A reporter for a national newspaper has found a healthy way to use old tights as an opportunity to drive oneself towards a comfortable and free fitness kick.
Peta Bee noted that many people could now not afford the gym and that this could lead, in effect, to an unfit nation.
As part of a three-stage advice column in the Times which recommended the use of baked bean tins and shopping bags for the upper body, she noted that hosiery
could also be harnessed.
Called the "sixty-denier row", Ms Bee uses tights
as a resistance aid, sitting on the floor with knees slightly bent and tights under both feet. With palms facing inward, grabbing the tights and with elbows kept close to the body, people should make rowing motions, holding each movement for two seconds, doing it 30 times.
Another person getting great exercise in tights
is 14-year-old Matthew Leonardi, the first American boy invited to join Russia' Bolshoi Ballet School in Moscow.
