Want to lose weight, to tone your body? Try to abstain from unhealthy snacks, but you don’t find the time for some fitness exercises? Do not have to! We do not need hours every day for workouts, just a few minutes for short exercises. With this light exercise we will burn the fat from our belly and hips.
Best exercises for your hips
Therefore, today I will give you five simple fitness exercises that you can “sneak” through everyday tasks. And don’t tell me you do not have 5 minutes a day, because I don’t believe! Let’s begin!
1. High Knees Exercises
Raise your right knee so that your thigh is parallel with the ground and try to touch your knee with your left elbow. Let your foot down and repeat with the opposite knee and elbow. To make the movement more challenging try skipping or running. Do this exercise for a half of a minute.
2. Squat Jumps
Stand straight and squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground, then get up jumping. Jump straight up with as much force as possible. As soon as you land drop directly into the squat position. From a squat to a jump and back is one repetition. Do it for one minute.
3. Mountain Climber Exercises
Adopting pushup position, bring your right knee close to your chest and then change the position of the knees, jumping slightly. In this exercise, you should not raise your hips. Try to keep them to the floor as closer as you can. Do this exercise for one minute.
4. Burpee Exercises
Squat and place your palms on the floor then jump with your legs backwards so that you land in pushup position. Do a pushup, then bring your legs in starting position through a small bounce. Jump up and raise your arms above your head. Do it for one minute.
5. Lunge Jump Exercises
Make a lunge with your left leg forward. Jumping, bring right leg forward and lower your body so you get back in the lunge position. Perform this exercise for one minute.
6. Walk In Place
Walk in place, bringing each knee until thigh becomes parallel with the ground.
Of course, you should not think that, by moving just 5 minutes per day, you will lose weight magically. But it’s a start, especially if your lifestyle was a sedentary one before. Once you get used to the effort, you can increase the time devoted to these fitness exercises and the results will not delay to appear.
