Regular exercise plays a crucial role in our general health, but many people lack the motivation to go to the gym. There are many workouts for women that you can do at home with only a medicine ball and a pair of dumbbells. Just remember to breathe during the exercises: exhale on the hard part and inhale when you do the easy part like lowering the body during a push up.
Women want to be able to wear a strapless dress that exposes the arms and shoulders without being embarrassed by flabby arms. Shape those areas with this simple workout. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and grab a pair of dumbbells. Keep the arms at your sides and raise the weight diagonally in front of the body so they form a V shape. When they are parallel with the floor hold for one second and return. Repeat 20 times.
Abs and core strengthening
For this exercise you need a 10-pound medicine ball and a stability ball. Lie on the stability ball face-up with the upper body and head resting on it. Keep you feet together grounded on the floor and grab the medicine ball. Hold it against your chest and lift it up until your arm are straight. Do 2 sets of 10 repetitions.
Legs and thighs
Place a Swiss ball against the wall and hold it in position with your lower back while your keep the feet shoulder-width apart. Lower your body by bending the knees. Maintain your upper body straight. Hold for 3 seconds and return to the initial position. Do 1 or 2 sets. These workouts for women can be done every day.
Lie on a bench on the back with the face up and hold a dumbbell over your chest with your right arm. Place your left arm on your abs. The right arm must be straight with the palms slightly turned inwards. Lower the dumbbell to the side of your chest, rest and then quickly return to the starting position. Do 2 sets with each arm. Complete workouts for women incorporate this exercise because it works not only your chest, but your abs, shoulders, arms and glutes.
This exercise helps relieve tension in your lower back and also tones the glutes. Lie on you back with arms at sides and knees bent. Lift the hips up and hold for 1 second then return to the initial position. You can extend one leg at the top pf the lift to increase the difficulty level. Do 3 sets and be careful not to over-arch the spine.
