When you are cutting with your rotary cutter, tighten your abdominal muscles and hold while you make your cut, then release.  Every time you make a cut, tighten your ab's, then release.  THERE YOU GO!!!  You have a built in AB WORKOUT while Rotary Cutting!

I have always laughed that my belly comes in handy when I'm cutting....I use it to hold the fabric from sliding down the table!!!! Maybe I need to rethink this!

It's a good idea, by the time you are done cutting you'll also have a flat or reduced tummy. I'll have to remember to do this. Thanks

I have an ironing workout, too. Leave your ironing board set up across the room so you have to GET UP and walk over to it. Better then having it an level right next to sewing machine so you just turn and iron. I get a cramp in my left elbow, in  the arm holding down the fabric, cutting fabric.

Great idea Sukochi!  I used to do something similar when I was still working in an office.  I always was happy to have the desk furthest from the copy machine.  That way I had to get up from my desk and walk every once in awhile...LOL!

My ironing board is in another room away from my sewing machines...that way I have to get up to press the pieces.  I'm getting my exercise that way, too, Sukochi.

Mom was always reminding me to suck in my stomach and throw back my shoulders.  I had a really flat tummy after four kids until I hit my mid fifties.  Now I find I'm lazy about doing those things.  So imagine my surprise when after cutting out the pieces for a queen quilt my tummy muscles were sore.  Mom must have been riding on my shoulder.   LOL  Love it!
