Can it!

If you're just starting out on an exercise program and you don't want to invest in equipment yet, you can use food cans as weights. The cans above are approximately 1 pound each. If you really want to start light, try a tomato sauce can (8 oz.) or a tomato paste can (6 oz.) I used the 1-pound cans yesterday when I was doing Denise Austin's "Hot Body Yoga" video. The irrepressible Denise Austin thankfully toned it down to a dull squeak for the duration. So I was able to achieve full calmness while only occasionally running from the room, holding my ears from all of Denise's darn peppiness. Peace, please. Thank you.
