Question
My height is 5 feet and my weight is 58 kgs. Due to my crazy schedule i am unable to exercise. However I want to do some exercises at home. So is skipping a good exercise. Since I had a C-Sec delivery 2 years back, is it a good idea to do skipping to loose weight and tone the body.

Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

Yes, Skipping is a good exercise.

Since you had C-Sec 2 years back, any problem due to skipping is not expected.

You should include Aerobics also in your workout schedule. It will help you burn fat of abdomen also.

Jogging, cycling, exercise on stepper can also be performed at home.

If you have further query, I shall be glad to reply.

With good wishes,

Hi,

Welcome again,

Initially you should do it for 5 minutes, which can be slowly increased to 10 minutes.

As you require about 30 minutes workout, please add other exercises like yoga to it, so that you can tone other muscles of your body also.

If you have further query, I shall be glad to reply.

With good wishes,
