Five Exercises You Can Do While Brushing Your Teeth

February 10, 2014

Lifehacker.com shared a great tip for incorporating movement while brushing your teeth.

From the blog:

You spend two minutes in the morning and two at night brushing your teeth. Instead of just standing around, make even better use of that time by incorporating a few simple movements for balance, flexibility, and strength.

The five movements fitness coach John Sifferman demonstrates here are:

  • One-legged stand or the alternative 4 corner balance
  • Rock-bottom squat or squat movements (Lifehacker reader Alec Glen sometimes does one-legged squats instead of standing on one leg while brushing his teeth)
  • Calf raises
  • Hip mobility drills
  • Foot massage with a tennis ball

This little fitness hack won’t radically transform your body or count as your exercise for the day, but as Sifferman notes, any time and way you can fit in more movement, it’s a win.
