With your busy home and work routine, you hardly get time to do exercise. What if you can exercise without impeding any of that? In this article at Shape, Marianne Magno shares ten tips to make the workout a part of your work routine.
Workout Within the Work Schedule
A day has twenty-four hours, but is not that too less to fit in all your responsibilities? Here are some tips to make the workout a part of your work routine:
Come Home from Office Walking: Instead of taking the subway, why not walk from office? You might reach home earlier during peak traffic hours. You can also bike to work or get off the bus a few stops earlier to go to the office.
Get Up Early: You must start the day early to get a better grasp of your work routine. Strike off the workout session and not worry about it until the next morning.
Go for a Post-Lunch Walk: Instead of eating lunch at your desk, go for a walk soon after. That one-hour lunch break is part of your work routine, so use it wisely.
Exercise at Your Desk: Have a rushed delivery? Sit on a fitness ball to strengthen your core muscles. Use dumbbells to do some in-house curls, overhead presses, and abdomen exercises sitting at your office desk.
Jog Along with Your Kid: Purchase a jogging stroller so that you can workout without paying for a sitter. Strap your kid to the chest to add some fun weight.
Finish Cardio on the Treadmill: Need to go a bit early to work? Finish your cardio exercises while walking on the treadmill. Invest one minute each toning shoulders, biceps, triceps, glutes, and sides.
Set Exercise Dates: Hit the gym together with your friends or partner. Working out together will improve your health rather than gulping discounts at happy hours.
Make Wait Times Productive: We waste time waiting in the subway, in the departmental queue, or to heat our lunch in the microwave. Do some lunges or swing your hands to make your body stay active.
Stop Being the Couch Potato: Do you close your work laptop only to open your TV beside it? Have some space in between the TV and your couch. Exercise while watching your favorite show.
Set the Stairs on Fire: Walking up and down the stairs is not making much of a difference? It is time to ramp up the intensity a bit. The Seattle Gym fitness instructor Kari Anderson suggests that you take two steps at a time for a starter.
