All you need is a pen, a good pair of legs and some hand/eye coordination. This is a really cool exercise to try.

You made this video for those who haven't even considered throwing dumbbells in the air and catching them on the fly :LOL:

LOL! @graoumia funnily enough this is even more challenging. The pen spins in the air so the brain has to work extra hard to minimize time lag from the visual information hat's supplied, it then has to model the trajectory and maintain the mind/body connection through precise hand/eye coordination all the while maintaining the body in a perfect sitting stance. Case in point that even I am not infallible in this, watch this first take:
I was filming, by then, two hours solid doing workouts and some other shorts and you can see how fatigue creeping in creates imprecisions in movements. :LOL:

LOL! @Fremen you can see my surprise as I was just so confident in my ability. I didn't feel particularly tired but then, as you can see from my description of what's actually involved in the movement I was and the moment I tried it without putting in extra effort in my concentration it flew off my hand (and totally cracked me up!). The human body is a miracle in its own right. The more we learn about its processes the more so it appears to be. The exercise snacks we've been putting together are really powerful shortcuts to maintaining our fitness both inside and out.

This is a balance exercise. It needs no warm up. At the same time these are the muscles it targets:

  • Glutes
  • Calves
  • Hip flexors
  • Core
  • Hamstrings
  • Lower Back
  • Quads

Ha ha; thank you @Damer as balance is a huge problem for me - always been a weak point, but I swear it has gotten much worse after the heart surgery (the heart-lung bypass machine).
By doing a little bit of balance every day I have a small gain , not much but as you say every win is a win! That shall be my motto for the next two weeks!

And for SAITAMA fans the full workout. Although it is an upper body combat-moves based workout it tasks the whole body to some extent. We can't punch without using our legs and feet. :LOL:

"Emotional content" in training is a sort of joke right out of Bruce Lee's "Enter The Dragon". Except, of course, it isn't because we have the science now to back up Bruce Lee's philosophical musings on the subject. This video is about that, exactly.
