Working out doesn’t have to take up the whole day

So you’ve got a busy social life, work long hours and commute one hour each way every day? Or you are have a baby and a toddler and a hungry partner that expects food at the table each evening when they come back from work? I hear you…

But exercise doesn’t have to take up all of your day. Not even 30 minutes at a time! The WHO recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity per week for 18-64 year-olds and it can be done in bouts of 10 minutes. It also doesn’t mean just sports. It includes walking, dancing, gardening, household chores, etc. 

10 Facts on Physical Activity

Here are a couple of short workouts to add to your day if you feel you aren’t achieving this or just want to work a little harder and burn extra calories (that nice pain au chocolat or cheesecake)!

The 30-Day, 100-Rep Squat challenge!

You Only Need 10 Minutes To Blast Through This Summer Workout

If you are a new mum – and you have had your 8-week postnatal check and an ok from your GP, – you could try the basic squat and sumo squat with your baby on a sling. I would not recommend the jump squat with a baby but you could adapt it so that you do a (gentle) baby lift followed by a squat. This way you work your arms too!

Happy exercising!
