1-Minute Exercise Challenge

By  

Don’t see yourself spending hours in the gym? Just seems hard and overwhelming? Start where you’re at, not where you want to be.

Try this: Do something physically challenging for only 1 minute, every day. That alone will just plain feel good. Plus, you’ll feel more confident and inspired to expand your exercise routine down the road.

3 Suggestions for the 1-minute exercise:

1) Squats

Few exercises work as many muscles as the squat, so it’s an excellent multi-purpose activity useful for toning and tightening your behind, abs, and, of course, your legs. Furthermore, squats build your muscles, and these muscles participate in the regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism and insulin sensitivity, helping to protect you against obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

2) Plank

To strengthen your transverse abdominus, lie on your stomach with your palms on the floor. Keep your elbows close to your sides and hands directly under your shoulders. Lift into pushup position, keeping torso and legs stiff. Hold for one minute. For variations, bring your knees to your chest while in plank position, jack the legs in and out or take turns lifting each foot, said Rzesutko. (source)

3) Burpees

Burpees make your body a fat burning machine. That’s because since burpees are an intense fully body exercise, they burn a shitload of calories. Plus, research shows that high intensity exercises like burpees burn up to 50% more fat than moderate exercising. And better yet, they speed up your metabolism throughout the day—meaning you’ll burn more calories all day long, even after your burpee hell is over. So if you want to lose weight, ditch the recumbent bike and elliptical machine—and do some burpees instead. (source)
