4 Easy exercises that can be done during your lunch break
If you do not like to wake up early in the morning to get a workout in or you feel too tired after work to even function, then try to squeeze a super quick workout in during your lunch break. Incorporating a workout in to your lunch break can be brief, try fitting in a 5 to 30 min workout to begin.
The workouts provided in this blog can be done anywhere. If you do not have time to go home or to the gym and the only way of getting a workout in is by staying at the office, these workouts will work for you. The only thing you will need is your exercise clothes and shoes. If you ever forget your shoes all of these exercises can be done barefoot too.
You will be performing each of the exercises below for 2 minutes, taking a 30 second break after each exercise.
Do as many reps as possible in 2 minutes:
1. Bodyweight squats
Start standing with feet just slightly wider than hip-width apart. Sit your butt back into a squat, without letting your knees go past your toes. Make sure your weight is in your heels, and keep your chest up.
2. Push ups
Start in high plank with your hands about shoulder-width apart. Bend your arms and lower your chest as close to the floor as you can. Push back up to a plank.
3. High knees (you can either do jumping high knees or stationary)
Start in high plank with your feet hip-distance apart. Now rotate your entire body to the right into a side plank with your left shoulder above your left wrist. Extend your right arm to the ceiling and continue to drive your hips up. Return your right arm down to high plank.
4. Standing oblique crunches
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and hands behind your head and elbows wide. Lift your left knee toward your left elbow while you bend your torso up and over to the left. Bring your left foot back to standing and repeat on the other side, lifting your right knee towards your right elbow.
