Do you have an exercise routine? 🚴 If so, what do you do?


#1

I’ve been off and on with exercise routines for many years (more off than on, sadly). Since the start of summer this year, however, I’ve been extremely consistent and it feels great!

For the last few months I’ve been getting back into a routine with this beginner’s weight training routine. I’ve just recently moved on to a more intermediate weight training routine, as I’m looking to ‘bulk’ until the end of the year.

On the spur of the moment I also signed up for a 1/2 marathon next May, so I’m slowly easing myself into :runner: a couple times per week.


All about fitness trackers. :runner: Love them? Hate them? Use them?

I’m trying to run 5 days a week when I first wake up. I find that getting it out of the way first thing in the morning works best for me. Otherwise life always gets in the way.

I’m currently doing a 8-level bodyweight training routine 3 times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri). I was doing a lot of biking during the summer but that has slowed down a bit now that it’s rainy season in Vancouver. Just started getting into jogging/running as well, which was tough as first!

I am one of those crossfit nuts. I know crossfit has a bad reputation with the general lifting community, but in regards to functional strength and endurance crossfit does the trick for me. I’ve seen improvements in both strength and endurance.

My routine basically consists of being there at least once a day, minimum 5 days a week. :runner:

5 days a week…you’re super active! I’ve never done crossfit but have always been interested in it. It’s good to hear that it’s been working well for you / you’ve been improving your strength and general fitness level. :thumbsup:


#6

Everyday(ish): yoga, walking (distance or incline) ballet, karate

When I feel like it: running (cross country or marathon) swimming, gymnastics


#7

Admitting it is the first step😂


#8

Wow, you’re an active one @Lunae! What type of karate do you practice? I used to practice Shotokan, but it’s been a long time since I’ve hit a bag :punch:


#9

Spinning, running, yoga and weight training. 5-6 days a week. Usually 2 hours a day


#10

Are you still training for that marathon Jeff?


#11

What can I say…vata? Yes! Shotokan also! And I’m by no means a professional at any of my activities, but I learn them each so I can practice whatever I want depending on what I feel like, lately it’s been all dance all the time!


#12

I am! I’m doing the BMO 1/2 marathon on May 7th here in Vancouver. @maria registered for it too, so we’re both working to get several training runs in each week.

That’s great :smiley: I did Shotokan years ago as well. I think having a diverse set of activities that you can practice when the mood is right is a great strategy to staying active. Way to go! :thumbsup:


#13

I walk mostly. But I did find an app that I am using to motivate myself to exercise more.


#14

Dotchianni what app are you using


#15

I’ve started going to gym 5 times a week, mostly lifting, and focusing on a different muscle group each day. I’m also doing yoga every day, using the Down Dog app since most of the content is free! Only on week 3 of being active and I already feel so much better.


#16

Yes, I do and I am sticking with because it is indeed a routine. It is the Happy Body by Aniela and Jerzy Gregorek. I have mentioned on this forum that the happy body as well as Mealime with Amazon Feesh have greatly improved my life!

I am looking for a similar 30 mins routine for Pilates, but so far I have not found it.
