You may be wondering what exactly this video has to do with personal health, but Buttermilk actually is giving a few great pointers for those of us who want to stay in shape.
Buttermilk’s Three Exercise Tips
Please note: One of these tips is satirical, and you should not actually do it. Hint: It’s tip #3. Please do not actually try tip #3. Your friend will be very mad at you.
- Mix up your usual workout routine. Buttermilk is sprinting, leaping, flipping, and yelling. Her exercise program is very diverse, and it obviously keeps her happy. It’s easy to become bored with the daily exercise grind, isn’t it? If you’re feeling burned out, it could be time to try something new. Treadmill junkie? Try the elliptical. Toning or strengthening your upper body? Don’t forget to exercise your lower body and core. Tired of the gym? Move your routine outside during the next beautiful day.
- Take breaks during your day to get up and moving. Look at Buttermilk’s friends, just living their 9 to 5 sedentary lifestyle. Chances are your 9 to 5 is pretty similar. You’re sitting for most of the time, if not all of it. This is one of the worst things you can do to your body. Every hour, get up and get walking. Find a quiet area and do a couple sets of pushups, do some stretching, or even work a few yoga poses in there. You’ll feel great afterward and ready to attack the next hour of your day.
- Use your friends as springboards. You may soon find yourself on the treadmill with a friend right next to you. If you’re suddenly hit with an urge to do a backflip using your friend’s body as leverage, go for it! But try not to kick off of your friend’s face, as this might be painful. Simply springboarding off of his or her shoulder or oblique will work nicely.
Again, we cannot stress enough how bad of an idea #3 is. But if you refused to listen, please remember Sherman Health has Immediate Care Centers close by.
