Do like Dr. Oz does!

People ask me all the time for “homework” or an exercise routine they can do on their own. If you read Motion Starved often you will have seen short, home workouts I’ve posted in the past. This time after pondering for hours I decided to simply steal the workout Dr. Oz does. It’s a good one as it wakes up all your muscles, promotes strength, balance and flexibility.  Do it in the morning, according to the good doctor you’ll be ready and raring to start your day. I will warn you, this routine contains quite a few push ups. Do them on your knees or against the wall if you must, but make the effort.

Watch the video and work out along with Dr. Oz a few times to get it down. The list of the exercises below is for your traveling pleasure. You’ll need to watch the video for a better direction however.

Give it a try; what do you have to lose? It’s only 7 minutes of your time.
