Now You’re Cookin’

If you’re short on time and a little creative, it’s easy to sneak exercise into your daily routine. I’ve done a few lunges before hopping in the shower, calf raises while brushing my teeth and isometric ab toning when sitting in traffic. But when it comes to working out in the kitchen, I’ve gotten no more creative than doing a few push-ups against the counter and some squats while waiting for water to boil. I’m clearly missing out on some real workout potential in the kitchen. If you’re looking for more ideas, check out this little video (The Biggest Loser’s Alison Sweeney makes a cameo).

My fave move? The Tricep Sizzle, because bringing my yoga mat into the kitchen would be so convenient! Now I’m off to figure out some way to incorporate my crock pot into my workouts. Any ideas? —Erin

  1. Depending on the weight and shape of the crockpot, you might could use it for some sort of bicep curl. . .

    And, if you have a pet, I seem to remember a woman writing a whole book (!) years ago about how you could do an entire workout with your cat as the weight. Considering that my kitteh is 17 lbs, I could actually get a pretty good workout if I could convince him to make like a weighted bar. >^..^<
