There are a lot of people who think that exercises need to necessarily be long and extremely tiring if one wants to burn calories and to have a beautiful and healthy body. And that is often why these people avoid doing exercises at all because they think that they do not have the time and the energy to do it.
Well, if you are one of these people, then you no longer have an excuse not to do exercises. There are actually easy and not time-consuming exercises which can help you move and burn calories without feeling absolutely exhausted. If you are curious to try them out, here they are!
#1 10-minute morning exercise
If you are not too much in a hurry in the morning, you could simply take 10 minutes to do some exercises. The important thing is not to stop and constantly do the exercises during these 10 minutes. It is also important to do different kinds of exercises, for example, ones that will train different muscle groups – hips, belly, arms, etc.
You do not even need to sweat that much. The next day you could try with doing other exercises. The morning exercises will not only help boost your metabolism and thus burn more calories, but they will also make you more energized and ready to face your everyday tasks. So, do not miss to start your day with a quick workout.
Nowadays, there are a lot of people who have cars and they are so much used to using them that they hardly walk. If you are one of these people that do not walk at all, then you need to change this as soon as possible. It is not necessarily to spend hours walking around, but if you have to go to the shop, for example, do not take your car.
Take time to walk at least once a day. Here is another idea you could try. You could park your car a little far from your office and then walk to it. And at the end of the day, even if you are very tired, you will not have any other choice but to walk to your car. This way you will burn some calories without even noticing it.
#3 Take the stairs
Not only walking, but also taking the stairs could help you lose weight. If you live on the 8th floor, take the stairs. If you are too tired somewhere in the middle of the way, just slow down. Take your time and do not rush, but the important thing is not to give up.
If you live on a higher floor and you find it too tiring to take the stairs all the way to your apartment, then you could go halfway and take the elevator to your floor. Take your time and be consistent – these are the two most important rules. In a couple of months you will notice that you have already become fitter and you can go all the way up.
#4 Do sitting exercises
In fact, you could do exercises while you are sitting, so you will already stop having an excuse for working too long hours in a sitting position and not having the time to do exercises. If you have ever ridden a horse, then you probably know that even sitting on a horse can cause muscle strainboth on your stomach muscles and your hips.
So, you could do the same while you are sitting in your chair. You need to stand up straight so that your stomach muscles to tighten as much as possible. Or you could also tighten your muscles for about half a minute and then relax, tighten them again for 30 seconds and relax. Repeat this as many times as you can. You could also do the same with your leg muscles. And all of this in the comfort of your chair. Just be careful not to have muscle strain later.
#5 Do exercises with a friend
There are studies that have shown that people who do exercises with a friend are more likely not to give up doing them. You could do the same if you do not want to give up. You could even have a competition with one of your friends.
You could install an app on your phone that counts the number of steps you have made during the say. At the end of the day you will compare your results with your friend and you will see who won and who lost.
This will work as another stimulating way to help you do more exercises without you even realizing this. After all you should know that this is for your own good.
