How to Get Fit Without Sweating ?
1: The ‘Brazilian Movement’.
The advantage of this move is that you don’t need to go to the gym to do it, you don’t even need to find time in your day.
Because you’ll make this move while you brush your teeth!
How does it work?
Stand upright in your bathroom, bend your knees slightly.
Tilt your hips forward while contracting them, then pull them backwards.
Don’t forget to apply very strong pressure when you finish the forward movement.
As you brush your teeth at least twice a day, this represents 6 minutes of Brazilian movement per day.
In addition to a healthy diet, this will guarantee you a nice behind for this summer, yes!
2: Use your hands!
There are some tasks you’d better do by hand!
For example, doing the dishes by hand will allow you to burn 78 calories per half hour…..
Knowing that a pound is about 3,500 calories, and assuming you do the dishes half an hour over 45 days, you will have lost 1 pound without knowing it…. (translated over a year, that’s about 8 pounds!)
3: How to do your 60 minutes of accumulated exercise a day.
The general surgeon’s orders are to do 60 minutes of physical exercise per day (which can be divided into 6 small steps without problem).
In addition to burning calories, walking allows you to develop the large muscles of the lower body.
Muscle tissue consumes more calories to maintain than fat, even at rest.
Again, you don’t have to take a 60-minute walk if you don’t like it.
You can cut it in 4 to 15 minutes of walking:
- one at home when you wake up ( it will also help you wake up even better)
- two at lunchtime to go home and back (just choose a place 15 minutes from your office)
- one mid-afternoon to help you stay focused until the end of the day.
4: Control your food desires by being proactive!
Your body produces endorphins when you do aerobics exercises – which means you need to increase your heart rate for at least 20 minutes.
Aerobic exercise produces endorphins, body chemicals that cause feelings of euphoria and pleasure. These are the same chemicals produced in response to the consumption of fatty or sugary foods.
5: Improve your posture
This is a great exercise to improve your posture, allowing you to be in top shape when you walk, when you are on the beach, when you enter a business meeting room.
On a yoga mat, stand up straight.
Breathe several times: inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale slowly.
Tuck your toes in and push them back into a crouching position, with your fingertips slightly touching the ground.
Drop your chin so it’s relaxed towards your chest.
Slowly rise from the crouching position by pushing your heels towards the ground until your torso hangs up and down.
Keep your knees slightly bent and aligned in the center of each foot.
Breathe, relax the top of your body and hang like a rag.
Inhale in this position.
Exhale when you start your power plant and slowly climb upright.
When standing, stretch your knees with your arms relaxed to the sides.
Inhale again, and as you exhale, slowly get up to balance yourself on the soles of your feet.
Breathe, release your shoulders and maintain this balance for several seconds.
You can do this exercise 3 times each time you complete a workout.
Reading this text may seem complicated; I suggest you print this advice, take it with you wherever you do your exercises, do it once with the paper and, once you understand the movement, do it again without reading it.
6: Easy abs in packs of 6
I’ve been doing 100 abs a day since I was a teenager. So I have a pack of 6 without having to sweat during the abs sessions at the gym.
Those who know my approach to body strengthening know that I am a ‘crazy’ person when it comes to getting in shape.
How long does it take to get 100 abs? Depending on the movement and speed at which you make them, it will take you between 90 seconds and 3 minutes.
It is hard if it is possible to do them in an instant!
You don’t actually need to warm up before such a short session. So you can decide when you do them without having to rearrange your day around this very, very short session.
Suggestions per day:
20 straight abs (your hand supports your head, it doesn’t lift it).
20 straight abs with a one-second stop at mid-height.
40 bike movements alternating right elbow/left knee and left elbow/right knee.
20 seconds in the V-Pilates position: you lean on your buttocks in a balanced position with your legs outstretched and arms stretched straight and parallel to the legs.
This sequence allows the work of the deep abdominals (V-Pilates), the superficial abdominals (crunch), and the obliques (bike) every day.
7: short is good!
As part of My Secret Coach’s weight loss program, mini exercises(or MetaBoost as I call them) can do wonders for those who don’t want to sweat for hours in a gym.
“Something is really better than nothing. If I come and I can train vigorously for 30 minutes, I will consider trying,” said Dr. William L. Haskell, a practicing researcher, and professor of medicine at Stanford University. Express workouts usually require only one set of 8 to 12 repetitions instead of the 2-3 sets of 8 to 16 repetitions that physiologists recommend for optimal training. “Copyright the Associated Press – 12/15/2003
Nevertheless, these MetaBoost workouts should come in addition to the recommended 60 minutes of daily exercise.
8: 10,000 steps a day will keep the doctor away!
Invest in a pedometer and make sure you take those famous 10,000 steps I’ve brainwashed you in the last few weeks!
The 10, 000 steps start when you wake up. Wear your pedometer to the waist all the time.
10,000 – 3 miles – about 300 calories (slightly less than a bagel).
Take advantage of every opportunity to walk: choose your lunch place 10 minutes further, get off the bus 1 stop before, take a 5-minute break every hour or so and make a ‘walk’ departure. Everything counts to achieve this daily goal.
You won’t lose weight (which is not really enough) but you will prevent the accumulation of new pounds and you will improve your overall health.
You don’t have to sweat!
9: Invisible Chair Day
Whenever you are alone, sit against a wall without a chair and hold the position for a minute. Try to do this 3 times a day. This counts as a strength exercise and will help you shape beautiful thighs. Don’t hesitate to apply this advice on other days too!
Tip 10: how to get a really flat stomach without making the abs work
Every time you walk, think about sucking your belly (lower and upper). This will work the deep abdominal muscles that NO crunch work can achieve. This will help you get a REALLY flat belly. You don’t have to sweat!
