Clean the house and lose weight? Where do we sign up?

GET­TING YOUR DOSE OF DAILY EX­ER­CISE WHILE KEEP­ING THINGS TIDY AT THE SAME TIME? SIGN US UP!

TRY US­ING AN­KLE OR WRIST WEIGHTS Strap on th­ese nifty lit­tle things to in­crease ex­er­cise ben­e­fit. That means your arms and legs will feel a lit­tle bit heav­ier, ex­ert­ing more ef­fort when you walk or raise your arms. Ac­cord­ing to the Amer­i­can Coun­cil of Fit­ness, this helps burn five to 15 per cent more calo­ries just through ev­ery­day ac­tiv­i­ties!

SKIP ARM DAY AT THE GYM AND WHIP OUT THE VAC­UUM CLEANER IN­STEAD Vac­u­um­ing works out your bi­ceps and tri­ceps. Do­ing at least 30 min­utes will burn about 90 calo­ries, which is the same amount of 15 min­utes of kick­box­ing!

WANT TONED SHOUL­DERS? SCRUB THE BATH Get­ting rid of stub­born grime will take at least half an hour and burns as much calo­ries as half an hour on the tread­mill.

RAKE UP LEAVES This dou­bles as weight train­ing due to the re­sis­tance of­fered by the leaves. Thirty min­utes of this shed at least 225 calo­ries and work all the mus­cle sets in your body.

“It clears ev­ery­thing up men­tally, phys­i­cally, and you just have a bet­ter day.” MINKA KELLY ON WHAT EX­ER­CISE DOES
