Physical fitness routines that aid piano playing

Being physically fit, bottom line, is always helpful to piano playing. That’s why I frequent the gym every day. But I’ve found specific activities that more directly improve my endurance, and increase forearm and upper arm strength. (specifically my tube stretch routines that I demonstrate on video)

The Gravitron is also one of my favorite machines, along with the arm pull-up housed over at the Y. (I stay away from hand weights because of the strain it puts on my wrists.)
