So, you only have 30 minutes for lunch, and it’s your only time to work out. Impossible to get a good lunch workout, you say! How is that possibly enough time, you ask?
The key to fitting in an effective workout during your lunch break is by being efficient, both in your workout prep and during the workout itself. Short bursts of high-intensity exercise will make your quick workout just as effective as any other. In fact, research has shown that just 15 minutes of exercise can give you almost the same effects as a 60-minute workout if you kick up the intensity.
If you are nervous about being sweaty and gross or drained and tired the rest of the day, don’t fret. Your lunch workout shouldn’t leave you drained—it should leave you feeling energized for the rest of the day and way better than any energy drink or afternoon vending machine trip ever could.
Lunch workouts make perfect sense: lunch is a meal meant to fuel you up and energize you for the remainder of the afternoon, making it the perfect time to fit in an energizing workout, too. Just follow these tips to ensure you have enough time to exercise and get ready for work again afterwards.
