Change, the only permanent thing.
A change may be around the corner. But it is of no use if you do not even get up and go to that corner. – A’nami’
Last week, I became a bit cruel. Gave some hard and Tabata workouts. People want me to have some mercy. 😛 So I decided that in this last week I will be more liberal and kind. So here are some easy peasy exercises. Get up and embrace the change which is just around that corner.
Up and Over Steps + Knee
Stand upright. Swing your arms above your head from right to left. Bringing your left leg behind you. Now bring the left knee to the left elbow. Extend the leg back again. Swing the arms across the opposite side. Bringing the right leg behind. Knee to elbow. Extend back. Keep altering the motion.
Repeat for 50 seconds and you can increase as per your strength. Make sure to keep your body and torso straight. Make slow but controlled movements.
This is a full body cardio workout. Keep the abdominal muscle tight the entire time. Make sure to swing those arms slowly, do not yank.
Up and Over Side Lunges
Stand upright. Take a side lunge extending your right leg out. Get down and touch the right toe with left hand. Get back and your hands will go up your head. Now take a lunge on left side and reach down with your right hand. Stand, hands above your head. Keep altering back and forth from side to side.
Start with 50 seconds and increase accordingly. Keep those abs contracted the entire time. It is again a full body workout. 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.
Tip of the day
If you can make it this far, nothing can stop you from one more mile or one more set of reps
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.
