Too Tired, Too Busy, or Too Bored to Work Out?
Whatever your excuse is for skipping exercise, one of these plans will get you moving.
Feel like you don't ever have time for a proper workout? Robert Kram, personal-training manager at the Reebok Sports Club in New York City offers these solutions.
- Take more brisk walking breaks during the workday.
- Do belly braces throughout the day. Draw in your navel as close to your spine as you can without holding your breath and hold until you can’t anymore. You can do this anytime and anyplace―while waiting in line, driving, or sitting in a meeting. This simple move will help strengthen your abs, improve your posture, and flatten your stomach.
- Add a 10-minute strengthening routine in the morning. In the course of a few months, you should build up to 15 minutes, then 20. These exercises will help you feel and look more toned (see The Strength-Training Routine, on the next slide).
