Situation: In the shower
Stretches: Legs

There are tons of small exercises you can do while taking a shower. Drop the Soap might have a slightly odd look to it, but since no one is watching you in the shower you can just go for it.

It’s a basic leg stretching exercise, try to touch the floor without arching your back. Hold the stretch about 8-10 seconds and repeat three times, going deeper in the stretch each time. You will feel the stretch on the back of your legs.

Calf raises – while brushing your teeth

Exercise: Calf raises
Situation: Brushing teeth

Using the time while brushing your teeth to work out is excellent. In one year you spend about 24h in front of the mirror brushing your teeth. Make sure you spend that time well and make it a habit to do small exercises instead of just starring ar yourself.

Push yourself swiftly up on your toes and slowly back down again. You can increase the resistance by doing it on one foot at the time which will also exercise your balance. This is a great exercise for when brushing your teeth because it takes about two minutes to complete this workout. Aim for about 120-150 reps.
