5 Simple Chair Exercises To Help You Reduce Belly Fat And Lose Weight
Most of us think that you can reduce and eliminate belly fat by going to the gym every day. However, this cannot be done, as most of us are very busy. In one report it was discovered that average Americans only have nearly 4 hours daily as a free time and it is usually spent on eating, social media and commuting.
This means that you only have 36 minutes to exercise daily, and it is not going to be in the gym.
You should not worry as you can also try and burn fat at work and you be doing that in your chair, which is pretty awesome. Just continue reading and see these great exercises.
1. Knee Pull-Ins
First sit upright on the chair and sit on the edge of the chair. To make this exercise, just lift one knee in the belly and use the arms for support. Keep your abs tight and you will feel a pull in the lower abs.
2. Double Knee Lift
It is great for working the entire abs. The arms should be placed on the armrest of the chair and you should lift both knees at the same time towards the chest. Remember you should not lean in the knee, but pull the knees towards the chest. Use your abs and keep them tight!
If there is no arm rests on the chair, you can hold onto the seat.
3. Oblique Pull Ups
Use the exact motion as in exercise 2. The difference is that now you will lean on one side, and this will work your oblique muscles instead. Do this until you feel them working and burning. Repeat on the other side.
4. Floor Reaches
We all hate the love handles so in order to eliminate them do this exercise. Your feet should be placed on the floor and the arms should be stretched in front of you. Using one arm try to reach the opposite foot. You can do this on one side and after on the other, or you can alternate sides after every repetition.
5. Pull Up
If there is a chair with wheels in the office, place it in front of a wall as you do not want the chair to move. Place the arms onto the arm rests and sit upright on the chair. Now lift your body up. Remember to use your abs to pull the knees. Stay in the position for as long as you can and come back in the first position.
These are very simple, but effective exercises that take little time and not more than 20 minutes daily.
