Ways to sneak in exercise throughout your day without much effort…tip number (7)
You brush your teeth everyday? Well hopefully…hehehe, This is what I do; I do leg lifts; called-standing reverse leg lifts or reverse leg raise (lifting that leg behind you). Great for the be-hind! I don’t know about you but my butt can always use a lift and this is a great way to achieve that. Stand tall and simply extend your leg behind you. You know you are doing it right, when you feel the bottom of your glutes tighten. What I do so I don’t have to count is I do one leg then the other. So I do right leg for one rep then left leg for one rep and back and forth. I do them until I am done brushing, about two minutes. Need more of a challenge? I will hold each rep up for one or two pumps, then I switch sides. This I feel gets in the muscle deeper for a nice burn! Give it a try and let me know what you think. Easy to do while brushing teeth , washing dishes, watching t.v., waiting to flip those yummy burgers on the grill. I do this while on computer too. In fact, I’m doing them now! Extra bonus: Not only is it fantastic for lifting the butt, it works low abs and low back. Love that!
