Health Tip – May 11 – Exercise During TV Commercial Breaks

Filed under: Dee Dee |

Overweight and under-exercised, the human body leaves itself open and vulnerable to a myriad of chronic conditions, including arthritis, back pain, heart disease, diabetes, etc.

During an hour-long television show, there will be around six commercial breaks which would total about 15 minutes.  If you exercise during those commercial breaks, you can do 15-minutes of exercise that you normally would not have found time for.  Do each movement to the rhythm of your breathing.  A few examples of what you can do are these:

  • With arms held straight out sideways at shoulder height, do circles forward and backward
  • With arms held straight out sideways at shoulder height, twist the torso to the left and to the right
  • Side bends
  • Standing toe touches (with arms stretched high overhead)
  • Push-ups
  • Deep knee bends (squats)

Doing this once a day, you can improve your health.  Doing it twice a day, you will get twice the benefit.
