Online Lifestyle Magazine for Healthcare Workers by Pulse Uniform

Gym-Free Guide in Losing Weight

I just can’t go off for the day without sharing with you some good things that I came across. Perhaps, you’ve browsed through the news once in a while to see what’s going on in our world. Me, I did. And as I scroll down to pick worth-reading topics, obesity and food nutrition seem to stick around for a few weeks straight already. Although I weigh fairly for my weight and age, the news still strikes me. So I checked on some health magazine to see what I can do to improve my weight and health. Here’s what I got – 30 Minute Workout, No Gym Required – the speedy workout to burn megacalories!

Burn 350 calories in 30 minutes every other day

Toast 250 calories on alternate days

2000 calories kicked off in a week!

Those healthcare workers in large medical uniforms, employees who are no longer comfortable in their tight office uniforms, people who can’t fit in their summer outfits, you can all benefit from this speedy workout.

Jumping jacks

Do jumping jacks for 2 minutes. Most of the exercises are easy, so you can even teach this to your kids for them to be also health conscious. 3 Steps to Win Over Childhood Obesity

Side lunge careful

Stand holding 5 to 8-pound dumbbells. Step right leg out to side and bend knee to 90 degrees, reaching hands down on either side of right foot. Push off right foot to return to standing with right foot directly in front of left foot, arms sweeping up with palms facing in. Repeat on left side with left foot stepping behind right as you return to center; that’s 1 rep. Do 24 reps, then switch lead legs and repeat. It looks like a long instruction but simple when done.

Dancing Squat

Now, this should be fun. Stand with right foot forward, a 5- to 8-pound weight in left hand. Squat; touch weight to floor as right hand lifts. Stand, lift left knee, touch right hand to right left in front of you. Squat then stand; touch right hand to left foot behind you; that’s 1 rep. Do 24 reps; switch sides and repeat.

Line Hops

Step or hop sideways over a stretched-out jump rope for 2 minutes. Just tell your daughter she can use the jump rope after you’re done.

Tipsy bridge and lift

Lie on your back, feet hip-width apart, flexed left foot on a yoga block or telephone book, right foot on the floor. Keeping shoulders and head neutral and abs tight, lift hips so your body forms a straight line from shoulders to knees. Lower down, then lift right foot, bringing knee in toward chest. Return foot to floor; that’s 1 rep. Do 24 reps, then switch sides and repeat. Don’t push too hard when your weight or body isn’t fit for this kind of position.

Biceps and arm circles

Stand with legs slightly wider than hip-width, a 5- to 8-pound dumbbell in each hand, elbows bent and palms up. Keeping spine straight, squat and circle left hand up and in toward your shoulder in a circular motion (as if beckoning someone toward you); reverse to lower hand. Do 16 reps, then switch sides and repeat.

Fast Feet

Step quickly forward and backward over a stretched-out jump rope for 2 minutes. This also works for your cardiovascular system for an improved heart function. Workout and eating the right food will curb weight and keep cholesterol low. Eat More Nuts, Keep Cholesterol Low; A Recipe for Your Heart

Triceps with a twist

Lie on back with knees bent, a 5- to 8-pound dumbbell in right hand lifted so weight is over shoulder. Let knees fall left while bending right elbow until end of weight touches floor near ear. Straighten right arm while lifting hips, legs, head, and shoulders. Lower gently down. Do 24 reps, then switch sides and repeat. Be careful not to hurt your neck as this exercise also puts pressure to this particular part of the body.

Roll over and sit up

Start lying on stomach, chest lifted, arms stretched overhead, and legs straight. Roll to right onto your back, bending knees slightly and bringing arms halfway down; curl up to sitting position as arms move back overhead. Curl back down, and roll back over onto stomach. Do 16 reps, then switch directions and repeat. Use a yoga mat to contain sweat, for at this time your sweat is surely dripping already.

Cross crawl

Raise your arms, then lift left knee and bring right elbow down to meet it. Repeat on opposite side; alternate for 2 minutes, moving as quickly as possible. That’s it. You’re done!

It seems that the world is getting more conscious about health and diet, and the media is making much noise to publicize the issues related. Study on curbing weight gain through biking minutes a day, suggestions of walking briskly, and regulations on salt content on commercial food are just a few things you will find in the health news and health topics. Whether or not you are affected by the publicities, you still are affected by your own judgments and habits. And I hope that what we just discussed would help you make improvements.
