I used to work out 3-4 times a week at the DoJo and a couple times a week with weights with the occasional run thrown in for fun.

But with rapidly advancing Health Problems I just mainly walk and stretch and do Kata now.

I just did it for competition and fun and as a way to stay fit

started back up again, and i'm weening myself onto my old regular routine.

starting out with pilates to help stretch my muscles and get the lean muscle back into action,

second, free weights, thats always important for strengthing your muscles to help support your skeleton and posture.

third is interval training with kathy smith, she's so spunky she just makes me wanna do more.

once i'm back on my regimen, I feel it is necessary to maintain my figure with free weights and cardio three times per week maybe more.

and it never hurt to increase your poundage (in weights that is lol) to give your body a bit more of a challenge.

I would love more then anything to get some skates and go on the frozen lake but I have a fear of falling through the ice so that prob won't happen too bad.

I have been doing a "stairstepper machine" which is pretty hard. But a friend suggested that I visit a 7 story building and run up to the top -- 5 times in a row.

Mannnn, that is tough!!!! The key is to hit every step (don't try to take two steps at a time). My legs felt like rubber bands and felt like they were going to "give out" on me. I could barely stand for three days. LOL

I'm going to try and do it twice a week.

running everyday... That's one of my goals... I would love to run everyday, my neighbood is so cute with the scenery and all I would love to run around here, but I can't run 100 meters without sucking wind... Seriously, running is so cool, I used to hate it, when I could run.. Go figure.

lmao...Looks like how the old guys warm up in the gym...of course - a little slower....

I've been out of the gym myself recently and need to get back....I have a membership with Gold's....can't really say I care for it too much - I plan on switching back to a privately owned gym when my contract's up...

For me, it's all about changing things up while still keeping order....The best routine I've found is to start out with your heavy cardio....Maybe 30-40 minutes on a bike going as fast as you can make that puppy go....Then end it with 5 minutes of leasurely cardio...

Hop off and hit the weights....It's a good idea to combine both Nautilis and free weights, so that you have the ability to have both control and form....Always best to have someone spot you - Try doing upper body one day, lower body the next day, abs the next, back the next, and so on....

Then finish your workout with another light 5-10 minutes of cardio....

Some people work better with a fixed pattern, but I like to do different activities to keep my body prepared for anything...Talk walks on the weekends, Swim laps instead of going on the treadmill, Go mountain biking.....Make it take up a good portion of your day, so you'll be tired and get plenty of rest to start all over

And never forget that your body will like you a hell of a lot more and respond quicker if you treat it with the occasional dip in the hot tub or massage!

It's random, really.

Every once in a while, I'll go for a 1-2 hour walk, (NOT a stroll, this is someone 5'9" trying to match strides with someone 6'4" type, I walk faster than I jog.) SOmetimes, I'll do a butload of sit ups. This is why I can binge horridly and not gain much wieght, lol...

If I had a motivated walking partner, I'd follow a routine....but I'm not really interested in doing this for health. I do this because I can't stand to stay cooped up in the house any longer.

Because it makes me feel & look good. That's all.

Posted in the wrong thread!!!!!

Maybe the moderator would be so kind as to eliminate all of my posts from this particular thread, as I had no intention of posting here.

If you can show me where the apostles (or even the Lord Jesus Himself) said that Sabbath keeping is a requirement, then I will recant. But you can't. And you know it!!!

The attempt to yoke New Testament believers with the Old Testament Sabbath is an apostasy. The true believers of Christ are yoked with His grace. The apostisized are yoked with the requirement to fulfill the law.

Which will save you: Jesus or Sabbath keeping? Here's the litmus test:
1. You can reject the Sabbath and still be saved.

2. You cannot reject Jesus and still be saved.

Anyone who says that the rejection of Sabbath keeping is damned is -- teaching a false doctrine!!!

Having an episode are we?

I keep to a routine of 3-4 days a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, the 4th depends on how much time I have over the weekend.

I always start with the standard warmup stretches (not too intense or injury could result during the workout). Then 5-10 minutes of light cardio to get my heartrate up and the blood flowin, this also kickstarts the process of converting carbs to starches to sugar, freeing up plenty of energy for the workout.

Then I move to my workout which I try to keep at an intensity around 8 (out of 10), primarily upper body with mild lower body since Im still recovering from a knee injury. Workout usually lasts 40-60 min, moving to a minimum 20 minutes of moderate cardio (saving the main cardio work until after the main workout means you've already burned away most of your sugars and carbs, and will be working mainly off fat), ending with a lot of good stretching. Then waiting about an hour for my heartrate to slow down before eating anything.

I exercise for many reasons, the way it makes me feel, the energy levels it gives me, but largly because I believe the body is just a vessel, a machine, and it should be well maintained and in top working order just like a cherished automobile.

> also a full day of rest between workout days is imperative. The body must be able to focus its resources on rebuilding and restocking depleted nutrients.

Well, I accidently posted in this thread, so I might as well say something, right?

I lift weights and so some cardio.

posted on Feb, 2 2005 @ 12:35 AM
Free weights...F**K CARDIO...well, actually I should do more...and quit smoking...
Bench and Squat mostly
I like being big and strong (it makes up for being stupid)
and not all weightlifters are gay (you should see how filthy my place is

P.S.-I also like the 12 oz. curl and workin' the joints

[edit: too many curls]
