What I learned doing morning exercise for 20 days.

Photo by Boxed Water Is Better on Unsplash

From the start of March I have been engaging into exercise.

Being an absolute beginner I was overwhelmed with tones of body parts to target and that has proved challenging for me. I have settled on cardio and targeting the lower abdomen.

I wasn’t lifting weights of any kind.

The exercises I have been performing consisted of:

  • Flutter Kicks — this is the kind where you lay down with your back and swing your legs back and forth.
  • Russia twists- this is the kind where you move your lower abdomen while seated with your legs up swinging your hands sideways.
