Ways to exercise for the busy agents.

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

We all would like to stay in shape but our life is always interfere with exercising regimen. I am on the same boat, I had to cancel with my trainer for the last 2 weeks, because my business always comes first. So here I've found some exercises that can be performed in the office in between of your appointments. Dumbells can be replaced with water bottles or business files:

Check it out...

 Works legs, butt Stand facing chair or couch about 2 feet away. Place right foot on seat, arms raised at chest level, palms in. Keeping arms lifted throughout, lower into a squat as if sitting in a chair (as shown), being careful not to let left knee creep past toes. Return to start; do all reps; switch sides.

 Works legs, butt Stand a few feet in front of couch, facing away from it, a dumbbell in each hand. Extend left leg behind you and rest top of foot on seat. Keeping torso tall, right knee over ankle, lower body until right thigh is parallel to floor (as shown). Return to start; complete reps and switch sides.

 Works abs, obliques Sit on floor with legs extended and knees bent. Hold a pillow with both hands at chest level and lean back at a 45-degree angle. Maintain this position as you contract your abs and twist torso right (as shown) and then left to complete one rep. Repeat.

 Works back, arms With couch on right, a dumbbell in left hand, place right knee on couch. Lower torso parallel to couch; place right hand on couch for support. Extend left arm to floor, palm facing in. Bend arm and lift elbow back to shoulder level so upper arm is parallel to floor. Extend arm straight back (as shown). Return to start and repeat reps; switch sides.

 Works chest, abs, arms, shoulders Start in push-up position with hands on chair or couch. Lower chest toward chair, keeping head aligned with spine (as shown). Push up until arms are straight but not locked. Repeat.

 Works abs Lie faceup on floor, an arm's length from couch or sturdy chair. Lift feet off floor, knees together, and place a pillow between hamstrings and calves. Reach arms overhead and grip couch or chair leg with both hands (as shown). Contract abs as you curl knees toward chest. Release and repeat.

Try to make the best of it to stay fit and healthy.....oh yeah.... and make sure the floor is clean and nobody is stearing through the window.....
