People do a very funny thing.
And since you happen to be a people, you probably do it too!
Care to know what it is so you can chuckle at the fuckery (you and) everybody does?
What they (and you) do is exercise and then expend less energy throughout the rest of the day.
For example, they’ll decide to take the elevator instead of the stairs because they’re so plumb tuckered out from their physically and mentally draining sets of quarter squats.
I know you’re totally wiped out from only thrusting yourself up and down an inch, but taking the elevator, parking as close as possible to an entrance, going home and just plopping yourself on the couch, whatever, just means the burning of less total calories.
So take the motherfucking stairs!
