I love doing exercises.I practice yoga,meditaion and many more
exercises. I like walking,rope skipping,cycling,dancing.I used to change my routine so that i might not get bored.
what do u do?just want to share so that may be i'll something new..
Getting out of bed is my exercise usually....
I've just started to do weights, because the reasoning I have is that all this whale fat and blubber I have acquired could be turned into solid muscle with a little controlled effort.
I now run to the takeaway at the top of my street which is only 3 minutes away.
I try and spin a donut like a hula hoop too, although it usually falls to bits!
My day start with 2km walk after that yoga in my garden for 1/2 hour.then in the evening i goes to gym for about 1-2 hours .i think this makes my cheeks more reddish....:-D
I weightlift been mostly chest/bieps exercises. My legs are garbage compared to my upper body. (have not worked legs because of lack of equipment, and motivation for lower body)
alternating bicep curls
Incline Bench press
shoulder press (need to work on)
Wish I could workout legs, but don't have room to add a leg extension to my Olympic Bench press..
I don't have as much of a routine as I did a year ago, which was lifting and running 5 days a week. I have really gotten into creative ways to workout lately. I just started TRX training a week ago and some of the exercises I've tried with it are extremely intense.
Overall I love fitness enough to where I used to skip classes to go to the gym and in the end don't regret doing so one bit.
Walking, stretches, jogging, cycling (when I get my bike fixed).
Walking is my most regular exercise and then jogging as I do a mini marathon which I now can do with my eyes shut haha.
Stretches are what I try to do daily.
Mine is watching people actually doing the exercise on DVD. I burn calories simply by looking at them...
I'd take it a step beyond you: Mine is thinking about the fitness DVD that's been sitting in my DVD player for a month now.
In my own defense, I have a good excuse. Getting back from a nasty, complicated, leg injury and kind of nervous about doing anything to cause a set-back. I had been walking five out of seven days a week, and then I added the DVD workouts as a way of having a more complete workout. I haven't felt good getting pretty much no exercise at all, so last month I finally felt brave enough to take The Big Step of putting the fitness DVD in my machine. Oh - I did look at it for about fifteen minutes one night. One of these days I fully expect to get out of my chair and do something other than THINK about the DVDs.
Yes, I keep saying I need to start exercising? Have to team up with a walking partner, to be accountable..to get into a routine. This question stings a little:)
Monday - weights with trainer
Tuesday - walk 7 kms
Wednesday - boxing with trainer
Thurs - cycle at gym or nothing
Fri - kicking/punching session on boxing bag or nothing
Saturday - kicking/punching session on boxing bag
Sunday morning - mountain hike
I like being fit and active
Get up, stretch then back to the comp...I'm working my fingers out.
Herschel Walker is my fitness idol, so I try and do a ton of body weight exercises like: push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, chair dips, one-legged squats, etc. Also, I jump rope for cardio.
I call this the lazy way to get in very good shape, because you never have to leave your house.
I use the elliptical trainer, do chin-ups, run on the treadmill or outside, use the nordic track, and sometimes lift weights.
I try to do around an hour a day.
Here's an idea of my week:
Mon- swim laps
Tues- weight train 1/2hr and cardio 1/2hr (elliptical or stairstep)
Weds- swim laps
Thurs- same as tues OR meet my dad for raquetball
Fri- 1hr cardio
Sat- Zumba or bootcamp class at the gym
Sun- 2hrs of pickup basketball
When the summer comes I'll incorporate cycling. I use to run primarily but at the ripe ol' age of 27 I'm already hearing crackling when I bend my knees!
My exercise routine is very simple, and my fitness expert is "African Mango" here it is ++ http://micunter.amplify.com/2011/02/22/african-mango/
My exercise routine is in the gym 3 times a week doing progressive weight training and walking.
See my latest hub 'to be a healthy fit strong senior citizen'.
variety of push ups, leg raises, crunches, twists, turns, squats. all 25 each. every other day. then stretch and play basketball every day.
My exercise routine is weight training and crunches afterwards. I do cardios on alternate days.
Wake up, lift my **** to pee.
Drink Mountain Dew and eat some donuts.
Walk to car to drive to work.
I was at the pool this morning at 7:30 and swam several lengths.
Okay, I admit, this new routine isn't by choice, and is only a once every two week thing.
Daily - lunges and sit-ups - and swimming in the pool as often as I can. I just purchased swim fins - add in a fitness tool and I am a speed demon in the pool! Watch me rip through the water! Great cardio - great for the legs. My upper body is already tone from the weights - need the cardio - love the cardio workout in the swimming pool!
I do an hour and a half at the gym, 5 days a week, usually 35 minutes on the bike, 20 on the treadmill and 20 on the cross trainer... Then my gyms got this wierd 'Power Plate' thing, and I do ten minutes on that as both a toning/stretching session. I've been told weights are good for you... but I pulled my back last time I tried (on 20kg) so I haven't done it since
30 mins a day - alternating between say a 2 mile run on one day, and basic military workout exercises on another day (press-ups, sit-ups) all bodyweight exercises so no need for equipment.
That way there is REALLY NO excuse - it only takes 20- 30 mins, it can be done anywhere, and requires no equipment.
You may like to try kettlebells. I have evaluated most types of exercise equipment (e.g. dumbbells, Twiststick, BOSU, gym equipment) and these offer the most intense and effective workout routines I have ever experienced. Be warned though that to be REALLY effective you need to use heavy ones and swinging these about can be alarming if you are feeling a little tired! However I only need to train twice a week for 1.5 hours and I can keep in very good shape without too much effort.
As of right now I am prepping for some endurance events for the summer, so my lifting routine is primarily low volume utilizing only the main lifts. I follow Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 program. It is absolutely a genius workout for maximizing strength gains for intermediate and expert level lifters and well worth the read. I run 4 times a week. the intensity of the runs decrease throughout the week but increase in length. The last running day of the week is my longest and I usually go for distance around 10 miles or more.
I love running. Some people think it is so tedious, but I think there is no better serenity. I like to lift weights as well.
I walk briskly for 60 to 90 minutes every morning. Then at night I do another 60 minutes of yoga. During the day I love to garden, bike, and paddle and other stuff depending upon the weather. Sometimes it's just walk around a museum for an hour in the afternoon.
I jut walk and take care of my baby outside the park - it is just near here. She runs around so, I have to also run with her, not everyday though, every other day, cos I also work. I guess I don't need lots of exercise, but at least we need to move, move and move some more. That is my exercise. I also bike every Sunday pm.
I run on the treadmill and sometimes do resistance training. These activities help me get back in shape.
I'm on my feet alot, but unfortunately that is when I am in the kitchen cooking and tasting and eating - I also walk at grocery store - usually typing these posts is about as strenuous as it gets most of the time. Hmmmm. . . I guess I need to work on my exercise routine. Chewing my food doesn't burn nearly enough calories!
I started to do Pilates three times a week (one hour one-to-one class) about a month ago.
I do walking, jogging, swim once a week, gym three times a week. Play tennis, maybe dancing some weekends. I don't like hanging around at home much, I like to get out - get some fresh air. Music makes me wanna dance. Get some good tunes, might help! LOL!
It varies, but always a daily 20 minute walk with the dog, sometimes 2 walks.
-half hour treadmill (it's on the patio, so it's a nice view)
-stability ball workout 3x a wk. which includes light weights.
-daily swimming during pool season which is almost here, the water is still too chilly but the air temperature is warm enough.
-sometimes yoga, if I'm not in the mood for the ball, I go through phases.
it seems that I've seen Zumba workouts listed on the TV (Directv) schedule here in the Bay Area - does anyone know where and when on TV I can find Zumba workouts? I can't find a list online for this area.
