EXERCISE (post by Sam)

This post brings a big smile to our face… every day while we are away on this adventure, the boys are required to have some form of exercise.  Last Tuesday,  Sam was trying to convince Dave & I that playing with his new Chinese yo-yo would be good enough for his exercise that particular day. We did not agree and Sam continued to complain and protest! After listening to this for awhile, we told Sam that he was now required to write 400 words on “What is Exercise”. Sam thought this was the worst punishment ever and these are the 330 words he came up with: (read the many sports Sam thought of to get a good chuckle, including extreme sheep shearing).

Exercise is any physical activity like baseball, basketball, Pogo stick, running, foot ball, soccer, hockey, mountain biking, rock climbing, long boarding, hiking, tennis, rugby, pole vault, long jump, triple jump, high jump hurdles, street luge, swimming, net ball, doge ball, Life size Dutch Blitz, hop scotch, kick ball, lifting weights and other gym machines, water skiing, wake boarding, surfing, snowboarding, sand boarding, paddle boarding, kite surfing, Hang gliding, paragliding, croquet, curling, golf, playing catch with any thing, Australian rules football, discus, paintball, airsoft, Nurf war, sailing, kayaking canoeing, shot put, bowling, hammer throw, javelin, skiing, paddle boating, jump rope, cow pie toss, juggling, jumping on a trampoline,  skim boarding, pillow fights, base jumping, archery, hand ball, unicycle riding, horse racing, gymnastics, food fight, extreme sheep shearing, rip sticking, slack lining, BMX, wrestling , boxing, mixed martial arts, fencing, volley ball, beach volley ball, racquet ball, soft ball, tee ball , road biking, tree climbing , body surfing , tubing, shoveling, building a fire, squash, polo, water polo, iron man, bull riding, foot volley ,knee boarding, badminton, parkour, gladiatorial fighting, board sailing, boogey boarding, worlds strongest man, sledge hockey, wheelchair basket ball, wheel chair racing, sledding, jumping on Matt, tug of war, shooting, equestrian, rope climbing, pole climbing, synchronized swimming, club swing, swimming obstacle course, eating competition, professional farting, F1, NASCAR, rally, motor cross ,jet ski snowmobiling , ATV and mini golf.

The medical definition of exercise is this: Exercise is physical activity that is planned, structured, and repetitive for the purpose of conditioning any part of the body. Exercise is used to improve health, maintain fitness and is important as a means of physical rehabilitation.

The Webster dictionary definition of exercise is this: regular or repeated use of a faculty or bodily organ bodily exertion for the sake of developing and maintaining physical fitness.

I can’t handle writing this any more so please let me get away with this it is pretty close so……            THE END
