Romance Novel Reader Workout XI

burly bicep holding stack of booksTime for another romance reader workout! You ready? This time we're talking about character employment – or lack thereof.

Like the last few workouts, can do all these exercises with a mat and your own body. No handweights are needed unless you want to use some. Grab your latest romance and prepare to work out like working out has never been work outed before.

Standard disclaimers still apply: dude, I'm really not a physician. I can recommend books to read but I can't discern your state of health or your physical limitations so by all means work hard but be kind to yourself. To put it another way, ask your doctor before beginning any exercise regimen.

Drink plenty of water and read plenty of books. Both are good for you. Especially the books. They make excellent weights, especially the hardcovers! Grab a stack and feel the burn!

And now, Romance Novel Reader Workout, Part XI, in graphic form suitable for pinning, sharing, printing, and pointing at!

You know what to do: grab your book & play along! If a scene in the book meets the following conditions, do the corresponding exercise. Then, after you finish a chapter, do that activity again.</p>
<p>It’s set a small town with a cute name:     25 v-ups<br />
The town name could also work for a<br />
     yoga studio or bakery:                      25 leg lifts</p>
<p>The heroine or hero has located from<br />
     the city:                                       25 push ups<br />
Job change or financial straits have<br />
     left main character adrift:                 25 burpees<br />
Adrift character admits to having no      idea what to do with self, despite<br />
     years of professional experience:          25 crunches</p>
<p>Obvious job opportunity presents itself:  1 min. plank</p>
<p>Character does not recognize      said opportunity for what it is:          25 lunges</p>

Feel the burn, y'all! I'm building future workouts on all the best romance cliches, because reading and exercising are great companions. If you have questions or suggestions for future workouts, please share, either in the comments or via email.

Remember, above all, unless you faint, puke, or die, KEEP READING! AND BREATHING! 

Thank you to BigStock for the booklifting image!

    Just ran across this last night in The Black Lyon: there is a significant difference in height between h/h, but her butt always lines up neatly with his groin while standing. In The Black Lyon, the top of her head doesn’t reach his shoulder, but when he teaches her how to use a longbow and stands behind her, of course her butt is nestled right up against his Mighty Wang. That’s some very odd anatomy, people.
