Ways to sneak in exercise throughout your day without much effort…tip number (9)
Folding laundry can be boring and for those of you that know me, know I like to make a lot out of each moment, so here’s a great exercise that will keep your legs toned and sculpted while you fold piles and piles of laundry…
Standing lateral leg lift.
Stand tall. Pull in tummy (Always pull in those abs. Helps protect the low back.). And simply raise leg out to the side. I like to tighten the muscles in the leg with each lift. Again, I go from one leg to the other so I don’t have to count repetitions. This exercise is a great way to strengthen the tissue around the pelvic joint, hip flexors, and those pesky saddlebags!
Of course you can do this while brushing your teeth, watching t.v., talking on the phone…Point is to get up; get moving. Come on, you can do this. Sexy, sculpted legs are yours for the taking!

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!
