Tone Up With Virtual Exercise?

In a segment on Frontline, kids who used virtual reality equipment to swim with whales actually believed they had been swimming with whales when questioned weeks later. The power of the mind to incorporate belief systems and then act on them is pretty amazing.

I’ve read that by imagining yourself doing strength building exercises, you can increase your muscle size over time the same as if you’d actually been  lifting weights.

 Does virtual exercise really work? What do you think?
