This ‘incidental’ exercise, that is, exercise participation in everyday activities, is what we need to encourage. ADL’s, activities in daily living, are much more akin to our evolutionary past.

Pursuing food and being pursued by big sabre toothed cats is what we have evolved to do. Evolution is a slow process, it’ll be a long time before we evolve to sit at a desk and prod a keyboard or watch TV without paying, in health losses, for the physical down-time somewhere along the line.

More incidental exercise is the key.

Lets build an army style assault course on the car park of all supermarkets, the entrance to which is, of course, at the end of the assault. Maybe an analogy too far but you know what I mean?
