Try doing it in 10’s
Doing just ten 10 push-ups or 10 sit-ups every day is better than doing nothing, even if they aren’t consecutive. Eventuality the 10’s will be to easy and you will find yourself doing more over time.
Taking a walk for 20 minutes a day
Yes- it Winter, but there’s still no excuses to get some walking even if it is to the shop and back. Use your legs you were given and get moving walking is the easiest exercise, It’s easy to fit it into your daily schedule, and won’t have you gasping for breath. Try just a quick 20 minute walk at least everyday. This is the perfect reason to get a dog.
Stand up at least every hour
Move your butt off the coach at least every hour, make a conscious effort to get up a go to the toilet, make a round of tea, if you at work, go out for lunch, take the stairs and not the stairs. Do anything to get up off that chair.
You can stay-in and still get a workout
Yup, you read that right. There are many accessible exercises and home workouts you can do from your living room, that won’t require you to make a trip to the gym.
Switch off- get some sleep
It’s not all about exercise – our daily lives have a real impact on our health and wellbeing. Getting enough sleep is crucial to being fit. Technology nowadays doesn’t help either, switch off all the devices you own an hour before you sleep and you will find you sleep better.
Don’t worry about how long your work out lasts
Any exercise is great and the most important thing when first starting out is to just get moving in the first place. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t do a full hour, or if you couldn’t run for as long as you wanted. The fact is, you’re doing something, and that’s what that matters.
Spend time in bed
Let’s face it; some forms of exercise can be fun and sex is one of them. Research shows that sexual activity can be just as effective at burning energy as moderate intensity exercises. Women can burn up 90 calories during a sex session, which is just under half the amount you would burn in a 30-minute jog. We know which one we’d rather pick…
Work out during the adverts
Lazy men like to watch TV. So why not combine it with exercise, and time your mini-work outs to be just as long as the ads. If you do a five minute circuit of lunges, burpees, jogging, skipping and squats during the ads, then you can reward yourself by lounging on the coach and finding out if South Africa really has talent.
