Yes!!? Then you are weak and you need daily exercise badly. But in the current scenario, no one has enough time to spend on routine exercises or gym workouts in their busy home and work schedules. But here are some possible ways of fulfilling your exercise routine daily without having to struggle to find time. Let’s try it out.
A woman needs about 45 minutes to 1 hour daily exercise routine and it is highly recommended by experts for good health and fitness. But most women are not getting enough time to spare amidst their various responsibilities. Experts recommend that we must find ways to dedicate at least 30 minutes for daily exercises. So, friends, let’s take a commitment to make it happen for ourselves.
Studies show that women who split their exercise routines into small chunks of 10 minutes each are more likely to exercise consistently. The result is that they would lose more weight than those who exercise 30 to 40 minutes at a stretch.
According to a study conducted by exercise physiologist Glenn Gaesser, PhD at the University of Virginia on women who completed 15 x 10-minute exercise routines a week, it showed that after just 21 days, their aerobic fitness was equal to that of people 10 to 15 years younger.
We can convert a lot of our daily activities to exercises which I am going to explain here. It may not be practical for a few of you out there, but I am sure it would be workable for most.
