Good Idea, Bad Idea: Let’s Do a Gym Version!

The cartoon series “Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs” was awesome. The core focus was on the adventures (or misadventures) of the Warner Brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and the Warner Sister, Dot, who were so crazy that the studio execs locked them away in the water town at the Studio. Lots of witty, slapstick humor with pop culture parodies. I’m still laughing out loud thinking of some of the things they did.

There was a regular feature called Good Idea / Bad Idea that sprung to my mind yesterday while at the gym.

  • Good Idea — Circuit Training where you are always moving and working different body parts.
  • Bad Idea — Weight sitting
  • Good Idea — Putting weights back where they belong.
  • Bad Idea — Leaving weights on equipment so other members have to clear them first before working out.
  • Good Idea — Locking your mobile phone in the car.
  • Bad Idea — Sitting on the floor of the bag room (where boxers go to train) having a personal conversation.
  • You get the idea. And the last Bad Idea is what happened to me recently during my boxing session in the bag room. Good thing I was focused punching the bag. I danced around the one called “wrecking ball” and the guy didn’t even flinch. He was in his own self-absorbed world.
    I think the biggest problem is lack of situational awareness, which is kind of weird for a gym that’s all about fighting (as real as it gets, right?).

    I may actually do a series for them if they are interested.

    Meanwhile, for your amusement, here is a 4+ minute compilation of “Good Idea / Bad Idea” from the Animaniacs.
