It's beneficial to work out in small bursts because it raises and lowers your heart rate all throughout the day. This speeds up metabolism and keeps your body guessing what comes next.

If you don't have time to exercise 20-40 minutes straight a day or you just don't like to sit for extended periods of time, try exercising around the house in between other chores or while watching TV.

Five Ways To Work Out At Home In Small Bursts.

1. Waiting for the water to boil. Any time you are cooking you have the opportunity to exercise. Try body weight squats and calf raises. If you have a corner spot on the counter, lift your weight off the floor and do knee raises.

2. Watching TV. This could not be a more perfect time to get in few sets! Try push ups, crunches or outer thigh raises on the floor.

3. On the phone. Who hasn't snacked while talking on the phone with a friend? Instead try walking up and down the stairs or step ups on one stair. You can also stretch on the bed or sofa.

4. Cleaning the house can be a great moderate activity and depending on how often you clean, can be a pretty long workout too! Try picking up the pace and every time you bend down to pick something up, do a squat or lunge to get to it.

5. At the home office. Set yourself up with a couple dumbbells or resistance tubes to do bicep curls and other strength exercises while you are stuck on a problem or waiting for a call. It is even better to get a bench and full gym to do work and workout intervals.

Exercising at home is easy if you slowly add new exercises in to your schedule. When you are ready for full routines add together all you have done separately throughout the day, for a challenging full body routine. Be creative and use stable chairs, steps and even your coffee table for at home exercises that will get you in to great shape.

      Waiting for the water to boil -> I prepare other food, washing vegetables, chop onions... The meal should be ready as soon as possible.
      Watching TV: I only watch movie, practicing is very distracting.
      On the phone: wanting weird sound on the phone? And btw, I rarely talking on the phone for a long time.
      Cleaning the house is exercise for me
      At the home office: I agree with it, but not many people work from home :(
      Use public transport. Use the stairs. Spend 5 mins before bath, in the morning... is more suitable for me.

      I always choose open place for the exercise. Because I love fresh air and always meditate with the nature. I practice meditation daily in the early morning and it helps to reduce stress and boost your self confidence.
