5 exercises to fight diabetes
Hardening of standing abdominals
This exercise to achieve standing strengthens the muscles that help your back to bear the extra weight in your belly.
Stand with your feet in line with your hips.
By keeping your neck, shoulders and arms relaxed, tuck the muscles of your abdomen and tighten them. Imagine a belt that tightens around your abdomen.
Hold for 60 seconds with normal breathing. Do this three times.

The gluteus muscle
Strengthens the humble but powerful muscles that form your buttocks and are involved in almost every move you make.
Stand straight, feet aligned with the hips, arms on the sides and your shoulders relaxed.
Tighten as much as possible the muscles of your buttocks, tuck your stomach and move your right leg about five centimeters behind you by lifting your foot off the ground.
Hold for 10 seconds, then change leg. Do at least three repetitions with each leg.
Swimming in the dry
Strengthens the lower back and muscles along the lower part of the column to improve posture and prevent pain in the lower back.
Lie on your stomach on a mat with your arms and legs aligned, as if you were Superman.
Keep your neck relaxed, head to the ground, stretch your abdominal muscles, then lift your right arm and your left leg for a second.
Slowly bring the two limbs down and repeat the exercise with the other arm and the other leg. Continue to “swim” well for 30 seconds, three times with each leg.
As a normal crunch, except that this exercise uses the abdominal muscles. It is less intense and does not require lifting the head off the ground, which could force your neck.
Lie on your back, knees bent, feet flat on the floor, hands behind your head and elbows on the sides.
Inspire and contract your abdominal muscles so that your lower back touches the ground, then lift your right foot about three inches off the ground.
Hold for four seconds, then exhale while lowering the foot to the floor for another four seconds. Repeat with the left leg.
The Sweet Hundred
Strengthens the muscles of the trunk, the abdominal muscles, the lower back muscles and those attached to the column.
Lie on your back, your legs pulled together and your knees at a 90-degree angle. Breathe in and lift your arms toward the ceiling without lifting your shoulders off the floor.
When exhaling, relax your torso so as to lift the upper portion of your shoulders. Simultaneously, lower your arms and hold them at your hips.
Tighten your abdominals and begin to lift and lower your arms as if you were using an air pump. Repeat this pumping movement 100 times.
