LISS, which stands for Low Intensity Steady State, exercise is a great thing to fit into your weekly exercise regime but when you have to wrestle with your buggy on a day to day basis it feels like a challenge to make the most of this time. So I have got a few suggestions below which you can use to really make the most of this time.
- Walk faster than normal! Sounds so obvious, but seriously walk fast! You still want to be able to hold a conversation, but walk at a speed that you can really feel your heart beating when you stop.
- Don’t stop for coffee halfway round… just saying… this isn’t the optimum halfway action. I have totally done this, so don’t feel too bad if you have too, but it just isn’t going to keep your heart rate up for that 30/40 mins you are walking.
- Do some other exercises to really make the most of this time:
So before you skip over this bit… I felt EXACTLY the same as you about using park furniture to exercise on, but after doing these with Rupert there I am forever converted! He loved it and I got such a good workout in!
What else do you do during your LISS?
Hope this helps!
