    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    In my classes we do an exercise of 10 repetitions of "launches". From a sitting position with a pair of dumbbells at our sides we stand, lift the dumbbells to our shoulders and then push them overhead (one side at a time), return to the starting position and repeat 10 times. Have a rest till breathing normal, then repeat for 5 lots of ten. You may have to raise the level of your chair with cushions to give your legs a good start.

    Thanks for sharing, babsnz!

    It's great when members reveal what is working for them, so we all can switch our activities up to avoid boredom and too much routine. Here are a few other Upper-Body and No-Gym Exercises that you may like.

    Keep up the great work!
