If you’re a shop-a-holic, this might not be good for your bank account, but it is suitable for a no-sweat way to burn away those extra calories. Shopping is a great way to burn calories and have a good time while doing it. Shopping in a mall (not online) involves a lot of walking, which means that you will be getting in a decent amount of steps. If you have a smartwatch, you should track how many steps you do and think about things like taking the stairs instead of the escalator. There are other ways to burn calories while shopping, including while you’re in line!
We know that waiting in line is the absolute worst, but you can get in a quick ab workout while you wait. Work on building a stable core by pulling your belly button towards your back and holding this for a count of 10, then release and repeat. Thanks to your heavy shopping bags, you can also work on your biceps. While you’re walking around, throw in a bicep curl here and there with your shopping. You can also do shoulder shrugs with your bags, with your arms fully extended downwards and simply lifting your shoulders repeatedly.
