Years ago, Lazer Brody was a member of Israel‘s special forces in the IDF, where he often went on secret-agent-like missions that required great physical skills. Later, he became a Hasidic Jew and a rabbi. Now he has a very different physical routine–he spends most of his day studying Torah at a desk.
That’s why he developed an exercise program.
The idea seems a bit silly, but the regimen is both effective and clever–stretches, breathing exercises, and half-push-ups (all done from a sitting position). According to the Torah, humans were created “in the image of God,” so it’s good to know that, even when we’re too busy for a full workout, it’s possible to keep our bodies as fit as our minds.
