Exercise Mats Are Better

Exercise Mats For A Better World

I watch two movies on Saturday, Revenge of the Sith, and War of The Worlds. As you know one if the Star Wars franchise where Anakin Skywalker become Darth Vader. The other is the movie starring Tom Cruise in the movie based on the Orson Welles Story where the aliens come down to Earth and try to destroy the world that we live in. In both movies it is a struggle between good and evil and we don’t know who will win until the bitter end. With WOTW it is the humans who inevitably prevail. In ROFS we seen Anakin transform in the evil and in the second last seen starting what will become the death star. But after that we see Leah and Luke being place in the foster care of two loving families.

These two movies got me thinking about how much better the world would be if every one, including Darth Vader, would just buy some exercise mats and work off that excess energy that makes them do so much bad. I reckon if Dark Vader had been a gym junkie he never would have turned to the dark side and in fact would have continued to be a good guy. With some good exercise mats he never would have gotten into the fight with Obi Wan Kenobi and therefore would not have been render the cripple which gave what’s his name the opportunity to turn him into Darth Vader in the first place. Indeed the “Empire” as they called themselves, never would have succeeded if the population had embraced a healthy lifestyle instead of fighting the Jedi. 

Even other characters such as Jaber the Hut would have been a much nicer person if he had just purchased some good exercise mats such as jigsaw mats and got off his slimy fat butt and done some exercise. His scene when he is trying to eat Princess Leia is just dodgy to the extreme. I mean I am not say it would have made it any different if he had been thinner but I can imaged that Leia would have been grossed out by the big fat slob. I mean the civilisation in the Star Wars movies are meant to be advanced so some good gym mats would have been expected. That said I have never seen a scene of people working out in those movies.

In War of the Worlds it is pretty much similar. You have this advanced civilisation that is invading Earth. They managed to get their space ships here and land on the planet. Yet even though they are so advanced they failed to figure out that they might come and catch a cold and die here. The dam flu is what got then in the end? Again had they had themselves some good exercise mats and worked out a bit maybe their immune systems would have been stronger and they would have survived. I guess it is luck us that they didn’t. Whatever!

Thankfully there have never been more options available to people then there are today. There is a plethora of exercise options available to people. From Yoga too aerobic and everything in between.

What is exercise?

So what is exercise? Wikipedia defines exercise as; “Exercise is any bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness.”[1] So in other world it is any activity that is design to keep your body fit and health.

What is important is that when they are doing exercise that they are taking actions to make sure that through exercising they are not actually hurting themselves.

They can also use strapping to keep the joint tight. These are some of the many things people should consider whilst training.


Cross-Training For the Masses

Cross-training basically just refers to using a whole heap of training methods in your training. So instead of just doing one activity you might do a few different one. So you might mix lifting weights with skipping rope. Indeed you may mix four, five or even ten different exercises to make sure you get a full body work out. Cross training also requires a person to take measures to ensure that they are not going to get injured.
