So another study to tell us what we already know..., sedentary lifestyles are not good for your health. Got it. :)

All the more reason I want to get out of my current 'career' that is a desk job, and get into a job that's got me on my feet getting around much more.

Being right at the end of Power School (Comp next Tuesday), I can agree that sitting is definitely bad for your health. Trying to lose weight, increase my fitness, deal with stress, and successfully finish NPS has been a challenge. I haven't felt this out of shape in a long time.....

It has not effected me any...probably because I have lifted weights ( yes even on 2 fast attacks back by the R-114s) and ran (4-6 miles 3/4 times a week) religiously for the last 25 years and have watched what I eat. If people want to do it they can make time as your health is a pretty important concern. I work out for 35-40 minutes even on days I work 12 hr shifts because my drives to/from work are only 15-20 minutes. I see other guys my age that have back, shoulder and knee problems from their physical jobs and would take sitting as the better alternative than abusive physical work as I get to chose the type of excercise that builds my body versus abusing it in some cases and I can change my regiment as I feel like as I get older.
