Quick workouts to fit into your day

If you just can’t find the time to exercise, maybe you should learn to manage your time better. Start out by setting aside 10 minutes in your day to exercise and within a few weeks you will begin craving physical activity and you can then increase your workout time. Here are a few quick workouts you can squeeze into your busy schedule.

Running: Is a great cardio workout and will tone your thighs and legs. All you need to do is slip on your running gear and go for a run. Make sure that for ten minutes, you run as fast as you possible can. This will enable you to burn calories and elevate your heart rate. But, make sure you stretch before you  and after the run. Research shows that simply running for 10 minutes can burn as many as 120 calories.

Biking: If you own a stationary bike, then you simply have to get on it and get in a quick 10 minute workout. But if you own a cycle, you can get outdoors, maybe cycle in a park or around the block. This will enable you to  burn calories by increasing your heart rate. Besides, cycling will also give you a stronger lower body because it exercises all the major muscle groups in the legs; the quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings and calves.

Dancing: This is a fun way to shift the pounds and burn fat. Dancing is a good aerobic exercise, which will benefit both your  heart and lungs as well as improve your balance and co-ordination. And you can simply dance in your living room. Just put on your favourite music and go for it.

Core workouts: Try core exercises like the plank, which will train muscles to stabilise the spine and pelvis so you can improve your posture and also burn calories.

REVOFIT TAKE: Don’t fret if you don’t have the time to exercises for as long as you want to. Instead, just try and include some type of physical activity in your daily routine, because exercise improves our health, mood, stabilises weight and improves the quality of sleep.  Besides, research now shows that a quick workout is as beneficial as an hour- long workout, if you pay attention to intensity.
