Modern busy schedules rarely allow for hours of cardio at a time. So, a more practical solution would be to try to squeeze in some exercise, every chance you get. After a while, it slowly starts to add up, and by the end of the day, you can find yourself having worked out as much as 30-45 minutes. So here are top 13 Unexpected Ways to Fit in Cardio into your daily routine.
First Thing’s First
When you wake up in the morning, try going for a brisk 5-10 minute powerwalk in your neighborhood. It will energize you for the rest of the day.
If you’re working in an office or even from the comfort of your own home, try doing some quick push-ups between activities.
Going to work? Maybe go for the stairs instead of the elevator. You can get a great glute workout while you’re at it. Not to mention that stair climbing is one of the best forms of steady state cardio.
If you’re a student stuck at home studying for an exam or even reading in a secluded corner at the library, you can try getting in a few bodyweight squats, in between chapters. This way you will remain focused throughout and have something to motivate you to finish your chapter requirements faster.
Watching TV at home? How about changing channels the old-school way, by getting up and pushing the buttons on the TV set, instead of using the remote.
You can kill two birds with one stone, by giving the house a sweep, vacuuming up that living room and even giving that driveway a once over with the water hose.
