I haven’t updated the blog for a while. However, I am planning to do more regular updates from now on and I am so excited about it. Since spring is almost here, I am going to start where I left off last time, fat burning exercises.
Certainly, there are a lot of methods available nowadays which will aid in achieving the ideal figure an individual has. To many, visible fats are unappealing, thus the initiative to radically change one’s lifestyle. In line with this change is the introduction of proper diet and exercise. These two have to work hand in hand to mold your body into your dream figure. Fitness is not just about dieting in order to lose weight. In fact, it is about a holistic way of making your body healthier. If fitness is the goal, you should consider the simple exercises below. These exercises do not necessarily exceed an hour when performed. When these exercises become part of you day-to-day routine, there will be a higher likelihood of you reaching your target weight and shape.
- Rolling Plank Exercise
In this exercise, there is a need to position the body in such a way that only the knees and elbows are resting on top of the ground. While maintaining the alignment of the neck to the spine, you are to look forward. Slowly, you are to lift the knees from its resting position. This will cause the toes to be the sole support of the legs. This is also called the plank position. To perform the rolling plank pose, you are supposed to move to and fro. It might seem easy but this exercise may cause dizziness when the individuals fails to pay attention to his or her breathing.
This is one of the most common exercises used in burning belly fat or body fat in general. Apart from the classic crunches or curling of the body in this exercise, you may opt to do its variations so that more effort is given consequently leading to more fat burnt. Some of its variations include but is not limited to crunches with weights, side crunch with weights, etc. Like in planking, there are some precautions when doing this exercise. To name a few, there is the tendency to hurt your back, painfully jerking one’s head forward, abdominal pain, and others.
- Bicycle Exercise
Do not let the title fool you. There is no need to buy or use a literal bicycle for this exercise. All you need to do is to lie on the floor first. Second, you would have the need to position your hands like the way you position these when doing crunches (behind the head). Third, lift your legs and bend these at the knee portion. As you bring the right knee closer to your chest, the left leg is supposed to be kept further and vice versa.
- Twist Crunches
Similar to number 2 and 3, the hands when performing this exercise are supposed to be positioned at the back of the head for support. The main difference between the classic crunches and the twist crunches is the need to lift the right shoulder towards the direction of the left shoulder while you aim to keep the left side torso resting on the ground. This exercise is often repeated 10 times, 5 for the right side and 5 for the left.
- Lunge Twist
This is not as famous as the others. In this exercise, you would have to stand, keep your knees slightly bending and your legs apart, preferably with the width corresponding to the width of a common hip. You are then to raise your hands aligning it with your shoulders, thus parallel to the ground. Then you lunge forward.
There are other exercises for you to practice and exhaust. It may include the following: Bending Side To Side, Vertical Leg Crunch, Side Crunch, Captain’s Chair, Reverse Crunches and many more. While you may aim for the betterment of your body, there still remains the need to exercise or pay attention to certain precautions before exercising to burn fat.
