Wave How often do YOU exercise?..

Just come back from the gym at lunch and i was wondering - How often do you people exercise & let us know what you do, if anything! I'm a bit of an exercise freak - weight training & cardio mayby six times a week Guess i must be addicted to those endorphines

How come you didn;t vote on your own poll?

At the moment it's every day but there's no option for that. Coupla months it'll be back up to more than once a day, i hope.

Depends how heavy your remote is GC - if we are talking over 20kg and you are moving it in all manner of directions then great - if not shame on you

Re: How often do YOU exercise?..

Football twice a week, badminton once a week, and I'm trying to motivate myself to start biking the other days of the week.
Sounds good, doesn't it?
I'm still a fat knacker though

Re: How often do YOU exercise?..

I get enough exercise at work.... Don't have time to go to the gym.
Probably burn myself out if I did.
Think the gym's for people with desk and chair jobs....Not real grafters

I was about to deny that, seeing as badminton doesn't involve balls at all. But then I thought about what you do use in badminton, and thought I'd best just let it lie...

Re: How often do YOU exercise?..

Today I went for a 5 mile walk on the beach but generally am very lazy. I have a GYM in the garage but rarely use it

So Bomberlow what is your recipe for good exercise - I used to be a fitness freak too but am so busy at work these days I am exhausted when I come home

Well 'Gym' might be an exageration - its just a treadmill, bench press and some weights and an exercise machine you stand on. All lovely but gathering dust.
Must start them up again soon

Re: How often do YOU exercise?..

I work long hours 5-6 days a week, but still manage to get in 5 workouts a week (2x swimming, 3x weights & running) by getting up at 4:30 and doing the workouts before work. Sometimes it's tough, but I know I'd never survive this intense schedule without the workouts (or my Alfa, which is just as therapuetic!).

Walk to uni, ride to uni, walk into town, walk the dog. Don't get much excercise really.

Re: How often do YOU exercise?..

I train when I can. Used to play a lot of Rugby and weighed in at 95kg 4 years ago. Trimmed down, lost a bit of muscle, but still try to keep in good trim shape. Go climbing, fell running, weight training.....when I get the time. Most hotels I go to have a gym, so I always pack gym kit.

More like 200g, but we all train to different levels and you shouldn't be so judgemental

Re: How often do YOU exercise?..

This thread got me thinking so today I went to the doctor to ask him why I always feel very tired ( for last year or so).
He told me that its because I am too fat - I don't really look fat but he said my weight to height ratio was crazy.
Ordered me to use my treadmill every day until I had my weight at 78Kg - It is at 100KG now so that's only 22KG to loose.
Its a breeze - I will keep u updated on my progress. I have set a date for this to be achieved - Sept 1st 2005.
It always gets me motivated when I have a set goal to achieve.

True Kurzon - the height to weight ratio is nonsense if you are muscular. Keep us posted Alfaguy on your progress and try and mix up the cardio work rather than just sticking to a treadmill (if possible) It would be better to vary the machines you use as the body adapts very quickly to workouts and you will burn more calories by mixing it up. Try the rowing machines, cross trainers (funny lookin machines where you use your arms and legs) and stationary bike as well. Also you would benefit from dropping one or two cardio sessions a week and doing some basic weight training, as the more muscle you have the more calories you burn off doing nothing Have a little look at the link to see some of the benefits http://www.fitnesszone.co.za/strength1.htm
