A workout tape that is unlikely to ever seem overly strenuous or hard to follow to anyone. Larry "Bud" Melman of the late-night David Letterman Show put together this lighthearted film for the masses who prefer minimal exertion in their daily lives. Watch and learn how to perform the rather advanced "thumb press" exercise while holding the nearest remote control. Do an impressive arm curl with the telephone receiver between calls. Find out how to slouch in ways that may really feel good, even if they're not exactly what the doctor ordered. Be sure to stay tuned for the special cooking segment. Bud shares one of his favorite recipes that incorporates all of the five main food groups: salt, sugar, cholesterol, MSG and alcohol. See if this approach to exercise and diet is actually the best-kept secret of all.
