If you can do 30 squats you can ride the subway for free in Russia.  30 squats, what’s the point of even taking the sub way? If I’m going to do some aerobic exercising why not it do in the direction of which I am traveling.

“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.” - cnet

I suppose this is a good idea now that I think about it. Russia is cold and who wants to talk outside? Also this is a great way to ensure all the Russian people are super tight and sexy in time for the world to see them at the 2014 Olympics. I mean we've seen the pictures of how Vladimir Putin is holding up his end of the bargain. It’s about time the Russian people did their part too.
