Vacuuming: A Killer Exercise

2-9-17.jpgFor the health of your carpet, vacuuming is necessary.  For the health of you, vacuuming is a great way to keep you in shape.  Sure, it may sound a little odd, but vacuuming has the potential to be a killer workout, so long as you add in a few extra steps.  Find out what those are to make your next cleaning session a fitness session in our latest blog!

Believe it or not, vacuuming alone burns up to 190 calories per hour, and when you couple in all the other tasks you need to do around the house when cleaning, it can all add up to a very intensive exercise.  However, if you add some simple things onto your vacuuming routine, you can even burn more calories and get some muscle growth going.  For example, instead of walking the vacuum across the room, you can do lunges.  Or, if you flex your stomach for the whole duration of vacuuming, you can really get a workout on your abs.  

But who says that you have to limit your workout to just vacuuming?  Dusting while doing calf extensions or wiping all of your windows in small circles all make for a great workout.  Add in the forearm workout from mopping, and you have yourself a great routine and a healthy home.
