You save time and money you coulda spent at the gym and you get your chores done at the same time! Here are some tips to follow.

Scrub the floor

Ditch your mopping stick and scrub your floor the old fashioned way by getting down on all fours and tackle the scrubbing. When you push your hands forward on the floor to scrub, stretch your torso as far as you can to tighten your stomach muscles and make sure your hips don't droop with the effort.

Gardening and mowing the lawn

Gardening could be the best way of losing weight with household chores. When you work in your garden for two hours, bending, lifting and squatting while you tend your plants, you could lose close to 270 calories or more! Raking and mowing your lawn could also prove effective, apart from helping you burn away a good number of calories, and you also tone up your thighs, shoulders, and arms while using the lawn mower.
