Let’s Get Physical

Do you think you have a rigourous daily workout routine?  Can you bench press 100lbs?  Can you do 100 sit-ups at once?  How about jump rope for 10 minutes?

All of those things used to make me think, “Yeah, that’s a great workout.”  But all that was before I visited the Cathedral of St. Vitus in Prague, Czech Republic today.  The bell rings every hour, on the hour.  There are two people that manually toll the bells and the bells make the most melodious sound you will ever hear.  What makes this even more impressive is the largest of these two bells weighs 2 1/2 tons!  Up and down, up and down, up and down for at least 10minutes…2 1/2  tons!  Now that’s a workout!
