I second the vote on kettlebells. I use 'em while watching TV, and carving out 10 or 20 minutes isn't as hard as finding an hour.

I keep a set of light dumbbells next to my easy chair to use periodically while relaxing, especially during commercials. Resistance bands would be even better, involve legs, too. I'm hoping to get a set soon.

Hi, I know I've been seriously slacking as a team leader for this section but honestly I've put myself at the bottom of the list once again as I juggle 2 jobs, home life & responsibilities, and deal with family health issues.
I was hoping team members could post here suggestions for quick exercises to do while juggling a hectic end of 2011 life.
