Your body needs a lot of exercises to stay fit and agile. You probably do not want to have to go long hours at the gym and spend most of your day there. Well, then we have great news for you. You can do some exercises in just 10 minutes and get fit and healthy in no time.
Here are some 10-minute exercises that can help you keep fit and stay healthy without having to go to the gym or get a trainer:
Cardio, short for cardiovascular exercise, is any movement that increases your heart rate and blood circulation like spinning, running, swimming, walking, hiking, aerobics, dancing, cross country skiing, and kickboxing.
2. Take a 10-minute walk during your lunch break
Walk up and down the stairs at work for 5 minutes. It will help you work off some of the stress of the day by exercising to your favourite music for 10 minutes. Try making use of up to 3 songs.
3. Do strengthening exercises for 10 minutes
- Start your day with 10 minutes of strengthening exercises like lunges and bicep curls.
- While watching TV, slowly and carefully lift and lower weights for 10 minutes. Use dumbbells, barbells, or whatever weights you have on hand, such as water bottles or bricks.
- You can also do 10 minutes of squats or calf raises to strengthen lower-body muscles.
4. Stretch for 10 minutes a day
While sitting in your office, classroom or wherever you find yourself, try to change position and stretch for 10 minutes at least once a day. Two times a day is even better to improve overall fitness.
After a walk, add 10 minutes of your favourite stretches to improve flexibility and balance.

5. The Up, Up, Down, Down Plank
Start in a modified plank position on your forearms, palms facing down. ‘Walk’ your left hand in, placing it under your shoulder and pressing your body up. Walk your right hand in so that you end up in a full plank position with both arms straight.
Quickly lower your left elbow down to the floor, and then your right, so you’re back in your elbow plank. Repeat 5 times in a row leading with your left arm, and then 5 leading with your right.
6. Do the Scissor Skier
You can do this even before you leave home for the office. Stand tall with your feet together, arms by your sides. Jump up and bring your left foot forward and your right foot back as you reach your right arm up and your left arm back. Land softly and then immediately jump again, switching your feet and arms in a scissor motion as quickly as possible. Continue switching until you’ve completed 20.
