Row Upright for Your Obliques

Grab a bar of at least 10 pounds. Use one that gives you a workout but no real pain. Stand with legs shoulder-width apart. Hold the bar with your hands about a foot apart, palm facing down. Pretend you are rowing a boat. You are just standing, not sitting in a boat. Do slowly and steadily for five sets of ten repetitions.

My third book, Pocket Guide to Fitness, is available on,, and If you look up my name on those Web sites, you will find my other books The Boy in a Wheelchair and Life, Work and Play: Poems and Short Stories.
