Expanding on previous exercises, we’re adding some weight to the exercises. Don’t worry if you don’t have weights or dumbbells. You can use things around your house, like water bottles or soup cans. Try adding or alternating these low-impact exercises to the seated workout from April 24th (COVID Brief #05).

Recipe: Traditional Hummus

This week’s recipe comes from Brightside’s Resident Relocation Coordinator, Ahmed Abdulrazak. Ahmed is the father of young twins. He enjoys woodwork and watching all types of documentaries. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Microbiology, and I’m sure much like many of us, would love to live in Hawaii someday!



  1. Drain the can of chickpeas and give them a quick wash


  2. Add chickpeas and all other ingredients into a blender and squeeze a lemon over ingredients


  3. Give it 3-4 minutes in the blender (or use a hand blender and a large bowl/container if you don’t have a blender)


  4. Serve your hummus it with pita bread, tortilla chips, or potato chips


  5. Try adding some olive oil to top your hummus for a better look, or get creative with other toppings and garnish like paprika, extra chickpeas, or parsley.
