Squeeze fitness into your day-to-day life


If you do keep doing little exercises throughout the day, you'll keep the oxygen flowing in your body. These exercises can be in the kitchen, in your car, while you brush your teeth, or while you're sitting at your computer.

Boost your metabolism by using these moves to squeeze in a little extra fitness all day long.

Work those legs: Try doing leg lifts at your desk or squats while you brush your teeth at night.

Add some extra steps to your day: Whenever you can, sneak in extra walking. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park your car far away from where you are supposed to go.

Tuck that tummy: Try lying on the floor or on a blanket and do crunches if you're relaxing in the living room in front of the TV. Do it every time the commercial comes up.

Keep your phone away: Instead of holding your phone all day you can do a little exercise. Press your back flat against a wall and lower your body by bending your knees to a 45- to 90-degree angle. Hold the position for as long as you can.

First step: Put all those moments of restlessness into an opportunity to move your body. Turn idle time into exercise and let these moments add up to major health benefits.

Stretch it out: Stretching encourages those tense muscles to relax and counteracts any tightness from poor posture and tired muscles. Try doing shoulder and chest relaxer, and neck and shoulder release at your desk — you'll probably start an office trend!

Squeeze that butt: This exercise can be done in an elevator, or as you're walking down the aisles of agrocery store or may be while you're waiting in line at the bank. No one will know — and it's so effective!
