How to best enjoy the summer and still strengthen those difficult areas: stomach, bottom and thighs.

It is summer time! You have a beautiful day ahead and would like to spend your time in the park. What about your planned gym class? You would have to skip it again... but not your exercises! As a good physical fitness is very important for body and soul, our nutrition expert speaker, Dr Thomas Kurscheid, proposes some exercises you could do outside.

Exercise 1: The static lunge

This exercise is good for strengthening the buttocks and front of the thighs. Begin by standing with the right foot forward and the left foot back about 1 meter.
Beginners: Bend the front knee until the back knee rests on the ground.
Intermediates: Keep your weight on the front leg.

Exercise 2: The abdominal crunch

This exercise is a great workout for the abdominal muscles. Lay on your back and raise your left leg. Place your left hand behind your head to help stabilise/hold it up. This will help keep your back rounded and pressed against the ground.
Stretch out your right arm and then move your stretched arm and leg towards your abdomen. Repeat using your right leg and left arm.
Beginners: During the first two weeks, repeat as many times as you can. Stop when you begin to feel a burning sensation in your muscles.
Advanced: Repeat as many times as you can until you really "feel the burn" in your abdominal muscles.

Tips from Dr Kurscheid

Beginners should keep to the easiest variations for the first two weeks before moving on to the next level.

Advanced should complete the most difficult variations of these exercises 12 times or until they can’t do it anymore. For an even bigger effect, they should immediately follow up with the beginner’s version until no more are possible.

To support muscle development, take in 10 grams of protein in the first two hours after training, for instance, 200 ml milk, 100 g of yoghurt or NUTRILITE All Plant Protein.
