All of us want to be fit without giving up our delicious food and without spending too much time in the gym unless the real motivation is to look cool. Nothing comes without an effort; in the same way, the process of maintaining a perfect body is a long road to go.
But you don’t need to worry because losing weight and giving your body the desired shape is not as more robust as it might seem. In many cases, it is just a matter of assigning 30 minutes per day to simple body exercises, that too without hitting the gym.
Here, you are going to learn about the easy to do physical exercises that don’t require your time and money.
Do 5 Minutes Yoga
Don’t refrain from practicing yoga, only because it has become too mainstream. In fact, adopting such an attitude towards, yoga means you are underestimating its power. Another misconception that might be barring you from doing yoga is that it requires mastering a technique. Yoga has got different postures, including a basic pose and crossed legs pose. You also don’t need to spend hours on one pose. Just pick up time; it can be early morning, evening, before going to bed or even during the lunch break at your office. Just take out two to five minutes from your busy routine, and you will be all set for a mental and physical detox.
Do Your Chores as an Exercise
Putting on weight despite doing a lot of work at home is a common dilemma of housewives. Have you ever wondered why these women who work hard from dawn to dusk to keep their home in order, can’t lose weight? Well, the answer lies in fact, that all the women do work, they don’t consider it a useful physical activity.
Don’t be like housewives, just consider turning your daily life chores at home into a proper exercise. If you complete your work in one hour, then be fast and bring down the time to forty-five minutes and then thirty minutes. Just make a roadmap of all the activities and repeat them in the same manner but in a faster way.
Do Static Stretching
Stretching is a great physical exercise for general purpose fitness. If you are not an athlete and want to follow a fitness regime, then do try the static stretching. All you need to do is to contract and relax the body muscles, particularly those of arms and legs for a particular time duration. A useful aspect of stretching is that it doesn’t carry any risk of injury. You also don’t need equipment or going to the gym to do stretching. But don’t forget to consult your physicians if you are facing specific health disorders. Otherwise, primary static stretching exercises don’t even require the guidelines by an instructor. Doing this exercises for only 10 minutes during the early days of fitness regime is more than enough.
You can do cardio in so many ways. The good thing is that you don’t need to take time out for this. Usually, a 30 minutes jog is more than enough. Still, if going to a nearby park is not possible for you, then consider walking on your way to office and back to home, a commutation by bicycle or by foot is the best cardio exercise. Consider doing running or jogging for at least 150 minutes per week.
Squats are a must to do physical activity if you are looking to get in shape. They don’t require time or technique. All you need is, doing sits and stands for a quick succession of time. In the start, you can do ten reps and then move on to 15, 20 and so on, according to your capacity. A useful aspect of the squats is that they engage almost all the body muscles in one way or other.
Briefly, starting a fitness regime doesn’t mean hitting the gym. Just begin assigning 30 minutes on a daily basis to any of the activity mentioned above.
