At the top of every hour stop do 25 sit ups and 25 push ups. If you can't do a real push up do the modified ones. This will not only get you into doing some exercise every day but it will also help you to increase the amount of push ups and sit ups you can do. Also helps to add stuff to your Fitness calculator.
Starting out slow and giving your body time to adjust
Most people start out exercising full on and when they feel the pain, they back off. I start out slow and add exercises and repetitions slowly. This gives my body time to adjust to the extra exercise time and repetitions. There is no need to hurt yourself and make exercising something to avoid. Make it easy and fun. Add an exercise a month if you like.
I do side leg lifts, knee bends, wall push ups (easier), and windmills (touch toes across). I am up to 150 wall push up in sets of 50, and 50 each on the other three exercises. I started the wall push ups at 50 and added ten a day, and the other exercises at 10 each (easy) and added five a day (easy).
