All of us have that one pair of jeans in our wardrobe that mocks us every time we try it on before heading out for a party or the movies. It hangs in there taunting us for the extra flab on our body – the ‘muffin top’ – as some would address it as.

This regime will not only help you get into that particular pair of jeans but will also save you a lot of time which you can utilize to do your other activities.
10-Minute Workout to Lose Weight
The following workout regime by fitness trainer and cyclist Kym Perfetto is a step-by-step guideline that you need to perform in a chronological manner in order to avail the most benefits out of it. Starmark Fitness Studio, a leading gym in Kolkata, has even approved of this new-age workout session.
Just like any other workout, this regime also requires you to get warmed up beforehand. It basically comprises of the following:
To do this, you need to lie on the floor with your face down and palms flat on the floor under your shoulders. You then need to inhale to press your palms and lift your chest from the floor while pulling your shoulders back.
Make sure your head is extended towards the ceiling. After this, slowly exhale and lower your body to the starting position. Repeat this five times.
As evident by its name, you can figure out that this is an extended and detailed form of Cobra. For this, you have to lie face down on the floor while keeping your palms flat on the floor. Please ensure that your forehead rests on the fingers.
Relax and inhale to lift your chest. Keep extending your arms backward next to your hips, to make your fingertips reach the end of your toes. Exhale while lowering your chest and return to your starting position.
Once you are limber and ready from the warm-up, move on to the three-stage process of our 10-minute workout plan to fit into your jeans.
After your warm-up, your routine of the 10-minute workout to lose weight officially begins with stage one. This stage is composed of the following:
For bicycle crunches, you have to lie face up on the ground with your hands clasped behind your head. Keep your elbows pointed out to the sides. Proceed to lift up your shoulders and legs to hover off the ground and drive your right leg towards your chest and rotating torso to drive your left elbow to your knee.
Once you complete, switch up by extending your right leg and driving your left knee and right elbow towards the center. Keep on alternating between them. Repeat this 20 times, counting each side as one repetition.
The next part in the first stage of the 10-minute workout to lose weight consist of the plank bird-dog. To perform this, you have to start in a high plank position. Make sure you keep your core tight and continue to maintain the plank position as you lift your straight arm to extend it forward. Lift your left leg in a straight position as high as possible in the same manner.
After this, come back to your starting position and repeat on the other side, lifting your left arm and right feet. Similar to bicycle crunches, you also need to repeat this 20 times, counting each side as one single repetition.
Once you are done, repeat both bicycle crunches and plank bird-dog one more time.
The second stage of our 10-minute workout to lose weight has been built in a manner that would complement the rhythm of the first stage. It consists of the following:
Side Plank Toe-Touches
To do a side plank toe-touch, you have to start on a right side plank while resting on your elbow with the fingertips pointed forward. Keep your arm extended overhead so that your biceps lies next to your ear.
You then have to bring both your left feet and left hand forward in a straight position so that you could touch your toes with your fingertips in front of your belly button. After returning to the starting position, complete 20 repetitions on each side.
The next part of the second stage of your 10-minute workout to shed weight involves the mountain climbers. For completing it, you have to first of all start in a high plank position. You then need to drive your right knee towards your chest. Proceed to return to high plank and draw your left knee towards your chest.
Please ensure that you continue to alternate at a relatively fast pace (not high speed though since it might injure you) while keeping your core tight and hips in line. As with every other exercise mentioned so far, you need to repeat this 20 times as well, counting each side as one repetition.
Similar to stage one, the two exercises of this stage – side plank toe-touches and mountain climbers – should also be repeated.
Keeping in mind the flow of the first two stages, the third and final stage also consists of two parts. They are as follows:
Plank twist is the first part of the final stage of your 10-minute workout to fit into your jeans. This exercise requires you to start on an elbow plank. Slowly proceed to rotate your hips to the right, lowering it until your right hip taps the floor.
Next, you have to lift your hips back to the center. Follow this up by rotating your hips to the left, lowering it until your left hip taps the floor. This is considered one single repetition. Continue repeating it 20 times.
The final part of the final stage of your 10-minute workout to lose weight is the washer crunches. To perform this, you have to lie face up on the floor, with your knees bent and legs flat on the ground. Your hands should be clasped behind your head. Elbows must be pointed out to the sides.
Gradually, lift your shoulders from the ground and squeeze the right obliques to curve torso to the right, while drawing your right elbow towards your right leg. Follow this up by squeezing your left obliques to curve torso to the left while drawing your left elbow towards your left feet. This is counted as one repetition. Do this for 20 times.
Repeat plank twist and washer crunches just as you have repeated the exercises of stage one and stage two.
So, for all you busy-bees who don’t have time to hit a nearby multi-gym but are struggling to fit into your favorite pair of jeans, we hope this 10-minute workout to lose weight will help you shed weight, save time and gain confidence.
