Pole-dancing on Metro
Post fitness columnist Vicky Hallett writes in the MisFits column today that transit riders can use their commuting time to maintain their health. Some of the advice from today's column:
If you're standing by a pole:
-- Get a grip and lift up on your toes to perform calf raises.
-- Take one foot off the ground and pulse the leg inward and then outward. Try not to kick anyone.
If you're squished into a seat:
-- No one will notice if you give your abs or rear end a squeeze. Or twist your waist to one side, pretend you're straining to read the map, and tighten those obliques.
--Try lifting your feet slightly off the ground and pumping your legs together. Then lean back, raise your feet higher and tap up and down for a kind of crunch.
