Everybody, move your body! This song from the yesteryear’s (Backstreet Boys, you got that right) could very well be our fitness mantra. We are constantly complaining about the lack of time, and that also impacts our exercise routine. More often than not, we end up missing out on our workouts, because what’s the point of short workouts, right? Well no, even a 15-minute full body workout can help you with strength, stability, and stretching. And who else to guide us better than celebrity nutritionist and exercise science expert Rujuta Diwekar?

In her recent Instagram post, Diwekar has created a simple and effective exercise plan that can be performed by everyone, irrespective of their fitness levels. You can either do these exercises independently, as an addition to any other exercise you are already doing.

Check out the post here:

3. Chair squats (3 sets, 5 reps)

  • Stand in front of your chair, facing away from it.
  • Make sure your feet are shoulder-width apart, and your toes are pointing straight ahead.
  • Keep your spine neutral, and your head and chest raised.
  • Your core must be engaged, as you bend your knees, and lower your hips down and back.
  • Tap the chair with your butt, but do not sit down.
  • Do this a few times, before getting back to the starting position.

Apart from these exercises, squeeze inner thighs (3 sets, 5 counts), arm raises (3 sets, 5 reps), arm and leg raises (3 sets, 5 count hold), and do a split, holding it for a minute.
