Daily Challenge Saturday Jun. 16, 2012
Play air-drums to an up-tempo song that you love.
How to do it
Clear a space, put on a song you love that has a fast beat, sit down in a chair, and play your air drums! Make sure your drum kit is large enough that you'll have to reach out in front and to the sides to really rock the song. Don't worry if you're not on beat every time, just have fun as you hit those imaginary drumsticks on your invisible drums and cymbals. And if you're still feeling the beat after one song, keep going.
Why it matters
Drummers sometimes look sweaty during a concert for a reason: it's hard work! Drumming can quickly get your heart rate up and bring extra oxygen into your body. And moving your arms out in front and to the side can provide a gentle stretch to your muscles. Finally, hitting those cymbals gives your wrists a nice, quick stretch, too.
The Beatles' drummer Ringo Starr has a way with words, and some of his lyrical turns of phrase became titles of Beatles songs, including "Tomorrow Never Knows," and "A Hard Day's Night."
Played air drums to "We Didn't Start the Fire."
Another to exercise to add to my daily exercises
I am THAT person in the vehicle next to you who sings, plays the piano, and the drums.......
Janet Jackson's If, towards the end of the song its just music :)

My Dad is doing his radio program as we speak on KDNK, public radio station for the Roaring Fork valley =) Been jammin to him all morning, get me some air drums going for sure!! We are a VERY musical family, and somebody is always, whistling, humming, air drumming, tappin their feet, and/or singing. There's not a song out there that somebody in this family doesn't know!!
I saved this challenge for a day I was working from home. It still felt a bit silly. :)
I do this in my car! Hahaha!
