Muscles don’t know if you’re in a fancy gym or in your kitchen. These tips are designed for our busy lives­­…a minute here and a minute there adds up. These are great ways to sneak in certain exercises throughout the day. Keeping your muscles toned works miracles for your metabolism! I call these my Fidget-cisers… and if you like them, subscribe to my You Tube channel, where I have an entire playlist of Fidget-cisers!

Denise’s Fidget-Cisers:

  • To get a firm bottom when you’re walking up stairs, always skip a step­­…you’ll feel it more in your rear end. And remember to squeeze your buttocks!
  • Keep a pair of 3-pound or 5-pound dumbbells at your desk and do lifts while you are talking on the phones, in­ between meetings, and so on.
  • In your car, do tummy tighteners­­… pull in your ab muscles and tighten for 5 seconds. It’s equivalent to one sit-up!
  • Do squats while you blow ­dry your hair in the bathroom… it lifts your buttocks.
  • Do leg lifts in the kitchen to help keep those thighs toned and lean
  • Pretend “hula hoop” for your waistline­­… it helps get circulation going and works the muscles of the entire torso. Play great music and have fun with it!
  • Use resistance bands for your arm and leg workouts.
  • Sit on a balance ball at your desk­­… it helps engage your ab muscles. Then, you can roll the ball back and do a few sit-­ups, too.
