View Full Version : Do you exercise?
February 17th, 2013, 02:00 PM
Whether it's weightlifting, playing sports, or even the occasional walk, do you exercise? If so, what do you do to keep yourself active, and how often do you do it?
I weightlift 4 times a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday) and I try to work every muscle in my body. I sometimes play basketball during the weekends and I enjoy walking.

I always work out with my husband. What usually motivates us is the fact that we're doing it together, we go to the gym 3 times a week(Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) and take a nice walk and talk on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and on Sunday we just sit around the house and do random things, that's our lazy day. :P

The only exercise I get is walking around campus, ha...
I never really got into exercise, I know it isn't a 'trend' and I really should do it, but I never find the motivation to. I eat really healthy and I don't have any weight or health issues and I'm happy with how I look, so I have no motivation to exercise at all lol.

I swim two or three times a week at my school's pool! I would do it three times every week if I could but sometimes it's closed for one of my days so I do it twice instead.
February 17th, 2013, 04:14 PM
My job is physical work, so I consider that a workout.
February 17th, 2013, 04:34 PM
I don't go out of my way to exercise often since I'm content with how much I currently move, but sometimes I take my daughter to the dog park and we play with dogs until I'm exhausted and she's bored.

I don't exercise. The only thing even close to it is bowling and that's not really exercise even though it's a sport.
February 17th, 2013, 05:00 PM
I used to exercise all of the time. But, with recent breathing problems I've had, sometimes even the smallest amount of exercise I do is impossible. Once I get the problem sorted (hopefully) I'll be back to the way I was.

I exercise every week day and take a break during the weekend. My stamina is rapidly improving and it's awesome.
February 17th, 2013, 06:58 PM
Eh, yeah, when i'm not being lazy I do quite a lot for fitness.
I box and do a few martial arts, does that count?
February 17th, 2013, 07:32 PM
Not specifically. I end up exercising while I play with the stray cats, though. c: And play-fighting with my best friend (which is kind of like an odd version of wrestling, but with more throwing and tackling), but that's just for fun, despite how painful it can get.

The only exercise I get is walking around campus. I lack motivation to exercise; I'm a genuine lazybones. I have a gym on campus, and I had to pay upfront for it. My friend gave me a brief tour around the gym. So many things to do, but where to start? I can't even do push ups at home, hah...
February 17th, 2013, 10:53 PM
Uhh... does lifting 25-50 pounds of food and walking around at my job count? Otherwise, I don't get a thing.
February 17th, 2013, 11:58 PM
I'm a pretty lazy girl at heart, but I do have to walk half the way to get to where I work and I often jog around coastal tracks, so I can have the nice fresh sea breeze cooling me down on a hot day.
February 18th, 2013, 12:29 AM
Not always. Usually on a Saturday morning, snowboarding like heck while the snow still lasts.
February 18th, 2013, 01:59 AM
I go to the gym 2-3 times a week usually. I mainly do some warmup cardio for 5 mins and the rest is weights or resistance training :3 sometimes I'll go for a swim.n
February 18th, 2013, 02:01 AM
I would but I can't find the time to even go for a run lately because life is too busy at the moment. if it gets less busy I'll will exercise and maybe join a gym.
February 18th, 2013, 02:27 AM
I've started going swimming twice a week just to improve my fitness aha. I'm not obese or anything, just incredibly lazy - I always take the bus rather than walking anywhere unless I have to.
Swimming is about the only thing I can do my lungs are crippled from bronchitis and chronic lung disease I had when I was a baby so I get pretty tired if I run anywhere, I don't when I swim though which is good c:
February 18th, 2013, 03:35 AM
Ever since I got a car [~4 years ago] I've gone for a run every morning, if I didn't I'm confident I'd turn into a snorlax. I play far too many computer games and eat far too much unhealthy food to not do so.
February 18th, 2013, 03:38 AM
I'm not super fit, but I do get a fair bit of exercise. I play tennis regularly, and practice every day. Not to mention I have to walk up and down four flights of stiars about 10+ times a day at school.
February 18th, 2013, 03:59 AM
Work in a liquor store is pretty much all exercise. You're on your feet for 6-9 hours at a time and you're often lifting beer cartons or other cartons around the place doing things with them.
Other than that, lol exercise no.
February 18th, 2013, 04:13 AM
I have 2-3 training sessions per week in taekwondo. And I go for allaround muscle training 2 per week at the gym. Also I walk daily. So I guess Im in somewhat good shape. But I have to. Since army is coming soon. And I realy need to get into shape before it. :/
February 18th, 2013, 04:25 AM
I work out at my local gym three days a week: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. I know, it's an weird schedule, but the gym is closed on Fridays so I can't do the normal Monday/Wednesday/Friday thing. My work out routine is a combination of freeweight and resistance training, both of which my gym has lots of. I try to give each of my muscles a good workout each day, since I've chosen to do full-body training instead of a split routine.
Other than that, well, I used to do Karate. I got a Yellow belt, but then I had to quit due to stress from school. The only exercise I get now other than the gym is gym class at my school. My teacher's a ruthless jerk, but that's another story.
February 18th, 2013, 07:14 PM
Every wednesday and friday night I run/walk (depending on whether I feel like running or not) about three miles on my school's track. I also hike a lot. Usually I do Echo Mountain, which is a mile and a half trail leading up a small mountain that has many switchbacks and is very steep, and we do that trail every saturday. And sometimes we will just do other strange hikes on random days, usually up to 6 miles round trip.
Otherwise, P.E. is kinda my only excersize.
February 18th, 2013, 07:23 PM
Lol I got a YMCA member pass but don't go there too often. I should be hittin the weights like I used to but na, I don't (no wonder my muscle is going away and I'm getting out of shape) lol. I go up there every now and then to play basketball with my friends but that's about it.
February 18th, 2013, 07:40 PM
I have always wanted to lift weights but seem to never find the time or i'm probably just lazy lol.
February 18th, 2013, 07:48 PM
I've been getting back into a regular lifting & running routine the past few weeks. Gotta look good for vacation, haha.
February 18th, 2013, 07:52 PM
I do exercise when I can, although a lot of the time I just push it back to a later time. Over. And over. And over.
I gotta start getting in shape for the summer, though. Procrastination is terrible haha :P

I have a background in icehockey and football (European) as a young child/early teen. Did martial arts during my entire teenage years.
Now I do olympic weightlifting, which I also compete in. Train about 5 times/week. I also have a job that I'm very active in (mostly walking).
March 24th, 2013, 02:41 AM
Not as much as I should.I go out to walk every once in a while but it's never really alot. Sometime I walk to a park and walk a couple laps around it, though that's as far I usually go for exercise. Tried lifting weights a couple time but I never do more than 10 reps. During the summer I exercised a lot more. I walked to a park 2 miles from my house almost everyday , walk a couple laps, and do the workout course they have there. soemtimes I brought a jump rope and skipped for about 5 minutes. I'm a bit overweight and I could do more exercise than I do now. Maybe when the weather's a bit warmer I might.
March 24th, 2013, 03:38 AM
DO YOU EVEN LIFT, BRO?
I train on Monday and Wednesday, then I try to get a bike ride in during the weekend if the weather is looking good. I suppose I also do some crunches and push ups at home too, when I can.
March 25th, 2013, 10:18 AM
Pretty much all the exercise I get is from cycling between school and home everyday. That alone pretty much gets me half an hour (or longer in poor weather conditions) of intense exercise. Along with that, walking around the campus should give me an extra 10 to 15 minutes every day, and I have about an hour of PE (and along with that, another 25 or so minutes of cycling back and forth between school and the sports hall they had to rent because they couldn't accomodate all students) every week.
I think with all that, I exercise enough to be healthy. It's not like I am overweight or anything. To the contrary, I am underweight, despite my eating habits, because my metabolism is fast as hell. I am not physically strong at all either, and my condition is still rather poor. Almost all people in my class are members of a youth football association, except for myself.
March 25th, 2013, 01:12 PM
soemtimes, but I get bored often :/
March 25th, 2013, 01:27 PM
Sometimes but not often since my neighborhood is rather small and full of hills which would not make bike riding enjoyable, I have a set of dumbells at home though which I use a couple of times a week.
March 25th, 2013, 01:29 PM
xulek: nice, I see you are a roosterteeth fan as well :)
I think those hills would be nice for a walk wouldn't you say?
March 25th, 2013, 04:03 PM
Oooh no. I am active, yeah, but never do I exercise. It bores me. I dislike playing organized sport, I don't like gym activities, etc etc. I love to go outside and go walking, exploring, wading, swimming. I'm ridiculously fit for how sedentary I am and I can keep up with my Boy Scout buddies so it's cool. I just like to be out running around with friends~
March 25th, 2013, 06:35 PM
Im not very active, but I do try to exercise sometimes. I swim in the summer and go walking in my neighborhood.
March 25th, 2013, 06:53 PM
I frequently take my bike for a good 30-minute cycle around my neighborhood. If I have the time and I feel like it (these two things must come together or else it's a no-go), I would do laps in my residence club's Olympic-sized swimming pool. If I don't have time for any of the above, walking up to 8 floors' flights of steps 4 times a week in my uni's building is good exercise. I dislike waiting for the lift.
March 25th, 2013, 08:42 PM
Nah, I don't exercise at all. (I've even regressed to taking the closer bus where I don't have to walk at all instead of the quicker one that's about a 10 minute walk from my house. <_<)
Sometimes I'd love to take a Yoga class or figure out how gyms work but there's a week of every month where all I can do is curl up on the couch and not move at all or I have to take painkillers that only take away some of the pain. I wouldn't be able to work out/attend classes at all during that time and I'm almost 100% certain I'd just feel behind and not go back after the first time I missed because I get that way about a lot of things. I guess it's not very good justification to never try at all but it is what it is, I guess. :/
March 26th, 2013, 12:27 AM
Although I'm sure I could probably benefit from it, I don't actually work out. There's a lot of physical labor at my job, though, so it's not like I'm inactive, I just don't exercise on the side.
