Every exercise regime should contain a warm up period, cardio exercise, strength exercise and finally a cooling off period. This can be done for as short as 7minutes or can be done for longer to get better results.
We here are taking a 20 minute exercise regime so that you are able to burn off that extra flab that has deposited with time. So to do this we need to divide the time rightly.
4 Minutes Warm Up
A 4 minute warm up will do, for this you can choose to dance for your favourite dance number. Make sure that you keep dancing continuously without letting your heart rate to drop. You can even begin with a slow number and move towards a fast one.
4 Minutes Cardio Exercise

Go for lunges and squats for next four minutes. You can take a 10 second break in between each set. If you are not comfortable doing them, lie down on the mat and do reverse crunches or different leg lifts. Minimum four sets with or without breaks. Mountain climbing also works well as a cardio. Changes whenever you feel bored of a regime.
7 Minutes Strength Training

Plank works best for reducing your tummy, try to do plank for at least 2 to 3 minutes. It will be difficult in the beginning but with practice you can remain in plank position for more than 3 minutes. Push ups 20 counts with a momentous break for another 3 minutes would do wonders to those extra fats deposited on your underarms.
5 Minutes Cool Off
Jog, jog and jog for the remaining 5 minutes, go around in your room, or just in the place where you stand. If you feel tired jump, do the skipping motion, alternate jump, hop and so on. Remember, these last 5 minutes are your fat burning session so DO NOT GIVE UP.
Try this fun filled 20 minutes exercise and see the change in you in the next couple of weeks. All the best.
