Okay, so you’ve probably come across the “get a flat belly quick” scams on the internet and you probably tried one of those and you still have flabby belly – askis shem lol!
According to studies, losing weight is a tough thing but in most cases in involves eating right and working out. You have to burn more calories than you eat. Now, before you go and do some calorie counting, lets talk about the second thing – working out.
Summer is coming and the mosquitoes will be here too but for most students the blood suckers are not a big problem. The problem is the constant reminder from the fit people walking around in their revealing clothes reminding you all the sugary food you consumed during winter and filling you with regrets. So what do you do? You think about joining the gym and then you realise that you have so much work to do. You can’t university anymore lol.
I am here to help. I think everyone can spare 7 minutes in their busy lives. Below are a few exercises you can do for a very short time (About 7 Minutes):
Lie on the floor with your toes and forearms on the ground. Keep your body straight and hold the position as long as you can. This one strengthens your abdomen, back and shoulders. Start slow, go at your own pace. Some people start with 10 seconds and build up as they go.
- Bird Dog
Start with your knees under your butt and your hands under your shoulders then stretch your right leg and left arm at the same time. Now hold for about 5 seconds and then go back and do the same with the other side. Simple… so far. Set your own number. 20 would do.
- Step On To A Chair
This one sounds simple enough, right? Stand in front of a chair. Step up on to the chair and then step down and repeat. This one works your legs and buttock.
Perhaps I should have started with this one. Lay prone on the ground with arms supporting your body. Keep your body straight while raising and lowering your body with your arms. This one works your chest, shoulders, triceps, back and legs.
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your arms stretched forward, then lower your body until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Your knees should be extended in the same direction as your toes. Return to the starting position and do the next rep. This one works your thighs, hips, buttocks, quads, hamstrings and lower body.
That is just five, there are more simple full body workouts you can engage as you become more comfortable. The fact that you are busy should not stop you from leading a healthy lifestyle.
