Crop tops are a must-have fashion trend this season, but before you choose to flaunt them, get rid of your belly fat. Think celebs have it easy? Let's help you out!
Bollywood celebrities work smart to get their near-perfect bodies. Along with some cardio and healthy eating tips these 4 tricks can help you get that celeb body in no time:
1. Torso Rotations
Torso rotations are great for working your whole abdominal area, including your lower back. These are done with your body alone or with a broomstick! Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, hands on your hips whilst keeping your lower body still, rotate your upper body as far to the left and right as possible. This should be done in steady movements for 15 to 20 repetitions at a time.
If using the broomstick, lay it across your shoulders and hold it with a wide grip. Who says you need a pricey trainer.
2. Lying Twist
The lying twist also works the oblique muscles and improves flexibility. Lie on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you and your arms are out to the side, with your palms flat on the floor. Lift your legs so that they are at a 90 degree angle to the ceiling, then slowly lower them down to the right as far as possible and then slowly repeat on the left side. Continue to repeat this movement in a slow and controlled movement.
3. Leg Lifts
Leg lifts are achieved by lying on the floor with your legs straight. Raise them five inches from the floor either together or on their own depending on your ability and hold them for about 30 seconds. Your back should be close to the floor. Be careful if you have previous back problems when doing this move. Bollywood celebs like John and Hrithik are big fans of this one.
4. The Plank
This classic exercise is usually performed at the end of a workout. But it can also be done at any time and in front of the TV is ideal! You need to be in a similar position as a press up but rest on your forearms instead. Ensure you have a straight back and neck and hold this position for as long as you can, this is beneficial for your core muscles, especially your inner and outer abs.
The Plank is a great exercise for your core strength and celebs like Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan and Rannvijay swear by it.
