We all know that exercising regularly has numerous benefits. When we exercise, the brain releases chemicals that help improve our mood and reduce depression.
Unfortunately, we often find it difficult to follow a scheduled workout routine due to time restraints, lack of focus; or simply because we’re feeling lazy.
If you spend a lot of time watching television, then a fitness ball may be the solution. By sitting on a ball instead of in your armchair, you’ll strengthen your core muscles and improve balance without noticing you’re actually exercising. You can additionally use your exercise ball as a seat while reading or working on the computer. so, the following exercises might just fit into your busy daily routine nicely.
Fast Abs Exercise
Feeling lazy, you might prefer to do an exercise you can do quickly so you may resume more relaxing activities, like watching television or sunbathing. The Captain’s Chair exercise is an exercise that tones the abdominal muscles and only takes one minute a day.
Sit on the edge of a chair, and grasp the front of the seat at either side of your hips. Inhale deeply, then on exhaling, gradually raise your knees toward your chest without arching your back. Hold your knees in the raised position for three seconds, and then lower them. Repeat for around a minute.
Easy Walking Exercise
If you’re feeling lazy, walking may seem like too much of a strenuous exercise, particularly uphill walking.
Walking poles, help make walking a more enjoyable experience for people who struggle with their walking, as the poles automatically ease strain on the joints. Furthermore, when walking poles, we use 90 percent of all muscle groups, and calorie burn is around 40 percent more than when walking normally.
Therefore, it takes less time to burn calories with the poles than without them. You might be pleasantly surprised if you try them.
Exercising in Bed
Bed exercises are designed to be done in bed which makes them ideal for those of us who love to spend our time in bed. To develop the triceps, or back muscles of the upper arms, lie on your left side. Grasp your right arm between the elbow and shoulder with your left hand.
Try to pull your right arm back while simultaneously creating resistance with your left hand. Do this for a few seconds and relax. Repeat five times before switching sides. Gradually increase repetitions until you are performing 25 on each side per day.
Finally, however much or however little we do in terms of exercise, it’s just important we do them. Exercise, together with better lifestyle choices will always contribute to better health. The key is to enjoy what you do.
