An immediate energy boost is all you need, and here is a solution for you. Movement of the body is not only good for “the body“, but also for your mind and well-being. Your muscles will probably also be well pleased if they get to experience something else than just sitting and typing on a keyboard all day.

The Routine:

*Complete one-minute intervals of each exercise for three rounds. 

If you execute every step of the workout for one minute, and repeat everything three times, you will have just accomplished a nice 12 minute workout. 12 minutes definitely sound better and less time-consuming, than sleeping for half an hour or an hour. And, a workout is definitely better for your mind, health and energy levels.

Energy Boost Workout Routine by Sydney Cummings explained

The four workout moves explained, as per Poosh.

The Move: Standing Heel Taps
How to: Wake your brain up with some bilateral work as you stand up nice and tall and tap your opposite heel behind your back, alternating each leg as you step side to side.

The Move: Squat and Overhead Reach
How to: Drop down into a wide squat. As you stand up to the top of your squat, reach your right arm up and over to the left side to stretch the right side of your body. Return to the squat and repeat on the left side of the body, taking the left arm up and over to the right side.

The Move: Up Dog to Down Dog
How to: Start in a down dog position and shift forward into a high plank. Lower down to the floor and then press up into an up dog position. Shift back to down dog and repeat the flow.

The Move: Runners Lunge and Twist
How to: Start in a plank position and step your left leg up beside your left hand. Open your left hand up toward the sky and twist your torso to open up your body and increase blood flow to help wake you up. Return back to a plank and repeat on the opposite side of your body.
