Body sculpting exercise requires repetitive routine. And this “routine” can get boring over time. And what if you have to choose between your favorite TV show and exercise? What to do?
Here’s the thing: you can do both at the same time. You can either “commercial-cise”, do routine between gaps or you can also do it while watching your favorite TV show.
Here are some exercises that you can do:
JOG IN PLACE AND TOE TOUCHES
This is a warm up for your body sculpting exercises. Jogging warms up your muscles while Toe touches stabilize your leg muscles, as well as your ankles and feet. This can also strengthen your hamstring and glute muscles.
First, you need to jog in place for 2 minutes with 10 seconds rest between.
Then, position your feet wide apart. Make sure it is lined with your hips.
Bend at the hip and touch your right toe with your left hand.
Then stand up straight. Bend again and this time, touch your left toe with your right hand. Repeat 10 times on each side.
This body sculpting exercise targets your glutes and quads. This exercise will give your legs a long and lean look.
Stand up straight with your hands on your hips. Then drop your right foot behind your left foot and then alternate sides. Make sure your front foot is pointed straight ahead. Return to standing and repeat on another side.
LATERAL BAND WALKS
Prolonged sitting can cause glute muscles to atrophy. Body sculpting exercises such as lateral band walk help glute muscles to stay in shape. It also helps to stabilize the hips.
Stand with a resistant band placed two to three inches above the knees. Starting with your right leg, place your feet wide apart in line with your hips.
Drop your body in squatting position. Then stand up as you place your left leg to close your feet. Do this on the opposite side. Do this in three sets with 15 repetitions with each set on each side.
A lunge jump sculpts your quads, hamstrings, and glutes. It is also a great cardio exercise because it boosts your heart rate and metabolism.
Stand and bring one leg in front. Make sure that your toes are pointed straight forward.
Bend both knees into a lunge. Place your arms by your sides. Swing both arms up and jump into the air. Repeat with the opposite leg in front. Do 3 sets with 10 repetitions with each leg.
You can definitely enjoy these exercises without missing your favorite TV show. Enjoy!
