As an entrepreneur, you are a busy person who does too much thinking and is active in dealing with clients and other individuals involved in your business. However, apart from monitoring your financial activities, you should also be reminded to keep a healthy mind and body. As people now are becoming more and more conscious on what they eat, drink and etc., you should, too! In this article, we will guide you on how to maintain your fitness and wellness by following these exercises:
5 Exercises for lazy Entrepreneurs:
To squat is like to sit but on an imaginary chair. Squatting is ideal to tone your legs and bum. When you are new at this, you will feel pain and sore muscles. But this does not encourage you to stop. At this point, this exercise when done regularly will also give shape and a nice curve to your shoulders. Make sure to keep a good distance between your legs and knees and keep your back straight when performing squats.
2. Triceps Extension
A good way to get rid of the flab in your arms is to do tricep extensions. First, lie on a mat or on the floor with your legs straight. On your back, put your hands straight above your head with your arms stretched fully. Push forth your elbows to the front at 90 degrees then move them back to your ears. If you have shoulder problems, this exercise is not suggested for you.
Body weight pushups can be done anywhere in your house, in the nearby park, or at the gym without the need of any heavy equipment. You just be able to lift your body in the standard pushup position. The proper way is to put your hands wider than your shoulder width and work out on those triceps and shoulders. If you’re a beginner, you can do the half pushups and only push your body halfway down to the floor and up again.
Crunches, when performed correctly and continuously, are great if you want to have abs. It is recommended to have about 15 sets of crunches a day. You just have to move your neck to your abdomen while keeping your hands behind your head. You should feel that your muscles in the abs are “crunching” without putting undue stress on your back. Then you can intensity the motion by raising your legs from the floor and cycle them on the air. If you are not yet comfortable with this technique, you can keep your legs bent on the ground.
Side planks are an easier option than full planks and are equally great exercises to tone the sides of your stomach. Like pushups, you should be in a pushup position but you should just be able to keep at that position without moving for about 20 to 30 seconds. To know if you’re doing it at the right angle, you should see a small bridge from the edge of your feet to the lower part of your arm. Then your hips should be held with your legs outstretched.
