I'm a believer in efficiency so I try to incorporate exercise in general tasks. For example, since I love to stand in the soothing pounding and warmth of the shower I stretch that time a minute by doing 20 toe ups for strengthening the calves. --and then cool down with cold to wake up and start the day. Lunging while putting on deodorant or brushing teeth also works. Call me wierd but slowly building metabolism!

In the morning before I take my shower, I do calf raises on the shower stall door. I also do wall push-ups or close arm wall push-ups after I put conditioner in my hair while I wait the 2 minutes. At the end of my shower I have a squeegee that I use to clean the doors. 3 exercises in one shower!
EACH MUSCLE! Homeade by me! Seperate specific muscle moves through workout!

Sometimes there are not enough minutes in the day so to get a little done without taking anytime, I use some "shower time" in the shower i do wall push- ups and some wall crunches at the beginning of the shower. Its not a lot but ever little bit helps...198
