Some of the benefits of this shift towards being more active are decreased resistance to insulin, increased metabolism, decrease cortisol (stress hormones), increased fat burn and much much more.
So what are you waiting for? Get moving!
Every hour, on the hour that you're awake stand up and complete 10 bodyweight squats. It's as simple as that.
Make sure that when squatting you focus on keeping your chest upright and getting your bottom as low to the ground as you can. Keep your weight on your heels (your toes may come off the ground a little). You don't want your heels to come off the ground. When you're on your way back up think about squeezing your bottom and your hamstrings (muscles at the top of your leg at the back). Doing this will start to activate these muscles that are generally 'asleep' because we spend so much time sitting down!
Are you up for the challenge? Set yourself an alarm to make sure you don't miss any.
