Painting Is A Workout!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Painting the interior of my house uses muscles I didn't even know I had.

Did you know painting uses 6 calories per minute according to Sparkpeople? that's 360 calories an hour! Add climbing up and down a ladder and you get a SERIOUS workout. My Thighs are killing me! Plus the stretching, the frequent up and downs and side to sides and also helps me work on my balance.
