Whether you’re at home, at the office, or at the park, squats are a workout you can do even while standing in line to check out at the grocery store. A simple rep of 10 squats or so gets your heart rate up and your blood pumping.
And you’ll be giving your behind a workout!
Catching up on your favourite Netflix show? Do stationary lunges while you watch. Simple lunges work out your quads and strengthens your balance. Just remember to keep your front knee stacked with your front ankle and lower yourself with care.
Alternatively, try wall sits if you require support.
Kids getting restless staying inside? Suffering from brain block at work? Get moving! Whether it’s a leisurely walk around the neighbourhood, a jaunt around the grocery store, or a simple pacing pattern around your office, walking is more than enough to help you keep off that excess weight and can improve health issues like high blood pressure!
You don’t need fancy dumbbells for this workout! Pick up your tot, a heavy bag, or a stack of books, and get into position! Carrying groceries from your trip? No better time to test out your arm strength than with some bicep curls.
Everyone hates the stairs, but stairs have a great use in our lives! Outside of getting us from one floor to another, stairs are a great way of getting in your cardio for the day. Whether at work or at home, a few laps up and down a flight of stairs for 30 minutes will give you a quick boost to perk you up through your day.
