  • I love making up my own home exercise routine as I get bored VERY easily. I've done some research on interval training and really like what I've found. Basically it involves high intensity exercise followed by a recovery period which you can do for 30 minutes per day. Some people think that breaking up those 30 minutes into three 10 minute workouts spread throughout the day keeps your metabolism burning more efficiently all day. You can choose what kind of exercises to do and how long to do each one. For instance I will do 20 fast jumping jacks followed by 15 reps of a form of weight lifting, then right back into the jumping jacks and so...  You can also choose to do 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes and so on of a specific exercise rather than do a certain count. Just keep switching between high intensity and lower intensity throughout the workout.
