The phrases and exercises are quite comical in this context, but I wanted to take a moment to discuss multitasking whilst exercises. If you are at the gym going to town on the elliptical, why not take a book? I used to study French on the elliptical, and I’ve certainly seen people doing their biology homework!
If you’re watching t.v., why not take a moment to stretch? Do some lunches, a split (or as much of a split as you can do), try and touch your toes, or do some sit ups. (I like to do reps of 25 or 50 sit-ups, but you can set your own pace. If you aren’t used to sit ups, start with reps at 10.)
