Exercise Your way to Good Health

Today's woman is hard pressed for time, juggling between home and work. These three exercises will target all major muscle groups, give you a fantastic calorie-burning boost and will get you fitter and in an all-round shape in no time.

  • Kneel on all fours with your arms straight and hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Look downwards so that your neck, back and upper legs form a straight line.
  • As you inhale, bend your arms to move your body towards the floor. Hold for a second, then exhale as you push yourself up to the starting position.
  • Begin in the squat position, gripping one kettlebell in between the feet with both hands.
  • Inhale as you extend at the hips and keens to swing the kettlebell upward. Bring the kettlebell upward. Bring the kettlebell slightly above shoulder height. Let the kettlebell swing back to the original position back down between the legs.
  • Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Keeping your chest up, a natural arch in your back, and your core tight, inhale as you squat down until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Remember to keep you knees in with your toes.

Caution: Even though exercise is good for health, it is better to consult qualified physician or family doctor before undertaking anything. It will help one. Source courtesy: web.
