Hooray for Housework!

Tue, 13 Feb 2007 by Denise Austin

Sure, mopping floors and tilling the garden is hard work, but exercise? Researchers say it is! The great news is that chores help you burn calories while you get things done! If you do them often enough, you won't have to go to the gym! Try turning on the tunes and moving briskly; add squats, biceps curls, and other moves as you go.

You can burn 200 calories an hour mopping, vacuuming, or washing windows, the same as medium-intensity aerobics; 400 calories per hour of mowing the lawn, the same as cycling; and 500 calories per hour of washing and waxing the car, the same as jumping rope! So don't delay! Get busy with that to-do list today!
