Athruis;4583314 said:Yeah, One of the reporters kinda took the idea that i drummed myself thin and ran with it but most of the work has came from regular gym visits and a good diet.
Funk-n-stein;4583165 said:THIS. Playing drums on RockBand is infinitely better than sitting on a couch playing something like MW3, but the problem with these kind of articles is that people skip the part where he drastically changed his diet and started hitting the gym regularly and think, "OMG, I can lose weight just by playing video games!!"That said. Serious congrats to this guy, I'm sure it wasn't easy to do, but he will be thankful for the investment in himself down the road.

Athruis;4583347 said:Well you look at your average rowing machine, You burn 1 calorie per every 8-10m which on average is about 2-3 strides depending on how tall you are.Now say you play a decent lengh song lasting about 4 minutes with about 1800 possible beats/notes to hit, throw that all together with how heavy the song is with bass kicks and your looking at alot of calories burned. I know my math is nowhere near solid by any means but you can see what i mean.
