Have a busy schedule that’s keeping you from having a good work out? Try including these helpful tips that will maximize your productivity and make you feel stronger.
1. Do Some Mini-Squats
Squats are a must have on your exercise routine. Try doing mini squats for about 15 minutes each day. Not only does it help with your lower body, but it also builds strength on the upper body. Few exercises work as many muscles as the squat, so it’s an excellent multi-purpose activity useful for toning and tightening your legs and abs.
2. Strengthen The Arms
When you want to isolate specific muscle groups in the arms, dumbbells are truly effective. Get ready to feel the burn! Depending on your strength, grab at least two size weights ranging from 5 to 15 pounds so you can switch up the appropriate size dumbbells for each move.
3. Stretch The Entire Body
Sometimes, all you need to do is stretch! Whether you’re sitting near a desk for a prolong period of time or your resting on the couch, stretching has been proven to release tension and improve flexibility. Take 10 minutes out of your day to stretch and try to do so at least 2-3 days a week you will achieve the most benefits. Because stretching increases your range of motion, it is important to get in the habit of stretching often in order to increase flexibility.
