Do you dread the thought of exercising as much as I do? My idea of exercise is getting up from my computer to get my next meal or to watch a little TV. Exercising is considered one the best ways to burn off excess body fat so there must be an alternative way to exercise than just hitting the gym for an hour or doing cardio for 20-30 minute sessions.
Guess What? There is! There’s a simple way for even us lazy creatures to get the health and fat burning benefits from exercise. The secret lies is knowing several easy but potent exercises that you can quickly do anywhere and at anytime without going to the gym or needing any other special exercise equipment.
It really is possible to get fit and into great shape by exercising in lazy 30-second intervals throughout the day. With this lazy method, you won’t even feel like you’re doing any exercise, but at the end of the day you will definitely feel the results and after a few weeks, you will even start to see the results.
The best times to do your super mini workouts are during commercials, when you get yourself a cup of coffee, tea, water, while brushing your teeth, during work breaks and when you are generally feeling a little tired or bored. It’s a great way to stimulate your body and to give yourself an extra energy burst. You also don’t have to strain yourself or break a sweat.
You can easily rotate the exercises you do. Any exercise that uses your own bodyweight are excellent choices. Here is a small list of exercises that you can start doing: pushups, situps, squats, jumping jacks, chinups, broad jumps or hopping with both legs. My favorite two are squats and pushups. Squatting daily keeps gives me lots of running stamina and speed and gives me a toned lower body and the pushups give me a sculpted and toned upper body.
If you enjoy watching TV at night like most people, imagine how fit you could get by doing 30-second intervals during all the commercial breaks. You will burn more calories, increase your energy levels and keep your metabolism sky-high which is important when trying to lose weight or dieting. It’s also the perfect compliment to any dieting program you may choose to follow.
