      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!

      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)

      Lately :
      Bench press
      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..  sad

      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.

      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.   lol

      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.  lol  Oh - I did look at it for about fifteen minutes one night.  lol   One of these days I fully expect to get out of my chair and do something other than THINK  about the DVDs.   lol

    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:)

    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. big_smile

    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!

    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 tongue

    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.

    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.
