5 Workout Infographics For You To Exercise At Home On Weekdays

Hit the gym or crash on the couch? Don’t make the wrong decision, no matter how busy you are. It’s a hard choice after a hectic day in the office, but even the busiest people can find time to exercise every single day of the week.

With these five infographics, you can learn some simple workouts which help you to tone a variety of muscle groups without gym equipment. That means you can work out every day of the week for free in the comfort of your own home.

Whether you are trying to lose that winter puppy fat in time for summer, or you just want to maintain your general fitness, exercise during the week is vital for your health.

Regular exercise improves cardiovascular health, reduces fat, prevents depression and generally contributes toward self esteem and well being.

The most common excuse people make for not exercising regularly is that they don’t have enough time. That’s why we’ve compiled these five simple infographics, with quick workouts that can be done anywhere anytime.

The workouts start off nice and easy but they get progressively harder. You’ll find them easier the more you do them, so don’t be afraid to up the ante if you’re not getting results. There’s one for each day of the week, which means there’s no excuse not to keep fit everyday!

Monday: 7 Minute Workout

You don’t need to sweat it for hours to be healthy. Studies show that as little as half an hour of intermittent high-intensity exercise per week can significantly reduce blood levels, which is particularly good news for people with type 2 diabetes.

Some of these exercises are pretty intense, but you only need to do them for 30 seconds each. The trick to this workout is not resting in-between exercises, go full power for the whole seven minutes.

    Tuesday: 20 Minute Cardio and Strength Training

    Time to step it up a notch. Today’s workout is longer but less intense. This carefully tailored combination of cardio and strength training will get your heart pumping and your blood flowing in no time at all.

    The whole set takes ten minutes and you need to do it twice. It’s fine to take a breather between sets if you need to.

      Wednesday: Body weight Workout

      Who needs expensive weights when you can get great results with body-weight exercises? Calves, thighs, glutes, core and triceps will all feel the burn after this midweek session.

      Forget the gym; you can do all these exercises in your living room after work. This ones a long one, so put half an hour aside for it.

        Thursday: Plankathon

        Time to punish those abs. Thursday is core day; are you ready for the plankathon? This is another high intensity workout. You need about 10 minutes to get through 2 rounds of the 12 exercises. Each exercise requires 30 seconds of intense exertion followed by a maximum of 10 seconds rest before the next one.

        You should warm down by stretching after completing the work out, as your torso should be pretty tender when you’ve finished. This is guaranteed to get your abs burning and your stomach looking great in time for summer.

          Friday: Quad Crush

          Finish off the week with a quick workout to target your quadriceps. Two of these exercises will massively increase your thigh strength while the push ups will work your pectorals and arms.

          This workout is also all about high intensity in a short time. Just go at it as hard as you can for 10 minutes. The more rounds of the 3 exercises you can complete, the better. If you’re finding it too easy then try holding a medium weight dumbbell or kettlebell in front of your chest during the wall sits.

            10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

            10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

            A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

            To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

            1. Camping

            A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

            2. Staycation

            You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

            3. Island Getaway

            People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

            4. Fancy Resort

            Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

            5. Road Trip

            The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

            6. Charter a Boat

            If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

            7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

            If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

            Advertising

            8. Themed Retreats

            There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

            9. Working Honeymoon

            Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

            10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

            Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
