Tired of running, try threshing

Do you pedal on a stationary bike at home or gym to keep in shape? Cause apparently farmers don’t struggle with fitness issues.

After the labor of planting and harvesting in the field, it’s not the time for farmers to take a rest and enjoy the harvest. It is followed by another backbreaking step requiring immense physical labor: threshing.

Without the thresher tool, threshing itself would be done by beating, stomping, or crushing the grain by hand or foot. It is a long process involving slow and hard physical labor.

To reduce the amount of physical labor the farmer in the video built a pedal-powered thresher. Now, you can pedal this “stationary bike” to get fit and produce grain!
