Your workouts don’t have to be long and sweaty to work for you. Here are 7 ways to get an all-body workout in – in 10 minutes or less.
Sooo… How are you doing with your New Year’s resolution to get to the gym and get fit? I know. You’re not alone. It’s hard, when there’s work, school, kids, vacuuming, laundry, grocery shopping, yada yada yada. We all know though, the excuses aren’t going away. Ever. They’ll just get replaced by a different excuse. So, let’s just do our best to work around them. Sometimes, you’ve gotta get creative about how to squeeze in your exercise.
Did you know that even short bursts of exercise (a 5-10 minute walk around the parking lot, a jog up and down 3 flights of stairs, or even just a few jumping jacks here and there) can actually make a difference? The goal for all adults is to get at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week. If you’re hoping to lose weight, you’ll probably need to do a bit more than that, but think about it – 150 minutes is 30 minutes 5 days each week. Totally do-able, if you have a plan. Set a realistic goal to get to the gym or just do a few miles of walking, running, hiking or biking as many times each week as possible, but when you’re really pressed, try one (or three) of these quick workouts at home – or at the office.
You’ll be so glad you did it in a few weeks when it starts to feel like spring. Click on each photo for more info or a video.
