How to stay in shape with minimal exercise?

It is important to include exercise as part of your weekly schedule. Adding this will set a reminder for you everyday.

However, not everyone uses a planner, including me. In that case, you just have to get into a routine of your daily schedule and making sure you plan at least 1.5 hours for exercise.

Research suggest weightlifting at least 3 times per week. You can alternative these days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). Therefore, Tuesdays and Thursdays can be used for cardiovascular workouts, like running, soccer, and swimming.

In reality, life never goes the way you plan. So be prepared for changes. The days or weeks you can’t go to a gym, you can stay in shape doing minimal exercises.

These exercises can be done at home. It includes: 50 push-ups, 50 sits-up, 50 high knees, 50 jumping jacks, 50 squats, 40 lunges, 3 x 1 minute planks, 3 x 1 minute leg raises, 50 knee pull-ups, 50 crunches, and 50 bicycle crunches. You can alternative any of these exercises but it is important to finish all between 20-30 minutes.
