How To Exercise Without Even Knowing It
There really are people who don’t have time for exercise. It could be due to the demands that they get from work or they travel a lot and really can’t even squeeze in at least 15 minutes in their day to workout. But guess what, here are exercises that will remove all your excuses in skipping a day of working out. But you will love these because they appear to be sneaky and the next you know, you are already burning calories as you should.
Cleaning The House: Instead of hiring someone to do it for you, why not clean the house yourself. Movie your furniture and give it a fresh new look. That way, you will be moving your muscles and you will end up exercising.
Stroll The Mall: This is one sneaky way to exercise. You won’t even really know you are already working on some muscles but instead taking the lift or the escalator, just take the stairs. It’s also a good excuse to shop.
Car Wash: Skip the car wash people near your house and just do it yourself. You will have the chance to work out some sweat if you clean your car especially if it happens to be a van or a bigger car than the usual.
Take A Trip And Sight See: If you are ever tired of just doing house parties, why not see your local area and bring your friends. You can even hit the beach and enjoy nature. Go on a hike as well because that will even help you with your respiratory system. If you breathe in healthy air, your can also have your lungs healthy aside from the fact that it is a good cardio.
Grocery Shop Using a Basket: Say goodbye for your grocery carts for a while, use the basket for now. That will help you lift weights especially if you are about to load some heavy groceries.
Commercial Breaks: Make it a habit from now on to do something while your favorite TV show goes on a commercial break. Do some crunches or do some push-ups. Now there is no reason to be idle.
Fix Something In The House: It could be your water pipes, roof that is leaking, or anything that needs quick fixing, do it and you wouldn’t even realize you exercised.
Quit Mowing The Lawn: Instead of using the lawn mower, why not cut the grass manually. That is going to be a good lower body workout specifically for your thighs and your arms while you cut those grass.
Basically, don’t be idle and you surely will lose weight. If you are just on the couch wasting time watching TV, might as well do something productive. You will have a more fulfilling day anyway when you do that. Do something that will make you move and sweat. Anything that gets you off the couch and makes you move could make you burn a lot of calories, so take advantage of that.
