Default Russian Subway Costs 92 Cents or 30 Squats To Ride

I was going to suggest we do this in the US, but people would claim they pulled a muscle and end of suing or going on disability.



CNet – Get ready to drop down and give 30 squats if you want a free ride on the Moscow metro. In an effort to promote both physical fitness and the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Moscow city officials and the Russian Olympic Committee are allowing subway riders to pay in 30 squats instead of 30 rubles (about 92 cents) for a single-ride ticket.

Riders have two minutes to perform the deep-knee bends in front of a special machine that can tell if they’re assuming the correct position. The squat-operated ticket machine is located right next to the electronic vending machines at Vystavochnaya station in western Moscow. ”We wanted to show that the Olympic Games is not just an international competition that people watch on TV, but that it is also about getting everyone involved in a sporting lifestyle,” Alexander Zhukov, president of the Russian Olympic Committee, told Russian state news wire RIA-Novosti, according to the Wall Street Journal. The task isn’t as simple as it might seem, according to some people who dared to try it out. ”It was hard at first

I think it is a cool idea and could be useful here in the US with all the fat asses we have running around.

Great idea. Just get that hip crease below the knees or pay up!

If we had a subway to take me to work, I'd do some squats for a ride.

Honestly It'd probably pay too. Squats (done properly) are hard!

People have been doing squats in US subways and bus terminals for years.

I'm for 30 squats each time you enter Williams-Brice and the Gamecock Club knock $1 off the ticket price. Maybe then I'd actually get to sit in my entire seat instead of 3/4 or 1/2.

Honestly you can do 30 deep squats in well under a minute with relative ease - this is a bargain.

Not to get off track, but the usual excuses of knee-pain, etc. are indicators you're doing it wrong, like 99% of the people I see.

That's great as long as it recognizes how tall the person is. Being 6'1", if I had to go down to the line that a 5'4" chick goes down to ... it'd be tough.

I'm 6'4, I'd be worse off than you. Stiffy would say 'F it' and pay the money.
