We have tried numerous fancy workout tools for body trimming, but somehow we just can’t seem to find the perfect combo of tools that will be an all-round solution.
Real body sculpting results come when you start exercising on a regular basis and realize that getting back to basics can go a long way. This is why we decided to give you these 5 easy but effective body sculpting workout moves that will help you get the job done.
Go down in plank position, with your hands positioned underneath your chest with thumbs and forefingers together forming a triangle shape.
With core engaged, slowly start bending your elbows, flaring outward only slightly as you lower your chest. Press back up to starting position.
Reps: 10 to 12
2. Stability Ball Reverse Extension
Lie on a stability ball facing down, with hands and toes on the floor, hands below shoulders, and lower torso on top of the ball.
With legs pressed together and core engaged, slowly start lifting up your legs. Once the legs are parallel to your torso, lower them and return to the starting position. Make sure you don’t lift your legs higher than hips.
Reps: 12 to 15
Start from the standing position. Hinge hips and bend knees, lowering your palms towards the ground. Start inching your body forward, and walk with your hands out, one at a time. Feet stay where they are.
Go into a fully outstretched plank position, but make sure you keep your core engaged and spine neutral.
Do everything in reverse and return to the starting position.
Reps: 6 to 8
4. Side Plank And ‘Hip Dip’
Begin with a regular side plank position, on your left side. Slowly and carefully drop left hip toward the mat and keep it hovering a few inches above. Move hips back up to starting side plank position.
Reps: 6 to 8
5. Sumo Squat Thrust
Start with a standing position with feet hip-width apart and toes facing outward only slightly. Hinge hips and lower into a sumo squat position. Make sure your core is engaged.
Place your hands on the ground and step with your feet back to high plank position. Reverse the movement by stepping feet back to your hands and return to starting position.
Reps: 8 to 10
