I am interested in identifying lifestyle changes which are beneficial to upper-body strength while also being practical for accomplishing other common tasks. In other words, activities which fit into a typical lifestyle and serve purposes other than just building strength.
For example, commuting via bicycle instead of by motor vehicle is an example of a lifestyle change that encourages lower-body and cardiovascular strength. I want similar ideas for the upper-body.
I am seeking ideas that would be considered practical for the average person, so "build your house in a tree, and climb a rope to it every day" is not what I am looking for.
