Strength training at home

Strength training at home

By: Amy Pongrass
If you're one of those people who can't stand gyms or don't have time to make it there, consider weight training around the house.

For example, while you're waiting for water to boil, do some bicep curls using canned legumes or tomatoes, bottles of water or anything else reasonably heavy. Lunge your way down the hallway a few times a day and add in five squats between each piece of ironing. During ad breaks of your favourite TV show squeeze in some sit ups, or tricep dips using the edge of the couch or coffee table.

Eating healthily helps too - the more fruit and vegies you buy each week, the heavier your groceries will be and the stronger your arms will get after carrying them to and from the car.....
