    Default How often do you exercise?

    Following on from the 5-a-day poll a few weeks ago, thought I'd now assess the fitness of the DF membership with a poll about how often you exercise.

    By exercise I mean at least 30 minutes where the heart rate is elevated beyond it's normal resting heart rate. This includes brisk walks as well as the usual cycling, swimming, gym visits, running, football, rugby and other sports etc.

    If you do exercise please post with your choice of fitness routine, frequency and duration.

    Thanks

    Default Re: How often do you exercise?

    Recently I've made a real concerted effort and started going to the gym every other day. I'm completely out of shape and it's been a while since I gave the gym such a sustained effort.

    Thankfully I'm at the stage now where I'm quite happy going and can feel my stamina and eagerness increase upon each visit.

    I hit the treadmill first, 5 minutes walking at a brisk pace (6.7) for warm up then I increase the speed to 10.0. As of yesterday I ran for 17 minutes, but I increase the aim time by a minute. So tomorrow, I'll aim for 18 minutes... and so on and so forth.

    I then head over to the gorrila gym pit:
    3 sets of 12 on the abdominal weight machine - 32.5kg (I believe)
    3 sets of 12 on the chest press - 27.5kg
    3 sets of 12 on the leg press - 30kg

    I usually up the load every week, or may load on the 5kg weight on my last set of 12.

    Onto 10 minutes of the elliptical trainer and 5 minutes on the rower.

    I do that every other day - I'm nowhere near as fit as I'd:

    A) want to be
    II) want to look

    But hopefully in the not to distant future, as my cardio increases so will my routine.

    I have on occasion went to the gym two days in a row, the eager beaver that I was, but I was fucked on the third day and a bit 'meh' on the 4th.

    5-6 times a week, have a day or two off but with gym, road running, rugby etc it means I'm doing something almost everyday.

    I train capoeira twice a week (sometimes 3 times) which is 1 hour to 1 and a half hours of constant exercise. It's more knackering that running or jogging and uses every muscle in your body.
    I also play squash once a week for an hour

    I train twice a week with a personal trainer, weights. I am currently training another 2 sessions a week on my own. I would normally train every week day but I am very busy at the moment and am finding it hard to get the extra sessions in.

    Don't really do any exercise, and feeling like I should make a change very soon. Thinking of getting an exercise bike and alternating one day cardio, one day weights. Probably will still be thinking about it in a months or two knowing me.

    I cycle to work every day and it takes about 25 mins each way, so I do about 4 hours every week at a minimum.

    love it & do no other exercise, drink beer all the time and eat good food and shit food when I want and I seem to be maintaining a healthy balance and weight, but i'f i'm honest, I shit a lot too

    I can't stand people who never do any exercise, fatties seem to always be slobbish self interested and depressed. Healthy body, healthy mind, or if not healthy mind, at least not gorging out on maccrap and food they don't even understand what is in it.

    I go to the gym twice a week but now that the weather's picking up, I'm going to try and go three times a week (twice during the week and once on the weekend).

    I mainly work on upper body strength and I've found myself doing less and less cardio. I play football and badminton every other week. I aim to get back into running on the treadmill for 30mins each time I go to the gym.

    Cycle to work every day, 2 miles there, 2 back...5 times a week. Although this is totally weather dependent; aint geting wet for no one. And then 30-50 press-ups in the morning and at night, and try to eat healthily...never had a kebab in 3 years.

    It's the stomach I should work on though.

    I consider my work as exersize. I`m an engineer and am always on the go. Be it running up and down stairs, ladders, hanging cat5 cabinets on walls or poulling 8*150metre cable runs in one....all adds up.

    Then I come home and give my right arm a fair workout before rogering her ragged for the rest of the night....
