If you're like so many Americans, you want to get in better shape but don't have the time to go to the gym. Between work, family and trying to maintain a semblance of a social life, who has time to do much of anything? But we here at BW are true believers in the advantages of multi-tasking, so we say, why not combine a workout with another activity. Sure, some people say they "enjoy" running or even "like" 100-mile bike rides. But we think these people are a little daft. Instead, try giving yourself an ab-busting workout to beat all others while sitting in a smoky club nursing a drink. All it takes is a talented comedian or two to have you bent over double, laughing so hard you're no longer able to make intelligible noises, just squeaks and grunts. There's no need to feel self-conscious about guffawing, chortling, snickering or giggling either—everyone else is doing it, too! Don't worry about that dull ache, that just means it's working.
