EXERCISES YOU CAN DO IN A METRO FOR A TONED BODY
1. Tummy tuck FTW!
Do you often struggle to find a seat in the metro? Don’t bother, just stand straight and suck in your tummy. Keep it tight and hold it in for a few seconds. Now release and relax. That’s it!
Basically, this exercise will activate your core muscles and keeps your stomach firm and flat. You can repeat it as many times as you want. In case, you feel any pain or uneasiness–then please avoid doing it. Note: This exercise should be avoided after meals.
2. Calf raises for toned legs
Standing again? Don’t fret! Just stand on your toes and stretch your calves upwards. Hold for four to five seconds and then relax. Repeat this about 20 to 25 times. If you feel any pain, please avoid doing this exercise.
3. The butt clench
Now if you like to have firm glutes then this one is just for you. Just stand straight and clinch your buttcheeks and hold for five to 10 seconds. Repeat it eight to 10 times. Although there are no after-effects attached to this one, it is still advisable that you stop in case you feel any pain.
4. Do the roll baby!
Now this one you can do while standing or sitting. I usually don’t get the time to stretch my muscles, but joint rolls are really important to release tension. Neckroll, wrist roll, and foot rotation are easily doable. Just stretch your arms and legs, and rotate your feet and wrists–first clockwise and then anti-clockwise. Do a rep of 15 each. In case, you find yourself in an empty(ish) compartment, you can also exercise your shoulders by simply shrugging about 25 times.
