10 workout hacks

workoutin

Maintaining that gym routine can be a pain in the neck. Since we are on your side, here are 10 workout hacks to keep you on your toes outside the gym.

1. Get it out of your way

You are likely to be less busy in the morning, so use that period to start your workout. That way you won’t need to make excuses as to why you can’t train later on in the day.

2. Keep it brief

Long workouts that are not done properly are as useful as a fork, in a sugar bowl. Instead, opt for a short but intense workout.

3. On the floor

That’s right, you can lie on the floor and still train. It is not as great as lying in bed, but at least you are still on your back and getting a workout.

4. A gift from you

Reward yourself for your hard work. Grab yourself a snack, watch TV, buy new workout gear, etc. Do whatever motivates or relaxes you.

5. Change your journey

Ride your bike to work. Take the steps instead of the escalators. Walk for a portion of your journey, especially if it is a short bus ride. Burn some calories by making yourself more active.

6. Drink up

Water is a great way to help your body burn fat. When you are hydrated, there is less room for laziness.

7. Get help

If you can’t do it all on your own, join different training classes or hire a personal trainer who will encourage you and give you expert advice.

8. The innocent snacks

The right snack will boost your energy and give you that drive to run through your workout in 10 minutes. If you want to see a difference, try a protein smoothie, fruit oatmeal or Greek yoghurt.

9. Stay caffeinated

If you are not in the mood to exercise, all that can change with a little sip of coffee. Also, don’t underestimate the power of the natural herbs in green tea; it contains caffeine as well as being beneficial to health.

10. More bedtime

This is the part you will enjoy the most: sleep. You need at least seven hours every night to be fully energised, but feel free to push it to nine if you want.
