Getting Fitter While Doing Your Daily Activities.!

If the thought of going to a gym or even booking off time at home to exercise seems too daunting, try this solution: exercise while you go about your daily routine. Its simple, fun, and best of all you won't feel the time crunch.

The Toilet Squat

Every time you go to the washroom do 10-20 squats over the toilet before actually sitting. Squats are good for toning the entire body, especially the legs. See the end of the article for supporting stretches.

Chair Dips

Before sitting down to eat or at your desk, do 10-20 chair dips. Be sure the chair is stable. This is a good exercise to tone the back of your arms. Be sure to stretch after.

Bicep Curls

To strengthen your arms - use your briefcase, grocery bags, water bottle or even baby! Repeat 10-20 times.

The Bathroom Stretch

Perform these stretches while brushing your teeth or your hair, use the toilet seat for the first exercise (hold each one for 30 seconds).

  • For more specific instructions on how to perform these exercises please call Active Image.
