Health Tip: Housework Will Keep You Fit

It's as good as a gym workout

(HealthDayNews) -- If you're stuck with housework when you'd really rather be at the gym, you'll be happy to learn that you're getting the same workout either way.

According to an article a few years back in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy, vacuuming and cleaning the bathroom both increase the heart rate and produce as much circulatory strain as a period of moderate aerobic exercise at the gym.

And while the amount of strain varies from person to person, vacuuming generally causes more strain than bathroom cleaning does.
