Body Toning Exercises For Women At Home
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Is it possible to get in shape without ever setting foot in a gym? Of course it is, and you don't need to spend a fortune on over priced exercise equipment either. Body toning exercises for women at home can be just as beneficial as any gym workout.

Did you know that one of the main benefits of body toning is the reward of being cellulite free? That's right, keeping your body firm and tone will help keep cellulite lumps away.

Another huge plus to keeping firm skin is the magic power of anti-aging. One of the most noticable signs of aging other than facial wrinkles is a saggy, baggy body!

Here are three body toning exercises for women at home, that will give you exceptional results in very little time.

Tone Inner Thighs: Thigh Lifts 1. Lay on your right side on a flat cushioned surface. Place your left palm flat on the floor, chest level. 2. Keep right leg fully extended, while bending left knee and placing foot flat on the floor in front of the right knee. 3. Flex right foot, and raise right leg as high as possible without straining. Do 12 reps on each side.

Tone Lower Tummy: Reverse Crunches 1. Lay flat on your back on a cushioned surface, with hands behind your head just like you would for a regular sit up. 2. Pull ankles, and knees together and raise them toward the ceiling. 3. Next slowly pull knees in towards your chest. 4. Return to starting position. Start with 10 reps, and build up to 20

Tushy Toner: Pelvic Thrusts 1. Lay on your back, arms to your side, palms flat on the floor. 2. Bend knees, and keep legs shoulder width apart. 3. Tighten buttocks, and press pelvis upward lifting butt and lower back off of the floor. 4. Count to five, and return to starting position. Start with 10 reps and work your way up to 20

These are just a few simple spot toning exercises that are meant to target problem areas. If you are currently in the process of getting back in shape, my advice would be to use a complete body toning routine combined with a cardio workout for ideal body sculpting in the smallest amount of time.

Adding exercise to your daily routine will benefit you in so many ways. You may experience more energy, more self confidence, less stress, and a brand new you!
