Submitter: This book is currently on the shelves at a local public library. Who knew people in the 1980’s were so busy that they had to fit in exercise while waiting for the commuter train or even an elevator? I guess I just assumed that they stayed fit & trim by lifting over-sized mobile phones. While a book on this topic could be useful to our modern day inactive office workers, it would really need updated pictures… it’s hard to take a good stretching technique seriously when the demonstrator is wearing giant should pads or a sleeveless sweater.
Holly: If you need me, I’ll be bench pressing the PDR, or maybe the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. That one’s got a good heft to it too. (After which, I will NOT look anything like these people. I’ll be all sweaty and red-faced.)
