Even though sweater and parka weather are upon us, ‘tis the season to sculpt away that unwanted fat… because let’s be honest any season is the perfect time to sculpt away that unwanted fat, right? In order to fight fat and sculpt, you need to target your biggest problem areas – like your glutes, thighs, and love handles.
Follow these fat-busting moves to get in the best shape this season (or any season!)
Problem – Under arm jiggle.
Solution – Tricep dips.
Sit on the floor or a bench with knees bent at 90 degrees and palms facing out, behind you. Raise your body up and down, dipping your rear until it hovers just above the ground. Keep your elbows pointed straight behind you, and you should feel it in your triceps. Do for 60 seconds and repeat three times.
Problem – Inner thigh jiggle
Solution – Sumo squat
With a dumbbell in each hand, stand with feet hip-width apart, knees slightly bent, and toes pointed out. Keeping a tall spine, stand up straight, bringing your right foot to meet your left. Then, return to low squat position. Repeat for 20 to 25 reps; do 3 or 4 sets
Problem – Flabby chest
Solution – Push-ups
Doing push-ups for 30 seconds followed by a 15-second hold is the key to scoring a toned chest. Repeat 3 times. (If you can’t do a traditional push-up, try an incline variation, placing your hands on a bench.)
Problem – Belly fat
Solution – Mountain climbers
Hold a high plank position for 30 seconds, keeping a flat back. Quickly bring right knee to right elbow, then left knee to left elbow in fast movements for 30 seconds.
