Tighten Up Your Body with 2 Minutes of Exercise Shown…
Not all exercise routines have to be lengthy and require special equipment. In fact, some of the most effective exercises are the simplest ones that you can do right at home.
Fitness expert Holly Rillinger put together the following exercises that anyone can do to get back in shape, and they only require a couple of minutes a day.
Stand with your feet put wider than your shoulders, turn your toes 45 degrees outwards and bend your knees so that your hips are parallel to the floor. Make fists with your hands and hold them just below your chin while keeping them close to your body. Keep your weight on your heels so that you can better use the muscles of your backside. Keep this position while you punch with your right hand over your body towards left, moving your torso and head at the same time. Repeat this movement in the opposite side. Continue punching in each direction for about 30 seconds without taking breaks, moving as fastest as you can.
Lay down on your stomach and then lift your body so that your hands below your shoulders. Keep your hands fully straight and keep your balance with your toes. Jump to the front with your right leg so that comes down beside your right hand. Pause for one second and then while jumping put your right feet back. Make a small pause and then repeat the same movement with your left leg. Continue jumping for about 30 seconds as fast as you can.
3. Straight Hops
Lay down on your stomach and push yourself up with your elbows and toes, holding your upper body up with your arms. Jump with both of your legs a foot to the left and then to the right. Continue jumping for about 30 seconds moving as fast as you can. Focus on keeping your backside lower while jumping.
4. Winner Jumps
Stand so that your feet are little wider than the width of your shoulders, and your toes towards the front. Bend your knees until your hips are parallel to the floor and then straighten your arms behind you at 45 degrees. Shift your weight to your heels and try to jump forward as far as you can while you pull out your arms to the front and then lift them above your head in a V shape. Then come back to the beginning position and jump again. Repeat the jumps around 30 seconds as fast as possible.
