SEAT BELT CHEST FLYS
Where: In the taxi (or backseat of any car)
How: Sit in the middle of the back seat and grab onto each seatbelt. Draw the seatbelts into the center right at chest level and then back, while using them as resistance. Do this for one minute.
Feel it: In the chest, biceps, triceps, and shoulders.
Where: At the office
How: Stand with your feet and your knees together. Bend your knees as if you are sitting in a chair. With your back straight, “sit” on your chair and hold it for one minute.
Feel it: In the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes
Where: In the elevator
How: Stand about a foot-and-a-half away from the wall with your feet generously outside shoulder width. Place your right hand on the wall just below shoulder height. Lean into the wall using your hand for support and then push away. One minute for each arm.
Feel it: In the chest, pecs, deltoids, biceps, triceps, and lats
GOOD-GIRL, NAUGHTY-GIRL LEGS
Where: In the movie theater
How: Bring your booty to the front of the seat. Lift the legs so your feet are off the ground and your core is engaged. Bring the knees in for the good-girl legs and open up the knees and touch your heels together for naughty-girl legs. Do this for one minute.
Feel it: In the entire lower body and abs
