Simple Chair Exercises To Reduce Belly Fat And Strengthen Core Muscles.

 

 

The Windmill:

 

 

To perform "The Windmill," start with one arm out to the side while the opposite arm crosses over toward the opposite leg.

Then, with a windmill sweeping motion of the arm, change to the other arm and reach for the opposite leg.

This will engage the abdominal oblique muscles. Your goal will be to increase the number of times you can perform this activity.

Try challenging yourself by performing this exercise for the entire length of one of your favorite songs.

To make it even more challenging, try adding hand and/or ankle weights. But try and limit the added weight to no more than 1-2 pounds to avoid injury.

 

 

The Trucker:

 

 

 

To perform "The Trucker," start by bringing your right elbow to your right knee, and crunch your core muscles on your right side.

Then, switch sides and bring your left elbow to your left knee, and crunch your core muscles on your left side.

See how many times you can perform this activity, and then build on it as you progress. This will help reduce your "love handles."  As with the windmill, you can challenge yourself by performing this routine for the entire length of your favorite song.

Also, for an additional challenge, you can add hand and/or ankle weights. Remember, as with the windmill, limit the added weight to no more than 1-2 pounds to avoid injury.

With both of these exercises, see how far you can progress. Your goal will be to increase the number of times you can perform these activities.
