How To Fit In Exercise During Nap Time

There are so many things that we can do during naptime that sometimes it feels we can be a little spoiled for choice. However, if there is no set sleeping pattern and no set time that they’re asleep for, it can be hard to know how much time that you have to work with. This is especially hard when you are planning to fit in a work out; it can feel like you’re only just getting into something before it’s time to pack it all away and call it a day. So what can we actually do which will give the right effect on limited time?

Spinning

There’s probably little chance that you’ll be able to get to a spin class during nap time, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t create your own. First, you’ll need to get a spin bike; reading recommendations at https://bodygearguide.com/best-spinning-bike-reviews/ may be able to help if you don’t know where to start with your search. Ideally you’ll want something that is compact but is easy to put up and down so you can get started with ease and put it away safely when you’re done. Depending on how hard you’re pushing yourself, you can expect to burn between 400 and 600 calories an hour with a good spin session.

 

Yoga

This is such an amazing working for your balance, as well as strengthening your core – and it can all be done in the comfort of your own home with little more than a yoga mat. The great thing about the mats is that they can be rolled up and stored away without taking up too much room. There are poses that can be learned from YouTube videos and tutorials online, and even just a few seconds in one position can be doing a lot for your flexibility and inner strength.

 

Dance DVDs

Celebrity-endorsed workout DVDs are gaining more and more popularity, with different exercises being generated for different body types. You only have to do a quick search on Amazon to find one that will suit your needs.

 

Household Chores

There are more benefits to doing chores than getting your home clean and tidy. You are also burning calories from the effort that you are putting in. You could burn the same amount of calories by doing 30 minutes of vigorous vacuuming that you would be doing in 15 minutes of kickboxing – a more comprehensive guide can be found at http://www.fitday.com/fitness-articles/fitness/weight-loss/calories-burned-doing-household-chores.html as to how much each chore equates to in terms of calorie burning. In effect, you are multitasking to the max during naptime if you’re managing to fit in both a workout and cleaning your house in limited time, so why not cut out the middleman and combine them both? It does mean doing things at more than a leisurely pace, but this also means that you will be getting stuff done a lot quicker than you would usually. There are only benefits to this.
