It is the easiest exercise for beginners that I ever did. It felt boring in the start but I did for a week 10 times without complaining. It had a positive impact on my mental stability and on my physique.

Let me tell you that if you are struggling with your stubborn belly fat, Kapaalbhaati is for you! It melts away the fat from your stomach in 20 days if you do it regularly. Okay, now you don’t have to put your hopes too high, burning that fat takes time and if you have a waist of 40 inches, you can’t expect it to become 24 in a matter of 20 days.

Jumping jacks is a fun exercises for beginners. Turn on some great music that you love and start jumping until you feel tired but if you want to know how many are to be done to stay fit, then it is 50 at a time. Okay! Okay! Don’t roll your eyes! Start with 20. Okay, 10! Is it fine?
Burpees is a painful excercise for beginners, and for me even today doing three sets of 12 is a pain! However, you can do it if you do 5 reps for two 2 weeks.
For beginners, I would suggest, 1 set of 10 and that’s it! Sometimes, I still do 1 set! C’mon my lazy ass sometimes takes a toll over me!

It is such a wonderful exercise for your lower belly. Lie down and raise your leg upwards and repeat till your stomach comes out and slaps you! Hahaha! Believe me, as a beginner, I could not exercise for a bit but now I work out for 30 minutes at home.

Plank is a pretty good exercise even for a beginner and Oh! what joy it gives when you are able to hold it for 3 minutes! It is a competition with yourself. Yesterday you were able to hold it for 20 seconds? Today, try and hold it for 25 seconds.
