How to Squeeze in a Workout Anywhere
Disclaimer: Results vary--getting a call back while following this program is not guaranteed.
Arms/legs: Wear ankle and wrist weights under your clothing--each step and shake of the hand will strengthen arm and leg muscles.
Lats: Identify an available bathroom stall, lock the door and perform chin-ups while gripping the top of the stall or simply hang if you find the chin-up motion too difficult. Stay clear of U.S. Senators.
Abs: Ask the receptionist to hold down your ankles while getting in some last minute crunches.
Butt: While sitting in a chair, continuously flex and release your gluteal muscles--with practice, you may even be able to perform this exercise during the actual interview.
Endurance: If you are taken on a tour of the office, ask if you can make a couple extra laps on your own--maintain a jogging pace throughout.
As with any exercise routine, be sure to obtain a physician's medical clearance before beginning this program. And, if you can't detect the sarcasm in this piece, your chances of getting hired are as likely as running a four-minute mile.
