While we HIGHLY encourage you to get up, get out, and get active, we understand not everyone has the luxury of time.
If it's absolutely impossible for you to get to the gym or even go for a 20-minute jog, check out these easy exercises below that will burn calories throughout your busy day.
Do pushups against the wall in the shower
Stand on one leg while brushing your teeth; this helps build strength and balance in
Plie while loading the dishwasher
Squat and stand while lifting your fork or spoon eating breakfast
Run up the stairs and walk sideways down them
Stand up between responding to emails
Send your doument to another print station
Walk away from your desk at lunch — never eat at your desk!
Cross your opposite leg while sitting to help your spine and posture alignment
Twist your spine by reaching around the back of your chair at the top of each hour
Pace during conference calls
Press your head against the headrest while driving in the car to strengthen the neck
muscles that are weakened by hours at the computer.
Squeeze your hands on the steering wheel at every red light or stopped traffic
Time yourself while cleaning up the kitchen or home to see how fast you can do it
Do crunches, plank rotations and leg lifts during the commercials while watching TV
Do bicycle abs in bed while watching TV or reading a book
Totally easy, right?
Now you shouldn't have any more excuses for not doing, at least, SOME exercise. Unless of course, you just don't want to do any to begin with.
