Sitting on the tube for hours? Use your time wisely and stand up. With your feet hip-width apart, and flat on the floor lift on to the balls of your feet so you work your calf muscles. Hold for around 8 seconds and then lower your feet back down again.
Flying around on the bus? Use your core to brace yourself and work your centre. As the bus twists and turns, keep a slight bend in your knees while you stand and feel the weight in your feet and keep your core strong to keep you from rocking.
If you’ve time to kill sitting in the back of a cab, use your briefcase, handbag or files to give yourself a mini workout. Place the item between your knees and then squeeze together and hold for at least ten seconds before releasing.
When you get to work, simply running up and down the stairs will keep you fitter than if you were to take the lift.
If you find a gym close to your workplace then you’ve got the whole of your lunch hour to sweat it out, without eating into the rest of your day. Convenient, and healthy, check out the gyms near to you and get to it!
It's so true you can do lots of little bits of exercise here and there. They all add up and keep me motivated.and I would recommend this approach to anyone, you just have to be a little creative.
finally - someone gets it! Great ideas for those of us on the morning and evening lemming run. Thank you thank you!
