8 Exercises For Women to Get That Fit And Feminine Body You Wanted To Brag About
4Plank row jacks with dumbbells
Plank row jacks are a full-body workout which even involves a bit of cardio as well. This exercise is great for toning the body along with losing any excess fat. With dumbbells, it becomes more of compound exercises which help in building strength too.
How to do these
Get into a plank position while holding onto dumbbells in each hand, but keep your legs apart wider than hip-distance. Tighten your core by engaging your glutes so that you can lift your elbow to row with the dumbbell clenched in your hand. You can choose whichever arm left or right to start rowing with first. Remember to keep your neck straight throughout the workout and repeat each row while alternating hands. Do a total of 10 reps per arm and do it for 3 sets.
Sweating helps you lose fat and what better way to work up a sweat than squatting? In fact, with jump squats, you won’t only end up losing fat from your thighs, buttocks, and legs, but will also build better and stronger legs. It even is a great core workout.
Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart and place your hands at the back of your head. Push your hip backward while you bend down. Ensure that your arms and shoulders remain straight. Once you squat down, jump up explosively and when you land, lower your body and squat down once again. Do 15 reps of these for a total of 3-4 sets.
5Bridge with a ball
Performing the bridge exercise with a stability ball will not only help in toning your glutes but will also strengthen your lower back too.
Lie down on your back and place your feet with your knees bent on the top of a stability ball. Press with your heels to raise your hips into the air while squeezing your glutes. Keep your shoulders tight as it will help you remain stable and not loose balance. Proceed to lower your hips back down to the ground while keeping the ball still. Do it for 15 reps, for 3-4 sets.
