    I'm a fat guy, so over the years I've figured out ways to change certain aspects of my life to burn more calories and build more muscle without distracting from my schedule.

    The most effective thing I've figured out how to do is to walk funny. I lower my center of gravity about 6 inches, which means when I walk I do not use a passive dynamic, my muscles are always engaged, supporting my weight, and pushing me forward. I never get much benefit from my momentum carrying me over a straight leg. At the apex of my stride I straighten my leg out as fast as possible and push off as hard as I can with my ankle.

    Walking like this is very fast, very tiring, and I'm getting to the point where I can do it for decently long distances without taking a break. I've noticed significant strength gains in my legs and my agility has increased.


    So what about you guys, have you figured out any body tricks like WALKING FUNNY that serve a useful function in your lives?

    And I bet you guys were going to think this was another absurd, useless thread like PUNCHING ICE and Clench your Jaw!

    I intentionally park my car far away from stores at the mall to encourage walking.

    One of Gene Hoglan's legs is shorter than the other. He's one of the baddest ass drummers that's ever existed.
    Def Leopard's drummer has one arm, (he sucked with 2 ), but it all balances out in a way.

    So, Yuyu, you are now Groucho-walking around town with jaw clenched, punching every ice-bag you meet.

    It's the best gimmick since Chesterton, but be careful not to blow out your knees. :)

    Amazing what women can do with their bodies when men aren't looking.

    Sometimes I also walk like the Red Ranger in Duckett's signature.

    My left leg is very flexible, and I can get it so that my toe touches my nose.

    Of course, that same leg is the reason why I have to wear shoe inserts to keep my feet from spreading out.

    Well, no. Walking around like you have to take a shit 24/7 is about the least cool thing you can do. I certainly wouldn't open a thread about it.

    I also wouldn't start threads about inane shit like punching bags of ice, but to each his own. Everybody thinks their spam tastes the best.

    It is supposed to be about tricks of the body people find useful. Like putting a pen behind (or in) your ear or keeping food between your toes.
