    I was wondering if Wii does really give alot of excrise cause i be seeing alot of topics on different places about muscle sores and stuff from playin wii... I'm getting them as well. Yesterday i played 90 min of Wii sports boxing, and this morning till now my muscles feel like shit... Yes i am fat weighing 138 pounds but hey it's not that bad.. i still get B+ in grade 7 gym and boy is it hard in grade 7.... So ya post here if u think so

    your muscle sores reason you hardly do any exercise, if you keep on training you wouldn't feel muscle pain..

    Well don't confuse this for excercise. You are working muscles that you currently don't use daily. But no way will the Wii get your heart pumping enough to do enough of a positive influence to your body.

    Your soreness will go away rather quickly since there is no wieght. I also think it is better to get sore from moving then to get sore from sitting still so long that your muscles tense up in your shoulders. I remember that use to happen in the longer GT races.

    Oh yes, you get a work out, especially boxing, I wouldn't be surprised if people built a good bit of muscle (nerds will turn into muscle) this will be a new era of muscular nerds who play wii!

    It's so funny that people are actually in pain. I mean, it's a little piece of plastic. Try swinging a real baseball bat, or a real golfclub all day!

    I just played Wii for the first time today. It was fun.

    If I play with my Wii more than about 3 times per day, then I start to chafe.

    :S This topic goes to show the lack of daily physical exercise people do, welcome to the 21st Century.

    For a workout you need to be sweating [​IMG] , until you do that it is not really a work out but just muscle's you havent used.

    In any case you should take time of after playing relax, wind down ...

    Attach some heights in the controllers to a improved muscle activity.

    I advice jogging about 30 to 40 minutes before a game session, as well as a streching before and after that.

    It is an obscure Nintendo campaing to turn us, nerds, good looking to the opposite sex (or the same, if you like) by playing their video games.

    Thank you, Nintendo!
