The Hulk – Upper body workout when waiting for green light


Exercise: The Hulk
Situation: In the car waiting for green light
Exercises: Upper body

How many times a day do you find yourself in the car waiting for that annoying traffic light in front of you to turn green? Now you can use that time both for a great upper body workout and also some relaxation.

This exercise is easy peasy. When coming to a stand still, grab on to the steering wheel as hard as you can and tense every muscle in your upper body. Focus on your abs and chest. When I say tense, I mean tense. You should look like the Hulk and breathing shouldn’t be too easy. Stay super tensed for about 15seconds, or for as long as you can manage, or until the light turns green. After you relax you will feel great and if you had any stress it will be left behind at the traffic light.
