Top 4 Workout Routines For Your Workplace

exercise at work

Work can spill into workout hour. I understand. So here are the top 4 workout routines for your workplace. You can’t expect to lose weight using just these 4 workout routines. To lose weight safely, you need to incorporate a healthy diet plan as well as complete workout routines into your lifestyle.


However, for now, you can get started with these 4 workout routines for your workplace:


1.Take The Stairs.

Don’t use the elevator at work, take the stairs instead, always. Keep in mind I’m saying this by assuming your office is in the second or third floor. If your office is beyond the fourth floor, then by all means, save your effort, and breath, and take the elevator. In case your workplace is not in a building, then try to park a little bit away from your usual parking spot. This way you’ll walk more. But always park in well-lit areas of the parking lot. You don’t want to risk your security, do you?


2.Stand Up.

Every hour or so, stand up at your desk to stretch your body, even if you don’t get out of your cubicle, or room, to go anywhere in the office. If it’s safe, then lift your arms and arch your back. Hold for at least 20 seconds while breathing normally. This will energize your spine, helping in digestion, blood circulation, and so on. If you can’t stand up and stretch at your desk, look below for alternate options for working out at your workplace.


3.Brisk Walk.

Whenever you are on your Lunch Break this is a good exercise. Lunch breaks usually range from half-hour to one-hour most of the time. Even if you’re hard at work, you should always break away from your busy schedule to have your lunch and to get a break from work. Assuming you are definitely having your lunch at your lunch break, try to include a brisk walk in your lunch break as well. For this, you have to pack a light, yet filling, lunch. Have your lunch within 10-15 minutes, and use the rest of your lunch break to brisk walk around your office, office building, or just back and forth from your car to your desk. If you’re new to working out, have the brisk walk first, and then have your lunch to ensure your lunch stays inside of you.


4.Workout At Your Desk.

While seated at your desk, lift your knees and stamp lightly on the ground for at least 20 times for both knees. Then stretch your legs by straightening your legs. Flex and point your legs for 30 seconds each. Do this routine multiple times a day at your workplace.


Adding minor changes to your daily life by performing these 4 workout routines can and will make a difference in your activity level, therefore affecting your health in positive way. Choosing to live a healthy lifestyle does not have to require you to make major changes to your daily life. Just by incorporating new minor changes such as adding more daily activities and including a healthy diet plan can pay off well for anyone.  So why not start today!

Tips on How to Never Deal With Boring Workout Routines


If you usually feel tired when doing your workout routines, then something must be wrong. It may not necessarily be your mind or your body complaining that the routine is too hard, rather, it might be that it is already too common that it makes you fall asleep every single time.


A good technique when trying to keep your motivation high is to create variation when it comes to your workouts. This way, you wouldn’t easily get tired when doing them and you will always have a reason to look forward to what you are to do the next morning.


How Boring Is Boring? There is really no exact way of pointing out whether the exercise you are doing is boring or not. But if you find yourself being dragged out of bed in the morning and dreading the idea of going to the gym or exercising in general, then this might be the usual symptoms of a boring workout.


The only way to religiously commit to an exercise routine is to make sure that it doesn’t tire and wear you out. The Fat Burning Rule is a good technique you might want to try is to list down the different types of exercises you already know by heart. Make sure to give each of these routines a little twist and combine them on days wherein you feel that you are most tired because of work or other important engagements.


For instance, if your Mondays are allotted to working out your biceps and your chest, make sure that next Monday, you focus on your triceps and your back instead. It is also important to give your body time to rest and refuel its energy. Not because you are religiously exercising you are guaranteed the best results. Rather, you have to have the right amount of exercise combined with the right combination of diet and the number of hours of sleep as well.

Another helpful tip to remove boredom from your workout vocabulary is to also find a friend who can serve as your motivation to adhere to a routine and stick to it without feeling worn out. Finding a good friend with the same fitness goals as you is a good way of keeping your exercise routine and lifestyle in check. Also, no matter how rigorous or tiring your day is, make it a point to still exercise for at least 30 minutes every single day. A simple jog on lazy days is more than enough compared to not exercising at all, trust me it will make a difference.


Chances are, when you start missing on your workouts and when you fail to follow your usual workout routine, you will find it a lot easier to fall back into the traps of unhealthy living and eventually stop exercising. Thus, challenge yourself to do what you have to do and convince yourself that the saying “No pain no gain” is indeed true.


The long-term benefits of regular exercise is of course worth it as you can imagine.  Making exercise a part of your lifestyle just as you make anything else and committing to it will make it a lot easier to stick with in the long run; it a choice you make. So why not commit and reap the benefits.
