tighten tummy and butt-Help.
becsevie posted:
I am trying very hard to become more fit and I really want to drop a few more pounds. I am 28, 5'6 and weight about 130. I'd really like to get down to 125. I am eating better, which has helped alot... but I was wondering if there was anything I can do to tighten my tummy and tighten and lift mybutt without having to go to the gym? I do not have the money for a membership or else thats where i'd go! I have been going on pretty long walks up and down hills. (i live in a hilly new hampshire town), but thats about it. Can walking do that. I just need some extra help with getting to my goal, as I've never really been into fitness until now.
Thanks for all your opinions.

Here are some exercises that you can do at home. sit-ups and bilateral leg raises are great for tightening your abs and you can do quadruped alternate leg raises to tighten your butt muscles. an alternative for tightening your butt is stair climbing.

Honestly, running and jogging are going to be the best for you. But it's difficult to run outside when the weathers bad and rainy, which I'm sure happens a lot in NH. I know you said money was an issue, but a treadmill seems like your best option. Here's a site with some coupons to save you money though!
Good luck!
