Staying physically active is very important and especially if we consider the stressful lives we all lead. We need to pay more attention to ourselves and don’t allow our busy schedules get in the way of our health and overall well-being.
Starting a new fitness routine is always difficult, but only at the beginning, until you get used to it, after a while it will become an indispensable part of your everyday life.
Laying on the ground on your back, lift both legs into the air. Placing your arms out to your sides, lift the lower half of your body and your legs upward as if you are trying to curl your entire body backward. Lower your body back downward and repeat.
Lie with your stomach down. Bend your elbows to a 90 degrees angle. Your body should be flat while you support your body on your forearms and toes. Keep your abs tight. Trying to balance with your assembled feet will increase the abs muscle pressure. Keep your legs tight and straight. The lower body muscles are activated as well. Your back should be straight as well as the rest of your body. Bring the stomach in, but don’t stop breathing. Keep your elbows under the shoulders.
Lie on your back on an exercise mat (or soft ground). Wedge your hands under your butt. Slightly raise your shoulders and feet off the floor (keep a slight bend in your knees) – that’s the starting position. Using your abs, raise your legs to approx. 30 degrees. Keep the rest of your body steady. Then slowly lower your legs back to the starting position (don’t let them touch the floor). Repeat until you complete your reps.
