Roundercise


Round Exercise, also known as Roundercisces

The strategy behind Roundercising is a mixture of my outdoor tree-climbing, mountain-hiking, roller-skating and bodybuilding lifestyle. I discovered five types of Roundercises that either move your body in a circular motion, use Round shapes such as balls or wheels, increase healthy circulation inside your body, balance your body with your mind, relax your whole being, or Round out your muscles to create a curvier, sexier, and more fit physique.

CAAUTIONConsult with your doctor before Roundercising. Side affects may cause you to feel more energetic, along with enjoying less fat clinging to the inside of your body or jiggling on the outside of your body. You are likely to live longer, so be aware that you may need to plan your retirement accordingly.

Stretching Roundercises

Stretching Roundercises elongate your body, allowing more room for each of your joints and muscles. Stretching Roundercises can help reduce the aches and pains many of us have when we try to get out of bed in the morning.

EXAMPLEStretching Roundercises include warm ups, yoga poses, cool downs, hanging upside-down on an inversion contraption, and imitating your cat or dog upon awakening by stretching your toes and yawning unabashedly.

The Roundest muscle is the Gluteus Maximus, also known as the Butt. This muscle powerfully pulls your leg backwards when you walk or run.

Sweaty Roundercises

Sweaty aerobic Roundercises help you increase your stamina so you can keep up with your fit friends, neighbors or energy-filled kids. They improve your cardiovascular health so you can climb stairs and do other normal tasks without huffing and puffing.
