Keep in mind, that is typing constantly for one hour, not here and there for 5-10 minutes. My point is, programmers can become unhealthy fairly easy. Once age sets in, so can the pounds!
To counter this I do three forms of exercising:
- Ride a back for 40 Minutes per day
- Walk 1 mile around the track at work
I've rode a stationary bike for 40 minutes for many months, if not an entire year now. I do that everyday and it also gives me 40 minutes to read so I exercise my mind as well. Walking at work allows me to get away and also gives me the benefit of seeing new scenery while being alone with my thoughts. My wife and I also have bicycles that we often ride around various parks on the weekend.
For anyone interested, I wrote a blog about this as well: http://forum.codecal...-exercises.html
What do you do for exercise?
