I have been challenged to shed some weight in 10 days and has been given a chart of how my workout should be.
Days 1,3,5 and 8
Aerobic exercises such as running, swimming or power walking, raises the metabolism both during and after activity, making it less likely that calories will be stored in the abdominal area.
On these days, aim to walk, jog or cycle for at least 30 miutes or til you get breathless.
Days 2, 6 and 9
Stomach – Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Press your lower back to the floor, tightening your stomach muscles as you put both hands behind your head. Bring your right elbow over to your left knee, and then bring your left elbow to your right knee, raising feet slightly and moving in a pedal motion. Breathe normally and keep your knees bent. Repeat for 30 – 60 seconds.
Days 4, 7 and 10
Arms – Lean forward on the floor, hands by your shoulder and knees bent. Press your palms into the floor, straightening your arms. Keep your head, neck, back and hips in line as you lift your body off the floor. When your arms are almost fully extended, hold. Now slowly lower, pushing up again before you reach the floor. Repeat 10 – 20 times.
Legs – Stand upright with your feet hip width apart. Keeping your hips forward and your stomach muscles tight, step forward with the right foot. Drop your left knee towards the floor, bending both knees, keeping the front heel pressed down and the front knee directly over the center of the foot. Push down and forward through your heel to bring your right leg back and return to the starting position. Repeat the other side, alternating 12 – 15 repetitions each side.
