Best Exercise Techniques for Women
Every woman is familiar with the main trouble zone where most fat accumulates, that is the lower abdominal section. Several women find it difficult to fit into a two piece swimsuit usually due to shyness arising as a result of extra flab accumulation in their thighs and abdomen. As the era of having a toned body with abs visible is in, I have come up with five best workout techniques that women can inculcate in their daily routine to achieve their dream figure!
Single Leg Deadlift
This exercise is the most crucial one for activating the core of the body, which is the lumbopelvic hip complex and the thoracic and cervical spine, which is also the body’s center of gravity. If the core is strong, the body becomes automatically strong and toned up. This technique is also essential to prevent back pain.
Technique Take a pair of dumbbells and stand on your left foot. Raise your right foot backwards and bend your knee so that the right lower leg is parallel to the floor. Bend forward at your hips, and slowly lower your body as far as you can. Pause a bit and then push your body back to the starting position. As you come up, think about using your glutes to push your hips forward instead of lifting from your back. Keep core engaged and chest up during the entire movement.
It is an exercise that works the entire body. It also tightens chest muscles and burns a considerable amount of calories.
Technique Get down on all fours with feet close together and hands slightly wider and in line with the shoulders. Ensuring that your hips are lifted and core is braced all the time, lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor and then push yourself back up to the starting position.
In order to burn more calories in a shorter period of time, high intensity cardio training must form a part of your exercise routine.
Technique Choose any piece of cardio equipment, it could be elliptical, jump rope, treadmill, bike, etc. and dedicate at least 15 minutes every day for any one type of exercise.
The first and foremost requirement for a good body shape is to have a toned and healthy back. This is the best exercise for the back muscles and it also takes care of back pain.
Technique Lie in a face-up position on the floor. Keep your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Raise your hips so your body forms as straight line from your shoulders to your knees. Pause in the up position. Then lower your body back to the starting position.
If you dream of having a slim waistline, then side plank is the best technique to tighten and shrink your bulging sides. It also works the abdominal muscles to its fullest.
Technique Lie on your left side and keep your knees straight. Prop your upper body up on your left elbow and forearm. Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders. Hold this position for 30 seconds. Turn around so that you’re lying on your right side and repeat the exercise.
