Need suggestions for 10-min fitness
I need some suggestions for little 10 minute fitness breaks that I sometimes take throughout the day. Basically, when I start falling asleep at my desk at work (like, all the time!), I will go to the changeroom, lock the door and get in a little exercise to get my blood pumping again. I usually take about 5-10 minutes, and I'll generally do the following:
a) a set of incline push ups against the counter edge (about 20)
b) a set of squats (about 30)
d) more pushups (I really have to work to get the last ones)
e) a set of lunges (about 20)
f) a set of tricep dips (to fatigue, about 15)
g) spalsh water on my face and go back to work looking a bit more alert
So, first question - am I actually doing myself any good with this? I am trying to build up some muscle, especially in my arms and shoulders (to support my boxing), but can these little tidbits of exercise really help me?
Second - are the other exercises I should be doing instead/as well that would improve my results? Remembering of course that they must be exercises that can be done in dress clothing in a small bathroom-sized area, in about 10 minutes. So, no lying on the floor, no equipment, and no cardio.
Love to hear your opinions!
