Indeed it will - your booty.
I'm sure i'll get corrected but to get the back-of-the-envelope
calculations going: a hunky guy can produce about 3/4 hp sustained;
that's a little over 500W at 100% generator efficiency.
Without doing any estimates or experiments I will make a guess that
an ordinary person could probably produce a tenth of that in actual
electricity watts, sustained.
