Dumbbells are another good investment for a quick exercise routine. Get a range of weights and a storage rack, but make sure that they are stored safely away from children, who should NEVER play with them. Learn a quick dumbbell routine for the arms, back and shoulders. Personally I love bicep curls – they make me feel powerful! Find your favorite exercise and schedule it into your day.
Easy at home workouts can also include an energetic five minute stint of housework. This can break your work routine and, if you do it energetically enough – can be part of your fitness regime! I try to make these little spurts of housework into a time challenge and I schedule them into my day. A five minute sweep, vacuum or mop, if done energetically, can count towards your daily exercise and make you feel virtuous and house-proud too!
