Does washing cars considered an exercise?

 

You tend to burn cardio by the repetitive movements of your arms, stretching of your waists and your back, because these places tends to get sore and tired after a throughout car washing, polishing and waxing, vacumming and carrying full pails. Not much for the legs, unless you use your legs to do the repetitive movements.  [laugh]

 

Would it help you to keep fit wash your car weekly?

Just my opinion, only good for burning calories. In terms of fitness, don't think it helps. By fitness, I mean build muscle, strength and improving cardio/vo2max.

Consider it as ad hoc physical exercise becos only do it alternate month or sometimes, longer intervals.
Cannot do on regular basis becos I spent > an hr each time. Body ache almost everywhere next day. Haha...

Positive people also have negative thoughts,
They just don't let those thoughts grow & destroy them.

Aiyo, if collecting cardboard is an exercise, what else is not? Lol!

Of course washing car is a good exercise. It involves all the limps and the body perspires a lot. As to how many calories burnt, I wouldn't know!

After a while when your body get used to the routine the workout becomes less effective.

Even typing is a form of exercise. For the fingers. Those who have stubby fingers should type more..
