Fitness Workouts

Working out for fitness means that one builds up core strength to increase stamina and perform daily chores without much exertion. Include the following fitness workouts in your daily workout program. Choose up to 3 exercises from the list and workout 2 – 4 times in a week.

Abdominal Crunches: Lay flat on your back, place your hands behind your head, bend your legs. Raise your shoulders off the ground and bend forward so that your chest touches the knee. Then, go back to your previous position and repeat this cycle. This is a very well known exercise among fitness workouts.

Bicycle Kick: Lay flat on your back and raise your legs. Imagine yourself riding a cycle and follow the same movements as in pedaling.

Pushups: Lay flat on your abdomen. Rise slowly with the help of your hands. Pull your body up so that your weight is balanced on the toes and supported by your arms with palms lying flat. Now move up and down by bending the elbow with each movement.

Bench Crunches: Lay flat on your back, but this time on a bench. Bend your hand back to hold the edges of the bench. Now bend your knees and raise your lower back along with the bent legs upwards such that your knees almost touch your nose. Come back to the original position and repeat the cycle.

Hanging Leg Raise: Hang from a cross bar and pull your legs up to your chest and bring them down slowly. Repeat this cycle.

Elbow Bridge: Put your elbows on the ground, under your chest. Pull yourself up on your toes with your weight on your forearms. Hold in this position for as long as you can and go back to your previous position.

Forward Roll: This is one of the typical gym fitness workouts. To begin with, using a Swiss ball, place your arms on the ball while balancing your body on the feet. Move the ball with the help of your forearm and simultaneously, move your body also along with it, forward. Perform this routine forward and backward, as many times as you can.

The fitness workouts mentioned above will strengthen most of the muscles in your body and keep them geared to face everyday challenges.
