Top 5 At-home Exercises

It’s a busy life. We usually don’t have the time to spend a few hours in the gym and neither do we feel like spending our money in buying costly gym equipments. Most of us are very much aware of those inches of flab piling up on our body and yet we look on helplessly. However, light exercises are a good way to stay fit. Making it a regular habit can definitely keep your weight under control. Also, doing a little bit of stretching in the morning will keep you feeling fresh for the day and it also makes you less prone to injuries. Listed here are top 5 at-home exercises.

1. Exercise for the belly

If push-ups are hard for you to do, then this particular exercise is another way to cut down the belly fat and also strengthen your gut.
How should you go about it:
Step 1 – Lie down with your back on the floor, spreading both your arms outward.
Step 2 – Raise your knees and bend them. Keep in mind to put your feet flatly on the floor the entire time.
Step 3 – Now slowly lift your hips such that your knees are in the same line with the shoulders. Hold that position for 5 seconds and and then lower back to your original stance. Repeat the same for a few more times.

2. Exercise for the arms

Loose, flabby arms are a problem for most women. You may be young but those giggly arms can put on a few years on you. Flabby arms are highly unattractive and they just need to go. This simple exercise will work on your triceps and make them tighter.
How should you go about it:
Step 1 – Take a sturdy chair of medium height, or you can even use the stairs or a bench.
Step 2 – Now spread your arms a little and put your hands on the edge of the chair. Once you are in the sitting position, simply drop your butt out of the chair; however keep your hands intact on the edge of the chair.
Step 3 – Now that you’re in the above position, your knees will naturally be bent. Extend your feet a little to the front so that now your knees are only slightly bent.
Step 4 – Using the strength of your arms and hand slowly lower your body and bring it up again. Do this for 10 times at one go, in 2-3 sets.

3. Exercise for the thighs and calves

Shapely legs and thighs are every woman’s dream. Squats are the most simple, common and effective exercise for sculpting your hamstrings and calf muscles.
How should you go about it:
Step 1 – Spread your legs apart so that they are parallel to your shoulders. Keep your stomach tight and your back straight.
Step 2- Now slowly, bending your knees, lower your torso until you are in an almost sitting position.
Step 3 – Keep in mind to not let your knees go beyond the ankles. Repeat this for 10 times and then slowly increase the count.
