If you've ever spent time cleaning your home, you know that you end up working your muscles and maybe even breaking a sweat. That's the idea behind the cLEAN Momma Workout ($15). This isn't your basic DVD that you follow along like Simon Says from start to finish. The founder, Carolyn Barnes, shows you how to do strength training moves while incorporating your cleaning duties. You'll learn how to work your quads while scrubbing the floors, sculpt your arms while wiping your counter tops, and tone your tush while loading the dishwasher. This is multitasking at its best, and once you learn all the moves, you can construct your own workout routine based on your household chores.
Carolyn, the Clean Momma, is so funny, upbeat, and clever that I wish I could invite her over! Her entertaining and quirky explanations are really motivating. Basically she shows you how to fit in spurts of cardio, strength training, and stretches throughout your day if you have a tough time setting aside an hour for a full workout.
What I love most about this cleaning routine is that it's realistic and easy to translate to your life, since we all have to clean. It may seem crazy at first, but a little goes a long way, and doing some calves raises while putting your dishes away is better than doing no calf raises at all.
