Did the new purchase provide the mental exercise? Physical? Did she buy something that needed assembly? Were the instructions wrong or missing?

The mental exercise is because Mandy does something, right?
Does Mandy do it just one time? at regular intervals? or continuously?
Does she do it at the same time that Adrienne is using her newly purchased item? Is she doing something to Adrienne? or to the item that Adrienne is using?
Does Mandy's actions include another physical object that is relevant?

Does Mandy motivate Adrienne in some way? Is what she does related to Adrienne's exercise? If so, directly or indirectly?

Is the exact type of sports equipment relevant? If not, would the situation change drastically had Adrienne purchased a different type of equipment? A different type of equipment that did the same job? A multiple-use piece of equipment (like the ones you see on TV that can exercise every part of the body when changed around)?

Again, depends on a particular characteristic, but I'm going to go with yes, it would change the situation with this one.

Let me recap:

Mandy, Adrienne's friend, isn't in the same room while Adrienne does pull-ups, although Adrienne may be able to hear or see her, but not necessarily. Mandy doesn't do anything different from before Adrienne had the pull-up bar, but what she does, which doesn't involve communicating with Adrienne, is indirectly related to the pull-ups.

The specific nature of the pull-up bar is vital, although this might also be true of another piece of exercise equipment if it had one particular (as yet unspecified) characteristic. However, Adrienne could get the same mental exercise without doing pull-ups, and can do pull-ups without the mental exercise.

Mandy forces Adrienne to do the mental exercise in a way, but doesn't want her to do it. Is that all correct?


The particular characteristic that might make other exercise equipment have the same effect - is it that her feet leave the ground? That both her hands are occupied? That she's in the doorway? (At least, I assume this is the case - that's where I've always seen domestic pull-up bars) That she's likely to hit her head on the doorframe?

Is it important to work out why your response to Mandy being in the same room was "No, but..."?

Indirectly, yes

The specific nature of the pull-up bar is vital, although this might also be true of another piece of exercise equipment if it had one particular (as yet unspecified) characteristic. Yes However, Adrienne could get the same mental exercise without doing pull-ups, and can do pull-ups without the mental exercise. Yes

Mandy forces Adrienne to do the mental exercise in a way, but doesn't want her to do it. <b.yes;> Is that all correct? Absolutely

Is Mandy in one of the rooms which the doorway joins? Is it relevant that the doorway leads into a particular room? Are both rooms relevant? Does Mandy try to pass through the doorway?

Mandy's doing a perfectly normal thing which she also did before Adrienne got the pull-up bar, but it doesn't involve communication between them, and Adrienne can't necessarily see or hear Mandy - Is that right? Is she watching TV? Listening to the radio?

Does Mandy give Adrienne a gift? Does Adrienne feel obligated to accept? Or otherwise to do something she doesn't want to? Or that Mandy didn't intend to make Adrienne feel that way? Does Mandy perhaps give Adrienne a book-on-tape to listen to while she does pull-ups? Or something else "inspirational?"

Torquemada:
Is Mandy in one of the rooms which the doorway joins? No Is it relevant that the doorway leads into a particular room? It is the doorway of Adrienne's room Are both rooms relevant? FA Does Mandy try to pass through the doorway? No

Mandy's doing a perfectly normal thing which she also did before Adrienne got the pull-up bar, but it doesn't involve communication between them, and Adrienne can't necessarily see or hear Mandy - Is that right? Correct Is she watching TV? Listening to the radio? None of these

Jenburdoo:
Does Mandy give Adrienne a gift? No Does Adrienne feel obligated to accept? Or otherwise to do something she doesn't want to? Or that Mandy didn't intend to make Adrienne feel that way? Does Mandy perhaps give Adrienne a book-on-tape to listen to while she does pull-ups? Or something else "inspirational?" No to all

Is the FA that the pull-up bar is in a doorway? That the doorway's between two rooms? Is one side of the doorway the hall? Landing? Outside?

Is Mandy in the house at the time in question? Does she share a house with Adrienne? Is Adrienne facing into her room when doing the pull-ups? Out of her room? Relevant?

Does Mandy try to shut the door?

My puzzle is dying! I must post a...

RECAP!

Adrienne has bought a doorway pull-up bar, which she fits into the doorway of her room whenever she desires some exercise. However, she is not only working physically, she's training herself mentally too (somewhat against her will.) This is due to something that Mandy, her housemate, does consistently. It involves no direct communication or interaction with Adrienne. What is it?

Ask away, you guys are very close!

Wow, I should have joined this one earlier!

Does Mandy walk around? Walk up and down the stairs?

Does Adrienne have to alter her pull-ups in anyway because of the mental exercise? Perhaps time them, or stay up longer?

Is it crucial that she stand in the doorway for the mental exercise to work?

Is calculation invovled in the mental exercise? Counting? Logical thinking? Memory? Spatial awareness/thinking? Is it a game? Is Mandy also doing this mental exercise? Are they competing?

Is Mandy always listening to music? Or playing it? And Adrienne feel compelled to do her pull-ups to the rhythm of the music?

Is the mental excercise from something she sees? Tastes? Smells? Feels? Rhythm relevant? Heart rate? Does she do the mental excercise only when doing pull-ups? Could she do it at other times? Instead? Is it directly tied to the excercise? Or does it simply happen at the same time? Does it invovle looking at something? Looking for something? Are words invovled? Rhyming? Music? Does Adrienne get any benefit from the mental excercise? If she didn't do the mental excercise, would she be unable to do her pull-ups? Or would she enjoy them less? Benefit from them less? Incur anger of her roommate? Or other negative feelings?

Feels: physically feels? Or is it an emotion? Does she perhaps use the excercise an an outlet for negative emotions caused by her roommate?

Outside= outdoors? The indoor hallway? Are they in an apartment building?

Does Mandy keep it very warm? Cold? Does the mental exercise involve trying to ignore the uncomfortable temperature?

***************************SPOILER****************************

Adrienne and Mandy are housemates. Unfortunately for Adrienne, Mandy is a skinflint, and no matter how cold it gets, she always turns the heating off whenever Adrienne turns it on. Adrienne rebels against this by getting a personal electric heater to keep her room warm, however, when she uses her doorway pull up bar, she has no choice but to stand in the hallway, which is freezing! Hence, not only does she get a good physical workout, she also has to steel herself against the cold, strengthening both mind and body!

Thanks for playing! =)
