What's your personal fitness regimen?

#1

Post by Marilink » Wed Feb 29, 2012 11:39 pm

Most of us at VGF aren't really athletes or sporty people. But what do you guys do to keep in shape or keep healthy?

Personally, I'm a big fan of playing pick-up games of whatever. It keeps me active but it also keeps me distracted from the fact that I'm actually working out. Ultimate Frisbee is a big one for me, I'm really into that.

Other than that, I like doing outdoors work like gardening and landscaping. And the only time I really get to read books is when I'm on an exercise bike or elliptical, so I do that once or twice a week in my school's fitness center. I'm currently reading Catching Fire.

I tie pebbles to my fingers with rubber bands to give them more of a workout when I type.

My job is pretty physically demanding. That's about it.

I jog on a treadmill with astounding irregularity. Sometimes I'll go three times a week like I should, other times I'll go a few weeks without jogging at all.

I don't do much organised sport these days due to time constraints, but I manage to walk around the local lake at least five times a week and every so often I still do my tai chi. Hmmm I should find out if there are classes that fit into my schedule now... thanks for the reminder!! :D

Oh boy.

I workout roughly 6 times a week. Most of it consists of lifting weights, other days it's swimming/running/high intensity cardio.

This is my personal training regimen

Monday : Back and Biceps
Tuesday : Swimming
Wednesday : Chest and Abs
Thursday : 3 mile run + swimming
Friday : Shoulders
Saturday : Legs

It tends to change every now and again, but I just make sure I check what I eat (No fried foods, eat whole foods, no sugary juices/soda/alcohal)

I've always loved being in the weightroom, so it's never been a hassle for me to go and workout.

I lift weights and throw in some ab exercises 2-3 times a week, and then I play basketball or volleyball a few times a month.

Whenever it's actually nice outside my roommate and I go hiking [since we live at the foot of a pretty hill that is a GREAT workout to climb]

however it is not actually nice enough to warrant hiking very often so we usually just use the free workout equipment at our unit which is less fun

I try to run 4-5 times a week, usually 3-5 miles each time, although I've run as little as 2 miles and as much as 10. This week was the exception because I was sick. -CSM

I golf, I walk/jog/run on the treadmill or the elliptical, and I've even taught myself how to play tennis. What I'd like to do next is learn how to defend myself with a sword. For real.

My life is pretty physically demanding, considering not only my job but also the fact that I often have to run to a bus stop with a backpack.

Other than that, I go for walks when the weather's nice, or ride on our stationery bike whenever I remember.

My fitness regimen is pretty simple.

1. "Don't eat the whole thing."
2. "Oops."
