- 10 arm movements from side to horizontal
- 10 arm swings from touching fists in front to touching fists over the head

In three minutes the data showed I had a significant cardiac workout and my resting calorie burn rate went up 400 calories per day for the rest of the day for doing nothing more than this 3 minute exercise.
