The health benefits of regular exercise are hard to ignore. Everyone benefits from exercise, regardless of age or physical ability.
And here at The Healthy Mummy, we have made it even easier for you! Our new 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App is very user friendly for busy mums!
What you can do with the exercise app plan
On the App you can easily view and complete daily workouts and record what you’ve done for the day in your activity tracker.
The main focus of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge exercise App is to get you more active and help you reach your daily activity minutes goal each day – this can be a combination of the workout videos in the App plus exercise of choice.
All activity counts
You can choose from the wide range of workout video categories to suit you. You can choose 1-2 videos to do each day together with around 20-30 minutes of your own exercise of choice e.g. a brisk walk, a jog, playing with kids at the park, dancing around the house, housework. All activity counts.
Which workout videos to choose
Most of the workout videos in the App are HIIT style which incorporates bursts of high intensity activity with short breaks in between. Research shows that this type of activity burns calories even after you’ve finished working out.
Within HIIT is Tabata. This style is where you do 20 secs of activity, 10 secs of rest and repeat for 4 sets, then switch to a new exercise.
Tabata routines are all different with regards to how long you do the exercise for, how long the breaks are, and how many repetitions you do.
Tabata is a really great style of HIIT workout to burn calories in a short amount of time. They’re great for busy mums as you can fit it in whenever you can.
When it comes to planning your exercise, you can start off by planning how many days you’re going to exercise per week, aim for a minimum of 3 days.
On each of those days, choose 1-2 workout videos from the App. With this, you can also schedule in 20-40 minutes of another activity every day. It is a good idea to schedule these into your diary so you can set aside time to do something everyday.
Exercising early in the morning before the day’s responsibilities take over can be a good idea, but anytime that works for you is great. You can find out more by reading our blog about the best time to exercise.
