Do you think you have no time to exercise? Stop making excuses not to exercise! Even if you are so busy, I’m sure you have free 10 minutes a day, right? I’ve got a list of exercises that will definitely fit into your busy life! Do these 10-minute exercises every day three times a week and you will feel slimmer and stronger in weeks. Here are a few easy 10-minute fat burning exercises.
1. Chair squats
Strengthen your thighs with this chair squats exercise. Stand in front of a chair with your feet hip distance apart and your toes forward. Lean your chest slightly forward, bend your knees, tap (but don’t sit!) bottom on chair, and stand up. Keep your knees over toes and keep your weight in your heels. Do at least 10 to 12 reps.
2. Chair dips
This is one of the best exercises for your triceps. Sit on the edge of a chair, with your hands on the front next to hips. Now slide your bottom off the edge of the chair and bend your elbows to 90 degrees. Keep your back close to the chair, and push back up. Try to do 10-12 reps.
3. Oblique crunches
The oblique crunch exercise is one of the best fat burning exercise workouts. Lie on your back with your knees bent. Cross your left ankle over your opposite knee. Now place your right hand behind your head and lift your right shoulder toward your left knee, and then release down. Do at least 10-12 reps, and don’t forget to switch the sides.
4. Butterfly abs
Lie on your back and place the soles of your feet together. Relax your knees out to the side. Now place your hands behind your head, with your elbows out. Tighten your abs, lift your chest and your shoulders up. Release back down. Do 10-12 reps.
Place your right foot on a sturdy platform or a stair, and step up with your left leg following. Now step down with your left leg, reaching back approximately 12 inches, with your right leg following. Make sure you keep your chest lifted. Switch sides. Do 12 reps. When you get stronger, you can try this exercise with weights.
6. Modified push-ups
The modified push-up is less challenging exercise than a classic push-up. Get down on all fours on the floor with your knees together. Walk your hands out and raise your feet. Move your hands a bit wider than your chest. Your back, your head, your neck and your butt must be in alignment. Tighten your abs, you’re your elbows and lower your chest toward the floor. Now press back up. Do 10-12 times.
7. Standing hip extension
This is a great exercise that works your entire core. Use a chair for balance. Stand with your feet hip distance apart. Shift your weight to your right foot, extend your left leg behind. Raise and lower your left foot, squeeze your butt. Do 12-15 reps.
Do one set of every exercise with some rest in between. When you have done them all, drink some water and repeat twice more. Do you know any other 10-minute fat burning exercises? Share your thoughts, please!
