Nothing will work unless you do.

 

 

Nothing will work unless you do. So do it. And do the best. Don’t let go of the gift.

 

Quadruped Leg Lifts

Get on all your fours. Distribute your weight evenly between your arms and knees. Keep the knees shoulder-width apart. Now Slowly lift the right leg and extend it straight. Pull back. Lift the left leg and move it straight out. Keeping the knees straight.

Start with 45 seconds.  Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. Keep it slow and controlled. Keep your knees straight while lifting those legs.

This works on your core and tones your legs as well. Keep your abs tight the entire time.

Quiet Burpees

Stand upright with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lean forward and put your hands on the ground. Take a stance back with your right leg then the left. Bring the right foot back forward then the left one. Stand up. Push your arms over your head. Then again lean forward, put your hands on the ground and take a stance with the left foot first this time, then another foot back. Bring back left leg then right. Stand upright and push your arms overhead. Repeat.

This is a great cardio warm-up workout. It also works on your abs and thigh. Tones your hands.  Keep the core contracted while taking the stance. Keep your shoulders firm.

Start with 45 seconds.  Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. 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

Get that little “umph” and be a winner. This is all for you no one else.

20 Motivational Quotes To Help You Reach Your Fitness Goals

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.

Mt. Top Abs & Mountain Climber #AToZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z


 

Fitness has nothing to do with age.

 

20 Motivational Quotes To Help You Reach Your Fitness Goals

 

Not feeling good ?? You have already done half the challenge. Do not give up now. You will have a break tomorrow. Exercise will boost your mood for sure.

 

Mountain Top Abs

Sit on the mat with your legs straight. Lean a little backward (45 degrees) keeping the back straight. Bend your knees to balance the body. Raise your arms little more above the shoulder lever. Now slowly swing back and forth the arms to your back. Try to touch the floor behind you. Repeat the same number of times with both arms.

This majorly works on your abs and oblique muscles. It also strengthens your shoulders and tone the arms. Try to keep the torso the same angle the entire time. Keep the motion slow and controlled.

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.

 

Mountain Climber

Get into a push-up position. Keep your hands below the shoulders. Do not arch the back up or down. It should be straight. Keep the core tight. Bring the knees to your chest level one by one. Make it as quick as you can.

Start with 45 seconds.  Gradually, you can increase as per your strength.

It is a full lower body workout. It works on your abs, hips, thighs, knees. And also strengthens your shoulders and arms. Remember to NOT arch your back. Keep it straight.

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 – M

Mind & Memory

Many people nowadays complain about their decreasing memories. Why ?? Because people are more dependent upon other resources than their own minds. You keep reminders on your mobile instead of your memory. It is obvious that your memory will get weak. You have to train your mind. You have to wake it up and make it work. Don’t be lazy. Be active.

  • Be mentally active.
  • Eat dry fruits. esp. almonds and walnuts.
  • Get organized.
  • Sleep well. Eat well.
  • Use all your senses.
  • Avoid Stress, Anxiety, and Depression
  • Play some brain games.

Tip of the day

Be active. Be aware of every moment and every action your body does.
