Ever thought of your house as a gym? Probably not, but it is a great place to start or maintain your workout. Even a few minutes each day will have lasting effects. So, get moving at home.
“The key to a fit body is consistency and diversity of the exercise regimen,” says Dr. Levi Harrison, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hand, wrist and shoulder injuries and author of The Art of Fitness: A Journey to Self Enhancement. He offers three tips for incorporating fitness into your everyday life.
1 Do air squats while sweeping or mopping.
2 Do push-ups from the sides of stable furniture while dusting or do push-ups on the floor.
3 Do hamstring curls or toe raises while washing or drying dishes.
Bonus: There are 8 minutes of commercials for every 30 minutes of any television show. So, do sit-ups and crunches during all television commercials.
