7 easy exercises to do at home
For those days when you don’t really have enough time to get to the gym, ambassador Dionne has some easy exercises for you to do at home. In 15 minutes you can train one part of your body really intensively (your bum, say), or do you prefer a full body workout? All you need is a sports outfit, a yoga mat and a water bottle.
Decide on your goal
Choose which part of your body you want to train today and always start with some stretching exercises to warm up your muscles. What is important in every workout is that you raise your heart rate, and make sure you drink enough fluids. Some upbeat music in the background will provide extra motivation. Are you ready?
3x 10 push ups
If the push-up exercise for chest muscles, shoulders and triceps is a little bit too tough for you, you can do it on your knees instead. Do be sure to keep a straight back.
3x 30 seconds planking
The plank trains not just your abdominals but also your lower back (bye, bye love handles), hips and buttocks.
Lunges can make an immediate difference. This exercise trains your legs, buttocks, hamstrings and calves. Need more of a challenge? Use weights or a kettlebell at the gym.
2x 30 air squats
Up for a tight butt and shapely legs? Then you should definitely add the squat to your workout routine!
This is very good exercise for your diagonal abdominal muscles. Keep your core nice and tense to achieve maximum results.
2x 15 leg raises
It’s important to keep your lower back properly on the mat. You’ll really feel this exercise in your lower abdominals!
So, now it’s time to get started! Which exercises are your favourites?
