Know More: 5 exercises to get rid of that flabby chin

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

A double chin is never flattering, and it shows in all pictures! Aakriti Patni has five quick exercises to help you get rid of that flabby double chin

Have you ever looked in the mirror and admired your accentuated jaw, your full lips and high cheek bones and sighed in admiration of yourself? (You don’t need to be embarrassed, we’ve all done it.) But, we’re sure that admiring yourself in the mirror went downhill as you noticed your double chin. Whatever our body structure, we all struggle with the hint of a double chin, and so, we bring you five quick exercises to get rid of the excess weight hiding underneath your chin.

Lifting heads
Like performing an ab workout for your neck muscles, this exercise involves neck crunches. Lying face up on the bed, hang your head off the edge of the bed. Keeping your shoulders fixed, slowly lift up your head, bringing your chin as close to your chest as possible. Hold for 10 seconds and return to the original position. Perform at least 6-8 times.

Sticking out your tongue
An easy exercise to perform, this is quite a bit of fun! Sit in a relaxed position and open your mouth as wide as you can and stick out your tongue as far as possible in an upward direction. You will feel the stretch in your neck and chin. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat at least 10 times.

Pushing hands
This one is slightly complicated. Place your thumb just below your ear where it meets your jawline, and your index finger of the same hand in the same position on the opposite side. This will essentially allow you to cup your jaw in a tight hold. Push against your hand in a forward moving direction pressing the extra flesh. Hold for 30 seconds and perform at least five times.

Reaching for the stars
A fun one, all you have to do is assume a standing position and tilt your head back, so that you are staring at the ceiling (or the stars, if you will!). Pucker your lips, almost as if you are kissing the ceiling, and try to reach the stars with your puckered motions. You feel a tightening stretch throughout your chin and neck.

Sit-ups for your tongue
Tilt your head back so that you are looking at the ceiling. Press your tongue on to the roof of your mouth. Holding your tongue in this position, bring your chin as close to your chest as possible without moving your shoulders. You will feel the stretch in your neck and chin. Hold for 10 seconds before releasing and repeating.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
