It’s not always easy to integrate more physical activity into your intermittent fasting routine. However, workouts are a great way to support your fasting success.
By combining exercise and intermittent fasting, you not only improve your posture, keep yourself young and promote fat burning. You also actively enhance your mental performance. So physical activity pays off in many ways!
Here are a few ideas on how you can consciously become more active in your everyday life.
1. Every step counts.
When you walk, you activate about 70% of your muscles, improve your fitness and even increase the performance of your brain. Studies show that people can concentrate better and are more creative when walking. So…
- walk the distance,
- get off the bus or train one stop earlier or
- park a little further away.
2. Revitalize routines.
- Make phone calls while walking.
- Do some squats while brushing your teeth.
- Watch TV on your exercise mat or home trainer.
- Meet friends for a walk.
The possibilities are endless! Get creative.
3. Make it a habit.
- Start your morning with a short workout or take a brisk walk during your lunch break.
- Stretching and mobilization exercises before going to bed are also great ways to increase your physical activity.
This is how you integrate more physical activity into your intermittent fasting routine
As you can see, you don’t need a lot of time, money or a certain age to be more active. And you don’t have to be an athlete!
Just get creative. Small workouts are all it takes to influence your intermittent fasting results in a positive way.
