Our Exercise Habits and Fitness Goals (Ep. 216)

Someday we’ll all have cool cyborg bodies, but that day is not today.

For now, we’ve got to deal with all the nonsense requirements that come with our ridiculous mortal bodies: nutrition, hydration, exercise, posture, and whatever else I’m not thinking of.

Exercise routines are the focus this week, and while they can easily be overwhelming to a newcomer, we’re doing our best today to provide a balanced set of examples. My fitness routine is absurdly simple, and Thomas’ is a little more involved.

As the wise sage, Reggie Fils-Aimé, once said: “My body is ready.”
