How To Potty Train Your Workout!

by Kathy Smith

Here’s your fit fact for the weekend….According to a recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, even if you go to the gym each morning, your results can be NEGATED if you also spend most of the rest of your day sitting.

Your hectic life can make it hard to find time for consistent exercise…especially at the end of the day when you’re not necessarily in the mood. But here’s a way you can get in better shape without devoting a lot of time. If you find yourself struggling to stay active, the key is to have certain cues that prompt you to move. I’ve found a silly but effective method for staying active throughout the day….it’s called POTTY TRAINING! This may seem unusual, but you can start a new habit by adding a simple move to something you already do.

It’s simple.

All you have to do is commit to performing 20 air squats over the toilet every time you go into the bathroom.

Here’s how to do a PERFECT squat…

1. To begin, position yourself in front of the toilet. Lower yourself down so you ALMOST touch the seat of the toilet, but don’t make contact.
2. Stand back up.
2. Repeat and keep your knees and weight back
3. The further and lower you get down in the squat, the more you’ll feel it in your butt BTW, you can also take breaks and do them while you’re working on your computer. Set your timer to do them every 15 minutes! This allows you to pick up your metabolism, focus and energy throughout the day…and define your glutes!
