The nature of work is changing. It’s a good thing, but it does have downsides. And we need more than exercise to offset those downsides. You’ll learn: how work has changed our bodies over the last 120 years, the number of fewer calories we burn daily, why exercise isn’t enough to offset our new work environments, a holistic solution to remain healthy working today.
Very interesting read! I’m actually from the Pittsburg area and started out of college in steel. Talk about a crazy industry. Some of the stories the more tenured workers had were crazy. And that was after all sorts of safety rules and regulations were put in place! It’s been a couple years, but the book “Meet you in hell” by Lee Standiford is a really interesting read on the steel industry, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Frick and the labor movement for anyone interested.
I’m doing the TMF 9/11 Memorial in the rucking division. Glad they and GoRuck partnered so I can participate.
We did a heavy pack MTN tough work out. Laborious indeed.
This was super interesting thanks for sharing.
Happy Labor Day, all! I always enjoy hearing about the history of the labor movement and specifically enjoyed how you tied it to inactivity. Very interesting and a much more subtle calorie burn shift than I expected. I’m headed outside now. 👍
