And now... time for the KMB Workout!
That's right, get in shape with your friends from the Kowloon Motor Bus Company! It's fun, it's easy, and in no time you'll be in the best shape of your life! How? Just follow these simple steps to physical fitness:
1. Make sure the bus is just pulling away from the kerb and start running to catch it. Whether you do or don't, the wind sprints will give you a great aerobic workout!
2. Climb Those Stairs: When taking double-deckers, climb up and down the stairs. You'll get the added benefit of working those extra muscles to keep stable, as the bus is in motion while you're climbing!
3. Stand Whenever Possible: Sitting is for wimps! Grab the rails, push and pull your body in different directions to avoid falling over when the drivers take hard corners. In no time you'll develop well-defined shoulders, pecs, and arms, plus those ever-critical core muscles! A super upper-torso program!
4. Knee Bends: It's just like surfing! Standing provides the added bonus of quadriceps and calf strengthening and toning. Use the muscles in your legs to absorb the vicious side-to-side rocking of the bus, (especially in the back), and use the extra stress of those hard, brake-heavy stops to get that burn in your quads!
5. Let's not forget the forearms: no workout would be complete without working the forearms. How do you work them effectively? Try to prevent momentum from bouncing your melon off the ceiling, walls and rails in the bus; grab the straps or rails and hold tight! That's all there is to it!
But will you see results? Trust me, you'll notice immediate results. You'll also ensure your survival on the way to your destination. The longer the trip, the better the workout! What could be more fun? The KMB Workout: Try It Today!*
