No time to exercise? Stuck in a traffic jam with a long journey ahead of you?
There’s always a way to squeeze in a little exercise no matter where you are. Just make sure if you are driving that you only do these exercises when you have stopped or when it is absolutely safe to do them…
Butt Boogie Blasters: You can tone the gluteal muscles almost anywhere by squeezing together your buttock muscles for 10 seconds and then releasing. Repeat 10 times.
Stomach Salsa Slimmers: Flatten your stomach by breathing out and pulling your stomach in towards your back as far as possible. Hold for six seconds and release. Repeat 10 times
Thigh Tango Tighteners: Squeeze your thighs together as hard as you can. Hold for 10 seconds and release. Repeat 10 times. If this is too easy you can increase the toning effect by squeezing something like a balled up sweater between your legs. Repeat 10 times.
Shoulder Samba Stretches: Keeping your arms and shoulders relaxed and holding lightly onto the steering wheel, lower your shoulders and pull back as far as you can moving your shoulder blades together. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat 10 times.
