Talking Are you also hurting from playing a Kinect game?

I have played a lot of Fruit Ninja Kinect these last couple of days and am really sore in my shoulders, arms and top sides of my back

I have also been extremely sore and exhausted after raising my knee to my ear a gazillion times in Your Shape: Fitness Evolved

Yes, I know I should be in better shape, but I was just wondering if there are other players feeling the pain or actually getting some injuries on the Kinect frontlines?

Yeah I will admit Kinect games make me sore sometimes. Once I stayed up all night playing Gears of War 2 then my step-daughter had her friends over the next day. We all ended up playing Kinect sports and there is some ridiculous sprinting game where you have to sprint until you make it into the green zones then stop, then sprint again etc. I was sore after that day...

Those were clearly spam posts, because it's such a chore to get a 5 post count.

Anyhow, I'm quite sore right now. I haven't touched my Kinect in maybe 2 months, so I decided to play Wipeout and Kinect Sports, two titles I've had for awhile but never touched. Despite all the running for both games my legs feel alright after a night's rest and some stretching, but my shoulders are killing me from the throwing events in Kinect Sports. Going to take the day off tomorrow

EDIT: Holy crap I lied. Just went up some stairs and my legs are killing me now. My back is also extremely sore.

tl;dr - Call it the Xbox One or X1.

Yeah I've also played too much Fruit Ninja Kinect where I felt like my arms were about to fall off... it's mostly because of that damn Pomegranate.

Kinect sports hurts. Especially boxing. I think I may be punching harder than needed.

I played Fruit Ninja Kinect on release day for 4 hours straight. I honestly couldn't move my arms for 4 days, and my back and sides of my neck killed. As soon as the lactic acid left though, I was straight back on it

Fruit Ninja is pretty hard on the arms. The exercise games plus Dance Central also make me sore the next day. It's is a pretty good excuse for the wife though, "Honey, I am not playing videogames, I am exercising!"

I <33333 playing Dance Central but yes I do get sore. It's because they've made gaming something that you have to get off your ass for instead of relaxing lolz

Wow, just wow. I thought you were bad for complaining about not understanding using terribly broken English. Then I read the last line and realized you were a spammer plugging real estate sales apparently. I further realized how much of an idiot you must be considering the market for real estate buyers is extremely small on a game forum, and the market for said buyers limited to ONE city, on a video game forum, would be in the single digits on a GOOD day. You probably won't read this but if you do, please understand that I sincerely hope Darwinism removes you from the collective gene pool, and soon.

On topic: I don't own a kinect but if you actually get regular exercise the kinect shouldn't cause undue soreness. Also even if it does make your muscles sore your BACK should not be sore unless you're doing something wrong such as improper lifting-motion mechanics. If you have to squat use your legs, don't lean over and cause repeated stress on your spine.

I have to lift and turn patients 13 hours a day at the hospital and my back is never sore. Shoulders yes, but back no. Proper mechanics in how you move go a long way to alleviating that problem.

The only time I hurt when I play Kinect is when I haven't worked out in a while, or haven't exercised via sports. IMO the reason your arms and shoulder hurt is because your muscles aren't used to doing those thing, and since your doing them repeatedly it puts some stress on them. If you keep playing your muscles should get used to the movements, just don't over exert yourself. Take breaks when tired.
