We are pretty sure that you are reading the headline of the article with a smile on your face. If you are a couch potato (like most of us), or you are basically glued to your seat at work, then this article is indeed for you.
Although there are many more benefits that can be gained from other types of exercises, these five simple chair exercises will still help you shed that extra belly fat.
Here are the exercises:
Single Knee Lift
While sitting, bend your right knee, pull it up to your chest and hold for a couple of seconds. Repeat this exercise with your left knee. Do this several times a day and you will burn your belly fat bit by bit.
Double Knee Lift
Hold on to the handles of the chair with both hands and lift your knees together up to your abdomen. By doing this, the pressure you put on your lower abdomen will help you burn out fat in no time. Repeat this exercise as often as you can on a daily basis.
Double Knee Side Lift
This exercise is similar to the Double Knee Lift, except you need to bend your knees to the side of your body. Switch between your left and right side to achieve better results.
Upper Body Rotation
Raise your arms upwards at a 45 degree angle and rotate your waistline from side to side. Do as many rotations as you can and you will “watch” your waistline shrink in the process.
Touch Your Toes
While seated, stretch out your arms wide in an airplane position. Then, use your left hand to touch your right toe and then your left hand to touch your left toe. While you are touching one toe with one hand, make sure that the other hand is still stretched out.
As a finishing touch to the exercise, you can use your hands to lift your bodt from the chair and hold for a couple of seconds before you gently return back to your sitting position.
Do these exercises on a daily basis and you will shed your belly fat in no time!
