In America the idea of exercise is that it must be this marathon session of painful work; an explosion of torture that leaves you feeling shaky and exhausted. The French idea of exercise though is to alter your daily routine and to fill your day with lesser activity that, by the time you’re in for the night, will add up to just as much, if not more, than a session at the gym.
For instance, look at your day and ask where you can do more walking. Do you take the elevator to the second or third floor? Stop that.Get more information here. http://runningandcupcakes.com/2012/05/16/blast-that-belly/ Do you drive the parking lot looking for the closest space? Don’t bother. The more casual walking you can do as part of your day, the more in shape you’ll be.
Additionally the French believe in body weight exercise in small increments throughout the day. If you’re waiting on the bus or train, flex your core for 12 seconds or so and then let go. Several sets of that, over time, will strengthen you up. Also, begin every day with a few sets of sit ups or plank exercises to get your blood going for the rest of the day.
