There are places on our body that we cannot see in the mirror and we damage them. We keep sitting and standing in wrong postures. Paying attention to our body is imperative for our health. If a person slouches too much or sits in a relaxed posture for long periods of time, they develop folds and lines on their back. Once you have these folds, it might be really hard to get rid of them.
But Relationship Goalshas jotted down a few simple exercises for you that will fix you in no time. Your muscles need exercise in order to stay healthy and beautiful.
To do ‘forward bends’ one should stand straight with their feet positioned with a little distance between them. The feet should be positioned as wide as your shoulders. Slowly and gently lean forward and make sure you do not bend your knees when you do it. Try to touch your toes or the floor, but make sure you don’t push yourself the first time. Do at least 10 bends.
Side bends also start with the same position as the forward bends. Your feet should be as apart as your shoulders. One arm should be behind you with the hand supporting the back of your head, while the other one stays down holding a dumbbell. Slowly bend down from the same side of which you are holding the dumbbell. Make shorter bends and do not go all the way. Do 20 each side.
Everyone knows what pushups are but your body posture should be correct for maximum effects. One should be in a plank position and put all your weight on your arms. Slowly do down, bringing your chin to the ground and slowly bring yourself to the initial position. Do at least 10 to 15.
Start with lying on your stomach. Stretch your arms out and start to bend your back along with your head slowly. While you do this, simultaneously also bring your feet towards your hands. Once your hands and feet are close to each other, grab on to your ankles. Stay in that position for a good few seconds and make sure you breathe slowly. Let your muscles relax and get back to the first position. Do this at least 10 times.
Lie on the floor flat with your arms and legs stretched out. While bending your back lift your arms and legs. Maintain this position for a few seconds and then get back to the first position. Repeat this at least 20 times.
Your starting position should be with your stomach on the stability ball. Balance well before you start doing the exercise, make sure your position is stable. Your legs should be shoulder width apart. Your hands should be behind your head and slowly raise your upper back. Make sure you keep your neck straight and don’t put pressure on your head. Repeat this at least 20 times.
This is one of the best exercises for the back but it is not as easy as it looks. It can be dangerous if you do not know how to do it properly and needs practice. This exercise should be tried after making your body used to exercise for a few weeks.
Lie straight down on the floor and bend your legs. Keep your palms steady on the floor. Start from slowly raising your hips followed by your shoulders. Bend your back and go to the max. The stretch should be felt and maintain that position for a few seconds and then gently go back to the initial position.
