Christie Brinkley Exercises While Brushing Her Teeth, Slicing Veggies

Posted: Updated:

Christie Brinkley talked to Shape.com about her workout regimen, which seems a little intense. We got tired just reading about it.

Here's her secrets:

When I dry my hair, I literally think about the times during your day when you are a captive audience. I think of drying my hair as really boring. I thought, 'OK, I'm going to multitask.' I'll dry my hair as though I'm sitting on a chair, even though there's no chair there. Then I'll do some squats. I'm always careful that my knee doesn't extend beyond my foot so I don't put stress on my knees, but you can do so much for your upper legs while you're drying your hair.

When I am brushing my teeth, I'm bending my leg behind me, or I'm lifting my leg up and holding it in that position so I'm squeezing my butt in. I can do that while I'm washing or slicing vegetables, too. Or I go up and down on my toes, working my calves a little bit.

I also try to get in 100 push-ups every day. It's really easy. I keep a rolled up yoga mat under my bed. I throw it down and I'll do 30 push-ups before I get in the shower. Then I do another 20 before I dry my hair, and now I've done 50. After I dry my hair, I'll come back and I'll do more.

What do you think? A bit much or great ideas?
