While we are spending a lot more time at home these days, it can very easy to lose track of time and spend your whole work day sitting still in front of a computer and your whole evening sitting in front of the TV. At times like this it’s even more important to prioritise health and wellbeing, and getting your daily dose of exercise is beneficial not only for your physical health, but it also boost immunity, and improves your mental health.
If you’re busy juggling work and home schooling, taking time for yourself can seem impossible, but remember accumulating 6 small 10-minute bouts of exercise can be just as effective as one 60 minute session.
The most effective and time efficient exercise you can do is the kind that hits a lot of big muscle groups all at once, so your heart rate goes up and as many muscles as possible are activated.
Some of these might be resistance training exercises that use major muscles groups like squats, lunges and push ups, or are combinations movements combining a lunge and twist, or a squat with a kick, push up with a rotation etc.
Other options might be full body cardio movement like start jumps, mountain climbers, burpees, skipping or just running on the spot. If you are interested in a bit more support at home find out more about our online Personal Training options.
