10 Things People Mistake as Exercise!

1. Walking to work

a. Using your legs? Congrats, it’s what they’re there for.
b. Base line activity isn’t enough to make up for your ridiculous diet.
c. Its doesn’t make up for the 8 hours sitting you do at work

2. Cycling to work

a. You’re a menace on the roads and if you’re unlucky someone might kill you!
b. Can’t do everyday because of the weather.
c. Contrary to popular belief, it can be very hard on the spine.

3. Gardening

a. Doesn’t take much energy unless moving trees around!
b. Again, contrary to popular belief, it can be very hard on the spine.

4. Vacuuming the house.

a. This should be done anyway and considering it exercise is just plan stupid unless you have a 4 story mansion! Most people don’t vacuum everyday for several hours!

5. Dancing while out at a party or club

a. Most people are drinking alcohol while doing this! Alcohol has a lot of energy in it, chances are you won’t be burning all of it! And what about the food you’re be consuming? Huh?    Morons!
b. Dancing in general can be great for cardiovascular health but what about your muscles.  Muscle require resistance and in a proper manner.

6. Shopping

a. How stupid do you have to be to consider this actual exercise? If you get sore from shopping you must be so lazy I don’t even wanna know you! If you do actually get sore which I hope you don’t I think its time to start ordering your shopping online!
b.  This myth probably originated from women weekly as a way to con their husbands into giving their fat behind the credit card…

7. Taking the Stairs instead of the Elevator!

a. I Wish there was no such thing as an elevator, we should all be using the stairs anyway! I’d love to see a sweaty fat bastard try to get up to his penthouse apartment on the 20th floor that would make my day!
b. For most people this shouldn’t be exercise its only walking!

8. Fidgeting

a. What sort of reject thinks they may loose weight being a restless fidgeter? Please point this person out so I can shove some Ritalin down his throat!
b. If your fidgeting is jumping up and down all day then that’s fine but see you in the insane asylum.

9. Hand washing the Car

a. Yep the car needs cleaning just wash it!
b. If you handwashing your car everday for a few hours good on you

10. SEX!
a. I don’t know about you but I’m not humping away 3 times a day for 2 hours at a time!  Maybe this is why porn starts are generally fit or maybe its because of the cocaine…
b. If you are fat then your probably not going to have the drive to keep up anyways.

Although I have mocked these things saying they are not exercise,  a lot of them should be included in your everyday life, just don’t count it as exercise. We get people telling us they do this stuff and then look at us like we should give them a cookie!  They get on the defensive saying they are active, yet they still weight in around 300kgs.  People don’t want to know the truth,  the truth is that most are LAZY and don’t want to take the 30mins out of their day to properly train.  There is 1440 minutes in everyday and most won’t even take 30 to help themselves.  Yet when they get diabetes, heart ailments or cancer they want people to help them but why should they? when this could have  been prevented by simply exercising properly.

What that? You want some more…
Yoga isn’t exercise!

Besides being invented by Hindus for meditation over 10,000 years ago; prior to white people using it to make money…

When looking at this chart you can see that yoga doesn’t burn many more calories than doing the dishes! There is an average of 420 cals in a Blue Berry Muffin that means it would take almost 2 and a half hours to burn off that 1 muffin doing yoga! This is not high aerobic activity at all like some claims that I have seen. A lot of people try doing yoga from a DVD (good f-ing luck). We recently purchased a DVD and a gave it a go but the instructions were so confusing we have been using the DVD as a drink coaster.
Yoga has some stress relieving qualities but this is more therapy rather than exercise. So sorry to all you yoga lovers fiftyone-43-four thinks your wasting your time counting this as exercise!

Since we are starting to get pissed off talking about this stuff, lets roast another….

Ab circle Pro

This thing is pretty much a scam, but has a very convincing ad! By making their product look like the best thing on the market with so called “fitness professionals” ,lots of testimonials and lean, sexy people they are making people that don’t know any better fall into their trap!

You get charged over $200 for something made with sub standard materials that if you weigh over 150lbs your gonna feel like its about to break! Many people have reported knee problems from using the Ab circle pro within minutes of being on it, if your over 30 I’d recommend not using and if your over 40 I definitely recommend avoiding it!  We aren’t even going to touch on the back injuries we have seen from this POS.

Alright, we are tired out.  We could keep going but we will stop there for now and continue later.

    I do agree that Yoga is not meant to be an exercise only but as an art in life and a life style. It’s an integrated system to make us feel way better than doing a pure, either aerobics or an-aerobics exercise alone. However, the journey to understand and gain from yoga takes too long. But once someone gains the benefits, she/he can’t live without it.

    I’m doing Aerobics for more than 5 years before dedicating more to yoga. As an Aerobics and Fitness Instructor, I was doing fine. No injury, good vitality & shape. But I do have a problem: Too much energy. Yoga helps people to maintain the energy level the way it comforts the body. Now I’m adopting yoga to a fitness system, inspired by ashtanga yoga for about 5 years too. Yoga still so much amazing even when people do it wrongly, simply as an exercise.

    I have no idea how’d you understand yoga, but some facts are: In Aerobics yoga, that’s how we call the ashtanga yoga, some men give up before reaching the first crucial 20 minutes. The pain is too much for them. Female participants make better student:)

    Yoga can be performed to fulfill both the aerobics and an-aerobics principles. It can be gracefully performed as a dance. So much fun.
