Many will agree that the most difficult thing to do is to lose weight, especially the one at our belly.
Also, a lot of people don’t have time or desire to go to the gym or other centers for exercising, however there are also some exercises that can be done in your home.
We guess that you have already heard about the plank and its effects and benefits for the body which include making your abdomen, back and glutes tight and strong. There are a lot of variations from this exercise, so you should definitely try them in order to have the best results. If you want to stay fit and have a good shape of your body , then you should do this exercise that we are going to explain bellow, but as an addition of aerobics two times in the day.
So, this exercise can be easily done at your home, while as aerobics you can go for a walk for 30-40 minutes after having dinner.
The most important thing in this exercise is to keep a proper form. Your body should be in a straight position. If you feel that your hips start to go to the ground, then you should return to the beginning position, correct and align yourself.
After a while, you will find it easier to do this, so you can make it harder by using some weight, maybe include a vest, or start standing on one leg instead of two.
If this is a new thing for you and you just started to exercise and find this difficult, then you can lower on your elbows and forearms. It is also important to remember that before any exercise you need to warm-up a bit.
You can do that on the following way: sit down on the floor and straighten your legs in front of you and keep your back straight. Then start leaning until you get to a 45-degree angle with the floor and keep your hands by your side with your palms open and the arms in line with the shoulders, slightly put behind the hips.
The go up with your hips to make the body in a straight position, and hold on using your hands and heels, while your glutes and core are tight. Also try to keep your belly sucked inside. Look in the direction of the ceiling and hold like this for 15-30 seconds. Then slowly start going back to the beginning position. Then do this exercise again, and repeat it 10 -15 times. And then make the traditional plank for 30 seconds – 1 minute.
