Fitness Gain with Sweat-Free Workouts

Work weeks are busy these days and sometimes rather impossible to fit in a decent workout. Busy mornings, short lunch breaks, and family time at night leave the exercise life empty handed. But, what about a sweat free workout over lunch? This will allow you to get your needed exercise without a shower or a change of clothes. Obviously, by not sweating you are not getting the heart rate up for a good cardio workout, but a short, sweat-free workout is better than no workout.

I feel that eating a quick lunch and then going for a brisk walk to the park or even just around the building is better than driving to a fast food joint; all while loading up on fat and carbohydrates then driving back to the office just to sit around some more. What if you packed a low fat sandwich, a fruit, a veggie, and a healthy beverage at least three days a week and then exercised for the remaining time. Nothing strenuous, just a short, simple, and sweat-free workout.

Here are a few strategies to help you:

1. Take a sack lunch to work and eat it while walking.

2. Eat quickly and hit the stairs for the remaining time.

3. Hit the gym and try the following exercises:

I recommend performing one set of each and then walking for five minutes and then repeating. Take your time and no sweating is allowed!! Good Luck!!

I always called this the Executive workout because all I do is take off my jacket and loosen my tie before going at it. I do this 3 times a week. There is a gym right across from my office, so I go over there during lunch and do a zero-cardio workout- just 15 and 20 lb. weights. I just keep working out until I start to sweat and then I’m done – 10 to 15 mins tops. Since I’m not working that hard, I find it easier to stick to and since I don’t have to spend all that time changing clothing or packing an extra bag in the morning, I really don’t have any excuses. Progress is slow, but over the past year and a half that I’ve been doing it I can say that I’ve noticed a huge difference. When I’m done, I have a slim fast for protein.

Great information, great ideas. My father has always done something at lunch time and he has kept the weight off for a long time.
