Should I Include Juggling As Exercise Minutes?

Saturday, July 28, 2012

I juggle about an hour a day. This supposedly burns about 214 calories an hour. Roughly equivalent to light yoga or a casual walk. Does this count as exercise? It certainly isn't like running, but it is a lot different than the calories burned reading a book too.

    I do have an old video of me juggling clubs on here. I am not good with clubs but I am a little better with them now than in the video. I have been expending a lot of time lately trying to get 5 balls down.

I like that everyone is supporting it as exercise! These means I am a lot more active than I thought. Christer, I actually started juggling as a way to relieve some of the stress of grad school and you are right. It is hard to think of anything else when doing it. Something similar to meditation I would imagine.

    It would count in my book, I am also sure it would clean the head!

    Okay, too cool that you juggle :) I agree with KMSIMMONS1 I think you need to post a video blog and show off your skills!!! (I juggle too but only 3 at a time!) not sure about counting it as exercise, but I don't see why not!

  It would count in MY book! You should post a video of your juggling - I would love to see it. I would love to learn how. Keep up the good work!
