The recent flood of articles about romance that can best be described as “dubious” means there is even MORE opportunity for working out. Here are MORE exercises based on those elements so frequently found in sketchy examinations of romance. Extra points if you do each exercise while holding one eyebrow up, AND giving the side-eye.
Like the previous workouts, you can do all these exercises with a mat and your own bodyweight. No additional weights are needed unless you want to use some. Extra weight ups the challenge.
Standard disclaimers still apply: nope, still 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 lots of water, read lots of books. K?
And yes! By reader request, I have a convenient PDF of all the workouts so far. Each page has two images on it, and the PDF is 1.5MB+ in size. You are welcome to print and distribute the workouts, give them as gifts, or use them as bookmarks.
And now, Romance Novel Reader Workout, Part XVII, in graphic form suitable for pinning, sharing, printing, and pointing at!
If you have questions or suggestions for future workouts, please share, either in the comments or via email.
And remember the rallying cry of the workout: unless you faint, puke, or die, KEEP READING! AND BREATHING!
