12 Repetitions on Med-High

I’ve been reflecting on Bob Greene’s advice to include strength training into a workout routine. This is not an innovative suggestion to the fitness world, but I’m just wondering: shouldn't blow-drying your hair and man handling a hand mixer while blending a batch of cookie dough count as an upper body workout? ‘Cause seriously, my blow dryer is really heavy. And while hand mixers are helpful, there’s only so much they can do with a stiff Oatmeal Raisin Dough. I’m just saying.

Standing burns more calories than sitting, so if you were standing that should count too!

And yes, blowdrying definitely counts as a workout. Actually, there are some days when the process of lifting my arms long enough to shampoo is enough to call it a day...
