Everyone aspires to be in good health and have a great figure, but in order to achieve this goal, it is extremely important for you to work hard. Now, working hard does not necessarily mean applying for a gym membership and making the gym your second home.
In fact, what if we told you that you could get fit without even leaving your bed? That’s right, folks! Here are 8 great exercises that will help you get rid of that unwanted fat without having to buy any unnecessarily expensive gear or equipment.
1. Bent Leg Raises
This exercise focuses on working your quadriceps, buttocks as well as your abdomen. In order to perform this exercise, you need to bend your knees and place your arms parallel to them. Once you have ensured that your back is absolutely straight, lift your leg until it is almost perpendicular to your other leg. Once you bring your leg back down, you should repeat the exercise for a total of 10 reps before moving to the other leg.
2. Plank With Leg Raises
Planking is a great way of working your core muscles. This exercise helps you work on your calves and buttocks at the same time. In order to perform this exercise, start off by placing your body in a pushup position. Now, raise your leg until it is absolutely horizontal. Try and hold your leg in that position for a couple of seconds before bringing it back down. Repeat this exercise 10 times before moving onto the other leg.
3. Glute Bridges
As the name suggests, this exercise is great to help shape your buttocks as well as get rid of any fat on your thighs. In order to perform this exercise, lie down on your back. Now, slowly raise your buttocks without lifting your torso. Try and raise your buttocks until you can feel your abdomen tighten. Now, hold this position for a couple of seconds before going back down.
If you want to increase the intensity of your workout, you can raise one leg simultaneously. Alternate between each leg as you repeat the exercise to ensure a complete workout.
4. Lateral Side-Lying Leg Raises
This is another exercise that is great to help bring definition to your quadriceps and buttocks. In order to perform this exercise, lie down on your side and ensure that your legs are one on top of the other. Now, raise the leg that is on top as high as you can. Similar to other exercises on this list, make sure you hold your position for a couple of seconds before bringing it back down. Repeat this exercise 10 times before moving onto the other side.
5. Russian Twist
This exercise helps burn belly fat and tightens your core muscles. In order to perform a Russian twist, sit down and slightly bend your knees. Make sure that your back does not touch the floor since this ensures that you are working your core muscles. Once your back and legs are in the air, twist your body to one side. Hold this position for a few seconds before twisting to the other side. Repeat this exercise 10 times.
6. Pushup Hold
A pushup hold is a great exercise to help burn belly fat as well as bring definition to your arms. In order to perform this exercise, you need to perform a regular push up, but once you lower your chest, you must try and remain in that position for as long as you can. In some ways, this is an advanced plank as your hands cover a lower surface area, thus putting more pressure on your core muscles.
7. Bicycle Crunches
Bicycle crunches not only help you get rid of belly fat at a fast rate, they also help you work on your buttocks and thighs at the same time. In order to perform this exercise, you need to first perform a regular crunch. Once you return to your initial position, you must lift one leg and bring your knee in, towards your chest while keeping the other leg absolutely straight. Repeat this exercise 20 times while alternating between each leg.
8. Reverse Crunch
Reverse crunches are recommended as one of the most effective exercises to help you work on your abs. At the same time, they are one of the toughest exercises to perform continuously. To start off, lie down on your back and raise both your legs until they are perpendicular to the rest of your body. Now bend your knees and bring them into your chest. Hold this position for a couple of seconds before raising them back up. Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Sincerely following this workout routine every morning (without even having to leave the comfort of your bed!) and it will ensure that you get into great shape sans costly and time-consuming gym memberships. Best of luck!
