SOME DAYS I’M JUST TOO TIRED FOR THE GYM. IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE I CAN DO? – Dylan
Sure there is. Ride a bike for 20 minutes – it’s a proven lethargy buster. In a recent University of Georgia study, low-energy but otherwise healthy people who took time out for a 20-minute stationary bike ride three days a week reported an impressive 20 percent boost in energy over the course of six weeks.
If cycling isn’t your thing, you can replicate the study’s results by choosing any exercise that increases your resting heart rate by 50 beats a minute, says exercise physiologist Dean Somerset.
