A Few Daily Exercises to Do Today
By Virginia Laird
Exercise is a touchy subject. There are many who are passionate about working out, and there are those who hate the thought of it. No matter which crowd best describes you, there is reason to begin making time to exercise. Still, there are some who simply do not have the time to hit the gym for hours on end. This is where fitness instructors recommend a few things you can do to exercise without ever going to the gym. These include:
- Give lunges a try
- Jumping a rope is healthy
- Add a bike ride to your evening
Give Lunges a Try
Like many others, I have a love/hate relationship with lunges. These are a great exercise to sculpt your legs, but they are hard work. Lunges help burn unwanted fat from the hard-to-tone areas of the legs. Fitness experts admit that beginning your journey of lunges with too many can prevent you from loving them. Rather than starting with more than 20, it is suggested that you begin with five. As you build strength, add a couple. Fitness gurus admit that participating in routine lunges can help you see progress in a matter of a few weeks. Although this progress will be slow and minimal (in the beginning) it will grow as you stick to the plan.
Jumping a Rope Is Healthy
Jumping rope can seem a bit elementary. However, this is a great workout for cardio, as well as your calves. Fitness instructors admit that jumping rope can be with or without an actual rope. While the thought of jumping rope may seem to be boring, there are actually ways you can get the job done without it being the same each time. Check here for a few ideas to keep your jump rope routine exciting.
Add a Bike Ride to Your Evening
For those who are looking for something a little more low-impact, a bike ride is a great choice. Riding a bike can help with weight loss and toning your legs. There are many who turn to bikes to help build strong cardio. Fitness experts say that as little as a 30-minute ride can help get your weight and health moving in the right direction. This is also a great workout for those who prefer working out with a friend.
Make today the day you start adding a few of these exercises to your daily workout regimen. Hopefully you will fall in love with these exercises and love the results.
