Sit on a chair and put one leg out in front of you. Point your toes and ‘write’ each letter of the alphabet in the air with your big toe. Then repeat the exercise with the other foot. This is great for people who like skiing, snowboarding or ice skating.
Put a tape measure on a wall outside your house and see how high
you can reach with one hand. Then, jump off one foot and see how high you can get. Then jump off both feet. Try to jump higher each day. This is useful basketball practice, by the way!
You don’t need a partner for this. Dancing is an aerobic exercise – this means it brings a lot of new oxygen to your muscles. This is really important because it makes your heart strong and keeps you healthy. Dance two or three times a week – at home or a discotheque!
Do you think helping at home is useless and boring? You’re wrong. Housework can make your muscles and bones strong. Cleaning floors or windows are also great exercises for your elbows and knees. And thirty minutes of digging the garden can burn 200 calories!
