What tips do you guys have for sneaking in extra exercise throughout the day? I do heel raises, ballet leg lifts, and lunges while I straighten my hair.
I work three jobs and spend 2+ hours commuting every day, so I need some ideas! - Spoonful_O_Sugar479.3 #316 3-29-11 6:53PMLikeReply
walking instead of elevators, try brisk walking to, not just lounging around. Also try jumping squats, they are a tiring excercise that you can do anytime. you can also maybe do squats when your about to sit maybe a couple reps before actually sitting. Also do the "chair" excercise. back against the wall and acting like your sitting on a chair but your just supporting yourself - Madi204.1 #1744 3-29-11 7:16PMLikeReply
and, if your holding bags (grocery bags, purse) you can use them as weights, and do some arm lifting things. - Madi204.1 #1744 3-29-11 7:20PMLikeReply
Thanks, Madi! That helps! I really like the idea of wall squats--I hadn't thought of doing those. I spend a lot of my day sitting and driving, so I need to try to multitask while I'm working! - Spoonful_O_Sugar479.3 #316 3-30-11 7:33PMLikeReply
also when doing wall squats, try to carry weights while doing it, one dumb bell on each side, put your hands(carrying the weights) and raise it towards the front of your body. Hold it for like 10-20 seconds, rest, and then do it again - Madi204.1 #1744 3-30-11 11:03PMLikeReply
Sucking in your tummy for a long time is a workout in it's own! Your abs will feel it after a while, lmao try it - michelIe422.1 #387 3-30-11 11:29PMLikeReply
