Monsoon Fitness Workouts: Indoor Exercises to Beat the Rain

Now, let's move on to the front of your core - the most important organ of the body that expands when you don’t want it to bloat, the stomach. Here are a few suggestions to shape up: Crunches, reverse crunches, Turkish get ups, Dumbbell windmill, plank holds, side bends with dumbbell and v-sit ups.

You might have heard the phrase 'engage your core' on several occassions, in fitness magazines and from any good trainer. This essentially means that when you perform any exercise you need to tense your core - front and back - into a steady position that follows your breathing. For example, when you lift a weight, you must tighten your core and use that tightness to push the weight away from your body. While you do this, you need to exhale. On the other hand, when you drop the weight once the pushing is complete, to resume the starting position, you need to inhale.

This engagement is crucial and will hold you in good stead even if you have no equipment to workout with at home. Most boxers, for instance, rely on the good old bodyweight exercises like push ups, squats, and sit ups for a full body workout.
