In case you are looking for another reason to maybe jump on the VR bandwagon well this may be another bullet to help your argument. VR could help you burn some cals. Now before you scratch your head and try and figure out how eating cheetos and staring into some virtual world is going to help you burn calories let me explain. You have your favorite YT, Netflix, or Hulu show you are trying to catch up on and you normally would do that sitting on the couch. Well how about grab your phone, headset, and favorite bt headphones and go to the gym. VR is an awesome tool to knock out a session on the stationary bike, row machine, or elliptical and help you take your mind off of the burn by immersing you in another world. It's like cardio theater for every gym. Jump on a stationary piece of equipment and enjoy a show and a sweat. Before you know it you are done with your show, done with a little cardio, and making strides to a healthier you. Here are the exercises you should obviously avoid using your VR headset: Treadmill: Do I really even need to explain all the things that can go wrong, unless you plan on just kung fu gripping the handles all it takes is for one wrong slip before you end up on social media everywhere with people laughing at your misfortune. Stair machine: Similar to the treadmill, more can go wrong than can go right. Anything involving weights: Don't be that guy taking up a good bench, rack, or machine staring off into VR land. It is acceptable to use it on the cardio machines because people expect to to be on that thing for 30 mins to a hour. Machines, racks, and benches people are already trying to fight for equipment to get a good pump, it would be inconsiderate to hold them up while you are in VR land. Anything not stationary, riding a bike, running, rollerskating, skiing, swimming, basically you get the point. You will not be able to be aware of your surroundings so make sure you are some place safe in the gym where you will not cause harm to yourself or others. So there you have it, it is another tool that can be used to help you get through those boring cardio sessions and get you to burning off some of those holiday calories.
