The majority of people have busy schedules and they find it difficult to set aside some time for working out. Although it may seem impossible, there are some ways to make sure that you will have it all.
Divide the Workout
Most probably you won’t find half an hour to work out, but how about ten minutes at a time? For example you could have a cardio session of 10 minutes when you wake up, before hitting the shower. Then take another 10 minutes for power walking during your lunch break. At the evening (while dinner is cooking) take ten minutes for weight training.
Believe it or not, you can strengthen your core and improve your stability while sitting at your desk. All you have to do is to give up your chair and switch to a stability ball. It is also a good idea to have a couple of dumbbells in your drawer and do some exercises in your lunch break.
The jump rope is one of the smallest workout equipment you can find, and if you use it for 10 minutes you can burn up to 110 calories. This is something that you may carry around and you can also take it on business trips.
Walking and Talking
Although some people say that you shouldn’t be talking while working out, the truth is that this is an efficient way of multitasking. If you walk with a coworker you can discuss the details of a project while if you talk on the phone you can catch up with your friends while burning calories.
The biggest advantage of short yoga sessions is that you can stretch the muscles without breaking a sweat. This is a great workout option if you have a yoga studio close to your workplace.
Although you could practice cycling in your free time, you can also use it to get to work. It is true that most probably you will sweat, so it is important to have clean clothes at the office and it is even better if you have a shower in the building.
If you know that you won’t have time to work out, you should do everything you can to force yourself to move, such as parking far away from the building entrance or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Try to find excuses to work out.
