Vogues come and go. In recent years there has been a fresh outcrop of rigorous training exercises that have dominated the market — Pilates, Spinning, CrossFit, you name it. However, there are a couple of very basic and simple exercises which have been around for a long time and are likely to stay for decades and centuries to come. They are called Body Sculpting Workouts.
The relative simplicity of these exercises might have one fooled into believing that they don’t work. That, and the fact that they don’t promise quick abs within two weeks. But carried over a longer period, these are deceptively effective, and that’s why they’re still around. If you go steady these are great body sculpting techniques. Body sculpting workouts include the kind of exercises wherein you use your own body weight to put pressure on your muscles, in order to achieve a toned body.
Simple Body Sculpting Workouts for Beginners
Here are a couple of body sculpting workouts we’ve rounded up which are really simple, either needing no instruments at all or just some simple weights, but are still effective.
#1. Inchworm – Upper body workout
This is an effective exercise which begins with you standing upright. Bend down, knees straight, until your hips are upwards and your palms flat on the ground. Then start inching your body forwards as you walk your hands ahead of yourself, thus slowly lowering your body onto the floor. Eventually, you should be in a full Plank position, wherein the pressure lies on your core and spine. Then reverse the movement backward until you’re standing upright again. Then repeat for 6 to 8 reps.
It basically works out your arm, chest, upper back, lower back, and abs. Hence , considered as good exercise for your upper body.
#2. Sumo Squat Thrust- Legs and Upper body workout
This is similar to Inchworm. However, your starting position should be the sumo squat, which means you should be crouched down, feet hip-width apart, toes angled out, hands on the flow before you, chest leaning forward. Then you should move your hands forward on the floor, while simultaneously moving your feet backward till you’ve achieved the plank position with the focus on the core. Reverse. And repeat 8 to 10 times.
It works out your cardiovascular system, legs, and upper body. It is also referred to as burpee.
#3. Triangle Pushup – Upper Body workout
This should start with the Plank position, however, your thumbs and forefingers should touch in a triangle formation, arms coming together towards the palm. Then you need to perform the pushup with this arm position. Slowly bend the elbows down, flaring out towards the sides, and lower yourself down till your chest almost touches the floor. Do not let your lower back sag or your hips from jutting up. Push yourself back up and repeat 10 to 12 times.
It is a good exercise for the whole of your upper body. It is especially a very good exercise to grow your triceps.
#4. Sprinter Pull – Full body workout
This begins with the forward lunge position, your back straight, one knee parallel to the floor and the other knee bent down almost touching the floor. Your elbows should also be bent in a running position. You should push the right knee forward while pushing yourself onto your left toes, balancing in that position. Meanwhile, pull one elbow back while pushing the other forward and hold the position for a few seconds. Repeat this 10 to 12 times.
It is a full body exercise that can be done without any equipment.
#5. Side Plank with Hip Dip – Waist and belly workout
Start with a natural side plank, forearm on the mat and your elbow below your body, then raise yourself up by the elbows until your upper arms are straight. Now drop the right hip closer towards the mat, just a few inches from the floor. Reverse. Then repeat 6 to 8 times.
Get a perfect waist and burn your belly fat with this simple exercise.
#6. Reverse Jack Sumo Squat – Thighs and glutes workout
Your feet should be shoulder width apart, maybe a little more so than that. The toes should be angled outwards. Bend the knees low, pressure on the core, lower into a sumo squat with the hands before your chest, palms facing each other. Then jump, your feet squeezed together, rising up by the toes until your thumbs meet. Reverse and lower into the sumo position again. Repeat 10 to 12 times.
This sculpting for beginners mainly focuses on your inner thighs and glutes.
#7. Cossack Squat – Lower body workout
Stand with your feet hip-width apart, and your arms along your sides. Move to the side with your left foot, flex the knee until it’s bent and your right leg should be entirely straight. Lower yourself until you’re as low as you can go, and then transfer the weight of your body to the right heel. Lift your left toes slightly upward and then bring your hands up to yourself. Repeat on either side 10 to 12 times.
It’s a workout for lower body that builds strength and endurance as well as improves the endurance and flexibility.
