10 minute home exercise
10 minute home exercise. Sports and fitness experts recommend that we should spend at least 30 minutes of the day working out.
This will help with weight loss and our overall fitness.However, this is easier said than done and all depends on the lifestyle you lead.
If you are single and have no commitment to running a family then this is a lot easier than those with children who demand more of your time.
There are some exercises thought that we can all do regardless of our home circumstances that will allow us to exercise as we go about our home duties.
We have selected a few home exercises anyone can do at any time in your own home in your own time.
Here are simple, practical ways to work exercise into your day even when you’re short on time.
Walk your street
This is an easy one for all of us. When you climb out of bed in the morning and before you jump into the show, walk from one end of your street to the other (if you live in a cul-de-sac or short road) and do this twice so you get at least a mile brisk walk in before you start your day. Don’t rush it and breathe in the air around you.
Get an exercise bike
Depending on the space of your house or apartment, an exercise bike is an ideal way to peddle a few K’s before breakfast or bedtime. Unlike treadmills that can be server on your knees, an exercise bike is great a cycling at your own pace.
Set yourself a small distance to cover at the start. Over time gradually build on this. Don’t over exert yourself thought.
While you are waiting for those spuds or pasta to boil, try doing some jumping jacks on the kitchen floor. By spending 5-10 minutes.
A 150-pound woman can burn at least 90 calories in one 10-minute session. You can also try a few minutes of standing push ups.
Stand about an arm’s length from the kitchen counter, and push your arms against the counter. Push in and out to get toned arms and shoulders.
Outdoor after meals
After your evening meal, go out into the garden and breathe in the air. Small things like kicking a ball about with your children burns calories.
If you don’t have children try bouncing a ball off the wall and catching it. This all counts as exercise 10 minutes of this is far more beneficial than sitting in front of the TV.
Exercise before bed by your bed
Slight stretching and toe touching is great before bedtime. Do this with ease for between 5-10 minutes and it will help relax your body. In time it will tone those muscles you never realised you had.
Get a gym matt and try to include some sit-ups. Have a sheet of paper at hand and record your nightly regime. Try the following
- 20 X touching your toes
- 20 X sit-ups
- 20 X press ups
Remember, It doesn’t have to be intensive as it’s not a full gym work. You also want to avoid a sprained wrist or groin injury. It will also help with your sleep.
The above are all simple and easy exercises you can do around the house and in the comfort of your own home. Always remember to consult your GP before trying any exercises. Remember to drink extra water after any type of work out to keep yourself hydrated.
