2. Tidying and Cleaning the House
Tidying and maintaining your house is an exercise that involves removing some calories from your body. It needs a few hours to tidy your home by making the beds and taking care of the cabinets. In addition, you may have to clean all the areas which are dirty. This requires bending and straightening as you pick up items on the floor and put them back in their places. All these activities will strengthen your muscles and get you into shape.
If you want to tone your upper and lower arm muscles, consider dusting your house. It will only take you about 10 minutes of daily work to get into shape. If you can clean your windows and doors once a week, it can help your muscles. Ensure that you use both your left and right hands when cleaning them. Don’t hesitate to reach up as high as you are able when cleaning. This will help your abs, glutes, and lower back muscles.
It is ideal to run a finger over the glass to determine how much dirt has collected on it. This will help you to come up with a plan on how many times to clean them. Reaching high areas of the windows and doors stretches your body. Squatting when evaluating the areas you may have missed while cleaning is also good. It helps your hips, thighs, and calves. Actually, when scrubbing away the dirt will give your arms some tone and strength.
The tops of cabinets are one of the areas mostly ignored by many people. As a result, the dirt always accumulates in such area. This should present you with an opportunity to tone your quads and glutes. Take a chair and put it in front of a dirty item. You can with one movement step up on the chair and reach your opposite arm up high. Ensure that your glute is contracted and lift your back leg. Hold it while you dust the cabinet.
