Ladies: You Can Squeeze In A Workout Just About Anywhere
We hope you find time to squeeze this in:
We stumbled on to this website while sitting lazily on the couch-- http://www.squeezeitin.com/.
Let's be honest. It's easy to come up with a million excuses for not wanting to exercise, or even move off the couch. But according to Brigette Polmar and Jenny Hein, there is a way to make fitness a part of your life. Even if it involves fitting quick exercises in and around your daily chores.
Brigette and Jenny call themselves 'crazy moms from the 'burbs.' Actually, the duo has created their popular website for busy women and moms out there, who want to make every minute count. Brigette has a TV background and Jenny is a certified fitness instructor, so the lessons they give you are well-packaged and smart.
Squeezeitin.com is a free site that keeps you moving, in every room of the house, or at the office, in the grocery store, and even waiting with your child at the bus stop.
For instance, these two clever ladies have lots of exercises that you can do just about anywhere, because you are never too busy to squeeze in a workout. Have a minute to kill, while you're waiting for the microwave to buzz?
Jenny Hein suggests gripping the edge of the kitchen countertop and performing 2 sets of 12 elevated push-ups.
Or how about some dish-lifts for your calves, as you put dishes away in the cabinet?
"While putting dishes away rise up onto toes. Hold for a count of 3 while chanting SQUEEZE-IT-IN. Come down slowly onto heels. Repeat until all dishes are back in cupboards or for at least 2 sets of 12."
Squeezeitin.com has videos to show you these mini fitness routines, step-by-step.
Whether it's laundry legs or the park bench dips or hairstyling hot squats, there are excellent movements for women at all levels of fitness.
