1987 Soviet TV morning Exercise Program

It is remarkable that the style of morning exercise shows “Behind the Iron Curtain”, was remarkably similar to the morning exercise shows that I would catch on cable TV as a kid.

The lighting, the music, the neck straining and to a lesser extent the clothes (although I thought the one lady was wearing jeans) are all about the same.

I had two older sisters who flirted with the various 80s exercise fads. I never liked it when they watched this stuff, it took valuable time away from the shows I liked to watch. Still these shows do bring back memories. Usually of me giving my sister the crook eye while waiting for her to finish exercising.
