You knnow the feeling:
You’re at your desk, it’s 3pm, and the clock seems to be ticking slower and slower (and did it just move backwards?!)… and your head begins to droop, but there is a 4pm meeting so you can’t leave early. UGH! Normally, you’d reach for a coffee or a “cheerful treat”, but after a few minutes that fades, and you’re back to the droopsies.
Next time you feel that faux-narcolepsy sneaking up, try this super quick Pick-Me-Up Pump to get the juices flowing, without breaking a sweat! Note: this is NOT about weight loss, or gains, this is STRICTLY a non-food, non-caffeination energy boost, solely from the power of ENDORPHINS!
All you need is a little space & 5-minutes!
30s Air squats 15s rest
30s Desk Push-Ups 15s rest
30s Torso Circles 15s rest
30s Desk dips 15s rest
30s Toe touch to Ceiling reachers 15s rest
30s Wide arm torso twists DONE!
That’s it! Give it a try! You’ll pump new oxygen into your lungs, push some new blood through the veins, rush endorphins to the brain and it will wake you RIGHT UP without doing enough work to actually exchange into your aerobic system and break a sweat.
