I don't know if I can call calisthenics exercise (which is called ラジオ体操 in japanese,
but I've never failed to do them every day, and play them on the piano.

ラジオ体操 No.1 has a long history in Japan, so some people consider it a second national anthem.
It was composed by 服部正 who was born in 1908 and passed away in 2008 (he led a long life),
some people don't like the song because it is associated with the unhappy period after WWII.

As for myself, it's good for my health and my piano practice.
ラジオ体操 No.2 is a little bit hard to and play,though.
