If you’re tired of repeatedly performing those ab crunches and leg raises, then it’s time to try out something new. Well, celebrity fitness trainer Namrata Purohit is going to tell you what to do. In her new Insta post, she has shared a new workout regime that will not just help you get that curvaceous belly, but will also help in building a strong core – we all know how important that is to have a rock-solid workout routine. She calls it the “rolling series”.
Here’s what Namrata wrote in her Insta post:
“The rolling series – workout at home. Add these core blasting “rolling” exercises to your workout to really work out that abdominal region! Focus on the form, keep the core engaged throughout, and keep breathing!”
All these exercises have some or the other kind of rolling action that will activate the core muscles. This helps to ensure you get maximum benefits, and tone up all those abdominal muscles, just the way you want!
Tips to ace this move: Exhale back up, keep your shoulder relaxed, and engage your core.
Tips to ace this move: Twist on one side, and inhale back up. While doing the movement, look to your arms, so that you get the maximum extension possible. Exhale roll back.
Tips to ace this move: Move the hips up as much as you can. Keep your hands pressed to the mat, so that you can maintain the rolling movement. Exhale up and inhale down. Don’t overdo the momentum. After doing 10 to 15 reps on one ankle, switch the ankle and repeat the reps.
Tips to ace this move: Exhale slowly, while rolling back up. The point of performing this exercise is really working on your core, without using any momentum. You will feel the stretch in your muscle area, especially in your lower abdomen. Namrata suggests that it is very easy to take a jerk and move up. But moving slowly and feeling the entire move is what is going to make a difference.
Just in case, you need some help in lifting up, put your hands across your thighs and lift yourself.
Tips to ace this move: Exhale while rolling back, keep your core flexed for better movement, and keep your neck in a proper position to avoid sprain. Finding your balance is key; try not to kick your legs up.
Adding reps, going slow, and focusing on your breathing are the three ways to fire up your belly, suggests Namrata.
“These exercises are really, really good for the core,” she says.
So what are you waiting for? Try all these coregasmic moves and get the ball rolling.
