Wow... I'm really horrible... I like never exercise. This thread is making me feel incredibly guilty. I'm um, going to skip synogugue for the Saturday morning yoga class tomorrow though. I haven't been in over two weeks.

I am so jealous of runners. They make me feel sooooo guilty and besides that they look so good.

i've done it before several times and I really liked it. it's really good for building muscles. and it takes some patience since it's like a power yoga in some way
if you're tread-mill, moving, running type of person, i wouldn't recommend it though.

Worked out at the gym for about 2 1/2 hours (elliptical, stairmaster, treadmill, stationary bike, weights, etc.)

Plus: 500 sit-ups, leg-lifts and sit-ups at home.

I have dance classes 6 hours a week, and other than that I try to hit the gym as often as I can. Then i probably will run, do some spinning and situps etc. I try to get a little exercise everyday, but it's often hard to find the time

I'm loving pilates right now. Since I added it to my workout it's really tuned up and reshaped my body.

I do pilates once or twice a week, yoga once a week, 1/2 an hour of cardio 3 times a week and weights 1-2 times a week.

and I walk everywhere

I know... I get so bored running... but they're all fatless looking...


Pilates is WONDERFUL... it's not really like Yoga, like I always though it would be, in the "relaxation" sense. A lot of similar movement, but Pilates (done correctly) is a true workout. I find I can get it better alone. I recommend The Pilates Body by Brooke Siler... great book. Pilates

Today I did some tae bo (from a video) otherwise, I like to canoe/kayak, windsurf, horseride, mountain climb, run (when the air isn't cold) anything that gets me out in the bitter North East air of England, nd makes me feel like i'm not doing exercise for the sake of it

thesocalledprep, it seems like you work out a lot. what do you recommend for weight loss? you know what my current workout is (20 min stairmaster, 20 min elliptical, 1 hr circuit training, 20 min running on treadmill at various speeds), do you think it will be effective?
i read this book called Body for Life and the author recommends doing this:
http://www.bodyforlife.com/exercise/cardiotraining.asp and
http://www.bodyforlife.com/exercise/weighttraining.asp

the thing is that i don't want to do circuit training on my legs (they are in good shape from all the cardio), so i just do my arms, chest, shoulders, back and abs (basically his Upper Body Training). i still follow the cardio part that he gives, except i do it three times for twenty minutes six days a week, not just for twenty minutes three times a week.

I do a mix of Body For Life and "Sculpting Her Body Perfect" by Brad Schoenfeld. I also have the DVD set of Winsor pilates and I do that 2-3x a week. My favorite thing to do, by far, is walk briskly/jog with my dogs for about an hour... I try to do that everyday. I love being outside, so it's easy to stick to.
