This morning, my wonderful wife was perusing the internet and happen to come upon an article about cold symptom remedies. Now I am well aware that the flu is not the same as the common cold.
One thing the article did discuss however, was the effect of exercise on duration of a cold or the flu. The article stated that the inclusion of mild to moderate exercise during a cold would help to increase circulation of white blood cells to help fight off invaders.
I thought it was pretty interesting. So I came up with this little circuit for you guys to keep the flu from getting to you!
Do each exercise for :45 seconds and then rest for the other :15. Perform all 10 exercises and its a 10 minute workout!!
- Single Leg Squat Right Leg
- Single Leg Squat Left Leg
- Hip Cross Over (Lie on back, lift knees and feet in the air, put arms out to side and drop legs from side to side)
- Close Grip Pushups
- Wide Grip Pushups
- Forward Lunges
- Smurf Jacks (jumping jacks, but stay squatted as if ducking under a rail)
- Stick ups
- Mountain Climbers
Have a Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy New Year!
