Most women are familiar with those difficult trouble zones that require a little bit of extra work to tone and tighten. You may have tried a variety of exercises to get into shape so that you can look and feel confident in this summer’s latest swimwear, sexy cocktail dress, or skinny jeans. We have put together some of the best at home workouts for women that are guaranteed to help you with your booty, inner thighs, stomach, lower abs, and shoulders.
The first exercise is the single leg dead-lift. It is an excellent exercise that you can do at home. It will tone and lift the glutes while benefiting the entire core. It is an excellent exercise to help prevent back pain. You do it with a pair of dumbbells. Stand on your left foot and lift up your right foot so that it is behind your left foot. Then you need to bend your knee and make your right lower leg completely parallel to the floor.
As you do this, slowly lower your body as far as you can while you continued bending forward at your hips. Pause and count to five and then return back to the starting position. As you are going through the upward motion, try to visualize that your glutes are pushing your hips forward rather than lifting them from your back. Keep your chest up and core engaged during the entire movement.
The second exercise to do at home is called the side plank. It is the ultimate weapon for shrinking and tightening your waistline. It is great for working the deep abdominal muscles such as transverse abdominus and obliques. Many ab exercises will not even reach those hard to get at areas.
You begin by lying on your left side and having your knee straight. Slowly prop up your upper body on your left forearm and elbow. Gradually raise your hips so that a straight line is formed from your shoulders down towards your ankles. Try to hold this position for at least 30 seconds. Do the same routine on your right side.
The third exercise, which is a classic exercise, and can be done at home or anywhere is a traditional push-up. The beauty of a push-up is that it burns a lot of calories while at the same time working the entire body. It will also help to tighten your chest muscles so that your summer bikini makes heads turn.
To start this exercise is quite simple. Go down on all fours. Make sure that you place your hands slightly wider than your shoulders but keep them in line with your shoulders. Have your feet close together as you lower your body towards the floor. When your chest is almost touching the floor then it is time to push yourself back upwards to the starting position. During the entire time keep your core braced and your hips lifted.
The above three exercises can all be done as at home workouts for women. As mentioned previously, there are many at home workouts for women but these three will get you the best results.
