Getting in Shape


You know what they say, picking the right outfit is half the battle won. This is true, especially when it comes to following a workout routine for getting in shape.  Get the perfect workout look for these four effective workouts—there’s sure to be some motivation for all those who want perfectly toned bodies, but just haven’t been able to drag themselves out of their comfort zone. Indulge in some ecommerce on, pull out your workout mat and get down to it.

1- Abdominal Hold

Battle belly fat at home using the only piece of fitness equipment you need—your body. Sit tall on the corner of a chair and place your hands on the edge with your fingers pointing towards your knees. Tighten your abs and raise your feet two to four inches above the ground. Lift your butt off the chair and hold this position for as long as you can – aim for five to ten seconds. Lower yourself down and repeat. Continue this exercise for at least a minute.

2- Arm Circle

Grab a pair of 3-pound dumbbells. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and extend your arms straight out, making a 90-degree angle with the sides of your body.

Move your arms backward in circular motion, repeat this 20 times and then switch the direction. This workout routine will target your shoulders, back, triceps and biceps, helping you getting in shape quickly.

3- Tricep Dips

Getting rid of the extra flab on your triceps is the best way to feel comfortable in bearing your arms. Place your hands shoulder-width apart on a stable bench or chair, with your fingers towards your knees and slide off the front of the bench with your legs extended.

Keeping your back close to the bench, slowly bend your elbows to lower your body towards the floor until your elbows are at about a 90-degree angle, push your body back up and return to starting position.

Keep your shoulders down as you lower and raise your body.

4- Lunges

Lunges work best for toning all the major muscles of the hips, glutes and thighs. It’s important to do lunges properly so you don’t put unwanted strain on your joints.

Stand up straight, with your legs hip-width apart. Place your hands on your hips. Relax your shoulders down as far as they will go.

Place your right foot approximately two to three feet forward [depending on your height] and lift the heel of your left foot slightly, with the toe still in contact with the ground. Back should be kept straight.

Bend both of your knees simultaneously. Make both of your knees stop at a 90 degree angle. Make sure your right knee does not go over your toe line. Stay in the position for about five seconds and move.

Repeat the exercise with the left leg. Repeat 10 times on each side or do two to three sets of 10.
