Kettlebell deadlift

Not only does this exercise help to build strength in your glutes, hamstrings and calves, it's great for improving balance too.

  • Step 1 : Start by leaning your torso forward and grabbing a kettlebell with your right hand. Raise your right leg behind you in a straight line, utilising your glute and core strength.
  • Step 2 : As you pull the kettlebell up to waist height, lower your foot to the floor. Hold for 3 seconds, tucking your bum in and engaging your core. Repeat the exercise on the other side.

Goblet squat

The squat has always been a staple exercise to tone the lower body. But it's another fab full-body exercise. The goblet squat works your glutes, quads, calves, core and arms. It's not an exercise to skip!

  • Step 1 : Stand with your feet hip-distance apart, holding a kettlebell upside down at your chest. Inhale at the start of each squat.
  • Step 2 : Shoot your bum back into a deep squat, keeping your chest and eyes lifted.

Toning your stomach

Tummy exercises for a stronger midriff

A problem area for many, it's the part of the body people love to hate. But with ab exercises, advice, and all the right equipment to target your core, let us help you start your mission for that toned tummy.

Tips

  • Start with cardio and a healthy diet to burn fat before diving into stomach exercises. Tackle the tummy fat first, then amp up those ab workouts for a toned midsection.
  • Don't forget to stretch your muscles before and after a workout to reduce the risk of injury. Cobra pose, cat and cow pose, and side stretches are a few you can start with.
  • Use equipment like kettlebells, resistance bands, and medicine balls to add more impact to your workouts.

  • Step 1 : Sit on the floor with your knees bent and ankles together (for higher difficulty, raise your feet a few inches off the ground and lean back slightly). Hold the kettlebell or medicine ball with both hands and twist your arms to one side.
  • Step 2 : Hold the kettlebell or medicine ball so that it’s close to, or completely, touching the floor, engaging your core as you do so. Pause briefly, then twist to the other side and repeat the previous steps.

Leg raise with hip thrust

This is a great exercise for targeting your lower abdominal muscles. But it can also double as a bum toning exercise - tensing your bum as you thrust will engage your glutes too.

  • Step 1 : Lie flat on your back holding the kettlebell behind you with both hands. Start with your legs held together, slightly off the floor. Bend your knees into your chest, then extend your legs towards the ceiling.
  • Step 2 : Thrust your hips so that your bum leaves the floor and your legs go towards the ceiling. Tuck your knees back into your chest and return to the starting position. Repeat.
