Ask anyone who is trying to lose weight and they will tell you that the most challenging and difficult place to lose your fat is the one around your belly. Anyone aiming to do so will need a lot of time to be spent in the gym. But today with a fast-paced life, busy schedules and engagements which literally run throughout their day-most people find it difficult to find the time. So how do we find a solution to losing fat around your tummy-I guess use the time we have with us at work while we are sitting or at home when we are busy with other stuff-just a few simple exercises are likely to bring awesome results-and these can be done sitting on a chair. Try these out and see a transformed “YOU” :
1. Knee Pull-Ins
Sit straight on the edge of a chair and lift your knees up to your abs. To make it easier, support your knees with hands to bring it up. You should be able to feel a stretch in your lower abs. Follow 10 to 15 reps on each leg.
2. Knee Lifts
Put your abs to work with seated knee lifts, sit on the edge of the chair with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Hold the sides of the chair and bend back slightly. Breathe in and slowly bring your knees up to your chest. Use your abs to crunch your upper body forward. Breathe out as you bring your feet down, continue the movement without letting your feet going on the floor.
3. Obliques Pull Up
This exercise is similar to the last exercise with the only difference that you do this exercise by leaning on to one side of the chair. This movement targets the sides of your abdomen. Follow the reps till you start feeling the burn and then switch on to opposite side and follow the same number of reps.
4. Reach The Floor
Blast off the excess calories and get rid of love handles with seated floor reaches. Sit straight and firm on the chair with your feet flat on the floor. Stretch your arms out to your sides. Bend your body forward and bring your left hand down to touch your right foot. Return back to starting position and follow the movement on the opposite side.
5. Pull Up Exercise
This sneaky seated move will work on your abs, core and arms. Sit straight on a chair with your hands placed on the sides of your thighs. Engage your abs, lift your hips off the seat and bring your knees to your chest. Hold the movement for second and slowly return back to starting position.
