The Blues Brothers guide to physical fitness


Shake a Tail Feather may have been a classic Blues Brothers song but it may also be a route to Health and Wellbeing.

According to a new study out of Canada, it seems that fidgeting, shaking your foot, drumming your fingers, swaying while standing etc, influences your blood oxygen level and is an indicator for VO2, or the amount of oxygen an individual can take in during exercise.  So go ahead and practice your Elvis the pelvis moves while you clean the kitchen. Not only will your friends and family get a kick out of it, it turns out it’s good for you.
