Hi, I'm Amy Newman, fitness expert, creator of The Perfect 10 Workout, and I'm going to show you some abdominal exercises you can do if you are overweight. First, we want to find out where we place our feet. Under our hips are where we want to put them. Feet nice and sturdy, toes wide apart and knees slightly bent. Tuck your tailbone under and have your pelvis kind of lifted, squeeze your abs in. And then slowly, bring your arms up and around taking in a deep breath. Bring one knee up as your elbows come down squeezing your abdominals.Then, lift up, inhale and exhale, go to the other knee. Inhale up, exhale. Inhale, stretch, exhale, round out, bend the bottom leg. Keep it a little bit soft even when you are standing. Knees bent exhale, then up. Elbows to knee. Exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale. Then, you can get a wide variety by bringing your arms out open up your legs maybe just a little bit more and bring the opposite hand towards your foot. Now, if you don't want to bend over very far you don't have to. You'll still get a nice twist. Exhale, inhale. Other side arms wide apart, exhale and come up inhale. Keep your knees soft and bent. Exhale to the other side and inhale. Exhale other side, inhale keeping your face looking straight ahead. Then bring your hands behind your head and what you want to do is squeeze your waist exhaling bringing your elbow towards one side. Look straight up not yanking on your head. Fingers are very light. Behind your head, squeeze the waist, exhale. Inhale, straight up, exhale to the side. Inhale straight up, exhale other side. Inhale, straight up. And those are some abdominal exercises you can do if you are overweight.
