Exercise is important not only for losing weight or shaping your body to boost your confidence; it is also important for your health. As a result, experts advise moving a little bit every day. Ideally, you should aim for 30 minutes of physical activity per day, but any amount of exercise is preferable to none!
What is the Fitness Snack?
The “Fitness Snack” is a 30-minute workout that is broken down into short 5 or 10 minute sessions throughout the day. You can do 5 minutes in the morning, 5 minutes during your lunch break, 5 minutes during a work break, 5 minutes when you get home, and 5 minutes before bed with relaxation or flexibility exercises. These are not necessarily strenuous exercises; a simple walk be a “Fitness Snack.”
This additional activity will help you burn more calories than if you sat still. It can also help you clear your mind, reduce stress, and reach a good health. 7000 steps are sufficient to reap the greatest benefits, stay in shape, and maintain health (walking at a moderate pace, you can do about 1000 steps in 10 minutes). Because these are short sequences, you can incorporate a variety of movements, ensuring that you get some flexibility, strength, and cardio in the same day.
Above all, remember that science recommends 150 to 300 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week, or 75 to 150 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise per week. So don’t be satisfied with “fitness snacks” instead, but alternate with longer routines on a regular basis.
