In what appears to be a pre-holiday promotion, Gold's Gym put out a press release touting its "Fit for the Phone Workout." Gold's Gym, a leading authority on health and fitness, has created a number of simple exercises to make sure Americans are fit for their own phone.

The goal is to help eliminate these pesky mobile maladies ... one smartphone user at a time.

The following are examples of exercises are part of the Gold's Gym "Fit for the Phone Workout" and can be sprinkled throughout the day at the workplace, at the gym and on the go.

At Your Desk:

>> Thumbells: Tap each finger with the thumb of the same hand. Repeat five times.
Palm Twists: Alternate tapping the palm of your hand and the back of your hand against your thigh as quickly as you can. Repeat 20 times.

>> Reverse Hand Crunch: Open your hands, and spread your fingers as far apart as possible. Hold for 10 seconds, and repeat eight times.

At the Gym:

>> Lower Back Extensions (a.k.a. Superman) - 3 sets of 10
Grab a stability ball and balance on it with your stomach on top and your toes on the ground. Let your torso fall over the ball, and relax your arms by your sides. Starting with your head and upper back, slowly lift your spine until it's straight. Slowly return to start. This move will strengthen your lower back, helping you to stand up straight.

>> Romanian Deadlift With Upright Row - 3 sets of 10 to 12
Stand upright, your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold dumbbells in front of your thighs as you lower them, keeping your back straight and your chest out. Then lift up the dumbbells almost to your chin, with your bent arms parallel to the ground. Slowly return to starting position.
