So you do not have time to hit the gym. You can still take 10 minutes out of your work and perform these exercises anywhere—your cabin, your room or the park. These are no equipment exercises, and all you would need is your balance and the right technique. So get started with these exercises recommended by Delhi-based fitness trainer Mohit Chatwal.
Reverse lunge: Lunges are meant to tone your glutes as well as your thigh muscles, giving you a shapely lower body. To start with, you should be through doing this with a minimum of 10 times and proceed to 3 such sets. You could experiment with variations, once you are comfortable with the basic technique.
Lateral lunge: This exercise will work your quads, glutes and inner thighs. While you perform this exercise, be sure to keep your weight on your heels. Do two sets of 10 repetitions on both the sides.
Squats: Regular and break-free squats will show faster results. Go at a stretch with 20 such squats at a time and only let it increase. Do them with or without weights. They help strengthen the surrounding areas, as well such as the bones, ligaments and tendons.
Hip abduction: Hips abduction, as the name suggests, is useful for your hips and your outer thighs. It tones down the area into a much leaner figure. This emphasises on balancing your body on either side, only with your elbow. This would require you to lie own on your mat, so choose your space accordingly.
Side jumps: This exercise is particularly useful for women with wide hips. It will target the primary muscles responsible for shaping your butt. You can just place a block and stand next to it. Then jump on one side of the block without touching it, jump back to the original position and drop on the other side.
