The best indoor workouts

Posted on by

first_imgIndoor workouts are perfect for monsoons and for those still suffering in the summer heat. Start with simple stretches.1. Jumpstart your day. Skipping for 15 minutes can burn up to 700 calories. It strengthens your joints and bones and works on your abs, back, legs and calf muscles. Start with 3 mins and work your way up slowly. 2. Step aerobics. All you need is a step bench, preferably with adjustable height, to increase the intensity of your workout. Turn on the music and watch your lower body muscles get taut and your metabolism and stamina increase. 3. Push-up challenge. Make sure that you do 80 to 200 push-ups with rest in between. If you’re not strong enough to do standard ones, do some kneeling push-ups or those on a chair. 4. Pump weights. Holding dumbbells, do a few sets of squats, bicep curls, lunges, tricep curls, push-ups, plies and overhead presses (look up old issues of prevention for details). A 25 to 30-minute workout is great to strengthen your arms and legs, tone your butt and shape your tummy. 5. Balancing act. With a stability ball you can do crunches, push-ups, abdominal rolls, limb extensions and more. It helps you work on every part of your body. 6. Exer-Bands. Perfect for indoor workouts (see Walk off Weight 3x Faster). Use them to tone your entire body. A 30-minute workout can burn up to 700 calories. 7. Calm and composed. Yoga can make you feel great. A 45-minute session can help you burn up to 700 calories. Try and remain active through the day and play with your children when you can.

Ervine named in Zimbabwe’s World Cup squad

Posted on by

first_imgAllrounder Sean Ervine was back in Zimbabwe colours for the first time in seven years when he was named in its 15-man squad on Wednesday for next month’s cricket World Cup.The 28-year-old Ervine this week quit English County Championship side Hampshire to resume his international career with Zimbabwe.Ervine played five tests and 42 one-day internationals from 2001 until 2004, when he was involved in a players’ dispute with national cricket administrators and left the country.”It has been a long negotiation process between both parties, but it came to a head after the completion of the recent Bangladesh tour (which Zimbabwe lost 3-1),” head selector Alistair Campbell said today.”We look forward to big performances from him, not just at the World Cup, but in the season ahead.”Zimbabwe picked four specialist spinners in Ray Price, Prosper Utseya, Graeme Cremer and Greg Lamb, and will be banking on them during the World Cup in the spin-friendly conditions on the subcontinent.”We’ve got world-class slow bowlers in the side, if we put enough runs on the board we will be competitive,” Campbell said.Leading batsman Hamilton Masakadza, who did not even make the provisional squad of 30, missed out, while his younger brother, opening bowler Shingi Masakadza, and wicketkeeper batsman Regis Chakabva made the squad.The squad includes six who were at the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean: Captain Elton Chigumbura, Brendan Taylor, Sean Williams, Prosper Utseya, Chris Mpofu and Ed Rainsford.Zimbabwe opens against defending champion Australia on Feb 21 at Ahmedabad, and was in Group A beside New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Canada and Kenya.advertisementSquad: Elton Chigumbura (c), Regis Chakabva, Charles Coventry, Graeme Cremer, Craig Ervine, Sean Ervine, Greg Lamb, Shingi Masakadza, Chris Mpofu, Ray Price, Ed Rainsford, Tatenda Taibu, Brendan Taylor, Prosper Utseya, Sean Williams.last_img read more
