Last year I wrote about the microworkout idea.
And it’s something that is definitely worth revisiting now considering the way our cards have been dealt of late.
If you’re not familiar with the term, a microworkout is simply a bit of exercise thrown into whenever you get a chance when you’re at home.
So perfect for right now.
Say you’re waiting for the kettle to boil, do squats while you’re waiting.
Got a short break between zoom meetings?
That’s time for 10 push ups.
Maybe you could even incorporate it into your team meeting depending on who you work with?
I don’t know I’m just throwing that out there.
But I do know that a microworkout right now is going to help you with a bit of stress release.
And think about it this way if you’re thinking a minute doesn’t do much.
Add up a few microworkouts over the course of a day and you can see how it starts to add up.
Once again, as I always say, something is better than nothing.
So some squats in the minute it takes for the kettle to boil.
10 push ups between calls or after you’ve had a toilet break.
Stand up from your chair and do a lap walking around the house to stretch your legs and your back.
A hover hold for a minute before you stop for lunch.
You get the picture yeah?
It starts to add up.
Especially if you’re doing it most days – or even every day.
It’ll pass your time and help keep your sanity.
And then when you get your regular workout in, assuming you can still get those in too, then it’s a win-win for everyone.
You may even come out of this period stronger and fitter than you’ve ever been.
Who says no?
