Before I embark on my Doom Eternal/Animal Crossing: New Horizons adventure on this lovely Friday morning, I thought I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how much of a godsend Ring Fit Adventure has turned out to be.

Apparently it's sold out everywhere at the moment, but I had actually picked it up a few months back. I missed about a month at the gym over the holidays which, along with all of the eating & drinking, I had gotten fat and out of shape again in a hurry. The idea was once I started getting back into good shape via going to the gym every weekday morning, I'd add Ring Fit into my repertoire as a sort of supplemental workout I could do on the weekends, or in a pinch if I didn't have time to go to the gym or was out of town.

With COVID-19 shutting down my gym (through the end of March as of now, but will probably extend beyond that) I was a bit demoralized as I was just getting back into a good groove in terms of both cardio and weight lifting.

I turned to Ring Fit in my time of need, and, wow! I had my first RFA workout yesterday morning, and I'm blown away by it. I hadn't realized how many muscles I'm not using on a regular basis. Because I'm in an apartment, I have to do squats in lieu of jogging in place, so I knew my quads would be hurting today. But my hamstrings and upper back are both on fire this morning! I chose the second-highest intensity, and maybe that will prove to be me flying a bit too close to the sun, but I'm going to go with it for now. I did about 20 minutes, which was about the first 2+ missions, and it was as legit a workout as I've had.

Anyone else Ring Fitting it up during the lockdown?

Oh yeah, I dig Ring Fit Adventure! My kids really like it, too. It's a surprisingly good workout, and the "RPG" and "adventure" elements do a great job of gamifying the whole workout. And yeah, while it's not a true replacement for an actual visit at the gym, it'll do in a pinch!

I was worn out after World 1!

Ring Fit Adventure was probably my game of the year. It's a brilliant, innovative, and polished piece of software.

Alright, 72 hours later and my trapezius and hamstrings no longer feel like they're on fire. I think I'm ready for workout #2!

Anyone else try out the rhythm mode? I didn't realize the "17 songs including music from Mario and Zelda!" would be 13 songs from Ring Fit Adventure plus a couple from Mario and Zelda, haha. And I'm skeptical as to whether the ab mode actually works my abs? But it's fun and free!

My wife was playing the Rhythm Mode earlier. Looked fun enough. No DDR, but what is? :P

Also I guess they added the ability to finish a set of reps even if you beat an enemy? That's a good addition.
