    Re: Do you exercise?

    Hi Flux,

    I play badminton once a week.

    In Denmark, my usual mode of transport is my motorbike but normal motorbike insurance doesn't cover the winter months when the roads are icy and slippery, unless you pay extra heavy premiums and like playing russian roulette with your life.

    Last year I used to take public transport over winter instead of riding my motorbike to and from work. This year I've decided I ride my push bike instead, and I started cycling 2 days ago. Damn, I ache in places I didn't know it was possible to ache in.

    The trip is 10 kilometres each way, so I'll be clocking up 100 km a week unless we get really heavy snow.

    Regards
    Syxx

    I lift weights three times a week to stay fit. In the winter there's also skiing and in the summer swimming but I do those mostly for the fun of it, not as a serious sport.

    I put once a week, but that varies a lot. I usually go to the gym once a week and do some weights and swim laps, but I do pushups etc at home, and would rather work out by going snowboarding or surfing. I do need to do more though, my wife is starting to complain my pecs aren't as big as they used to be :whistling:

    Wow, Flux posting in the OTF. We may have to clean up our act for a while, just until we can get him to leave :grin:


    I put once in a while, for me that means every couple weeks. Whenever there is a big game I'm at the field (paintball), and that is six hours of solid exercise. That's only once every couple weeks, though. I have taken to doing pushups and situps every day now, and as soon as I get it fixed I'll be taking my bike out again. My farthest distance before it broke was 6.5 miles, so I'll be going for at least 7. Doesn't seem like much, but the hills I ride on are brutal.

    Oh, and as for weight/height, I'm a magnificent 6'0" and 135 lbs.

    You shouldn't do any of that bending over bull****, that puts incredible strain on the disc's in your back. If they are out of alignment in anyway then there a good chance one could slip. I know, its happened to me and I've received direct advice against doing any such exercise. :thumbsdown:

    Well, it is recommended to know if you have any problems, I believe that advice is for healthy people (if anyone on this planet is healthy, that is).

    I lift 3 days, 1 day off, repeat. Generally just under 2 hours, bulking up right now, so no cardio.

    Does my work count? Not trying to be smart but it's one giant workout constant lifting, pushing, shoving and sliding not to mention the added bonus of working with super hot steam the whole 8 1/2 hours I'm at work

    Re: Do you exercise?

    I don't do any concerted exercise, but being a grad student/college instructor, I do a lot of walking and stair climbing. I almost never take an elevator.

    I really should exercise some since I'm already paying for the University's fitness center in my student fees.

    Spinns: It should. I've gained ~40 pounds in the last year since my old job involved a LOT more activity than my current one. I used to be on my feet ~9 hours a day, now I teach algebra in 75 minute intervals.

    EDIT: A few years ago, I started working out for 1.5 hours everyday. I did it for two weeks and once I skipped one day, I never went back. I think that doing it everyday was a bad idea.
