    ...oops!...

    (WaPo) By Cara Rosenbloom

    People who faithfully adhere to 10,000 daily steps or who scold themselves for not reaching that goal may be surprised to learn that this widely accepted target did not originate as the result of years of scientific research. Instead, it grew out of the marketing campaign for a pedometer invented in 1965 by a Japanese professor of health science who believed walking 10,000 steps daily would help the Japanese people avoid obesity. The name of the pedometer was Manpo-kei (10,000-step meter), and the ads for the device said, “Let’s walk 10,000 steps a day!” More than 50 years later, the idea that adults need to walk 10,000 steps a day retains its power.

    Over the years, many researchers have studied the 10,000-step number to see whether it holds weight. The answer is yes and no. Although the 10,000 step daily goal is not universally appropriate for all ages and levels of physical function, it is considered “a reasonable target for healthy adults,” according to a 2011 research review published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity.


    Here’s why: Most Americans take 4,000 to 6,000 steps through general daily action — working, shopping, walking through parking lots, etc. If you add the 30 minutes of recommended exercise, that’s another 3,000 to 4,000 steps, and gets you close to the 10,000-step goal. It’s basic math. Tracking steps and having manageable goals can prompt people to do more physical activity.

    Of course, someone who is less active may set a lower step goal. An increase to 8,000 steps will help an adult who was previously taking only 6,000 (fewer than 5,000 steps a day is considered sedentary). On the other hand, someone who already walks 10,000 steps may aim for 15,000. The idea is to be more aware of your activity level and increase it as needed.

    Big mac's are only big in photos. The burgers they serve are pretty sad looking compared to the images

    That's not too bad, I suspect (though could be wrong) that Chitty's talking 1RM.

    Not that any of it really matters anyways numbers are mostly irrelevant.
