Many people strive to keep themselves in good physical shape, so they go in for sports and try to monitor their diet. Today let’s talk about one, at first glance, unusual, but extremely effective exercise. Do it every day before bed and you will forget what body fat is.
How and why the Rabbit exercise
Just note that we practice this exercise quite rarely, in contrast to Europe, where many women practice yoga.
The effectiveness of this movement is no longer in doubt. Its peculiarity lies in the fact that it has a relaxing effect on the deep muscles of the abdomen and back muscles. Consequently, the so-called “clamps” in the body disappear.
There is a very specific reason to train your abdominal muscles along with your back muscles. The device of antagonistic muscles is unusual. When one of these muscles works, blood flows to the other. Obviously, a muscle filled with blood is in maximum working condition.
As for the “Rabbit” exercise, we are not talking about pumping muscles, but about relaxing them. The maximum effect will be achieved if a person learns to relax tight muscles.
The reduction of the fat layer occurs due to the fact that the tissues are better saturated with oxygen, therefore the process of oxidation and destruction of fat cells occurs much faster.
Exercise “Rabbit” allows you to achieve relaxation of pinched muscle mass. Their clamps are due to the daily stressful situations and physical stresses that people face. By introducing the above exercise into your routine, you can be sure that the fat burning process has become faster. Also, this movement has a positive effect on hormonal balance in the human body. But its violation is just often the cause of excess weight.

Correct technique for performing the Rabbit exercise
This movement is best done before going to bed.
This mini-workout is usually done on a hard surface, but you can also do it on the sofa as long as it is not too soft and does not collapse .
Now let’s look at the technique of performing the movement.
We kneel down. Feet shoulder width apart or slightly narrower. We raise our hands up, palms to each other. Next, you should slowly bend your back, round your shoulders, and then gently tilt the body towards your legs. The arms are still straight and should be extended towards the feet.
Now for the important point! Try to completely relax, breathe calmly. You need to be in this position for about 20 seconds. Then you need to take the starting position (on your knees, arms up) and repeat the exercise. Then again.
In total, the movement will not take more than three minutes, which means that you can always find time for it.
