I know that exercise has 8 letters in it but I have always considered it to be somewhat of a 4 letter word. The reason why this is the case is because exercise has always been something that is very inconvenient for me to do.
I don’t know about you but I have a life outside of the time that I spend in the gym. As a matter of fact, I rarely find my way over to the gym in the first place because I tend to keep myself a little bit too busy with too many things. That doesn’t mean, however, that I don’t like to stay in shape. I just use other ways to do so.
The easiest way for you to stay in shape is to get a little bit of exercise that is somewhat effortless and unnoticed. Although it is still going to take a little bit of time, you can usually do these exercises in the privacy of your own home and on your own schedule. As a matter of fact, some of the effortless exercises that I do take me less time than it take me to drive over to the gym in the first place. This is able to save me a lot of time and in most cases I don’t sweat to the extent where I need to get cleaned up after I am finished. So, i won’t be wasting much time.
The main way that I get exercise is through stretching. Have you ever seen how lean and fit a gymnast is? Although they may do a variety of different exercises and they certainly do get their cardiovascular workout in on a regular basis, a lot of their fitness comes from stretching. They may spend hours every week stretching out every last muscle in their body in order to remain limber and to be able to do some of the acrobatics that they do. They have to be extremely fit in order to do those stunts.
You can achieve the same results by stretching on a regular basis yourself. YOU can do it practically anywhere. Even getting up every hour from the desk and stretching your neck and back will help you to stay fit. Having a regular regime of stretching is not only effortless, it feels great and it can go a long way in helping to lengthen your muscles and to make you look good as well. So the next time you think about hitting the gym, do a little bit of stretching instead. You will benefit as a result of what you are doing and you will not have to expend all of the effort in order to do it.
