Jumpstart Your Workout Routine with Daily Push-ups
One can greatly benefit from a habit of daily push-ups. As a writer who spends so much time in the office every day putting together articles and such, I sometimes find myself sitting down too long. People who work office jobs go through the same thing, but it’s not healthy to sit down for long periods. In fact, you should be getting up walking around doing something at least every 30 or 40 minutes.
A Necessary Break from Work
Time can fly by sitting at a desk in front of that computer screen, and before you know it a whole hour can pass and you won’t realize it. That’s why you should get into a routine of doing something active throughout the day if you work a job where you sit down a lot.
Personally, every other hour I do 20 push-ups. You’ll be surprised how many calories you can burn and how tight your muscles are going to remain just by doing this every 90 to 120 minutes throughout the day. In the morning when I wake up, I do 20. Then, around 10 a.m. after writing a couple of articles, I do 20 more. By the end of the day, I’ve actually done a hundred push-ups for an excellent arm workout.
It isn’t that hard getting toned. You’ll be surprised how much more definition your shoulders and chest will have by systematically keeping them active like this. Not only will your muscles be stronger and more defined, but you’ll feel way more energetic all day long. You can do this with other exercises, too. For example, if you don’t want to do push-ups every time, you could do 20 squats every couple of hours. If you work in an office environment with coworkers, some of them might even join in with you!
You won’t get sweaty in your work clothes because you’re stretching the exercises out all day long with long breaks in between. After the first couple of weeks of doing this, you’ll notice your daily push-ups giving you a healthy boost in your body’s mental and physical energy, I guarantee it.
