t always have time to get to the gym or go for that run but by simply taking some time out while you watch series in your lounge instead of sitting on the couch you could get into shape in no time.
You can start of by completing this sequence once three times a week and work your way up to completing 3 in a row 3 times a week.
Squats x 20: Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip distance apart. Bend your knees until thighs are parallel to the floor, do not to extend your knees past your toes at the risk of injuring your knees. Slowly go back to standing position, activating your bum muscles on the way back up.
Wide Squats x 20: Stand with your legs wider than hip distance apart and your toes turned out, ballet style. Push your hips back and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor for a deep squat, then push back up to starting position.
Single-Leg Deadlift x 20 per side: Grab a pair of dumbbells and stand on your left foot. Lift your right foot behind you and bend your knee so your right lower leg is parallel to the floor. Bend forward at your hips, and slowly lower your body as far as you can. Pause, then push your body back to the starting position. As you come up, use your glutes to push your hips forward instead of lifting from your back. Keep core engaged and chest up during the entire movement.
Side Plank x 20 on each side: Lie on your left side with your knees straight. Prop your upper body up on your left elbow and forearm. Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders. Hold this position for 30 seconds. Turn around so that you’re lying on your right side and repeat.
Pushup x 20: Get down on all fours and place your hands on the floor so that they’re slightly wider than and in line with your shoulders, feet close together. Lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor and then push yourself back to the starting position. Make sure to keep your hips lifted and your core braced the entire time.
To finish off you need something to cool you down.
There are so many physical and mental benefits to yoga. Inversion postures are great for helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Do this at the end of your exercise to cool down and relax.
How to do it:Lie down on your back and lift your legs and hips off the ground, bringing your legs up over your head until your toes touch the floor behind you. Place your hands behind your back and extend legs straight in the air, creating a straight line from shoulders to ankles.
Keep your neck relaxed as your hold the shoulder stand. Try to hold it for about 3 minutes and slowly roll down, one vertebra at a time.
