4 Simple Exercises You Can Do Everyday to Build Strength and Conditioning
Don't have a whole lot of time to exercise everyday? Want to build muscle and conditioning? Don't want to have to learn have to invest any money in equipment or clothing? Want to not have to put a lot of time into working out? Don't want to have to learn any new moves? Want to spend the least amount of time, the least amount of money, and the least amount of time to build strength of conditioning? Then you should do the following exercises everyday of the week: push-ups, crunches, walking, and climbing.
I do about a hundred half push-ups about every single day. Mind you, I'm 50 + years. What I do is very simple. I place my toes under my living room sofa and I start crunch. I pump out 100 crunches a day with my arms stretched across my body. Doing those 100 crunches takes me less than 2 minutes to perform. And what do I have to show for my effort? A flatter stomach.
Next, I get in position to do my half-push-ups. I push out 100 of them just about every single day. I get down on my living room floor and commence to count 1, 2, 3...until I have performed 100 half-push-ups. And how long did it take me to do the half push-ups. Again, less than 2 minutes. What benefits have I received from doing 100 half push-ups a day? A more muscular figure! Many of my friends thought that I had been lifting weights. "No", I would tell them, "I am just doing push-ups".
The third thing I do is I leave my house and go to work. I head towards the train station which is about a mile away from my house. I walk a mile a day. Sometimes I walk slowly. Other times I walk briskly. Still at other times I follow a more medium pace. What rate I walk at, I walk one mile each day on my way to work.What health benefit did I receive by performing this natural exercise just about everyday? I develop both strong lungs together with a strong heart. In addition, I improve both my fitness and conditioning somewhat.
Last, I climb just about every single day. That is to say that instead of taking the escalator, I almost always take the stairs. While most people are riding and not exerting any effort, I am doing the opposite: exerting myself by climbing the stairs. What a wonderful way to improve your heart, your lungs, and your level of fitness and conditioning.
To recap, I just discussed four simple, non-time consuming, and non-monetary ways to get build strength and fitness without having to expend a whole lot of effort. They are as follows: crunches, push-ups, walking, and climbing.
