3 Micro-Workouts To Get You Moving TODAY

Reality is life is busy and finding a chunk of time to dedicate to working out isn’t always possible. Here’s where micro workouts – short bursts of movement spread out in your day – can end up being even more effective then stead-state exercise in the long run. I recently did a Facebook Live in our Move Eat Play Health and Fitness Community on the benefits of micro-workouts and how to add them into your daily routine.

Are you ready to get realistic with your movement goals and make some realistic exercise progression? Here’s three micro- workouts to start with this week:

Kitchen Lung Buster
Before you make a meal or snack (your cue to move) commit to completing the following sequence. It’s likely you will get in 3-6 (or 20 if you have snack monsters like my kid at home lol) in a day:

  • Squats for 40 seconds
  • Rest for 20 seconds
  • Pushups for 40 seconds
  • Rest for 20 seconds
  • Mountain Climbers for 40 seconds
  • Rest for 20 seconds

Garage Strong Bod
Everytime you go outside commit to completing the following in your garage:

  • Dumbbell Front Squat
  • Dumbbell Press
  • Dumbbell Bent Over Row
  • Rest 60 seconds
    (Repeat 4 times)

Stair Leg Burner
Everytime you go to use the bathroom, grab a kettlebell and complete the following:

  • Stair run with kettlebell
  • 10X goblet squats
  • Walk down with kettlebell
    Repeat 2-6 times (depending on how many flights you have)

Recondition the way you think about movement. Adding in bursts through out your day can have huge benefits. Find your routine and stay consistent. And don’t forget to report back in our Move Eat Play Community group to let us know how it is going!!
