Firm Your Thighs On the Phone!

Saturday, January 25, 2006

by Denise Austin

If you spend a lot of time on the phone, like I do, don't just sit there make it a workout by "pretending" to sit! Here's how: lean your back lightly against a wall, making sure to press your spine flat. Slowly lower your body along the wall until your knees are bent to at least a 45-degree angle, but no more than 90 degrees. The motion should feel like you're lowering yourself into a chair. Hold for as long as you can, up to 60 seconds. Repeat.

This move not only makes the most of the time you'd otherwise be idle, it also tones and strengthens your quadriceps! Talk about multitasking!
