Social media can break your heart sometimes more so if you often see a friend who has been constantly seen in her yoga pants all the time. This feeling is so true as you know you hardly go to the gym because you’re such a busy person and that you need to earn for your keep. But alibis like these are not that easy to say and you know it.
It’s you who has a big problem with time management which that “friend” of yours is an expert at. Look at how she sashays in her videos—look at that butt which you always wanted to have. Isn’t it time for you to change your schedule and insert a few minutes to pave the way towards a more attractive rear bumpers?
Affording a fitness centre is not really a huge issue and not knowing how to budget time to make way for a short exercise regimen is not an excuse. There is always a way as long as you want it and feel like owning it. That is why we have gathered some of the fastest routines which you can use within the comforts of your bedroom or living room.
1. Straight arm leg up plank
To do it:
Get into a push-up position on the floor with arms directly beneath your shoulders and hips forming a straight line from your shoulders to your feet
Lift the left leg, hold for for 5 seconds, keeping your hips in line with the ground (try not to wobble or twist)
Lower the left leg and repeat with the right leg
Aim for 10-15 on each side.
2. Bridge Up:
This is not only good for firing up the butt but for the hip and thighs as well.
Lie down on your back with knees bent and feet firmly grounded on the floor.
Press hips upwards and squeeze your glutes as it is done when doing a gymnastics bridge.
3. The Squat:
Again, this is a good routine for the butt as well as the thighs and leg muscles.
Stand on your feet with hips positioned wide apart.
Push hips backwards and feel the weight going towards your heels.
Push buttocks as far as you can while holding your shoulders towards the back.
Make sure your feet are steady in that position.
4. Bridging up with leg lifts (fitball version shown):
This one can relieve your lower back tension and makes you achieve maximum toning. You can use a rubber exercise mat so that your tailbone doesn’t hurt afterwards.
Extend a leg to push into a bridge position.
Maintain the leg extension for as long as you can.
Repeat action using the other leg.
5. Inner thigh lift:
Toning your inner thighs is highly possible with this fast and easy routine.
Lie flat on the floor with only your left side touching it with your head resting on your upper left arm.
Bend right leg and cross over in front of your left leg.
Using your inner thigh muscle, left your leg 6” off the floor.
