Fitness Tip: Get A Little Bit of Exercise Everyday

Would you like to feel better? look better? or even increase your productivity? If so, get some exercise today. It does not have to be an hour on the treadmill or elliptical. It can be as simple as a five-minute walk or even a five-minute ab workout. Some other ideas for quick work outs are: 25 Squats, 25 push-ups, or 25 Jumping Jacks

Still short on time, here are a few more workouts:

  • Hold a 45 Sec Plank

The Biggest Excuse to Exercise

Time is one the biggest excuses people use to justify why they do not exercise. People often say things like: “If I only had more time…”. A question that no one seems to ask is: how much time do I really need? You do not need to spend two hours a day in the gym to get fit, you do not even need one full hour. At the moment, you do not even need half an hour. If you are currently doing nothing, a quick five-minute workout is a great way to start.

Exercise For Five Minutes

Exercising for five minutes a day, will help get you moving in the right direction. As you start building the habit, you can increase it to gradually to 10, 15, 20 or more minutes. However, no matter what day of the week it is, make sure you get at least five minutes in. If you need workout ideas, there are hundreds of different five minute workouts you can do on YouTube.

My Current Exercise Schedule

I aim to go to the gym six days a week for about a 45-minute workout. However, I actually end up just going about four or five times a week to the gym. I work out in the evenings and it is quite easy to get distracted or find out that I have more important activities that I need to do complete that night.

How to Stay Motivated to Exercise

On days that I do not go the gym, I exercise for five minutes, it helps me trick my brain into thinking I am getting a full workout. Whether, it is an fitness app that I use for ab exercises, doing 50 push-ups or even a few dumbbell curls. Exercising everyday builds a habit, keeps it consistent and creates a routine in your life.

Do Whatever It Takes to Exercise

Quit making excuses, quit blaming people and do whatever it takes to get five minutes of exercise. Everybody has five minutes in their day that they can spare to get a quick little workout. If you do not have five minutes, then set your alarm clock five or ten minutes earlier. A great way to start your day is with some exercise and it can only get better.
