Workouts you can do on your lunch break

Make the most of that power hour

lunch time work outs

Making time for a workout can be difficult, especially if you have a hectic job. When the mornings are dark and you want five more minutes in bed, waking up and exercising can feel like a chore. Similarly, after a long day of work, exercise is the LAST thing on your mind. Priorities after 6pm are dinner, TV and snacks. This is where the lunch break workout comes into play.

Taking a break from your desk during working from home is hugely important. By doing a workout on your lunch break, you are not only doing something that will benefit your physical health, but your mental health too.

Even the best jobs are stressful at times, so doing a quick HIIT or workout on your lunch, whilst working from home is a good way to release stress. It also gives you the opportunity to actually step away from your laptop instead of half-gazing at your screen whilst spilling soup on yourself.

We’ve compiled a short list of our favourite speedy workouts that you can smash out on your lunch hour. Get scrolling to find your fave.
