Drumming up some exercise

I’ve been asked to help out on percussion for some friends who are playing a gig in February. Thinking back, it has been over a year since I last played the drums. Anyway, the kit has been retrieved from the garage and is now set up in the lounge, and I need to build up with some practice every day.

Then it occurred to me – this is exercise, no? Doing a web search came up with various calorific values for drumming, but for now I am going to take a very conservative view and record it as 4 kcals per minute.

Every little helps.
