Cardio training will increase your heart rate and it will cause you to burn fat. A good type of cardio training is aerobics, for example. Try to combine cardio with strength training like bench pressing and weight lifting.
The great thing about the following two exercises is that you can do them from the comfort of your own home.
- Exercise 1: Lay down on your back (preferably on something like a yoga mat but a carpet will do too) and tense up your buttocks as if you’re trying to hold a coin between your butt cheeks. Stretch out your arms and legs. Lift your arms, shoulders and legs from the ground and stay in this position for ten seconds. Release, and then repeat the exercise as often as possible in one minute.
- Exercise 2: Lay down on your stomach on a mat or carpet. Keep your neck in line with your spine. Lift your feet, arms and breast from the ground. Go ‘swimming’ by lifting your arms and legs higher and moving them up and down. Keep this going for one minute, rest for 15 seconds and then repeat the exercise.
