Stop exercising and go outside!

Apparently a study a BYU says that those wii games actually do help you exercise. Its nothing major, but is the equivalent of walking for the same time. Not exactly a great way to prepare for a triathlon but it is certainly better then packing on the pounds during a video game marathon. And the game that they are referring to isn’t even one of the games designed to get people moving, just a regular game.

    The problem I have with Wii games is simple motions can mimic complex ones. For example, on golf, moving my arm across my body counts as a swing. It might seem like a good idea because in MI we can only go outside 6 months a year. But, I do not think anything will ever replace good old fashion exercise
