Be stronger than your excuses.

Mind in shape will get your body in shape for sure. Go for it. Do not let your mind give those damn excuses and follow your gut feeling.

“X” Squats

Stand upright with your feet slightly more than shoulder-width apart. Squat down bringing your hands down to your right feet and then reaching up to the right side. Squat again and touch the left foot, reach up to the left side and get down to opposite side. Keep altering back and forth. Strech high and take a deep squat. Make all the muscles contracted.

This is a great warm-up workout. It also works on your abs and thigh. Tones your hands. Keep your knees firm and don’t allow them to go past your toes. Use your glutes muscles while squatting down not the knees. Keep the core contracted the entire time.

Start with 45 seconds.  Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. Remember to keep those abs tight and torso straight. Keep it 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

Your body can stand almost anything. It is your mind that you have to convince. So is this enough for the mind to get convinced?

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.
