My fav is aqua-size (arobics in the water).

It's great, especially in the deep end. You get a work out both from a cardio and resistance perspective, and when you get out of the pool, you feel refreshed.

I workout Monday through Friday. So Mon. Wed. and Friday's consist of 3 sets of dumbell curls, 3 sets of preacher curls, 3 sets of bench press, 3 sets of incline and decline press. Then 200 crunches. Tues. and Thurs. 3sets each on machines that work the back, shoulders and tricep muscles. I am unable to do much cardio due surgery on my right and left knee. I can still work my calve muscles though.

yoga stretches
40 sit-ups
40 crunches
40 "girl" pushups
endurance pilates
kickboxing
taebo
fast paced hip-hop dance
Yoga stretches

Well, I have no real routline. From time to time I start to jog, three times a week for 1hour. I'd like to do sports more regularly, but I find it just hard sometimes.
Unfortunately I have no money for the gym :(
It would maybe help me.
I'm just so lazy^^
And I'm definitly not the person for team sports!!^^

I feel totally humbled by all you balls of energy out there. My joints (knees in particular) are sometimes pretty bad with arthritis, not helped by carrying such a hefty load.

I started aquagym about a year back and when there are no classes (linked to school term times), I really miss it. Two sessions a week, an hour each time. It does make a difference, particularly mentally. Anyone who has joint problems, try it, it's definetly the way to go.

I've tried walking but end up worse off. I guess it's a question of finding something that suits your lifestyle and your physical capabilities.

hmm this is my first time ever in the forum i usually stick to the blogs
but well i thought id give my two cents on this subject
well a formula that always works
and john behstau of fitness made simple made millions from this formula or how ever u spell his name
anyways Resistance training at a cardio pace
being a personal trainer of 5 years
of course depending on the clients goals
but every one wants lean muscle
anyways hope that helped if not oh well its 4am iam kinda drunk so sue me :)

Stairs - Stairs - and more stairs

As a student at a sprawling campus if I ain't walkin' I'm climbing.

Day starts at 5:30am - Leave home by 6:30 down two flights of stairs to get out. Walk two blocks to car carrying a 45 pound backpack

Park at school - usually can't get closer than two blocks. Two flights of stairs to 8 a.m. class.

9 a.m. Down two flights Run seven blocks downhill to next class up two flights.

10:15 walk around campus three times with friend. Just because

12:30 run those seven blocks up the freaking hill and take five flights of stairs this time.

3:30 down the five flights and four blocks over. Up three flights.

7:15 End of classes for the day. Down three flights and five blocks uphill to the car again.

45 minute drive
2 blocks to house
two flights up

Remember all of this (except the driving) is carrying that damn backpack.

Have fun
Red

Can recommend netball as a good stress buster and fun! There are practice sessions which are great for toning etc, but due to a dodgy knee injury I only get to run around as ref and blow my whistle these days.

Well with my job i gotta exercise everyday. I get up around 400 am and get ready. On monday, wed. and fri we run. On tues. and thurs. it is all about the upper body. Weekends i take a break. The keys to a great work out is muscle memory. You got build the endurace first. Second is you have to take breaks or split up you workouts to let you muscles heal. If you don't it will hurt you more than help you.

In the last six months I haven't done any exercise and I gained almost 100 pounds. I'm now trying to stabilize my weight by trying to walk more everyday but I think I've gotten too fat to do so. Just getting up is so hard I must give it 2 or 3 trys before actually getting up. I use a cane and can only walk short distances. But I insist on trying everyday, just hope I'm not simply too fat to walk.

I have joined a gym. I walk 4 days a week with a steadily increase in pace and distance. I have to say I feel great I love that feeling after a good work out. I will eventually get to the weights to sculpt this body. I don't even crave junk food anymore! I have a pair of jeans that I can't wear but I am starting to see I am getting a tad bit smaller and I will eventually get those jeans over my rump!!!! I hate scales they tell you nothing just frustrate you but your clothes they never lie!!!!! :-)

Like many people who responded, I go on walks 4 times a week that last at least half an hour, then I hit the gym 3 times a week for half an hour. I enjoy fast-walking, and since I live in a mountainy place, it does wonders for building cardiovascular strength. I resumed going to the gym after a year-long break because I missed weight training in addition to cardio.

For u People in the US, there was a article in the USA WEEKEND, for men basically they are saying, "Guys, your middle is top priority". Great article basically says u don't need to have a 6 pack but we need to get healthy. right of the bat is reccommends getting active, walking everyday...repeat everyday. Trust me here in Las Vegas after dark u are still busting a sweat after the first 10 steps. Good Luck to you all.

Just my 2 cents

Walking is so important!
I haven't walked much for the last couple months, since I met Julian and now I can really feel it. Julian has a lot of difficulty walking because of the size of her breast. I gained so much weight in the last two months, probably 30 pounds - I could weight as much as 520 now... I had to get my leather trench coat enlarged and my stretch pants are at the limit.
So I decided to start walking again but it is now very hard, I get out of breath very quickly and I'm super exhausted after a walk. My back and my feet hurt. I can barely walk more than a couple blocks at a time. I have to avoid sitting down since getting up is very hard so I lean against something when I stop to rest. But I will keep doing it more and more so that even if I keep gaining weight I'll at least be trained again.
