A five minute workout that replaces one hour in the gym. An exhausting workout in the gym doesn't suit everyone and let's be honest, sometimes we have no time for it. However, this is not an exercise to avoid exercise. Quick interval training is really effective due to its high pace. A large number of calories is burnt in a short period.
Let's try these five simple exercises that will take you just 5 minutes.
Exercise number one: Squats
Place your feet shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. Start crouching down pulling the pelvis back as if you want to sit on a chair. Crouch as low as possible keeping your back straight. Return to the initial position, straining the leg and butt muscles. You need to repeat this simple exercise for only 60 seconds.
Losing weight in such problem areas as the legs, buttocks and belly is probably the most prevalent issue in fitness. The beginner level exercises like squats are pretty effective and beneficial. If you perform this exercise regularly every day, your whole body will transform within a month. For this easy exercise you don't need special equipment or gym membership. You can perform it just about anywhere.
Exercise number two: push-ups
Take the plank position with your arms straight, your hands should be shoulder width apart and knees shoulders and feet are in one line. Slowly start lowering your body bending your arms and keeping elbows close to your body. Return to the initial position for a start. You should perform the exercise for at least 30 seconds.
This exercise greatly works the pectoral muscles and triceps. If you're new to push-ups, begin by doing them on your knees or while resting against a chair or sofa.
Exercise three: Mountain Climber
The starting position is the same as in the previous exercise. Tense your abs, lift the right leg and pull it to your chest. Your back and hips must be stiff. Go back to the initial position and do the same for the left leg. This exercise takes about 30 seconds. Take your time and watch your posture.
