Book game


Borrowed from Naked Boy Chronicles

Here are the rules:

1) Grab the nearest book
2) Open the book to page 123
3) Find the fifth sentence
4) Post the text of the next 3 sentences (#5,6,7) on your blog (or in these comments too), along with these instructions.
5) Don't search out a "cool" or "intellectual" book from your bookshelf! Just grab what is closest. No cheating!

The slowness eliminates momentum, forcing the muscles to work to complete exhaustion. That, in turn, encourages them to rebuild more quickly and thoroughly. Weightlifting can also make bones stronger and denser, a godsend for young and old.
