We all know that the way to a nicely toned and bombshell body involves a lot of exercise and eating a healthy diet as well. There are many challenges and programs which supposedly offer this, but most of them fail in their attempt to make you look better. Also, most of us just don’t have the time to spend hours in the gym due to our busy lives and work obligations. However, there is something that can help.
Have you heard about the Tibetan exercises? This set of exercises is gaining a lot of popularity worldwide. The exercises are aimed at toning different groups of muscles, but they will also boost your immune system and raise your energy levels, while slowing down the aging process. All you need to do is perform them every morning and you’ll soon be able to look better than ever before.
Here are the top 5 Tibetan exercises which will make you look great:
Standing forward bend
Start bending from your hips from a standing position while keeping your back straight and your neck relaxed. Fold until your head is parallel to the ground and keep your feet straight and flat on the ground. Now, keep going down until you can, then support your weight by putting your fingertips on the floor.
Lie on the floor and bend the left knee, then cross that leg over the other. Now, start pushing the bent knee with your hand down to the floor but make sure not to lift your shoulders off the ground. For a bigger challenge and deeper stretch, start straightening the bent leg slowly.
Lie down on the floor with your feet flat on it and your knees bent while keeping your hips up and toes pointing upwards. Keep your thighs parallel to the ground and your hands under your body with your chest lifted up to the ceiling. Leave your head and neck to fall down to the ground and look up.
Go into the so-called corpse pose (savasana), with your feet close to each other and your hands close to your body. Now, start bringing the legs to your chest and lift it slowly. Put your hands on the back and start lifting your legs up – at this point, your body should form a straight line. Hold the pose for 10-15 seconds while breathing normally before bending one of your knees and putting your upper body down with the help of your hands. Lie down in this position for as much as you can, then lift yourself up slowly.
Push your pelvis towards the navel while lying face down on the floor and keep the pubic area tucked under. Your legs should be extended and your arms should be in line with your shoulders. Bend your elbows and tuck the palms under your body. Now, inhale and straighten up the arms slowly, then lift yourself up on the elbows until the chest is off the floor. Don’t push yourself – lift the chest as much as you can while keeping the pelvis on the floor.
Now, push the tailbone towards the pelvis and keep your buttocks firm and your shoulder blades behind the back. Expand your chest and lift it up a bit without moving it forward. Look straight ahead or up depending on your flexibility.
