We can all find excuses for not going to the gym or doing exercise, but you don't need a gym to get fit and keep fit. Here we examine how you can exercise during your average day.
Have you ever wondered if you could be doing more than just stand still as you are queuing up for the bus? Whether it's waiting around at a busy supermarket checkout or just patiently queuing up at a fairground ride, you can actually be improving your physique and toning up your body while you do!
Simply by clenching your buttocks, holding in your stomach or just breathing deeply and slowly as you stand there can actually work wonders for your overall body toning as you wait around, queuing up!
Are you fed up of queuing up and find that the boredom sometimes gets to you? Haven't you ever thought that there is something constructive you could be doing whilst standing in an almost motionless line of people?
As you are waiting for anything from buying tickets for your favourite musical show to tickets for a sporting event or to get an autograph from a famous celebrity, it makes sense to use every opportunity you have to tone up and it's all free and so simple, you can't go wrong!
By practising deep breathing exercises and improving your posture, you can actually lose weight! Breathing properly means that you take in air and breathe deeply until your lungs have filled to their capacity.
Most people do not actually breathe properly and by performing this simple procedure, you can increase your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). This rate represents the amount of calories that you consume simply by resting. If you increase this rate and improve your metabolism so that you burn calories faster at rest, you'll find that you can lose weight by burning fat more quickly!
If you don't have time to visit the gym three times a week and your lifestyle is so busy that you can't find the time to go for a twenty five minute jog around the park at six o'clock in the morning, ten these simple but highly effective exercises can help you to achieve improved health and fitness. Give it a try!
