Between meetings, projects and events at my new job – I am busy! Recently, I came up with a genius (also crazy – but aren’t most good ideas a little crazy) to add a short workout into my daily routine. It has been amazing! I’m squeezing 16-20 minutes of core workouts into my day and I’ve seen great results! My clothes fit better, I can feel my core muscles coming back and I found a workout I always have time to do.
1 minute workout at work
Set your computer to announce a certain amount of time. I have mine announce every hour on the hour. When it announces the time, stop what you are doing and get up to do a one-minute workout. Here is what I’d recommend:
- 1-minute plank (what I’ve been doing lately)
- 1-minute side-plank
- 1-minute of squats
- 1-minute kick-back leg lifts (what I do in the mornings when I’m too sore to move!)
Yes, you’ll probably have to tell your office-mates what you are doing and yes, they will probably laugh at you. It’s worth it. This one-minute workout seems so easy that I don’t mind stopping during the day for a quick break to make it happen. And I love that the computer voice announcement helps me remember easily.
