Friday Wisdom – Exercise

After my foot issues stopped me from my daily walks and now that the cold weather is here, I’m using my exercise bicycle to get my daily exercise. It’s okay, but boring. At least it’s in the warm and my foot isn’t in agonizing pain when I finish. That makes me a expert in exercise so here’s everything I know:

I’m not so sure the exercise bike is giving me the right workout. Most of the time I just feel like I’m spinning my wheels.

Sweat is really your muscles crying in pain.

If God had wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

The problem with joining a health club is that you have to actually show up to make it work.

Daily exercise means you’ll die healthier.

If you’re going to start doing cross-country skiing, I suggest starting with a small country.

Buns of steel is nice, but I’d rather have cinnamon buns.

I think my wife’s hairdresser is into exercising – she says she does lots of curls.

Did you know that hamburgers go to the gym? Yeah, they want tighter buns.

I thought of buying a treadmill, but that doesn’t get you anywhere.

Just read in the news that they found a hole in the gym locker rooms. The police are looking into it.

The easiest way to get a six pack is to go the grocery store.

I know people who use the gym religiously – twice a year and some holidays.

I was trying to write a joke about people who don’t exercise, but none of them were working out.

I did go to a gym for awhile and I dropped 10 pounds really fast. Sadly it landed on my foot and I didn’t go back.

    “… a small country.” – HA! Never did understand why people enjoy cross-country skiing when a slope will do the work for you instead.

    I’d be the one dropping the 10 pounds, Andrew. I did hurt my wrist exercising, had to wear a cast for weeks. I no longer do push-ups, not that they were recognizable anyway. More like trying to hop off the carpet.
