5 lazy girl exercises to help you get in shape
When it comes to living a healthy life, it is important to maintain discipline. From your eating habits to your daily workout regime, every attribute requires discipline. But amidst all this, the biggest spoiler is laziness. If you are someone who often falls prey to laziness, here are a few exercises that can revamp your lifestyle and help you live a healthy life.
Keep your feet hip-width apart and take a large step forward with your left foot. Now, slowly bend the left knee to a 90-degree angle and keep your back knee touching the ground. Then push up with your front leg and return to the starting position, then repeat. It is recommended to do 10-20 reps daily.
Cow and Cat
This one is a yoga move that helps ease lower back pain. All you need to do is get down on your hands and knees, and then arch your back into a U shape; then do the reverse, round it to form a hump like a cat. Practice one or two sets of 10 daily.
Often called as an alternative to sit-ups, this fitness exercise is good for the spine and helps in shaping abs. Lie on your stomach with your elbows on the floor in front of you, slowly rise up onto your toes and straighten your body like a plank. Try to hold for 5 to 10 counts initially, and later raise it to 20 counts, then slowly lower yourself back down. Try to practice these one or two sets of 10 daily.
Stand up and place your arms straight out to the side. Then, bend your hands back at the wrists while moving your arms behind you (don't stretch). Hold your position for five counts, then bring your arms back to rest with your torso. The tension felt near shoulders, forearms, and wrists helps relax the stress caused during driving and typing. It is recommended to do one or two sets of 10 daily.
You need to hold a five-pound weight in one hand, let it rest near your thigh, then place the other hand on the seat of a chair in front of you and lean forward. Next, you have to bend your elbow and lift the weight up toward your armpit, then bring it down. It is suggested to do one or two sets of 10 on each side.
