We all are so obsessed with a flat tummy these days, thanks to ladies like Deepika Padukone and I can’t remember any other women with a perfect abdomen. Summers are possibly the best season to work out, since you sweat a lot even if you work out minimally.In order to be effective, a no-equipment workout program should include flat-stomach exercises. Even if you regularly do abs exercises, you won’t be able to see your abs if they’re hidden under a layer of fat. Your personalized workout program will enable you to tone your stomach and lose weight.
* Bicycle Crunch
This exercise is directly targeted at your abs. Lie flat on your back and bend your knees. Stretch your one leg hip width at a distance. Put your hands behind your head and lift your neck, head and shoulders simultaneously. Raise your feet about 1 to 2 feet above the floor. Hold the position. Now bend your knee back and lower the upper body. Do the same on the right side. About 20 such crunches a day shall help you get rid of the flab.
* Toe Drop
This one is also targeted to your abs. All you need to do is lie down straight on your back with arms at your sides and palms flat down. Now bend your knees at 90 degrees and the claves must remain parallel to the floor. Now try to engage the abs and lower the toes of the left foot down so that they touch the floor. Now lift the foot up again and do the same for the right side. Repeat for 25 times alternatively for each leg.
* Side Extension
This exercise is targeted at your shoulders, obliques and core. Stand with feet apart, and knees bent. Hold a 1 litre bottle with both your hands and the hands must be over your head with shoulders down. Now lean the upper body forward and to the right slightly. Hold in your breath for 5 seconds and stand up straight. Now repeat this for 10 times alternating each side.
* Standing Twist
This exercise is targeted to tone down your arms, shoulders and obliques. Stand with feet apart and knees bent. Hold a bottle of 1 liter water right in front of you. Now lift the left leg and balance on the right one. Engage your abs and twist to the left, the feet shouldn’t move. Repeat this for atleast 15 times switching sides. Each side must have a twist for 15 times.
This exercise targets the Arms, the core, and the legs of your body. Lie flat on the floor with legs lifted above your hips. Flex the feet. Now extend your arms to your shoulders and the palms must remain in. Engage your abs, right arm and the left leg to the floor without the back arching or shoulders shrugging. Get back straight to the position and repeat it for 10 times switching sides.
These exercises are sure to work if you do them religiously. Of course it doesn’t mean you can hog on your favorite junk.
