i've been looking at strength training in a new way. there are even websites you can google to get some ideas. here are some of them.
* grocery shopping
*carrying grocery bags into the house
*putting your groceries away
*changing the sheets - that good old tug and pull
*carrying a laundry basket full of wet clothes
*even opening the frig, washer, and dryer doors,
*putting in and taking clothes out of the washer/ dryer
*cleaning out your car
*picking up and taking in the dry cleaning
*buying and carrying in the pet food bags
* same for cat litter
*picking up and putting down children, pets,
*talking on the phone while holding a child
*walking up the steps to you home or those inside your home
so...... re-think how you count your strength minutes and never record a zero or 5 min. again .
what others can you add?
