You Must Make Time for Aerobic Exercise.
We know you planned to exercise today, but it’s late, so now you’ll plan to exercise tomorrow.
We know you planned to exercise yesterday, too. Just like today, time flew by and you never got around to your workout.
Your day belongs to you. You control the time that you spend on each task. You also control the amount of time you invest in yourself and your health.
Exercise does not have to be difficult or time consuming. There are many easy aerobic exercises out there that you can do in minutes.
All you need is 30 minutes a day, that is it!
In fact, if you are really pressed for time, research show that as little as 20 minutes a day of intense exercise will decrease your chance of early death by 20 percent.
Wow! Talk about great ROI!
You don’t need fad diets or trendy workouts. You just need your breath and your body and you can change your life with easy aerobic exercises.
You know that aerobic exercise is great for your body. It builds lean muscles while strengthening your bones and heart. Aerobic exercise also builds a better brain and improves your mood at the same time.
Challenge Yourself to Do These Easy Aerobic Exercises.
Aerobic exercises can be fun and easy. You don’t need to join an intensive zumba class, if that’s not your thing.
I challenge you to get outside and build a better life for yourself with one of these easy aerobic exercises.
You can walk, run or bike your way to a healthier life.
Don’t forget to stretch before you start this challenge.
If walking or running is your game, then we challenge you to go out and buy a pedometer and count your steps daily. Can you meet the challenge of 10,000 steps each day? We know you can do it!
Pair Easy Aerobic Exercises with a Dynamic Warm-Up.
Begin each workout with a dynamic warm- up. Dynamic warm-ups involve stretching and moving at the same time. They get your heart pumping and your muscles filled with blood.
Here are more dynamic warm-up exercises to add to your routine:
- Hip Circles
- 10 times each leg
- 10 times, progressing forward
- Rotate legs
- Start in push-up position. Slowly walk feet towards your hands; stop once the pull in your leg is uncomfortable. Then slowly walk your hands forward to re-enter push-up position.
- Repeat inching five to ten times.
- Toe and Heel Walks
- 20 meters, walking on your toes. Repeat with toes facing in, and then facing out.
- Repeat this while walking on your heals.
- At least 20 meters
