You know those days when you just can’t make it to the gym but really need to squeeze in some exercise? These are our three favorite ways to get moving!
- We absolutely love this 8 minute abs video on YouTube. The groovy host knows just how to keep you motivated and you barely notice the 8 minutes fly by. If you love the video (and the outfits!) as much as we do, follow it up with 8 Minute Arms, 8 Minute Buns and 8 Minute Legs!
- Take a walk and get those 10k steps! These days you don’t even need a fancy pedometer to track your steps. It’s built in on your phone through the Apple Health app. We both use the Pedometer++ app on our iPhones and like it slightly better (mostly it’s an aesthetic thing). If you need extra motivation, treat yourself by walking to a coffee shop (bring your own mug!) or listen to a podcast on the way (check out our favorites over here).
- Desk yoga is a great mini-break to take while you’re at work. Working in some wrist stretches, seated twists, and cat-cows while you’re waiting for coffee to brew or killing 2 minutes in between meetings is a great way to keep your blood flow up throughout the day! Our favorite resources for quick yoga poses are here, here, and here!
