But always remember- Where there is a will there’s a way! All you need is to find a nice spot in your home where you can do a quick home workout and get that body stretched.
Here 5 easy exercises that you can do at home:
1. Surya Namaskar :
It is a scientifically proven combination of 12 yoga poses. Each posture is known to have immense benefits ranging from strengthening your back, enhancing flexibility, improving blood circulation and promoting weight loss.
Crunches is an isolation exercise practiced in order to target and strengthen your oblique and abdominal muscles. It helps with strengthening your core which is responsible for maintaining good posture, flexibility and lifting heavy objects.
It is a form of exercise that requires patience and consistent practice as your body gradually builds resistance to it.
