Normally I don't get much of a workout on Sundays, usually it's up, breakfast, out the door for shopping, chores, etc.
However, tomorrow I'm going to be going in to work, leaving me VERY little time for fitness, so I figured I'd do a bit of a workout today.
This is a workout I tend to do when I don't feel like I've done enough for the day, or if I just have some extra energy that needs to be released. And, as the name implies, it's done while doing laundry.
Well, folding laundry more precisely.
See, before ANY laundry is put away, it's folded in rows on my bed. My Work Shirts, My Casual Shirts, My Exercise Clothes, etc. And I sometimes sort socks individually so I can easily match them up.
Sometimes, I'll have four rows of clothes on my bed from all the sorting!
When I'm doing Laundry Fitness, each column has an exercise associated with it, and each row is the number of reps (usually 1, 2, 3, or 4) that I do for that exercise. Cardio like dancing or jogging in place is done in short spurts, basically either a minute or until the song/commercial on the radio ends. Usually the exercises are determined by what fitness card I pulled the day before.
So, for the first column, on the first row, it'd be jumping jacks, so each time I put an item in that pile, I do one jumping jack. The next column would be squats, so each time I put an item in that pile, I do one squat. And so on and so forth.
By switching up the cards like I do, plus with the unpredictability of which spot's going to have the most items placed into it, I get a different workout each time I do the laundry! The only drawback I find is that it makes doing the laundry take longer than normal, but that's okay, in order to get some extra time in. :)
