You probably spend part of your day driving around, travelling to work to errands to home. If you have children, you spend a lot more time driving them to and from school, activities, and more. By the time you’ve done all this travelling and a day of work, the last thing you feel like doing is working out.
Does that feeling sound familiar? Well, this is a common feeling, but there are some quick solutions to try without leaving your car!
Here are 3 workouts from your car. Extra time required – none!
1. Breathe deeply. Try deep breathing at every red light while performing some of the below exercises or just on its own. You can really activate your abdominals and pelvic floor muscles by following my tips for breathing deeply.
2. Glute clenches. Try to perform alternate or combined glute clenches by squeezing your buttocks muscles 20 times or as many times as you can at a red light.
3. Steering wheel squeezes. With your hands at the 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock positions on the steering wheel, press inwards on the wheel and release 20 times. This is an exercise that emphasizes your chest muscles. Another great exercise to do at a red light!
I’d love to hear how these ideas work for you or if you have any other car workouts you like to do. 🙂
