If you do not have the opportunity to fully engage in sports, we recommend simpler options for exercise.
It is necessary to move in any conditions, so we found what physical activities will be relevant and useful. We have prepared 10 ways to move as much as possible.
Method №1: Go up and down the stairs
We know that this advice is as old as the world, but not for nothing, because it is still effective. Climbing stairs instead of an elevator increases heart rate, helps maintain balance, and improves endurance. You can lighten your load and climb stairs on “socks” or heels.
Method 2: Plan hiking with friends or zoom out
If you work from home, schedule your mobile meeting on the street. If you don’t need to look at the screen and view spreadsheets, plug in headphones, put your phone in your pocket and solve the world’s problems on a walk. This is a great way to mix up your daily routine. Also plan meetings with friends in the form of walks.
Method №3: Do lunges where possible
Lunges are a simple exercise that can effectively pump the leg muscles. Agree, it looks a little strange if done outside the gym, but now is the time that exercise can be given to yourself, walking with a cart in the supermarket. Modern woman – mobile woman.
Method №4: Fitball instead of a chair
If you work remotely and have back or lower back pain, it is best to replace your chair or what you are working on with a fitball (big ball). Simple movements on it back and forth, rotate the pelvis clockwise and vice versa, do stretching vertebrae. This can help cope with back pain and improve posture. Fitball is a useful thing, even if you do not lead a sedentary lifestyle.
Method №5: Park away from the destination
Although we need to think about our safety and the safety of our property, if you are in a safe and well-lit place, think about parking away from the entrance, wherever you go. In this way you will increase the number of steps every day and increase the benefits for your body.
Method №6: Have more sex
Some studies claim that sex burns calories at a rate of about 3.1 calories per minute for women and about 4.2 calories for men. So, although it is not the same as an energetic run, you can sweat a lot during sex. Have fun, try new positions and tricks.
Method №7: Walk the dogs out of the shelter
If you do not have your own pet that you need to walk regularly, then you can contact the local animal shelters. They will be happy to give you this option. Moreover, now your help will be extremely necessary. You can do two useful things at once: pump your body and give homeless dogs the joy of your company.
Method №8: Arrange a dance break for one
Dancing is always a good way to relieve stress and burn a few calories. Turn on your favorite music, but don’t turn off the air alarm, and dance as if no one sees you: while cooking dinner or cleaning, or maybe you’re planting a garden now, then dancing will help you do it faster and more effectively.
Method №9: Organize an active game
If you have children – great: play hide and seek with them, catching up or other moving children’s toys. If not – organize an evening with friends who do not mind playing twister or limbo with you. Moreover, it can be done in the fresh air, but be careful and always look under your feet.
Method №10: Stretch while watching news or TV series
Find comfortable stretching exercises for yourself and do them when reading the news or watching something on TV. A 30-minute show can provide you with 30 minutes of exercise that you previously put off. A great way to finally sit on the twine!
