Multitasking Move: Laundry Squats

Sometimes combining two unpleasant activities can make both tasks easier to do. Adding squats to the dreaded act of folding laundry, gets two tasks completed simultaneously. How efficient! It is true that I like time saving activities, so here is how I make folding laundry work for me and work my booty.

  1. Place full laundry basket(s) on the floor next to your clean dining room or kitchen table.
  2. Squat down to pick up an article of clothing. Remember to keep your knees over your toes. Also don't round your lower back.
  3. Fold the clean article of clothing and place it on the table.
  4. Repeat steps two and three until the laundry baskets are empty or you have completed 30 to 50 squats.

When all the laundry is folded, hold onto the back of a chair and stretch out the front of your thighs with this quad stretch.

If you regularly combine strength training and housework share the details in the comment section below! I am always looking for ways to take care of my house and my body.

I'm going to fold laundry tonight and I'm going to try this! I also do lunges while I wait for my food to cook in the microwave. Multitasking is great!
