Single-leg Deadlift

One of the best exercises that strengthen and improve the flexibility of the hamstrings is a Single-leg Deadlift. Along with that, this exercise targets your glutes and core too. It also boosts balance between legs, which helps in reducing the risk of injury.

How to do it:

  • Grab a pair of dumbbells and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Slightly bend your knees.
  • Now lift a leg off the floor such that it is parallel to the floor.
  • Bend forward at your hips, and lower your torso parallel to the floor.
  • Pause.
  • Now squeeze your glutes to push your hips forward and bring your torso back to the starting position.
  • Do 5 reps, and then repeat with the other leg.

Side Planks

This exercise is best for tightening your abs and reducing the waistline. It burns stomach fat faster as it works up your deep abdominal muscles like obliques and transverse abdominis etc.

How to do it:

  • Lie on either of your side with your knees straight.
  • Prop your upper body up on the selected side elbow and forearm.
  • Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders.
  • Hold this position for 30 seconds.
  • Repeat with the other side.

  • Bend your knees to lower down your body, until your thighs are parallel to the floor.
  • Either keep your hands on your gluteus minimus or bring your arms overhead, with shoulders down and back.
  • Pause.
  • Hold the position for at least 30 seconds.
  • Now slowly bring your body back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for 10 times
