Simple Exercises to Stay Fit

Exercising every day is important if you want to have a healthy body. When most of the jobs we do are sedentary, it is very important that we start doing some exercises every day so that we don’t become overweight. If you are busy with work and don’t have the time to go to a gym, these few tips will help you exercise and stay fit.

Walk-Out Push-Ups
The walk-out push-up targets multiple muscle groups and accelerates the heart rate. Stand with your feet apart (hip width distance) and slowly bend forward from the hips and stretch your hands to the floor. Once your hands touch the floor, begin to walk your hands forward until you are in the push-up position. Do one full push-up and walk your hands back again towards your feet, slowly rolling your spine up until you are back in the standing position. Don’t get discouraged if you cannot complete it the first time. Keep working at it and you will be able to perform the exercise.

Standard Squats
Stand upright with your weight evenly distributed on both your feet, keep your back straight and your chest high, and engage the glutes as you perform squats. Squats are great for the glutes, and legs. You can do squats anywhere – at the office, garden or home – without having to go to the gym.

Jumping Jacks
Jumping Jacks are an old exercise that has made its way back into the fitness world. Plyometric exercises are great when it comes to functional fitness. Because people wear shoes most of the time, the neurotransmitters in the feet become sedentary. An activity like jumping jacks can awaken them and help benefit various muscle groups in the body. Jumping jacks are also great if you are looking for a nice cardio workout.
