76 seconds of video, and I ain't left my desk, yet!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

Following the raving success of my BicepCurls for Realtors, here is the second in the serious.... ooops, I meant series!!(Freudian Slip there)...

 

For Realtor bloggers, (it can be adapted for any type of blogger as well) whose fingers can easily become abused and neglected and end up cramping... which makes it very difficult to use lockboxes, cell phones... and to do that "pointing thing"...

As a public service here is a simple warm-up exercise that will help prevent problems before they start.  Be sure to keep the number of reps to a minimum so you don't overheat.

Go easy on me, I'm still getting
my feet wet in this medium.

I'm impressed that you can type.  You aren't a hunt and pecker.  You keep those fingers on the home keys like a pro.

Kriselie - uhh... yeah!

Chris Ann - I took typing in Jr. High... (just so I could hang out with a class full of girls!!)  I'm a 90 w.p.m. touch typist.

Kathleen - don't know what you're talkin' bout!  (  ;-))

Susan - very important for your fingural well-being.

Sally - they were my favourite, too.

Alan, The Public Service comment was very thoughtful.  Many members will likely strain a pinkie and hopefully not "The Big One" , if they do not properly warm-up, as you have demonstrated.  Your video will help prevent many injuries and lost work days for Real Estate Agents and Bloggers.  While many viewers will incorrectly see these related videos as an attempt at comedy, I appreciate your real intent, of focusing our attention on the need to get in shape.  Just imagine if we were not able to open a lockbox, use a cell phone and do that "pointing thing".  We would no longer be able to do our job.  Thank you for preventing injuries and saving jobs.  Best wishes always.

Another informative and insightful video Alan.  I'm still on step one of your exercise program from your last video.  I hope to work up to this new step before you put out video number 3.   I do have one question though, did you have your camera attached to your forehead for this video?
