If you made an excuse for not exercising today, here’s the workout for you.
You don’t need to buy a DVD, a gym membership or any equipment. You can do it at home. One round takes only eight minutes.
Exercise 30 minutes daily
The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise five days a week or 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity three days a week. Three or four rounds of this heart-pumping workout will meet your requirement for the day.
If you don’t have a 30-minute block to exercise or you’re unable to complete 30 minutes at once – don’t worry.
“Break it up if you need to,” said Ann Hall, a Marshfield Clinic physical therapist. “Do 10 or 15 minutes whenever you get a chance – when you wake up, before you eat lunch at work, when your kids are taking a nap.”
Quick calorie-burning aerobic exercises
Try these eight exercises for one minute each. Not only will you burn calories, you’ll build strong bones and muscles with this weight-bearing workout.
Your calorie burn will depend on your weight and how vigorously you exercise, Hall said.
Talk to your doctor before starting an exercise program.
