Our pal, Jonathan Dunsky writes, runs, and reviews diet and exercise info. He asked to reach you, our Fun and Fit readers with his guest post on Big Bad Ab Myths, written especially for this site. While he is giving us the day off, we will be working on our Abs. Maybe…..
What do shoulders and the theme song from the very old television show “Rawhide” have in common? They’re both rollin’, rollin’, rollin’. Want better posture? We start with some easy exercises to fix rounded shoulders. “We” means Alexandra – Kymberly is out of town (the slouch). hahaha. Get it?! She’s a sloucher. Oh, stop myself! No, don’t!
We offer four more useless exercises that seemed oh-so-clever at the time. By “at the time” we mean “BCS – Before Common Sense” as these moves were either plain silly or actually contraindicated (bad for you). Raise your donkey leg to the hydrant if you did these moves!
Alexandra volunteers to be Kymberly’s guinea pig (or possibly a rabbit) for left and right side posture assessment. “Thank you and I hope we pass the audition.” Good posture is at your fingertips. Sort of.
Just in time for Halloween Alexandra and Kymberly went on a field trip to their closets and the thrift store to help you choose just the right 1980s or 1990s fitness fashion outfit. Vote for your favorite (if you can narrow down all that goodness)!
Useless, silly, injurious, or just plain “culturally interesting” — how would you describe some of the exercises we used to do that make no sense and achieve unknown goals? Scratch that — moves we STILL see people do even today. Join us on a visual romp through a few of the lamest stuff we ever taught, did, and confess to.
Your posture is telling a story and it may not be the same one front to back or side to side. Want to make sure your posture is not a horror story? Nor farce? Maybe you’re going for a romantic comedy with great alignment of the stars and joints. Knowing what to look for in yourself or others will be easy once you view this video. Have someone do this posture check on you – it will reveal quite a bit about your alignment, balance, and whether the camera adds 10 pounds.

Are you rotten or ripped to the core? Do you move from the inside out or the outside in? You can quickly assess whether your core (abs and back) is helping you or “hanging out.” Try this simple exercise and get to the core of the matter. Click on the title to read more.
Do you wear out the inner seams in your jeans and shorts because your thighs rub together? Susan is having an Inner Thigh crisis and wonders whether Fun and Fit have exercise ideas that incorporate her stability ball, which she currently uses as a closet accessory. Kymberly falls for the ball and Alexandra’s evil trick in this week’s video.
