If you have a small space but want your heart to beat faster, says celebrity personal trainer Nadya Fairweather (u-shapape.co.uk), then the first thing you have to do is buy your favorite cheerful music.
Then do eight high knees, with kick backs (kicking your feet up to touch your ass). Add enthusiastic arm movements. Keep alternating between the two exercises until the number ends.
If you are quite fit, add more impact: so run your high knees and kick backwards with a limp. To build endurance, you exaggerate movements, ie: higher knees, larger hops and so on.
WHAT TO EAT
Bananas are a great source of carbohydrates, potassium and vitamin B6, all of which can help increase endurance and energy levels
Go for high-energy food, says nutritionist Shona Wilkinson (shonawilkinson.com). Bananas are a great source of carbohydrates, potassium and vitamin B6, all of which can help boost their endurance and energy levels. Some studies have even shown that they can be as efficient as a carbohydrate to improve your performance. They are also easy to take as a snack.
The caffeine in coffee goes quickly from your bloodstream to your brain. It has a stimulating effect on the body and can make you feel alert and focused – just not have too much.
Dehydration can affect endurance by slowing body functions, so drink water during the day, even if you are not thirsty.
