For some of us, our jobs help keep us active and moving throughout the day. We’re working on job sites, training people, and a whole slew of other jobs that require constant movement. For other bosses, it might take a bit of an extra push to get to the gym or get outside and moving. Here, we list out a few easy ways to start getting regimented, active, and physical.
Knocking out a quick 10-15 burpees in the morning is a great way to get the blood flowing, help yourself wake up quicker, and get you in an active mindset as you start the day. This won’t involve you setting that alarm back any earlier, but it will require a bit of grit. Good news, if you’re not a burpee kind of boss, you can easily swap in pushups. Same idea. Same impact. Different movement.
A sandbag is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment you can own. The “dead weight” feeling you get when working with a sandbag will remind you of the muscles you didn’t know existed all while taking up little to no space in your home. Grab yourself a sandbag, some sand from Home Depot, and start carrying that thing around.
Boxing is a great way to combine a workout with some stress relief. While this one requires you to grab some extra equipment or find a gym that has the equipment you need, it can make you forget you’re even working out. There’s a plethora of content on the internet, combinations, and workouts you can look up to get you going as well.
