Just found this Team. This is the first thread that caught my eye. It certainly sounds interesting and I'll have to also try to implement some of these exercises into my bathroom routine as well. Anything to get in a few calories burned and muscles toned a little more. Thank you for this thread.

I clench my butt cheeks together in the shower 8 times each shower - sounds awful, works wonders. Clench cheeks together as tight as you can, count to ten, relax...repeat !!!
Thanks for all the other suggestions...can see me spending lots of time in the bathroom !!

Definately a catching title!

This is actually a great idea! I don't know that I'll actually do it IN the bathroom but I'll probably walk up and down the stairs in my building each time I take this break (2-3 times round trip). That's about 60 stairs up and then back down each time, I believe. That might be a quick refresher!

Okay, I have been slacking on posting here...But everyday has been something different but my two favs are wall pushups and jumping jacks! I truly forgot how much I loved jumping jacks...Today though ~ I am going to jump rope (minus the actual rope)...I figure if I can get in 20 good jumps each bathroom break, I'll be doing good.

I lost count of how many squats I did yesterday but I know it was a lot...And my legs were so sore last night I didn't even walk the treadmill.
Today I am doing jumping jacks again (40 so far)...I forgot how much I use to enjoy jumping jacks. they were my fav in Gym during JR High.

Oh my goodness, I used to do jumping jacks in the bathroom when I was in my 20's. My friends really looked at me funny when I'd tell them. I'm glad I'm not the only one that does this. I always felt so much better after I'd do it too. Lately, I've been do lunges and leaning against the wall, bending my knees and seeing how long I can hold the position.

Okay so I stole this from one of my other teams...

Don't be turned off by the title. LOL One of my members came up with the idea of bathroom challenge. We pick an exercise and do a set or two each time we go to the bathroom during the day. I think it works out great for those of us who work in an office. We've even got ladies that don't work joining in. I'm up to 70 wall pushups for the day. Just thought I'd share. I'm lovin' it.

Here are a few suggestions for different exercises:

10 stretches of your choice

wall push ups

wall squats.. these are great strength training exercises.

calf raises are quick and easy too

jumping jacks

Come on ladies *and Gents...put your thinking caps on...what else can we do?
