Exercies for most of us spending time in front of a computer

We internet-addicts are a tragic group. We spend our days and nights creating and maintaining the greatest network of knowledge known to man, while wasting away (or, in most cases, ballooning up) in our extra-lumbar-support chairs. And what do we get in return for enslaving ourselves to our machines? Money? Fame? Sometimes, but more often than not all we get is a sore back, dry eyes, creaking finger joints, and carpal tunnel syndrome. What are we cubicle dwellers and home computer workers to do?! The answer is quite simple, actually: get some exercise.

Any of these exercises targeted towards computer users who's suffered a broken leg, by any chance  :-\

[OT]as I told you on IRC earlier, I broke my leg while playing with some kids at work. I work in a kindergarten and was playing football/soccer with a few kids when I slipped on some gravel on the asphalt where we were playing. 'CRACK'. I could actually hear the bone break, then thinking "you've got to be kidding..." :(

Feels kinda stupid when I've been playing football for 21 years without breaking anything then breaking my leg playing with 5-year olds  :-\

But luckily it wasn't a "bad break", so I didn't need any surgery or anything. Should be ok in 5 weeks, although my leg will probably look a little weird ;)[/OT]

Ouch - bad luck. At least you have a good excuse to sit with your feet up ;)

Heh, yeah, I suppose I should enjoy this period of not having to clean the bathroom, take out garbage, go grocerishopping, etc... ;)

Not that I recommend this though,  :huh:
