assignment #64

#64 Teach us an exercise.
Teach us an exercise that you do regularly which yields results. Lead us through it, step by step, using a series of photographs, with captions below them. Test it out on a friend to make sure the instructions are accurate. Let us know what time during the day you do it, how many times a week, and how many repetitions. Tell us what the benefits of this exercise are (calming, tones ass, etc.) Let us know if this exercise is related to something you have done, or currently do (ballet, high school basketball warm-up, ashtanga yoga, self-invented, etc.) We are looking for unique exercises that you swear by and are longing to share with the world - exercises done regularly, almost religiously, not just one-time deals.

Find an open area.

Bring arms up and stand with your feet sholder length apart. Bend down and hold arms.And stand back up.Repeat at least 24 times, every night and see a change in your legs and abs (but only if you do more than 25 more than twice day every day-results take effort!).

Assignment #40

#40 Heal yourself
Describe in writing a non-traditional method you have used to heal yourself. Include diagrams, photographs, or drawings as needed.

"Heat is a wonderful thing"

1.) Get a sock (preferably one that doesn't have a mate) and some rice (measurements vary since sock sizes vary).

2.) Fill the sock with rice.

3.) Knot sock.

The next instructions are used when ailed with: cramps, sore muscles, twisted ankle, messed-up neck from sleeping, etc.

4.) Get your rice-sock.

5.) Place in Microwave and heat (on normal settings). Depending on how hot you want it time can be anywhere from one to two minutes, I would not recommend you putting it in any longer than two minutes.

6.) Apply to sore area.
You can re-use and re-heat as many times as you want. I've had my rice sock for a few years now; the rice doesn't get old or unusable.
