The stomach muscles are often the ones that need the maximum work in a weight loss program, as there is a tendency for fat cells to accumulate around the abdominal area, giving one an unattractive bulge around the middle area! Here are few excellent exercises to build a trim torso: Side Stretches: Keeping your feet hip width- apart and slightly turned out, lift your arms above your head and clasp your hands together, keeping your shoulders dropped. Now, in a smooth movement, looking straight ahead, drop down on to the left, bending from the waist. Try to get low enough for your arms to be parallel with the floor. Slowly come back to the centre and repeat on the right. Do at least 6- 10 drops each side. Torso Twists: While performing this exercise keep in mind that it is only the waist and upper body that turn- the hips stay absolutely still and facing the front. Begin by standing on your feet hip-width apart, feet slightly turned out and knee bent. Rest your hands lightly on your shoulder, elbows pointing straight out. Feel your back straight and your tail-bone dropping down towards the floor. Turn from the waist to look over your left shoulder. Do 16 turns slowly, feeling the stretch and the repeat to the right. Upper-body Circle: Here comes a complex version of Torso Twists exercise. To begin with stand with your feet hip-width apart and slightly turned out, your arms raised, shoulders down and hands clasped. Drop down to the left until your arms are parallel to the floor, feeling the stretch all the way up your right side. Hold the stretch for a second and then turn slowly so that you are looking down on the floor, keep your body on the same level. This calls for a lot of work from the stomach muscles. Slowly lift back so that you are facing forward again and then straighten up. Build this up to 4-6 times on each side. Roll-Ups: This exercise is a series of movement that build up in difficulty, so start with the first one and only go on to the later ones as your muscles strengthen. • Lie on the floor with your leg stretched out and your arms at your side, palms facing upwards. Pull your stomach muscles back into the floor, tighten your buttock muscles under you at the same time. This will cause your knees to bend slightly and your pelvis to tilt. Repeat 8 times. • In the second stage, repeat the pelvic tilt, this time moving your upper body off the floor, arms outstretched and parallel to the floor. Your head should come up last. Do not raise yourself far enough to make your stomach bulge or your shoulders tense. Repeat 6-8 times. • In the third phase, you begin as before and continue to raise your upper body until you are sitting straight up, arms stretched out in front, head and neck in long line with your spine. • Now drop your head forward onto your chest and roll back down through the spine, holding on a tight to the stomach muscles. Try to feel your back go down, vertebra by vertebra, lengthening out on the floor. Repeat 6 times or till muscle fatigue. Rope Climbing: This is quite a tough exercise for the abdominal muscles, so don't try it until you can do the first four exercises comfortably. Start by lying on your back on the floor. Contract your stomach muscles so that you start to roll up until you are about halfway to a sitting position, knees bent, arms outstretched in front of you. Loosely clench you fists, then raise one arm above your head. Lower this arm again and, as you do so, raise the other one. This movement looks as if you are pulling on a rope. If the stomach muscles start to bulge out or quiver, stop. Repeat for 8 pulls. Crossed Fists: This is a continuation of the previous exercise - and another very tough one! Start by lying on your back on the floor. Contract your stomach muscles so that you start to roll up until you are about halfway to a sitting position, knees bent, arms outstretched in front of you. With your hands in loose fists, cross and re-cross one above the other, raising your arms at the same time until they are reaching straight upwards. Make sure you don't tense your neck or shoulders as you do this. When you reach the top, reverse and come down in four crosses. Repeat the whole sequence 4 times up and down. Scissors: Another tough one for the abdominals! If you're not ready for this, the small of your back will come off the floor - in which case, stop. Remember, the lower the legs, the harder the exercise. Lie flat on the floor, arms by your side, then bend your knees into your chest and stretch your legs outwards. With your fingers resting just behind your ears, lift your head and shoulders off the ground and look up at your legs. Pull your stomach well in and if the exertion is too great raise your legs, crossing them at the ankles, 16 times. NOTE: If your stomach muscles begin to bulge or quiver at any time during these exercises- just stop for you are doing something that is beyond them. Also when lying on the back, the lower your legs are towards the floor the more strain you will be putting on the stomach; lift them higher and the exercise will instantly become easier. When you are performing these exercises- try to think of the stomach muscles providing a natural girdle, keeping the body lifted in a well-held posture. The key to seek prominent results is, consistency. Practicing these exercises, slowly 5-6 times a week will show you considerable results.

Non Stop, Reema Sarin 'All For the Love of Dance' RED, Frazer & Haws Text by Nisha Raj http://bollyfitreema.com/category/press Reema Sarin, Dance Coach and Fitness Therapist,turned her life and career around for the love of dance. From a successful senior marketing professional, Sarin decided to innovate her own form of dance therapy by introducing turbo-charged ‘moves’ to Bollywood dance numbers that are remixed on a high tempo. This 200 beats per minute workout is the fastest in the world. Power dance became the brand Bollyfit, owned by Reema Sarin. This high impact dance challenges the stamina of many fitness gurus. Sarin has over the years added other dance forms like Latin; ballroom; hip-hop; kathak, to her specialized portfolio of expertise. This former Corporate Vice-President also coaches dance styles for the benefit of her clients; for de-stressing; losing weight; flexibility; psychosomatic therapy; and for power and personality enhancement. Reema Sarin takes classes with young children to top corporate persons. She travels for dance shows with her team. She choreographs special wedding dancing. Sarin believes that dancing is the best way to keep fit and disease free. Dancing releases endorphins and Dopamine in the brain, and these happy hormones' remove negativity from the mind, and replaces it with positive self-belief. Resting at her home in New Delhi’s upscale Chanakya Puri neighbourhood, Sarin says,“It has been an interesting journey. I was always passionate about training in various dance forms and fitness regimes, but the real switch came in 2003. I was fuelled with the desire to do something new in the world of show business. With two post-graduate degrees in my pocket and having worked for 12 years in the fashion industry, the United Nations headquarters in New York, and the corporate worlds in San Francisco and Singapore, I was ready to finally do something on my own! That was the time when the Indian music industry was going through a revolution – we saw ‘item numbers’ and Indi-pop songs based on ‘fast beats per minute’ becoming trendy. I collaborated with DJs and remixed popular songs to an increased beat, designed and synchronized workouts to those beats, and my company BOLLYFIT was born! “ The Bollyfit choreography has sequences that are tailor made for hormonalwell being, and self-confidence. These 'Happy Dance' sequences help contain disease from becoming a negative weight on the mind.Studies in America and Europe have shown that certain style of dancing are biologically therapeutic, and research indicates that new pathways open up in the brain towards its 'healing centres'. Be it Bollywood, Disco, Modern Dancing, Jazz, Kathak, Hip-hop, Salsa, Samba, Flamenco or Break-dance – all of them involve a mix of fast (high impact) and moderate (low impact) cardio, muscle toning and fat burn moves. Infact, dancing is not only a calorie burner, but it also releases what we call ‘happy hormones’ or Endorphins into the system, which immediately elevates ones moods and energy. Dancing uses every muscle in the body, relaxes all joints, and gives one a great workout without feeling the burden of exercise. Physically, dancing can provide exercise, improve mobility and muscle coordination, as well as reduce muscle tension. Dancing may strengthen the immune system through muscular action and physiological processes and can even help prevent disease and depression. Emotionally, dance therapy has been found to create and improve self-awareness, self-confidence, and interpersonal interaction. It is an outlet for communicating feelings. Dancing canbe very effective in improving self-esteem and reducing stress. Having trained in multiple dance forms including Hip- hop, Bollywood, Flamenco, Kathak, Latin dances, Tango, Jazz and Modern Dance, my Bollywood Dance Workshops is a fusion of steps and choreography to include dance steps of all of the above. Especially in children, we have found our Bollywood Dance Workshops serve as a huge personality development and confidence building exercise. Hence, as a form of exercise and therapy, dancing can be useful for both physical and emotional aspects of quality of life. What could be a better way to keep happy, reduce stress and shed love handles and the extra pounds than dancing to your favorite 'Bollywood', ‘Disco’, ‘Rock', 'Indipop', ‘Western pop', ‘Techno’ or ‘Reggae’ music atleast once a week. Certain dance methods can lead to healing of serious diseases by making the brain register positive stimuli. Dr David R Hamilton, Biochemist, from Glasgow, Scotland, has given an explanation in neuroscience proving that the mind can heal the body, and how dance rewires the brain circuitry. His books are now very popular in the US and England. Sarin has begun with Bollywood dance techniques and added to them specialization in the different dance forms, Hamilton mentions a ‘silly dance’ called ‘Victory Dance’ David Hamilton, Biochemist, author of seven books of self-healing used to serve as Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, and is a member of the Monroe County Medical Society and the American Gastroenterological Association. Hamilton now spends his time writing, and travelling with his ‘Mind over Body’ lectures and techniques. Hamilton avers, “A great way to distract that I recommend to people in a variety of different situations is ‘victory dancing’. It’s where you do a silly dance (to the best of your movement ability) that makes you smile and laugh. What’s happening is that instead of brain resources going towards the amygdala they move to the prefrontal cortex and other happy brain centres instead. This generates positive feelings and a greater sense that you can be in control of things. In time, with plenty of ‘dance’ practice, the brain will rewire and resources will ‘learn’ to go to ‘happy’ brain centres instead of towards the amygdala [one source of psychosomatic disease].” Reema Sarin believes in a fitness routine that can be enjoyed, and that is simple yet energetic. She has managed to make her passion into a successful career. She does a number of dance classes for children from economically challenged backgrounds, as her Corporate Social Responsibility to society. Bollywood songs are a favourite with most people, including consulate communities, and Sarin makes the bodies move into wellbeing and strength. Reema Sarin has taken dance to another level altogether.
