As a personal trainer as well as a weight-loss instructor, I’m always answering fitness and health-related queries from my clients via social media and the Start TODAY Group on Facebook. In this article I discuss some of the more frequently asked issues and obstacles that hold people up when they attempt to create a healthy and fitness regimen.
I’m only given 10 minutes for exercise. What is the most effective workout I can do?
As a fitness and health coach, I deal on behalf of clients stretched to time and finding time to do working out is often just another thing on their list of priorities. Many people believe that since they don’t have much time, it’s just not worthwhile to get into an exercise routine. However, I encourage everyone to do whatever they can. And it’s true that a brief exercise every day can be sufficient to ensure your health. When you can exercise for as little as 10 minutes, you will improve your fitness level as well as boost your mood and energy.
One study demonstrated that a 10 minute burst of exercise could boost brain power. A different study revealed that those who did 10 minutes of exercise with a minute of intense intervals showed the same improvement in insulin sensitivity as well as other indicators of cardiometabolic health in comparison to those who exercised at a moderate speed for 45 minutes. The research proves that even 10 minutes of activity could be beneficial.
Another question to ask is the following: If you have only the time for a couple of minutes of exercise What kind of exercise is the best one to choose? It all depends on the goals you have set and how you wish to feel.
There are several common questions I get from my clients how they would like to feel following their exercise. It doesn’t matter if they’re looking to unwind, build an intense sweat, or unleash their the aggression, there’s a workout that can get them there in just a few minutes of work.
Be honest with yourself and talk to yourself about your feelings and what your objectives are to accomplish for today. Choose the type of exercise that can assist you in reaching those goals.
