    A Wii Workout

    But as players spend more time with the Wii, some are noticing that hours waving the game's controller around can add up to fairly intense exertion -- resulting in aches and pains common in more familiar forms of exercise. They're reporting aching backs, sore shoulders -- even something some have dubbed "Wii elbow."

    Are any of you who have the game experiencing any aches and pains from playing to much?

    I can hear the cha-chings going off in the chiropractors minds as we speak. Nintendo will dominate the market by forcing kids off their couches alone. The "healthy" choice. Nintendo.

    I wonder if it could give someone a heart attack?

    That would suck.

    One of the Monkey Ball minigames makes you wave your arms like you're running--I found myself actually starting to run on the spot, and fast enough to start breathing heavier than usual...I'm sure someone with a weak heart could run into trouble if they really got into the game...

    Someone with a weak heart should be well aware about their condition though

    One of my friends always sat out when we ran the mile in gym class. I was usually 2nd or 3rd but I can only get like 6 min 30 sec.
