Vacuum everywhere

Skip that core training class. The forward and back motion of vacuuming naturally tones your stomach muscles. All you need to do is flex them, starting at your pelvis and move into your upper abs. Then keep them flexed while you continue vacuuming. To burn even more calories add lunges to your cleaning routine.

Strengthen your biceps

You don’t need dumbbells to get the job done. Picking up detergents, laundry bags and furniture is a great way to tone your arms and forearms. Simply lift each item up to perform bicep curls.
