Think I should count this exercise?
I was curious about something tonight. My brother went and bought Band Hero kit on Friday and we spent A LOT of time over the weekend playing. I never would have guessed drums was so exhausting. We played several hours the first night until the wee hours of the morning opening all the songs. But being in a curious mood I started looking up how many calories it burns because I was literally sweating and tired mentally and physically at the end.
One site said 508 calories WHOA(surely not the exact) in 60 minutes. Now that is exercise I can certainly work with. Of course not as the only exercise but any calorie burn will help boost metabolism right?
I want a Wii. BAD!! Its getting to be too hot to think about going outside to exercise so I'll probably be lazy and stick to indoor stuff.

Edit: I just noticed you asked if you should "count" this as exercise. You can, but I wouldn't. If you do some kind of exercise routine on top of this, just imagine how healthy you're getting!

Oh yeah, burning calories is burning calories, no matter how you do it.
We burn calories every second, even just sitting, but the more physical activity you do the more you burn.
I noticed that in Boston, where most people walked to work, to the store, to the bank, at least 1 hour or more of walking just from daily living, the overweight problem was much rarer. The suburban tourists who I would always see when I lived next to the original Cheers bar were often so rolly polly looking.

I'd say you could burn 300 calories an hour on an average song on medium difficulty. I guess the great thing about this is it gets to become a much better exercise the better at it you become! Its also a great workout for your forearms.
