If you work at a desk or in meetings for 12-15 hours a day, the last thing you are thinking about by days end is working out.
The biggest excuse, or reason people put off working out after work is they are to tired. No kidding! After you sit as a sedentary individual all day, staring at a computer, and breathing half the breaths that an active person breaths due to sitting there is no wonder you are tired and unmotivated.
Did you know that in a 12 hour work day you can get 48 minutes of exercise in without even doing exercise on your lunch hour. If you have an hour lunch you could definitely squeeze in more time then, but we will discuss that in a moment.
First thing is equip your office with the right tools. Have athletic shoes, maybe some resistance bands, a set or two of dumbbells, and always utilize office furniture.
Exercises can consist of jumping jacks, push ups, using the resistance bands, running in place, simulating jumping rope (or actually have a jump rope if space permits), tricep dips off chairs, biocep curls, squats, etc. The list is really endless.
So, how do you get 48 minutes of exercise and still get your work done. Every exercise needs to be done for 1-minute. Every 15 minutes you will do one exercise. By days end you will have accomplished 48 minutes of exercise. How cool is that?
Now back to the lunch time workout. If you have an hour lunch, do 30 minutes of exercise. When you are done with your 30 minutes each your lunch while you are cooling down. Then you will be ready to get changed back into your work clothes, and ready to conquer the afternoon.
If you have the ability to add the lunch time workout, you will have a total of 78 minutes of exercise in by the end of your work day. Plus you will feel more energized throughout the day, and after work. Oh, and it is proven that you are more alert and productive when you take breaks from your work for a minute.
So it is a win for your, and your employer.
