>If I Crochet Really Fast Can I Count It As Excercise?
I love this shelf sitter! I think I need one. You can purchase them at Red Heart. They have knit ones, & yarn ones, too. (this is my own personal opinion, they are not paying me to do this product review)
As I laughed over this, I wondered if there was any truth to this saying, and decided to try to find out. After doing many internet searches, the closest I could find was calories burned doing “Arts & Crafts”. Here are the results:
Sitting, with light effort – 108 calories per hour
Sitting, with moderate effort – 142 calories per hour
Standing, with light effort – 128 calories per hour
Standing, with moderate effort – 214 calories per hour
Standing, with vigorous effort – 250 calories per hour
So, there you have it! If you can craft standing up you can burn even more……
Now, I need to figure out how to crochet vigorously…..while standing!
