    Barn work and chasing my 13 mo old son.. Packing around a 25lb kid definitely kills the calories

    I do body isolation exercises, similar to the nautilus concept but without the equipment. I start and end with slow but steady calf stretches and then begin to exercise by first isolating my neck with head turns, chin tucks, etc. and work my down to shoulders, arms, wrists, rib cage, waist, hips, legs, etc., by using various stretching exercises. I have built up so much strength in this manner without having to worry about adding bulk muscle and I've found that this type of exercise has increased my ability to be considerably more supple! I've also found that I am now better able to overcome some old injury issues as a result of increased flexibility and can mount easier, etc.

    I play team sports such as netball and basketball. I also do dancing (ballet and modern), as well as bike riding and walking. I rarely drive anymore, except to get to work and to the barn.

    I get great ab exercises, whenever I lean forward and crunch to reach for my remote control on the coffee table.

    I get great hand eye coordination work when I am playing Call Of Duty, World At War when I am playing xbox live with my friends and family.

    I get great calf and buttox exercises when I walk up the stair case everytime I let my 2 dogs inside from going out for a piddle.

    My thumb is extremely strong from meticulously clicking the UP or DOWN button on my remote control

    Ahhh yeah, I just worked up a sweat thinking about it all.
