Stand with feet shoulder width apart and hands on hips facing thefront. Without moving your hips turn the upper part of your bodyslowly to the right. Turn your head as far as it will go to look overyour right shoulder. All the while breathe deeply and steadily throughthe nose. Draw your right elbow back and push your left elbow forwardto help. Keep this position for around 30 seconds, increasinggradually to one minute when you are more used to the exercise.
Then turn to the left and repeat the exercise on that side.
This is an isometric exercise, or rather a set of them. This means youare tensing a set of muscles against a static object. These exercisescan be performed either standing up or sitting down. Place the palmsof both hands on your forehead and press back, using around 90 percent of your strength, and at the same time resist the move with yourhead. Breathe in sharply through the nose as you start this exercise,for up to 2 seconds, and exhale steadily through the nose for about 5seconds before relaxing.
Then place the palms of your hands over the back of your head and pushforward, resisting the move with your head as before. Inhale as beforefor around 2 seconds and then exhale for the remaining 5 seconds. Youcan then, optionally, perform two more similar exercises by placingyour left hand against the left side of your head and pressing to theright, resisting the move with your head, and then pressing with yourright hand against the right side of your head.
The breathing is important so as to gain the most benefit from theseexercises. All this will strengthen your neck muscles and graduallywhittle away any excess flab around that part of your body. You’lllook and feel a whole lot trimmer.
This is the easiest one of all – a really fast weight loss exercise -and, as in Exercise 2 above, can be done either standing or sitting.You can have your hands on your hips or hanging loosely at your sides.Contract and tense your stomach, pulling it in as far as you can.Pretend you are trying to let your trousers, or skirt, as the case maybe, drop to the floor without actually unzipping in the usual way.Again, breathe in for about 2 seconds (though you can’t breathe in asmuch as normal as you are contracting your lower body) and out foraround 5 seconds before relaxing. This exercise will help you get afirm and flat stomach.
All these exercises are beneficial to your health generally as well ashelping you lose weight and look trimmer. Try them.
