Always too busy to make it to that pump class or hour-long gym sesh? Say hello to fitness snacking. Also known as intermittent exercise, fitness snacking involves breaking your daily dose of exercise into smaller, more manageable chunks. Considering 12 million Aussies are currently leading sedentary lifestyles, it could be just what you need to get you moving. To practise fitness snacking, all you need to do is schedule multiple bursts of high-intensity exercise throughout your day, such as a 15-minute run before and after work, two minutes of push-ups and squats during TV commercials or three rounds of stair runs between meetings. If you think that breaking up your workouts won’t deliver the same health benefits as uninterrupted exercise, think again. A recent study by Harvard researchers found that as long as you put in the same amount of effort, both short and long periods of exercise will deliver the same results. So, you’d best get on to those burpees!
