This is done by keeping yourself in a plank position with your hands on the floor, and your arms straight and under your shoulders.

Then put your right hand under your left hand and wrap them together so that your palms will meet.

However, if you found the double twisting of your leg to be challenging, then try putting it only on your thigh without having to double wrap or cross it to your other calf/ankle, while you can also only put your other arm below the other and make the lower arms touch each other without having to twist till your palms touch each other.

  1. The yoga moves in your home exercise series looks pretty intense! But the lady posing for them has them perfect! Wish I could do that. Do you have something that is a little more easy to start with?

  2. Oh wonderful thank you! One of my missions this year is to get my body back into shape again.

    I gave birth to 2 children in the last 4 years and also gave up smoking nearly 4 months ago… anyway the end result of this is a flabby tummy!

    That is the only part of my body I would consider fat and it needs to go! Then I would like to do some toning, especially on my upper arms.
    I’m going to check out your post on exercises to do from home because I really just don’t have the time to go to gym!

    Out of these exercises listed here, which do you think would be the one that would target that stubborn tummy fat the most?

    1. Hello Lynne and thanks for dropping by. And it is great to know that you have stopped smoking too. And since you mentioned not having time for the gym these exercises will great for you especially the ”boat pose”. But I will suggest that you do the exercises that you can here in the post so as to have a quick and positive result. You might as well go ahead and browse through the site to see other posts that could help you.

  3. Thanks for sharing these home exercises. I don’t do much exercise other than walking the dog, which I try and do at a relatively quick pace, but that isn’t always possible. I’ll never go to the gym, this I know for sure, so having some exercises I can easily do at home, without the need for equipment is very handy.

  4. Great article. I’m currently staying with family in an area that’s no very appealing for outdoor exercise. I try to do a few basics at home, but this gave me some excellent tips to try! The pictures make it so much easier to get the gist of how to do them. thanks 🙂
    Are you able to advise.. will yoga moves help you lose weight? Or really just tone and strengthen?

    1. Yes, yoga can really help you to lose weight but if you really need to lose weight then you have to go a mile further. You may want to look at what you consume and also add some cardio exercises that would increase the rate of weight loss. I think you may want to check this one out.
