Squatting

This is perhaps the most basic exercise in the fitness movements. In just a single fell swoop you can work out your legs, the core and the rear making a very sleek toned physique. To perform the squat movements simply stand on your feet at least a shoulder width apart and also using your upper body straight and your toes slightly pointing out. Now, place your hands on your hips and set your eyes looking straight. Lower your behind, pretending to be sitting on a chair. Make sure your knees does not travel preceding your toes. Stand. And then repeat this move for 20 or more. To get it more intense, you could grab a book, a dictionary will do or you could even hold cans of beans.

Push Up

A push up is all about toning your upper body. Your shoulders, chest, back, core and arms will be toned also. Put your hands up in parallel with and a little bit broader than your shoulders. Keep your toes on the floor or the ground and your heels in the air, flex your feet. Maintaining your body position in a full upright position from your head to heels, force off the floor till your arms are fully broadened. Get down till your upper arms is straight to the floor, and then unbend your arms once again for more repetitions. Go for at least 10 to 20 a set, but whenever one is excessively hard, do press-ups on your knee joint till you get firmer. To get it harder, bring your hands nearer, get up one leg, or you can bring up your feet on the chair or steps.
