In honor of the Oscar winning Best Picture from last year, I created a mini-car workout. Now you must be careful so you don't Crash while doing these 3 exercises. Remember keep your eyes on the road, but you can make any car ride beneficial for your body.
Here's what you do:
- Work your abdominals by holding in your belly for 30 to 60 seconds. This will work your deep abdominals and help you on your way to a flatter stomach. Focus on breathing in the back and sides of your lungs while keeping your belly pulled toward your spine.
- Squeeze your glutes alternating sides. Left booty for 5 seconds, then right booty for 5 seconds. Keep alternating sides for 10 to 20 reps. This can be a little challenging at first, but it is a great way to create some circulation on your backside while sitting on it.
- Put one arm, and one arm only, behind your headrest and push your hand toward your head. You should feel your bicep contract. Hold this for 10 seconds, then switch arms. This is a great exercise to try when you are at a stop light, rather than a curvy road or a crowded freeway.
Try these exercises on your evening commute.
