Indoor activities that burn the most calories

Indoor activities that burn the most calories

You don’t need to sweating through vigorous at-home exercises to burn calories. Some of the everyday activities you’re doing in self-isolation may still be helping you stay active.  Even if you are managing a daily workout during isolation, chances are that your NEAT is far lower than usual. NEAT stands for ‘non-exercise activity thermogenesis’ and it refers to energy expended when you’re not sleeping, eating or exercising. Ways you typically boost your NEAT might include walking around the shopping centre, hiking with your mates or playing with your kids at the park. Sadly, these are off the cards for now, but there are some activities you can do at home that will boost your NEAT and burn extra calories. Like what you see?

$8 solution to a total home gym while self-isolating

$8 solution to a total home gym while self-isolating

Stay in tip-top shape during coronavirus self-isolation with one piece of equipment. As gyms were forced to close down across Australia after strict social distancing and gathering measures were enforced to curb the spread of COVID-19, people have been looking for alternatives to maintain their fitness. Fortunately, working out at-home hasn’t been hard thanks to most gyms now streaming their workouts online. But some of those workouts require weights or other equipment that you probably need to splash some cash on to get a *real* sweat sesh. Sure you can use water (or wine) bottles to replace dumbbells or paper plates as sliders, but it’s just not the same. So, if you’ve got a spare $8 or so lying around (which TBH, you would’ve spent on your morning coffee if you weren’t in iso), purchase yourself a resistance band to take your workouts up a notch. Try this one from... Read More

How long do you actually need to work out for each day? Sam Wood weighs in

You have plenty more time to exercise now you’re self-isolating at home, but how long should you actually be working up a sweat for? Fitness expert Sam Wood reveals all. With so many of us now at home practicing self-isolation to curb the spread of COVID-19, we seem to have more time on our hands. We certainly have a whole array of challenges life presents, but when it comes to ‘not getting my workout done’, the number one reason is always ‘I don’t have time’. Now that most of us do, there’s really no excuses so let’s put it to good use. You don’t need hours, a gym or even lots of equipment to get great results. What you should be focusing on is consistency and variety. ‘Am I moving my body most days – and when I do, am I mixing it up to keep my body guessing?’ Remember,... Read More
