Five Super Erie Stories from Reddit – NoSleep

nosleep1. The Rocking Horse
This story begins with a 12-year-old boy who’s bedroom was on the top floor. Not only was his bedroom on the top floor, but it was the entire top floor itself. One night, the boy wasn’t able to fall asleep. That night, he was lying in bed when he heard a noise from across the room. The noise turned out to be a rocking-horse that was slowly rocking across the room, stopping right under the ceiling light. In fear, he hid under the blankets. His parents told him that he was playing with his toys very late at night, except he never left his room.

2. Rig 12
According to local paramedics, there’s a haunted, or maybe even possessed, ambulance called Rig 12. During one night, a couple were spending time together in this very ambulance, one in the passenger seat and the other in the driver seat. Eventually, the couple dozed off to sleep. One of them woke up to a muffled sound saying, “Oh my God, am I dying?” Heavy breathing followed with a dead silence. Both of them woke up in astonishment to what they heard. After this, lights and other features of the ambulance started to malfunction. There is no doubt that Rig 12 is haunted.

3. Crib Shadow
A woman was babysitting her niece while staying at her brother’s house. She had a baby-camera setup so that she could monitor her niece from another room. As the woman was starting to doze off, she heard whispering. She then realized that it was coming from the monitor screen. When she looked at the screen, she saw a shadow figure right next to her niece’s crib. In horror, she ran to the room and saw nothing, not even on the monitor screen. Later on, she told her brother about what happened. He said that it has been happening for a while. Once the baby was able to walk and talk, she mentioned something about an imaginary friend.

4. Frantic Calls
While spending time with his grandson, he told him of a story that he would never forget. The story goes like this. One night, the grandpa was sitting all alone in his front porch, enjoying the quiet night. Suddenly, he heard his wife calling him from inside the house. The problem was that his wife died three years prior to this incident. In fact, the sound was so noticeable that he went inside the house. As soon as he got inside the house, he heard a loud noise behind him. It turned out to be a heavy iron gutter that had crushed the chair, which he was sitting on moments before.

5. The Shadow Person
One day, a couple was having an argument in an old house, which was used at one time to smuggle illegal immigrants. The wife left to have a cup of coffee and settle down. Out of the corner of the husband’s eye, he could see a black figure. He turned his head and saw a black figure that looked like a horribly drawn three-foot human. Right then, it darted straight at him. Just before the monster could reach him, the bedroom door slammed shut by itself.

Workout Tips From Yours Truly

womenworkoutWhen beginning an exercise routine it’s often difficult to understand what type of workout is best, and if low or high repetition exercise offers the most benefit. When researching the different options keep in a mind a few key facts about the body, and consider what exercises lead to the most individual benefit. Also, keep in mind what exercises are meant to achieve.

High repetition workouts target the muscles. Muscles have fibers that are employed to overcome resistance used in high repetition workouts. They use all the fiber in the muscle, and this is why many exercise enthusiasts refer to the process of repetition as feeling a slow burn in the muscle. High repetition exercise actually results in improved capillary functions. Capillaries are important since they carry blood to the muscles. Increased circulation in capillaries also means nutrients to muscles increases. Increased blood and nutrient delivery, along with increased repetitions in workouts results in reduction of body fat, and a more toned body.

Not only do high repetition workouts provide the body with benefits to the circulatory and muscle system, but they also present a routine that offers less risk of injury, more muscle mass, endurance and fat burning potential. Reduced risk of injury occurs because routines with a high level of repetition are generally performed by using light weights. The typical weight used should allow muscles to tire within 90 seconds or less.

Beginners should keep in mind that a high repetitions should be gained in time. Start with 8-12 repetitions a day. Build endurance by doing a few more each week or day. Work up to 15-20 repetitions. Building repetitions is not only important for endurance, but also allows for increasing metabolism. This is because muscle utilizes more calories than fat. This leads to a leaner, more toned body.

High repetition routines generally employ use of light weights to accomplish resistance in muscle tissue. Weights are used with different muscle groups, including arms, legs, stomach, and thighs. Use of hand, arm and leg weights with high repetitions can be included in normal workout routines, and will increase muscle toning. Hand or body weights are used in arm lifts, leg lifts, squats, step and aerobic exercises in endurance training. They are also used in light weight lifting for strength training. Benefits of high repetition exercises will result in increased health, body toning, strength and endurance, as well as more fat burning potential.
