The Daisy Workout

Five days a week Roger is sitting at a desk in his office.  For five days a week, the only exercise he gets is to walk out of his office and to stand at this sign for a few minutes and  I think we'd all agree, that's not much exercise.

That all changes when the weekend rolls around.  Especially a weekend like this one where Roger spent hours getting Daisy prepared for the Model A Texas Tour coming up later this week.  Now that's a good workout.

Roger started out with a relatively simple fender-flex.  This is a good warm up exercise.

Next came a stretch and reach exercise.  It's good for neck muscles.

Look at him stretching his neck to get his head underneath the hood.  He was really working it here.

After that came the back-slide.

The back-slide is rather difficult, but it helps if you push against a bar stool with your foot. The further you can slide under that chassis, the better.

Once he was flat on his back he was able to do some wrench-lifts.  Try holding those things straight up in the air for several minutes.  It's a great way to strengthen your forearms.

Roger was tired when he got finished, but it was a good tired.  

Our shop dog, Banjo, on the other hand, was exhausted.  He had spent the whole day watching.
