The newest fitness sensation is “Prancercise,” which is a type of workout using ankle weights and jogging like a horse prances. I watched the video featuring Joanna Rohrback, the wacky woman who created it, and decided to give it a try. I had no weights so I thought about duct-taping my two dogs to my legs and prancing on my front lawn. I could see myself getting quite a workout with two angry dogs bouncing off my calves like mummies. I have no idea where I came up with that illusion but felt pretty good thinking about it. I doubt they would have liked the removal of the duct tape. Have you ever seen a hairless Corgi? Not a pretty sight. I decided my calves would lose a significant amount of hair too. And I’m sure one of the dogs would have repaid me with a bite just before the neighbors called the cops to have me arrested for animal abuse.
I love my dogs, Bindi Sue & Dora, who, by the way, now have their own Facebook page. So I aborted this plan as another failed attempt at exercising. Thankfully the Prancercise woman didn’t abort her plan because if she had, I would never have had this amusing idea.
I now revert back to my best exercise: sitting in front of my laptop here in the Man Cave and having a good cigar with happy dogs sitting at my feet.
What low impact exercise programs do you suggest? Wacky is just fine, too.
