10 Small Changes You Can Make to Get More Exercise Every Day

  1. Do squats or lunges at your desk or work area
  2. Swap your chair for a large exercise ball
  3. Use the stairs instead of the elevator
  4. Park further away from the entrance to get some extra steps in
  5. Add some incline to your flat treadmill walk
  6. Try planks instead of crunches for more of a total body workout
  7. Do push-ups instead of bicep curls - you’ll work more muscles in the same amount of time (efficiency!)
  8. Do interval workouts to break up your cardio routine
  9. Take a walk at lunch rather than sitting the whole time, especially if you sit for most of the rest of the day
  10. Stretch first thing in the morning when you get out of bed. As you get more comfortable, add in more exercises like pushups or squats.
