When I got home form work the other day, my girlfriend announced with a smile that Dr. Oz had featured the “walrus exercise” on his show. Now, I’m not familiar with this particular exercise, so a demo was in order. Sadly, I was not thinking ahead fast enough, or I would have captured this on video. On second thought, had I done so, I might be looking for a new place to live right now, so perhaps it’s best I wasn’t recording…
Anyway – I have been unable to locate video of the actual walrus exercise, but here’s a description:
The Walrus Exercise
The Walrus exercise boosts your metabolism and stretches out your back muscles. (Oh, câ€™mon, you knew Doctor Oz was going to sneak in exercise somehow!)
To do The Walrus:
-Lie on the ground
-Place arms to your side
-Put hands on top of you like youâ€™re swimming
-Pull yourself up into a walrus move
Repeat several times.

Now, I’m not sure about the whole “boosts your metabolism” thing. Personally, I’ll stick with Tae Kwon Do forms. Actually, upon further reflection – an ACTUAL walrus workout would be more like this well-known video:
