Spring Cleaning Exercise

With spring time approaching, people are in spring cleaning mode. They spend time cleaning out their closets, dusting their furniture, and just getting out all the winter blahs to welcome in the fresh spring air. I just spent the past hour cleaning out my closet, and can I just say I am so ready for summer clothes because they take up so much less space!

Did you also know that cleaning is a great way to burn calories? I mean cleaning can cause some serious sweat. Here are some estimates for calories burned during cleaning for 1 HOUR:

Sweeping Floors: 156 calories

Mopping: 170 calories

Vacuuming: 170 calories

Dusting: 102 calories

Washing Dishes: 88 calories

Multiple Household Tasks (aka spring cleaning): 204 calories

What is your favorite “cleaning exercise”?
