It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
— Mahatma Gandhi
Create your own wealth. Preserve your most precious asset that is your own body. Do not miss a single change. Go for it.
Outside Leg Raises + Pulses
Get down on the floor. Lay on your left side resting your head on the hand. Point your right toes forward and bend the left knee back at 90-degree angle. Keep your leg straight. Now slowly bring the right leg up as high as you possibly can. Then bring down again. Repeat with left leg.
For pulses, you have to do the same movement but in the middle range of motion and make small pulse. You don’t have to go all way up, or all way down, just smooth pulses. Repeat with left leg.
Start with 45 seconds. Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. Or you can also do 2-3 sets of 10 reps.
It is a great leg slimming exercise. It tones your thighs and lifts your glutes. Make sure you do not swing the leg. It should be a controlled motion. Do not bend the upper leg knee.
Lie flat on the floor with your knees bent and hands behind your head. Bring your right hand and try to touch your left calf. Go back to flat position. Repeat with the left hand.
Start with 45 seconds. Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. You may also go for 2 sets of 15 reps.
This is a perfect crunch for your abs and obliques. Remember to keep those abs tight. Keep it slow and controlled. Keep the hips on the floor.
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.
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.
