Stay Fit in Winters
The winter chill makes everyone feel lazy and put off their exercise programs just to hibernate in the warmth of the home. But you can beat the cold and still follow a workout routine with ease if you opt for a home workout, spending just 45 minutes a day, four to five times in a week.
To start with, let’s talk about squats. Place a chair behind you and standing in front of it bend your knees slowly and squat towards the chair. Your feet should be shoulder width apart. Come back to the standing position do 10-15 reps and rest for a moment and repeat. Follow this with leg raises, sideways and front, in all 30 sets of repetitions each.
For your upper abdomen do crunches. Lying on the back, raise one leg, supporting your head with your hands, bring the head towards the knee. Alternate the leg and repeat. For the lower abdomen, lie flat and bend each leg one at a time.
For the upper body, you can do push ups. With arms a little more than shoulder width apart, place your hands on the kitchen top, bend the elbows and bring chest as close to the counter top as possible and go back up. Do these 10 times, rest and repeat.
Stay active by practicing yoga or running. If you would rather not go out in the chill, the treadmill at a gym or at home is the best to beat the lethargy and make you feel warm and enrgetic.It is also important that you take a nourishing diet during winters and stay away from the usual winter comfort food. There are loads of veggies like carrots, beetroot, broccoli and spinach which will provide essential vitamins and minerals throughout the season. Eat food that will help you avoid weight gain. Not only should you avoid overeating, but also keep yourself well hydrated by drinking a lot of water. And, when it is summer time again, you can walk into any shop fitting into any outfit without having any “leftover”weight from winter.
