Excuses Don’t Burn Calories… Workouts Do
All of us crave for a slim well-toned body but not many of us get the time to hit the gym regularly.
Our busy lifestyles and uncertain working hours give us very little time to invest in our body and health, but here are few basic exercises you can perform anytime at the comfort of your home that too in just 20 minutes.
Begin with a 3-minute warm-up and then perform each of these exercises for one minute with a 30 seconds break in between each exercise.
Once you complete each exercise take two minutes to drink some water and catch your breath. Then repeat the entire set one more time.
- Pass-through lunge –
This lower body exercise strengthens your legs and glutes while providing a great cardio benefit.
- Globe hops –
This exercise strengthens the lower body and gets your heart rate up. It involves a jumping pattern in all directions, so it also keeps your brain engaged.
- Shoulder tap push-up –
The plank shoulder tap strains and strengthens your core, glutes, arms, wrists and shoulders. It helps in reducing lower back pain, improves posture, flexibility and tightens your midsection.
