4 Best Micro-Breaks to Kickstart Your Day

Hey, I’m excited to share this to you…

I have a video with Jenna who has been the fitness model in hundreds of my videos over the last 6 months. And now, she will start doing her own YouTube videos.

Check out her first YouTube video below. Let her know if you have any questions or ideas for future videos that she can do.

Enjoy!

I wanted to show you the best micro-breaks to kickstart your day.

These micro-breaks will increase your energy and alertness in just 90 seconds. You can do these exercises for about 20 seconds each.

#1 – Squat

Stand with your feet at hip-width apart and go through the squat movement. Sit down, then stand up. You can either hold your arms out in front of you, or leave them down at your sides. Repeat the movement.

It doesn’t matter what pace you do, you still reap all the benefits.

#2 – Calf Raises

Do this exercise using a chair, a desk, or whatever works for you.

Stand at the back of the chair and place your hands against it for balance. Straighten out your legs, then lift your heels and stand up on your toes.

If you want to increase the difficulty of this exercise, lift your arms up when you stand on your toes. Do whatever pace works for you and hold onto a chair or stable surface for balance.

#3 – Air Punches

Stand straight with your legs hip-width apart and slightly bend your knees. Hold your fists up at chest height. Punch your right arm forward, rotate your shoulder slightly, then punch with the left arm. Repeat the movements.

#4 – High Knees

Begin in a standing position with your feet hip-width apart. Lift your right knee and left arm, then switch quickly so your left knee is up and your right arm is raised. Repeat the movements.

You can do this exercise at whatever pace you like.

  1. Great set of exercises to get you going. We use the exact same group of exercises during our exercise regime at the local YMCA Balance + (Livewell) classes in the Hamilton, ON area. These classes are for seniors (I am 65 years old) who have experienced balance issues in their lives. Keep the great work.
