Workout Minus Sweat

October 26, 2009

In response to yesterday’s blog post, Kate McKeon said the following:

“I did a series called Workout at Work on a few years back, I’ll have to dig that up – different objective. My workout at work stuff was to get the heart rate up without causing massive sweat so folks could do little bits throughout the day – not the long term solution, more of a coffee replacement.”

My response to her response is: “That is a brilliant idea / suggestion!”

For those that desire to exercise without changing out of their work clothes, try 1 round of the circuit I described yesterday, or look up Kate’s program.  With 1 round of what I described, you will probably work up a “mist”, depending on how “enthusiastically” you perform the exercises.  You could take a few minutes at different times during the day and perform the workout at 1 to 4 times interspersed throughout the day.

Whether you do the circuit several times in one workout or 1 time at one or more different times during the day, make sure your food intake does not increase.  I  mention this because your body is very “smart” in that when you begin burning additional calories via a workout, your body will automatically adapt to this extra calorie expenditure by causing you to take in more calories.  You can insure that you don’t eat more by keeping a food journal.  You can get a FREE food journal by visiting Kate McKeon’s site and mentioning that you were referred there by Darryl Pace.

Have a great one!

  1. This is excellent! Hey, is that guy doing push ups while working on the PC? Lol

    This is similar to what I was talking about in that message I sent you. I hope you got it. I sent it through the contact link here but I received it at my email address when it should’ve gone to you. Maybe it just sent me a copy for my records.

  3. Darryl,

    I was curious whether or not you were familiar with Matt Furey’s “Combat Conditioning” stuff. It simple, easy and can be done quickly in a hotel room, which is important to me. I’d like to know your opinion of it’s effectiveness.

    It is funny that you mention doing the exercises a round at a time. That is what I was thinking would work for me.
    You know in between alterations or fittings or blogging or commenting…..


  5. From reading the comments I’d say this is a hot topic for busy people.

  6. Hi Darryl,

    excellent point! I love the idea of the No Sweat Workout. It’s no sweat, man! totally COOL!

    When I worked in San Francisco proper back in the Pre-Business Casual is de rigeur days, I wore SUITS and HEEEEEEEEEEELs to work. 1. I would make efforts to walk the stairs and flights of stairs at work. and 2. bring sneaks and take walkies by the peers at lunch time.

    LOVED the photo of the laptop push up! hmmm. that might be really good for me! maybe I need a heavier notebook so I can lift and curl it for upper body strength.

    Happy Dating and Relationships,

    I like the idea of working out without much perspiration that require change fo work clothes.
