    Calorie burn while sorting cards question

    One for the fitness guys.

    Would sorting cards ( into numerical order for instance) for an hour be the same as walking slow for an hour?

    Sent from my HTCONE using Freedom Card Board mobile app

    I would be surprised if it was close - but I did discover that my fitbit registers steps when I sort cards. The constant back and forth motion seems to make it think I'm walking. It is an easy 500 steps to sort box of tops base.
    Finish your sets! Check my sportlots inventory. 350,000 cards listed!
    Shipping capped at $3.00 for any order in the United States
    I'm letting my Football and Hockey collections go - I've lowered prices almost all of my football and hockey cards on sportlots. Mostly inserts, SPs and premium cards - take a look!

    You'll need to measure your heart rate while doing it
    Edgar Gonzalez Collection: - the 1/1's: 108/111 (97.3%) Have 12 1/1s out of 29
    Jorge Cantu Collection: 487 / 688 (70.78%), 58 1/1s (14 non plates)
    - the 1/1's: 429/443 (96.84%)
    Total Mexican Collection: 4,326
    Mexican autographs: 129/130 and on baseballs 118/130

    You could buy one of those big ball things and sit on it while sorting/scanning.

    I've contemplated doing this.

    Good idea. Might be a decent core workout if u can get the right angle
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    If sorting cards is a workout then Barry [MENTION=2026]tramers[/MENTION] is FCB's Richard Simmons.

    misc 3200 count box baseball or football to TEAMS in several hours . Then in alpha order about one hour per team [800] . 500,000 filed that way 150,000 to finish . At this time no light in shed or heat so i'm slower . I will take a break or two .
    Hope to have pictures soon

    maybe if you sort your cards on a 6-8 foot long table and have to move you ass left or right all the time to access your stacks of 100's, 10s, 1's, etc.

    Sitting in a chair with a tv dinner tray or card table pulled up to your chair... I highly doubt you will get much calorie burn - likely about the same as resting calorie burn.
