No time to exercise? Everyone has 10 minutes they can steal. Studies prove several 10 minute bouts of exercise throughout the day are equally beneficial for your health and calorie-burning as one longer continuous session.
If you spend your day at a desk, take 10 minutes out of every two hours to get up, get moving and get closer to a body you can be proud of. You will return to your desk refreshed, with more mental clarity and a renewed sense to continue working knowing you are closer to reaching your fitness goals. Giving your metabolism a boost several times through the day, adds up to more fat burning.
The following four 10-minute workoutscan easily fit into your day, help burn off your meals and, most importantly, you'll have fun getting fit.
Climb Your Way to Fitness -- Start out with two trips up and down a flight of stairs. For your next two trips, pick up the pace going up the stairs, and walk down at a moderate pace. For trips five and six, take giant steps by placing your foot on every other step. Walk down at a moderate pace. The seventh and eighth trip you should vigorously pump your arms (think Rocky) as you climb, then walk down slowly. If necessary, hold on to the railing when descending the steps. Finally for the last two minutes, perform quick steps up and down on the bottom step (like a football drill).
Million Dollar Boxing Body -- Stand up in your office or anywhere you have a few feet of space around you. For the first minute, step side to side with your hands up as if to protect your face. For the second minute, make the side step a little deeper so that you are squatting at the mid point. For minutes three through five, plant your feet and work on repeating 16 of each of the following punches with each arm; cross punch, jab and upper cut.
