4 Japanese Exercises to Live Longer Than Other People
How to lose belly fat, become healthy, and get rid of stress for good? Here are 4 simple but effective Japanese exercises that will make you strong and help you reduce pain and stress.
Japanese engineer and Aikido instructor Katsuzo Nishi was very weak as a boy, and doctors told his parents he would die before he turned 20. But he didn’t give up and instead found ways to improve his health. When he was 44, he wrote a book with his unique system for strengthening the body. Today we invite you to do this quick workout together with us. So put your sportswear on and let’s begin!
HOW TO DO THE EXERCISES:
Part 1. Start by lying on a hard surface. Place your arms on the floor straight above your head and pull your toes toward you so that your feet are perpendicular to the ground. Then flex your left foot even more towards you while stretching your left arm out as much as you can. Do the same thing with your right foot and arm.
Part 2. Clasp your hands together and place them under the back of your neck. Keep your legs together but spread your feet slightly out to the sides. Move your feet left and right so that your whole body wiggles like a swimming fish.
The initial position is again lying on a hard flat surface, this time with a fitness roller under your neck. Raise your arms and legs toward the ceiling with your knees and elbows slightly bent. Try to relax as much as possible.
Part 1. Lie on a hard and flat surface with a fitness roller supporting your neck. This one is also a complex two-parter. Bend your knees out to the sides and bring the soles of your feet together. Keep this up for 30 seconds.
Part 2. Keep your soles pressed together and pulled toward your groin throughout this second part. Press the fingertips of both hands together over your chest. Your fingers should be pointed towards the ceiling. Then press the entire length of the fingers together. Go back to just the fingertips. Do 10 of these. Now with your just fingertips touching, rotate your wrists back and forth. Your fingers will point towards the ceiling and then towards your chest.
Sit up straight with your legs crossed and your hands clasped together. Shrug your shoulders up and down without changing the position of your hands. Slowly bend your head to the side, bringing your ear towards your shoulder. Do this on the left and right sides.
Most important of all, Katsuzo Nishi strongly believed that everything you need to stay healthy is already within you. Just fight your laziness, use the priceless resources you have, and you’ll be healthy, strong and beautiful at any age!
