Nose to Knee Plank #AToZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z


 

Number one, love yourself. Number two, eat healthy. And number three, repeat & make it a habit. – A’nami’

 

 

We are halfway down and now just halfway to go more. Most of you, I guess, have started giving time to your body. I am sure you started enjoying and now exercise has become your habit. Isn’t it?? Repeat, repeat and repeat till it becomes your habit. That’s my formula for workouts.

 

Nose to Knee Plank

Get into a full plank position, getting your weight on your arms and feet. Now pull your right knee towards your nose pushing those hips a little higher. Get back into a plank. Now pull left knee towards your nose. This counts one.

Start with 3 sets of 10 reps. Gradually you can increase the number of set and/or reps as needed. You may also time yourself for 45-60 seconds. Remember to do an equal number of reps with both the legs.

This majorly works on your abs and tones your arms and legs. It also strengthens your shoulders. Keep the motion slow and controlled.

When can you do ?? Best time for any workout is in the morning. You can also do in evening after at least 4 hours of a heavy meal. Never perform any workout on a full stomach.

 

The Body part of the day – N

Neck

Neck connects your head to the rest of the body. The neck has a great deal of functionality but is also subject to a lot of stress. You never pay attention to your neck unless it pains. So take proper care of your neck too. Afterall it is the one which controls the “head” 😛

  • Mind your posture.
  • Sit and walk straight.
  • Sleep in a right position.
  • Eat healthy.
  • Do some neck rolls and exercises
  • Cut down mobile time.

 

 

Tip of the day

The man may be the head of the Family. But the woman is the neck, and she can turn the head whichever way she pleases. So ladies out there be a good neck. Take care of yourself and be ready to turn the “head”.

 

P.S –

These are just single workouts. Warm up and cool down are not included in this. Know that your body has limits and you should respect it. Do only as much as your body allows you. Little pain is absolutely normal as the muscles stretch, but if you feel more pain then you are doing something wrong. Stop doing it and consult a doctor if necessary. I am not a personal trainer, this is meant to be the inspiration for you as a way to break workout boredom.

    • Better late than never. This is a bit difficult to start with. Start with sir warm up. You can do this as well.

    I see a lot of work being done on the shoulders with this one. With my family-pack belly, I think I’m going to struggle with this, but I will try it for sure 🙂

    • And when you start trying and keep on trying, your family-pack belly will start to reduce to single-pack. 😛
