Explore Side Lunges, Do Exercise, and more!

This is an awesome exercise for everyone, but especially for runners as well as athletes who need to move from side to side. Try it if you run or play a sport like hockey or soccer. At home, try the "stealth" version. Do the exercise as you do household chores. At the gym the exercise is usually called a side lunge. Hold a weight. Try for 3 sets of 10-15 reps each leg!

Who knew that you can use every wall (even the one in the bathroom) to strengthen your upper body? The world is your fitness oyster :-p I remember when I wrote this (gulp...two years ago). My editor and I thought the "stealth in the bathroom" idea would get readers to smile. I hope it makes you smile and inspires you to stand up and do some wall push-ups :-)

LOVE this Globe and Mail Stealth exercise - "The Figure Four". It feels so good. Aim to do it twice a day at your desk plus anytime you have to sit in a car or airplane for a long stretch of time. If one hip is tighter do an extra stretch on your tight side.

Try this "Stealth" exercise. You do the squat motion hundreds of times a day anyway - to go to the bathroom, sit down at your desk and get in and out of the car. You might as well squat properly and strengthen your lower body and core!
