Alternative exercises

Postby Amethyst » Sun Mar 15, 2009 5:45 pm

Hi

My main problem with my weight is that I don't go out and do much as I'm busy studying and stuff. Plus my DVD player is broken so my exercise DVDs are void. anyone know of exercise that's varied and easy? Besides walking :lol: I have focus issues unfortunately.

Do you have some old phone books lying around? You can either tape them together or wrap them in a towel for stability. Viola! An instance aerobic step! Just put on some music and step away.

Another option is to do exercise videos online. SparkPeople have heaps of video files which you could follow (LINK).

Good luck!

Why do "alternative" exercise, just go for the basics.

When i first started to loose weight my trainer gave me a simple and easy plan to follow. Find out what your maximum is for push ups/ sit ups. Once you know get the 60% of max. Start on a monday doing 60% of your max on push up/sit up every morning when you wake up. Then every monday after that add 2. So say week 1 you do 10. Means week 2 is 12, week 3 is 14, etc.... Every 4 weeks add in a new exercise following the same pattern. Very quickly you'll get improved tone/endurance. within a few short months you'll have slowly worked your way to a full workout with little effort. Worked wonders for me.
