FIT FOR SUMMER TIME

Ex 1 WAIST WHITTLER

To improve your waistline and posture stand with feet apart, arms up at shoulder level, elbows bent with fingertips touching. Pull in your tum, keep elbows up, twist upper body only and take your arms and head to look around right.  Come back to centre and twist on around to look left (keep hips facing forward). Twist 5 times to each side.

Ex 2 TOP UPS

To improve bust line and tone up flabby underarms, stand or sit and raise arms up to shoulder level. Bend elbows, turn your hands to grasp the opposite arm firmly at wrist level. Hold them tight and with short firm movements “push up” imaginary cuffs. Feel your chest muscles jump and your underarm muscles working. This is an effective isometric exercise. Repeat 20 times

Ex 4 LOVELY LEGS
To tone up leg muscles roll over to your right side. Bend knees stacking left leg on top of right leg. Extend your right arm and rest your head. Place left hand on floor in front of waist for support (don’t roll forward or backward). Keep right leg bent but straighten out left leg. Take a deep breath in and as you breathe out lead with left heel and lift your left leg as high as comfortable. Feel your outer thigh muscles working. Lower leg and repeat 10 times. Now roll over to left side, stack right leg on top of left with knees bent. Now, straighten right leg and leading with right heel repeat lifting and lowering 10 times.

Ex 3 TUM TONE UP

To flatten your tum lie down on your back with knees bent, feet on floor shoulder width apart.  Place hands up on your thighs. Pull your tum in and push back of your waist onto ground, tilting your pelvis forward. Maintain this “pelvic tilt” and take a deep breath in. As you breathe out lift your head and shoulders up, sliding your hands towards your knees. Relax back down and repeat 10 times.
