Having a beautiful, well-toned body is the dream of many people, but it’s something all too few of us can boast about. However, it turns out there’s a straightforward solution.
1. Stand up straight with your legs shoulder width apart. Grasp both ends of a rolled-up towel, and stretch it vertically in front of you. Without loosening your grip or reducing how tight the towel is, move both your outstretched arms to the right, then upward, describing a half-circle above your head. Then move your arms, still grasping the towel, toward the left side of your body.
2. Having changed the position of your arms (see the photo for guidance), turn the movement into another half-circle going in the opposite direction.
3. The movements of your arms should create a figure eight. But remember: you should make sure that your legs move as little as possible, and don’t swing your hips too much.
This exercise should be performed for one minute, two to four times a day, with the time you spend on it gradually increasing from two to three minutes each time.
It gives your oblique abdominal muscles and those of your back a good workout and also strengthens your arm muscles.
The results will be even more noticeable if you make the day before the start of your second week of carrying out this exercise a day of fasting, as this can help cleanse your body.
The chance to finally obtain a slim waist and a toned abdomen will hopefully act as motivation. So what are you waiting for?
This is what the exercise should look like in practice:
