5 Cost-Free Workouts For A Great Festive Body
With the festive season upon us, this is the right time for us to work on our bodies so that come December we are ready for show offs. Not all of us can afford gyms and sometimes even time is not on our side because of our busy schedules. Find below a list of exercise you can do in the comfort of your home, at your own pace and time.
Squats are an excellent exercise for training the lower body and core muscles, if done regularly they help to define thighs and buttocks.
2. Push Ups
Push ups are one of the basic and most common exercises for the human body. Push ups are not only great for your chest, but do a tremendous job of defining your abs, triceps, shoulders and torso.
Lunge exercises tone your thighs which include the quadriceps (front muscles) and hamstrings (back muscles) and your bottom (butt) which we all want nice and firm!
When discussing six-pack abs and a toned belly, crunches often spring to mind before any other exercise. While it takes more than crunches to get a defined stomach, you’ll need a balanced diet and regular cardiovascular exercise as well. As crunches help strengthen your core, they produce functional benefits in addition to aesthetic perks.
5. Leg Raises
Leg raises are the ultimate way to turn jelly-bellies into a toned masterpiece. Keep your legs as straight as possible, and hold a dumbbell between your feet if you want added resistance. 3. Slowly raise your legs perpendicular to the floor. Hold the contraction at the top for a second, then slowly lower your legs to the start position.
