7 Easy Ways To Fit More Exercise Into Your Day

Nov 16, 2016 10:39:58 AM

Combining Phen Caps with a nutritious diet and regular exercise is the best way to ensure successful weight loss. But, regular exercise doesn’t have to mean hours on the treadmill – the best exercise regimes are ones which you can do consistently and conveniently. If all you have time for is a quick ten minutes while you’re waiting for dinner to cook then so be it. When it comes to activity, something is always better than nothing. So, if you’re pushed for time, how can you fit in small amounts of exercise? Here we give you seven different ways to fit more exercise into your day.

1. Wake Up Work Out

Instead of pressing snooze for a third time, how about dragging yourself out of bed to do a quick work out? Give your metabolism and energy levels a boost in under two minutes by with these quick energy-boosting exercises – try 20 jumping jacks, run on the spot for 20 seconds, do 20 seconds of invisible jump-rope, then finish with 20 seconds of high-knee jogging.

2. Mini Morning Routine

If you have time in the morning, try this mini exercise routine before you head to work. Morning exercisers have been shown to experience more benefits than those who work out later in the day, including a bigger energy boost, and a greater release of ‘happy hormones’. Morning exercise also keeps your metabolism revved up so that you’ll burn more fat all day long. Do all of the following for one minute each: squats, inchworm, front lunges, reverse lunges, push-ups, and side planks (both sides). Take a quick break then repeat and you’ve got yourself the perfect full body workout in under 15 minutes! For more ideas on how to work out at home, check out these tips.

3. Kegel Exercises

Kegel exercises involve you contracting your pelvic floor muscles and can be done anytime anywhere, so these are perfect for doing while you’re sat at your desk. Kegel exercises benefit both men and women, helping to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, plus they also stabilize and protect the lower spine whilst helping to contribute to a flatter stomach.

4. Go For A Lunchtime Stroll

A 10-minute walk at lunchtime is the perfect energizing pick-me-up and it will help to reduce stress too. It’s been found that this is enough to boost your energy levels for 2 hours, so you’ll be less likely to suffer from the typical 3pm energy slump and subsequent afternoon snack attack, meaning more weight loss! Getting outside around midday is also a great way to get your daily dose of vitamin D, which is crucial for the body to be able to convert protein to lean muscle and burn fat.

5. Do Desk Yoga

Sat at a computer all day? Then try this office-friendly seated yoga workout, which takes just three minutes to stretch you out after you’ve been hunched over your desk.

6. Fit In Some HIIT

If Phen Caps is giving you a much-needed boost of energy but you’re seriously lacking on time to work out, then High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a great way to expel the added energy. Scientific research shows that HIIT exercise provides all the benefits of prolonged endurance but in a much shorter space of time. However, you have to focus on resistance-based moves and really put the effort in if you’re hoping for hours-at-the-gym results from an 8-minute workout.

7. Get Planking

If you’ve ever tried to plank then you’ll know that it’s a lot harder than it looks, but it is one of the most beneficial exercises you can do. The best way to start is by doing a basic plank for 10 seconds and then try to add 10 seconds to your time each day. We’re sure that everyone has at least a that much time free at some point in their day so there are no excuses for not starting to perfect your plank right now! Daily planking helps to tone your body, improve posture, prevent back pain, boost metabolism, make you more flexible, improve balance, and release mental tension – not a bad payoff for 10 seconds a day!
