6 Exercises You Can Do At the Gym and in Everyday Life

The goal this year is to step up, and that includes fitness. Not everybody likes going to the gym. Personally, we think people who go to the gym every day have their lives all sorted out. If you’re like the rest of us that don’t have the strength or time to step into that sweat dungeon, here are five exercises you can do at the gym and also in your everyday life.

Squats 

Squats can easily be done anytime and anywhere. You can squat while cooking, carrying grocery bags, doing your next work task (depending on what it is) while watching TV etc. 

Jumping Jacks 

If you want to burn a lot of calories quickly, do jumping jacks. You don’t even have to do too many With about 200 jumping jacks, you’re good. Now imagine having to leave your house for something you can do in the comfort of your living room. This also applies to jump rope exercises. 

Dance 

You can never go wrong with dancing. Out of your 1-hour lunch break, take 20 minutes to play loud music and dance your heart out. Do you know how many calories you can burn by doing leg work alone? The elliptical can never compare. 

Walk

You can choose to walk around your compound or take a walk around your neighbourhood if you have the time. it’s definitely more interesting and fascinating than walking on a basic ass treadmill. 

Climb Stairs 

No stair master? No problem. if you set aside just 10-15 minutes of your day to go up and down any flight of steps, you can burn more than 100 calories. Taking the stairs is a great aerobic exercise, not to mention, it’s free. No gym membership fee whatsoever.

 

Sit Down 

Working out is not a must, please. Some of us are okay with our lazy selves, we’d rather just wake up, go to the couch, sit down and watch some TV.

If there are people out there like us, (which we know there are), thankfully, DStv has got you covered this month. With the StepUp Boost offer, both active and disconnected subscribers can enjoy the opportunity to pay less to enjoy an exciting lineup of world-class quality entertainment.
