One of the main reasons that pushes us to wear the suit and to fish out a forgotten fitness mat can be precisely the slimming. In fact, constant training, often coupled with a diet, can help us KO a few too many “rolls” and tone sagging skin.
Moreover, we can achieve these goals without going to the gym but directly from the living room, with a series of targeted bodyweight exercises.
For example, by choosing the most suitable ones, we could build a short and intense circuit to firm up the flabby, bat-like arms. Generally, however, fat and laxity are deposited right on the belly and are responsible for that extra hole in the belt that can undermine our self-esteem.
In particular, our sworn enemy could be precisely that “bacon” that is located in the lower abdomen and that we could knock out with some simple exercises.
To eliminate the low belly and reduce the waistline, these 5 exercises for men and women even over 40 would be useful
The first of the 5 exercises that could rock your big, lower belly, which tends towards the lower abdomen, is called the reverse crunch.
To do this, we must lie on our backs, with our arms at our sides, legs bent and feet together. Then, working the lower abdominals, we raise the legs, bringing the knees towards the face and lifting the buttocks and part of the back off the ground.
This movement could be repeated for 10-15 consecutive times, for a total of 3 repetitions.
Remaining supine, we raise both straight legs, bringing them to 90 degrees, and we take off the head, neck and arms from the ground. Staying in balance in this position, we begin to rotate the arms.
We could do this exercise for 10-20 seconds and repeat it 3 times.
Always starting from a supine position, we extend the arms along the body, place the hands under the buttocks and raise the legs straight, bringing them perpendicular to the floor.
At this point, alternately, we lower one towards the floor, without touching it, and bring it back to the initial position.
Of these scissors we could perform 10-15 per leg, repeating the exercise 3 times.
Let’s turn on our stomachs and assume the plank position, holding on to our hands instead of on the forearms and extending our arms. From this position, with a jump, we bend the legs, bringing the knees towards the elbows. Then, again with a jump, we return to position.
This particular jump plank could be repeated 8-10 times, for a total of 3 repetitions.
Finally, to eliminate the low stomach and reduce the waistline, we could try one last exercise aimed at training the lower abdominals.
We return to the supine position with the arms extended, bend and lift the legs and lift the head and neck off the ground. Maintaining the balance, we first stretch one and then the other leg, bringing it down.
Again we could do this alternating movement 10-15 times per leg, repeating the exercise 3 times.
Let’s forget about the plank because to tone the whole body here is the ideal exercise with its 5 explosive variants to burn calories
