Surely every woman at least once in their life there is a need to lose weight for a limited amount of time without compromising appearance.
For example, I was invited to the wedding. Trying on my best outfit, I discovered that after the New Year holidays I gained a couple of kilos. I know that by the summer I will lose weight unequivocally, but the wedding, to which I must go, will take place much earlier.
I have neither the time nor the money to visit gyms and fitness clubs. So I decided to do it myself. And for the stimulus, I even made a bet with my girlfriend that in a month I would get rid of the accumulated pounds.
Exercise – the best option
Since I lead a sedentary lifestyle, I decided to start doing the exercises with caution so that physical activity does not affect the state of the cardiovascular system.
I read magazines, surfed the Internet and stopped at the following set of exercises for which neither special physical training nor special conditions are needed. I did them every day to a state of mild fatigue.
We rise to the wall
1. Standing facing the wall and at a distance from it, press the palms of the outstretched arms to it at shoulder level. Keeping your back straight, push up from the wall.
2. Stand facing the wall, move the legs together. First, raise one hand and try to reach as high as possible, then the other hand, then with both hands at the same time.
3. Stand facing the wall, lean on her hands. Take turns to sharply lift one leg, then the other.
4. Exercise similar to the previous one, only the legs need to be sharply lifted back, bending at the same time.
5. Press your back to the wall, tighten your stomach, strain your back muscles. Hold your breath for as long as possible, then exhale the air with a gradual relaxation with a gradual relaxation of the muscles of the body.
6. Facing the wall, lean on it with straight arms. Bend alternately legs, tightening the knees to the stomach.
7. Starting position – straight, facing the wall and at some distance. Raise your foot, put your foot on the wall. Leaning forward, clasp your ankle, touch the face of the knee. Leg down, raise your head, straighten up. Do the same with the other foot.
8. Lie on your back, stretch out. Bend your knees, put your feet on the wall. As far as possible, step with your feet on the wall, straightening the body and supporting the buttocks with your hands.
9. Lying on your back perpendicular to the wall, make scissors with your feet. At the same time the wall helps to keep the legs at a certain height, does not allow them to fall.
Things went smoothly
It seems that in these exercises there is nothing difficult. But that is not the case, I was convinced myself. From the considerable muscular efforts in my first days everything hurt, but this pain was even pleasant.
For the first two weeks I did not specifically stand up on the scales and did not try on my outfits. But when I did this, the result exceeded expectations – 2 kg was gone. And, of course, I will not dwell on this. And the exercises themselves are very tonic.
