    Love it. I belong to a gym and am pretty faithful about going regularly. If I miss a few days, but split, stacked, etc. During those days, then I don't feel guilty. If the other regular cronies in there give me a hard time, I just tell them, don't worry, I haven't ben slacking. :)

    At my gym, and at a lot of gyms now actually, they have a massive tire from a front end loader. It is used for a multitude of training exercises, but one of them is to whack it with a sledge hammer to simulate splitting wood.

    Due various issue can't swing a mall or axe that much so swinging chainsaws and heaving rounds and splits will have to do. I get bye ok though.

    Splitting and stacking is my gym too. I supplement with running a few times a week and some exercise drills my friend, who is a football coach, tortures me with!

    Having my annual physical last week the doc was ticking off things on the questionnaire. Asked me if I exercise. I replied that I walk briskly 900 feet to the mailbox every day and uphill back all the way. And that I cut/spit/stack and move 15,000 pounds of wood three times during the year. She looked blankly at me and I said "Put down that I play golf." and she said "OK" and wrote that down. ;lol

    Somebody needs to open a wood gym and have people pay them to split and stack their wood.

    They can dress up like LLBean and flirt with each other
