Do any of you exercise regularly?
What kind of exercise - and how often do you work out?

Just out of curiosity:

1. Does any of you people ever exercise physically?

2. What kind of exercise/sport are you into?

3. How long have you been regularly exercising?

4. How often do you exercise?

5. What is your experiences so far? Do you feel better?

I myself have been going to my local gym for 20 years 4-5 days a week. I lift weights and use different machines to keep in good physical shape. This has helped me a lot in my daily life. I feel energetic and can handle stress quite well, and I think I owe it to the fact that I`m exercising.

I am at the gym four or five times a week as well. I lift weights and use the machines alot. I try and swim once a week if I can find the time.

I used to play alot of basketball for the city, county and the regional teams as well. Dont have alot of time to play any more though :(

I never exercise and drive to the cornershop.

I have been going to my local pub 4-5 days a week for 10 years. I handle stress very well and put that down to my consumption of stella.

Even though I suffer from a disease called lazygitus I do drag myself to the gym every week. But I hate it. It's so boring.

Mind you, I do have this rather strange addiction to badminton and that helps me relieve stress.

I have a brisk 15 minute walk to the bustop every morning and back again in the evening and its a pretty steep hill.

I share Dino's regime of pub visits, but I am on the San Miguel programme.

I have no choice...I'm diabetic and have to exercise after every meal...generally that's a brisk walk, sometimes it's cycling or swimming...I was hoping to be fit enough to start playing soccer again this season, and I probably am...unfortunately other health problems currently preclude that

Lifting weights a couple times a week, protien shakes. They are an acquired taste. But, it's been 10 months and I have gained 20 pounds, slow and steady. The payoff is there if you keep at it.

I play Squash at lunchtime 4 days a week and go to the gym 3 mornings a week, before work. I do a mixture of cardio-vascular and muscular building work in the gym. Wednesday evening I play an hour of 5-a-side soccer. I go trekking and climbing on my holidays.

Weekends I drink lots of liquids... beer mainly. :)

I used to play rugby and athletics, now that I tinker around as a webmaster I'm a right lazy so and so. It's almost like coding turns the body off from the upper torso down :)

Definetely time to do more exercise. Maybe if we powered our computers with kinetic (exercise) energy we wouldnt surf WW to death and get stiff in the process ;) ;)

>>San Miguel programme

Is that as effective as the Fosters Diet which has been sweeping round all my mates for around 12 years.

I do however couple that with the gym 3-5 times a week which stops me becoming an FB (work it out :)) by dong aerobic and resistance stuff.

Would you like to see my biceps?

I have an exercise mat that's 6"x4" on my desk that I move my wrist around on all day, with my new cordless mouse with batteries its just about all I can cope with, although I am thinking about going to the gym does that count?

That is called overtraining. Your wrist gets to much stimulation and you end up with an injured wrist because of it. ;)

2. What kind of exercise/sport are you into?

Taekwondo - 3 hours/week
Ballroom Dancing - 3 hours/week
Weight Training - 2-3 hours/week
Walking - 2 hours/week

5. What is your experiences so far? Do you feel better?

I'm pretty serious about excercise. I've got 15 years of smoking to make up for. Do I feel better? In Oh so many ways!

I walk the dog a mile every morning, and on the weekends I take off on my bike for an hour.

Does the walk from the house to the train station and from the train station to the office count?

5 days a week at 5:30 AM, weights or cardio... great way to start a long day of staring at a computer screen. :)

Nutsandbolts, badminton is great exercise when played properly. Competitive indoor badminton is a better workout than tennis and probably almost as good as racketball. Unfortunately, I don't know of any leagues or facilities in my area and haven't played in years.

I fence, twice a week. I boxed in the service, practiced martial arts, all that macho stuff guys are supposed to do when they take up arms and leave home.

I still fence, and I like to sit on the back of a horse, and if you ride seriously, it is exercise for the horse and for the person riding.

I have been meaning to go to the gym more often. For a while I went 3-4 days a week for an hour or so. I was fairly amazed how much bigger I got after a just a few week of lifting weights. Then I got a really bad ankle sprain and stopped going. I keep telling myself that I will start again next week but I have been doing that for around 2 years now.

I try to play basketball once a week, go rock climbing every so often, and, in the summer, do a lot of golfing. Walking the golf course is great exercise, probably about 3-4 miles of walking up and down hills with a 20 pound bag on your back. Plus all the foraging in the bushes for lost balls helps as well.

I'm worried about a few of you and would highly recommend a regular regimen of desk exercise as follows....

I don't have a car or a drivers license so I get everywhere I need to by bicycle. It's a pain some days, like when I only need to go to uni for ten minutes and spend an hour biking there and back, but it has helped my health in so many ways. I was starting to get high blood pressure a couple of years ago but then I moved to a new town and the bike ride got longer, blood pressure is now normal.

I also do a lot of walking, partly becauase I like it and partly to stop my legs bulking up weirdly from the riding. If you only ever exercise in one way you only build up strength (and muscle mass) in certain directions. Also brisk walking is just as good for you as running (in most ways) but without the impact problems.

And it's just nice to be able to walk around the buildings where I work, climbing stairs and carrying stuff and whatever, all without getting short of breath or tired like I did when I had an office job for a year and just sat all day without ever exercising at all.

Dante, I just clicked the mousewheel, then moved the mouse about a quarter of an inch down, then back up...

Are you sure that's effective? ;)

Counts for more excercise than I get in a day. ;)

I actually lost weight while I was in England for pubcon... regardless of the eggs and sausages every morning for a week (it's amazing all Brits don't keel over of heart-attacks at 30!), and beer every evening, etc. I blame it on the public transportation system... I think I walked more during my 3 days in London than I had in the 6 months prior.

Goes to prove my theory that my metabolism didn't go to h*ll when I hit my mid-twenties... my excercise level went there when I got a "good" computer job. Which is a mixed blessing... at least I know I could get in shape quickly if I actually ever did anything but sit!

Dante you had me going there for a few minutes. I'm surprised people here exercise, sometimes I wonder..it seems a lot of us don't leave the screen for long.

I'm a tennis addict. I've been getting out a lot this week (it's really hot and sunny in LA). I try to get to the gym 3 times a week as well.

In a month I start water polo for my college team, can't wait!

You'll get far more out of the regimen if you're using a calibrated resistance mousewheel.

After just a few weeks, people will cower at the mere threat of being poked by your fantastically forceful finger.

Dante you had me going there for a few minutes.

Sorry 2_much, but you'll need to keep at it for more than a few minutes if you want significant results. ;)

When I get away from the monitor (usually when the power goes out every few weeks) my preferred exercise is the daily practice of Tibetan and Hatha Yoga. I also go dancing on a regular basis.

Besides pint curls I'm a runner and an avid mountain biker. I typically put on 16 - 20 miles a week running and when the weather is warmer, add on an additional 10-15 miles of single track and hill climbs on my trusty Kona.

Do I feel better - two hundred percent. More lucid and able to focus for longer periods of time. I love my morning routine of being up at 6AM and out by 6:30. A few cars, a couple of other runners, but mostly the hillsides, forests, and neighborhood streets are all mine. And there are the gems.

This past Monday I was up at 5:30 to watch the Leonid Meteor shower (if you missed it - you've MISSED it cause it won't be back until 2099!). Lovely show for about 25 minutes. I counted somewhere between 40 and 50 shooting stars. Then I went for my run and passed a house with white candles in the windows. The street was quiet and the sky was just beginning to lighten with the rising sun. And I had the whole moment to myself. It's one of the reasons I get out there. Puts the rest of the day into perspective.

I used to think a lot about exercising, but then I joined Exercisers Anonymous ("EA"). Now, whenever I think about doing some exercise, I call my sponsor and he talks me out of it.

I flap my arms vigorously as I walk to the refrig to get another donut. Helps reduce the size of my male titties.

It also gets me a table immediately when I stand in line at restaurants.
