A Japanese method which promises to get rid of belly fat and improve posture using only a towel.
It was designed by the Japanese doctor Toshiki Fukutsudzi a decade ago and its creator says that in addition to achieving good posture, we will be able to reduce centimeters in the waist for just 5 minutes a day.
The reflexologist and specialist in massage affirmed this method can strengthen the core muscles, overcome bad posture, reduce back pain and reduce waist.
Step by step: the Japanese towel method
You can hold the towel with a rubber band to prevent it from unrolling. The ideal of these exercises is you don’t need much. You solve it with what you have at home:
Roll up a hand towel – make sure it’s shaped like a roller, about 10 cm in diameter and about 40 cm long (calculate the length of your shoulders).
Lie face up on a mat. Place the towel right on your lower back, above your sacrum. Align it with the height of your navel.
You will stretch your legs, placing them slightly apart. The heels should be about 20 cm separated and it is important to place the feet facing inwards: the heels should be separated and the toes should touch.
Now stretch your arms above your head. Keep them slightly apart and palms turned towards the floor. Make your little fingers touch each other.
Hold this position 5 seconds
Take a deep breath as your body muscles stretch, your spine re-position itself and your belly hardens. Separate and bring your toes together. Over time, relax the posture.
Do 3 sets in total. And, to stand up, turn gently sideways.
To achieve a better balance, you should do 3 more sets in the opposite direction, in addition to the 15 seconds in this way.
After 30 days, when you do a 5-minute exercise every day, you will see results.
