Today’s tip comes to you straight from the American Heart Association. We love this idea because it mentions cardio boxing. Here’s what they had to say:
The American Heart Association knows that Americans love television. They also know Americans need more exercise. So why not combine the two, they ask?
Try dancing to the music when you tune into your favorite music show or practice some stress-relieving cardio boxing (we assume they mean shadow boxing) when your least favorite reality contestant is on camera.
During commercials pedal your stationery bike, walk on the treadmill or slip in a little strength training doing bicep curls with cans of your favorite fizzy beverage as weights.
It doesn’t matter exactly what you do, so long as you’re up and active. Aim for at least 15 minutes, says the AHA. But who knows? If you get really engrossed, you just might outlast the guys on The Ultimate Fighter Live!
