What if I told you that you can burn calories around the clock? Burning calories is not just about that 30-minute workout you squeeze in throughout the day. It’s also what you do for the other 23-½ hours that really makes a lasting impact on your health and waistline. So before you slip into the sheets each night, try these 3 strategies to help maximize your caloric burn at night time:
- Instead of leaning on the sink while you brush your teeth, do a wall sit: Standing with your back a couple feet from the wall, bend your knees and lower into a 90-degree angle squat position, and hold it there for 15-60 seconds. Suddenly your nightly brush isn’t just about your teeth and gums – now it’s a great leg and glute strengthener, too.
- For those certain long-distance loved ones who love to catch up by phone, walk and talk. Instead of sitting and chatting, take your convo to the stairs. A person climbing stairs uses around 10 calories per minute, or 360 calories in just 20. Isn’t it about time we put the “mobile” back into “mobile phone?”
- Don’t just do the dishes – try some calf raises while you wash, and shoulder blade retractions while you dry.
You can tone up and burn calories at night time in a way that’s convenient for you. It just takes a little bit of creativity. Start with these tips, and get creative with your own!
