If you’re looking for easy exercises you can do at home with no equipment, you have come to the right place. And the good thing is, you don’t have to spend an hour working out. Experts recommend 20 to 30 minutes of fast and effective ways to exercise five times a week. With busy day-to-day lives, making time to work out can fall by the wayside. You can, however, try “exercise snacking”.
“This is about breaking down your exercise into five-minute stints over a day,” says personal trainer Angela Loannou. “The science behind it shows that a few shorter bursts allows you to fit them into your schedule, and can be beneficial in controlling blood sugar levels. It’s also been proven to reduce stress. When you work out for too long your body’s stress hormone, cortisol, begins to rise. This can encourage destruction of muscle tissue rather than growth.”
Angela’s 10 fast and effective ways to exercise can be done with limited space and next to no equipment. When done together, they will work every muscle in your body and give you the same benefits as a 30-minute gym class.
