I just listened to the part of another Rush Limbaugh anti-exercise rant. So either he is lazy, or just plain afraid of getting hurt. Either way his excuses are pretty lame, kind of like a toddler.
Exercise, done properly, utilizing correct technique, pre and post warm up and warm down and appropriate care of the occasional minor injury is not going to cause an noticeable increase in injury.
Being out of shape, old reclining Rush would be more apt to injure himself golfing. If he would condition himself the risk of injury from his only athletic endeavor would decrease.
I will update this more later, but if Rush would like, I would be more than happy to show him how to exercise and turn his less weighty, yet equally flabby body.
