1/9. SIT UPS
Sit-ups are one of the best ways to work out your abdomen and strengthen your core.
To perform a proper sit-up:
- You can start by lying on your back with your knees bent, and feet firmly planted on the floor.
- Cross your arms across your chest, with hands-on your shoulders. The main challenge here is when you go to sit up; you want to think about pushing your lower back down into the floor, so you’re not arching it when you do your first sit up.
- This is very important; you do not want your butt to come up off the ground when you do a sit up.
- Exhale when you sit up, trying to keep your feet firmly planted on the floor. You can also get someone to hold your feet, or anchor them.
Start with 2 or 3 sets of 12 reps to begin. If you want to increase the difficulty, you can put your arms behind your head for a more intense sit up.
Those are the best ways you can start exercise if you don’t have any gym membership or any access to the fancy equipment. You can just use the power of your own body! Working out is an excellent way to make your body and mind feel great!
