Execution:waist trimming exercises side plank

  • Lie on one of the sides on the floor with your legs stacked. Put a rolled-up towel between the thighs. Support your torso on the elbow in such a way that the forearm is perpendicular to the torso. To make balancing easier, you could put your feet one in front another for a wider support base.
  • Lift your hips so that your body forms a straight line head-to-toe. Squeeze the towel between your thighs. Hold for about one second and lower your hips.
  • Perform 10 reps, then switch sides and repeat in 3 total sets.

Targeted muscles: inner thighs, obliques, rectus and transversus abdominis.

 

Round-back leg lifting


Execution:

  • Sit on a folded towel on the floor and put your shoulder blades against a wall. Bend your knees, put your feet flat on the ground, and make sure that your back is rounded. Place your hands on the floor beside your hips with the fingertips pushed into the floor.
  • Squeeze the abs, lift the feet off the floor, bring your knees towards the chest, and straighten your legs so the toes point at the ceiling. Bring your legs about 1 inch closer to the wall and then return to the starting position. Do 10 reps in 3 sets. To make the exercise easier, you could initially only do the exercise with one leg at a time. You could further grasp the calf of the leg and do 30 seconds holds.

Fly up
