- Stop Slouching
The key is perfect posture and it also enhances your confidence and helps reduce the risk of workout - related injuries. Lengthen your back and neck, and remember to tighten your stomach. Do not look down, never look like you are apologizing, and keep your chin up.
- Loosen Up
Tight hamstrings can tame your tease. Start standing up with your legs together and slowly reach for your toes. Then take a step apart and stretch down again. Repeat until the distance between your legs is comfortable, but does not hurt.
- Tone Your Tummy
Have you ever heard of the Shimmy-Shake? No, not the Beatles song...the dance. Well, that particular dance move works wonders for your belly and hips like no other once you get it down. Start by bending each knee in turn - you will find your hips will begin to shimmy up and down. Shake the hips rapidly, tummy tightened, while bending your knees one at a time.
- Hot Hips
Hip circles - think Shakira. Stand with your right leg a step ahead of your left, arms raised and clapsed over your head with your right knee bent, roll the right hip in a circle towards your audience (or your mirror). Repeat with your left side, circling left with both knees bent, roll your hips in a figure eight for an extra burn.
See you next time,
