Working out doesn’t have to be a stressful activity, nor does it have to be something that creates a tipping point on your daily to-do list. You’d be surprised with the results if you do just a little bit at a time consistently each and every day. There are many ways you can sneak in a workout during a busy day without thinking twice. Since I’ve been getting into shape, I find the time however and whenever I can. It can be a challenge, but it’s something you simply have to do, however you can make it happen. Today I am sharing 5 ways to sneak in a workout so that you can take full advantage of these sneaky ways to get fit.
Do 10 or more squats every time you go to the bathroom. This will seriously only take you a few moments and you are already taking a restroom break anyways. Get into the habit of doing 10 squats each time you go to the bathroom throughout your busy day.
Place dumbbells at the bottom of your stairs, each time you walk up and down the stairs carry these with you. Doing some bicep curls for every walk up and down those stairs will quickly start to help your arms gain muscle tone.
Always take the Stairs
No matter how quicker it is to use the elevator, always opt to take the stairs when running errands. Whether it’s a shopping trip day with the other half or you are off paying bills for the household, always take the stairs!
Use Your Body
Whenever you think of it, take out 5 minutes, literally, do some exercise. 50 sit-ups, 25 push-ups, 10 chin-ups. Just squeeze in a quick set literally whenever you think of it. It’s not hard and it’s quick, but you will see the difference with time.
Schedule a Daily Walk
Last, but not least, schedule a daily 30-60 minute walk. This can be a great way to enjoy your lunch break. Make sure to have a daily walk to keep that exercise level up and in turn it can help you recoup from a stressful morning which is a total winning scenario. You’d be surprised just how good walking is for you and how good you’ll feel when you’re done.
Move in Place
Take a minute out and job, run, jump rope, or do jumping jacks right in place. Sounds crazy, but it works and it’s quick and easy.
