Simple Every Day Exercises To Stay In Shape
Skipping & Other Simple Exercises
Simple Exercise Routines
With obesity and time constraints falling hand in hand, it's sometimes hard to find the right amount of time to do a solid work out to burn off calories and keep healthy. Exercising on a regular basis can be as simple as doing star jumps or using a skipping rope. The critical element in regular and effective exercise is ensuring you get your heart rate up and do regular exercise training. Developing a routine of about 5 exercises to do over the space of about 20-30minutes can have dramatic impacts on your health and well being.
Free Everday Exercises
Exercise doesn't necessarily mean spending hundreds of dollars on gym equipment and gym membership fees. Developing a formula of simple home exercise routines is all it takes to get back on track to being fit and healthy.
Suggested exercises to include in your routine are:
- Star jumps
- A quick 50metre sprint
- Quick push-ups
- Sit ups
- Pull ups/ Chin ups
- A fast jog on the spot
- Jumping jacks
Effective Exercise Routines
Here are some simple exercise routines to use without having to spend money on weights of gym membership fees. It is recommended to perform these exercises in your local sporting field, basketball stadium or sporting environment away from your home. This will encourage you to work in a more suitable sport environment and prevent you from being in your comfort zone at home. Being away from home also prevents you from watching the tv or finding ways to distract yourself from exercising.
Please note that the below routines are examples. Feel free to include these elements into your own exercise routine suited to your own ability and health condition.
50 metre light jog -> 10 push ups -> 10 situps -> 30 seconds rest -> 50 metre sprint -> 10 push ups -> 30 seconds rest -> 20 sit ups -> 50 metre sprint -> 30 seconds rest -> 200 metre jog -> 20 sit ups -> 5 quick push ups -> rest.
50 metre jog -> 50 metre sprint -> 10 seconds rest -> 30 seconds of fast skipping on the spot -> 10 sit ups -> 30 seconds rest -> 1 minute of skipping on the spot -> 50 metre sprint -> rest.
Choose each of the different routines for each exercise session. Repeat the routine 2 times in your session. Every few days, try to increase the level of exercise you are performing to ensure a maximum work out. For example, try doing a total of 10 more push ups in the second week of your exercise, or try running a 100 metre sprint instead of a 50 metre sprint.
Record Your Progress
Keep a diary or a written journal detailing the exercises your performed during that training session. This will help you keep track of the exercises you have done. It will also outline the progress you have made in terms of pushing your limits when exercising.
Recording your muscle mass or weight every morning when you wake up will also assist you in motivating yourself and achieving your goals.
Remember: Stay hydrated!
