The Morning Motivator: 5 Exercises You Can Do While Getting Ready Without Breaking a Sweat.

Feeling sluggish in the morning? No time for exercise? I’ve got 5 Exercises you can do while getting ready in the morning without breaking a sweat. 

Before you get into the shower…

Tub Triceps Dips

Sit up straight and tall, with your shoulders down, on the edge of the tub, facing away from the inside of it.

Both feet should be flat on the ground,hip width apart.

Place both hands on either side of you, (close to your hips) with your fingers facing forward.

Push your tush off the edge of the tub and support yourself with your arms and core muscles.

Bend your elbows as you lower your body, toward the ground. Make sure you bend your elbows straight back keeping them close to your sides. Do as many as you can!

While you wait for your coffee to brew…

Counter Push Ups

Face the counter top and place your hands on the edge, roughly shoulder-width apart. Step your feet backward. Lift your heels up so that your body forms a plank. Don’t let your back round or arch.

Lower your chest toward the counter while keeping your elbows in. Then press your body back to starting position. Do as many as you can in the time you have.

 

While you blow dry your hair…

Hot Squats

Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder distance apart heels pointed in and toes turned out into a 45 degree angle.

As you dry your hair, bend knees and lower your torso, keeping your back straight and abs tight.

Squeeze your glutes and come to standing position. Repeat.

 

 

Before heading back upstairs…

Calf Raises 

Start on a step with only the forefoot on the step, the heels off the back.

Rise up onto the toes and then slowly back down.

To make this harder it can be performed on one leg at a time. Beginners start with 20 reps. Advanced exercisers go for 50 reps!

 

 

 

While you brush your teeth…

Wall Sit 

Stand about two feet in front of a wall and lean back against it. Slide down until your knees are at about 90-degree angles, make sure your knees don’t go past your toes. Hold until you’re done brushing your teeth.

 

 

 

 

There you go! NO Excuses.

Live Well.
