For example, this fitness expert Holly Rilinger explains that you don’t need much time to get your body back in shape. In fact, all you need is a certain type of exercise routine, and to stay positive and have fun. Since a good mental attitude is also crucial when you are trying to get fit.
Here’s how to tighten up your body by doing 2 minutes set of exercises:
- Punch To The Left, Punch To The Right
Start with a standing position with your feet wider than your shoulder width. Then, turn your toes 45 degrees outwards and bend your knees, maintaining your hips are parallel to the floor.
Keep your fists on the height of your chin and close to your body. Move your weight on the heels in order to activate the muscles on the backside. Keep this position and punch with the right hand over your body to the left side, while moving both your torso and head at the same time. Repeat the same on your other side. Punch in each direction for 30 seconds without any pauses, move as fast as you can.
- Fast Strokes
At first, lay down on your stomach and lift the body, put your hands below the shoulders. Keep balance with your toes and make sure to keep your hands straight. Jump to the front with the right leg, and instantly lower it beside your right hand. Take a pause for a second, and jump and put your right feet back. Now, take a little break and repeat the same with the left leg. Jump for 30 seconds, as quickly as possible.
- Straight Hops
Lie down on your stomach and lift yourself using your elbows and toes. Use your full-strength jumping with both legs a few centimeters to the left then to the right. Jump for 30 seconds and move as fast as you can, while keeping your backside lower while you jump.
- Winner Jumps
Stand up and place your feet a little wider than your shoulder width. Bend the knees until your hips are parallel to the floor. Extend your arms behind you in a 45 degrees position.
Now jump to the front as further as you can. At the same time, pull out the arms to the front, then lift them right above your head. Come back to the original position and jump again. Perform the exercise for 30 seconds.
