Work your bum while doing household chores

1 of 3

The next time you are doing a household chore, such as bringing dishes to and from the dining room, do a few walking lunges. Feed yourself and work out all at the same time. Take a big step forward with your left leg. Both feet should face forward. Bend both knees so that your back knee lowers towards the ground. Pause at the bottom for three seconds.

Use the bum muscle of the front leg to push yourself forward and back to standing.
