Fruits my love, tons of fruits!
- squats (works best when you have weight on your shoulders)
- going up the stairs
- lean against a wall and do leg raises (lift your leg behind you as high as you can, and do as many reps as you can, when it starts burning it starts working)
- in your bed / on the exercise mat lay on your back as if you are ready to do sit-ups except with your legs a bit more distant and then from that position lift your butt as high as you can and do as many reps as you can and as fast as you can. at first you won’t feel anything but the more reps you do you will start feeling it ;) after the last one remain in the “butt up” position and hold for 15 seconds. this is also great for your abs as well :)
own experience and research when needed. girl haha
hahaha thank you and I am glad it helps!
you’re doing perfect! and it is absolutely normal, it depends on your body and also your starting weight. bigger people tend to lose a lot faster, while an average person will have to work a lot to see progress. just keep exercising and try to do more and more with every work out! i mean look at you 3 is better than nothing!!! congrats and don’t give up!!
1. Alternating Supine Leg Walks
Start off by laying on your back with your hands under your buttocks. Lift your legs so they are vertical. Contract your abs so your midsection is tense.
Then, lower 1 leg so your foot is a few inches from the ground. Hold there for about 1 second, then return that leg to the starting position. Alternate which leg you lower.
Try a reps and really try to feel the lower abs working.
2. Supine Reverse Crunches
Start off by laying on your back with your hands under your buttocks. Lift your legs so they are vertical, then bend your knees at a 90 degree angle. Contract your abs so your midsection is tense.
Keeping your knees bent at the same angle, slowly lower them until the back of your feet are a few inches above the ground. Then, bring your knees up towards your chest and really squeeze your abs while doing this.
3. Leg Lifts
Start off by laying on your back with your hands under your buttocks. Lift your legs so they are vertical.
Contract your midsection by engaging the upper abs.
Then, lower both legs so that the back of your feet are right above the ground. After holding that position for a few second, return your legs to the vertical position.
Lie on the floor and extend the legs straight up with knees crossed. Place your hands behind the head for support and contract the abs to lift the shoulder blades off the floor, as though reaching your chest towards your feet.
Lie on the floor and place hands on the floor or behind the head. Lift the knees, bending them to 90-degrees and contract the abs to curl the hips off the floor, reaching the legs up towards the ceiling.
running is good for that :) it’s the squats and lunges that give you the butt so i guess don’t do them and focus on running and sweating
keep on working though, you don’t get abs overnight :)
i personally do it as if i didn’t have exams because i’m not the most studious person. but if you do study a lot, then take breaks in between and do crunches and stuff like that. when you’re done studying for the day do a full half an hour work out and you’re set. if anyone has any other ideas please feel free to share!
yes. very good!! works out your whole body and burns calories fast.
crunches don’t work if that’s the only thing you do as a workout. also, if you don’t feel the burn when you do them, then you’re not doing them right or they are too easy for you and you need to find a new position that is more challenging. and back problems probably occur due to the wrong practice of it. i guess it also depends on people and their bodies, but running and other cardio exercises is definitely needed before or after those crunches.
it depends on the person. wait until you don’t have that “full” feeling anymore. for me that usually takes around 30 minutes. test yourself :)
i’m gonna do this too :D THANKS FOR SHARING :)
