Although there are only 24 hours in a day, that doesn’t seem to be enough time for many people who have trouble finding time within their busy schedules for exercise and fitness. Fortunately, one does not need to exercise for long periods of time to get in shape. Here are five ways you can reach your fitness and health goals while on the go.
Change Up Your Commute
Consider riding a bike or taking the bus or subway to work to add some exercise into your daily routine. If you must use your car to get to work, start parking in the back of the parking lot and walking instead.
Use Your Work Breaks
While 15 minutes may not seem like an ample amount of time to do anything other than grab a snack, consider using one or all of your breaks to go for a jog or walk. These short exercise and fitness sessions will do wonders for your cardiovascular health and metabolism.
Stretching is an excellent way to alleviate muscle fatigue, improve circulation, and burn a few calories. Raise your arms over your head and reach as high as you can for 30 seconds and then reach downwards to touch your toes for 30 seconds as well. Next, twist from side to side a few times to loosen up your muscles and generate some extra energy.
Use the Stairs
You don’t need to own a treadmill in order to work those muscles and get your heart rate up. Use the stairs at your home or work to get the same kind of exercise and fitness workout you would normally get at the gym, without having to pay any membership fees. Run up and down the stairs for 10 to 15 minutes to get your heart racing. You can even use the stairs to do some lunges to work out the muscles in your lower body.
Use the Wall
Regardless of where you are, you can use the walls to strengthen your arms and upper body muscles. Use the wall to push up against, just like you would use the floor for pushups. Consider increasing the angle between your body and the floor to increase resistance and build up upper body strength. Challenge yourself even more by using just one arm to push up with. If you are doing this at work, you may want to change into a t-shirt first.
