    I try to do push-ups everyday before lunch/dinner. Started off with 10 but now I can do up to 30 :D

    I'm usually physically active enough to stay in decent shape anyway, whether or not I do much excercise.

    About 35 push-ups and sit-ups per day.

    I do about 30 minutes of calisthenics (push-ups, crunches, squats, etc.) 3 or 4 times a week. I used to do much more, but now I just exercise enough to keep myself in reasonably good shape. I think I'm going to start going to the gym this fall, though.

    I never did anything period, but this week I have started my efforts to go to the gym 5 times a week...3 weights, 2 cardio, weekends off. So about 5 hours a week.

    I was doing yoga four times a week before my car accident last month, but I have let it slide a bit since then, but I am finally all better, so I am going to get back into doing that. I also bought myself a bike this morning, so I am going to try to ride that at least three times a week. I have a lot of weight to lose, I am hopeful though that those things will work.

    I ride my bike to school everyday, that count? :p That takes about an hour every day in total.

    Besides that I have spur of the moment bursts of energy, that make me get into exercising. But usually I get bored of push-ups, ... after about 3-4 weeks.

    I know I should do more, but I never have and I'm still reasonably fit/thin/inshape, whatever.

    I don't really do any excise. I don't need to, I stay the same size all the time. Although I'm guessing it'll all catch up with me when I'm older.
    I consider my work to be enough though. I work in a cafe so I'm on my feet all day walking around. That's enough for me.

    Everyday, I go to the gym. I The first thing I do is lift weights. I use the machines that work on my biceps and triceps, as well as my pectorals, primarily. Afterward, I do some free weights, where I work out the same muscles but at the same time other muscles are being worked as well. Lastly, I go onto the treadmill where I walk for a mile and then run for a mile. Before each and every exercise, I stretch properly to ensure that I don't cramp.

    During the fall, I do marching band so that's a lot of walking and moving around, so that's a good deal of exercise. And every now and then I play basketball or some other sport.

    That's basically what I do.

    This is where my semi-naked posing pictures comes in.

    ----------

    I go to the gym 3 times a week;
    20 minutes incline run
    20 minutes row
    20 minutes cycling

    Couple minute breather, then move on to the weights for however long it takes.

    I have a membership at my gym, so I may as well use it, besides if I didn't I'd have a huge beer gut. ;'(

    How? / I haven't seen one of those in, like, 3 years. :lol:

    I guess, not drinking beer helps with the beer gut... :p


    I got a job for the summer, three weeks ago and I've lost weight/build up some muscles. I'll continue this I've gotten into something of a rythm, now that I finished working.

    I'm pretty much a fitness freak. :lol:

    I go to the gym for weights and cardio at least 3 to 4 times a week. When I first arrive, I do a mile on the treadmill (takes me about 8 min on a lazy day :p) and then I'll do a mile on the cycle which will take me about 4 minutes.

    On to the weights, I'll do 3 sets of 10 reps on pretty much everything except for free weights. I do my biceps, triceps, chest and shoulders. After my upper body, I'll do my thighs, hamstrings, and calves.

    Later on in the day (usually at night), I go to Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts classes. We usually do a ton of cardio and if you've ever watched any fights on UFC or Strikeforce, you can probably gather that endurance and stamina is key. If you don't think you will get gased fighting on the ground or doing stand up, then try it. :p

    That's pretty much my routine. Jiu Jitsu has really given me a focus while I'm at the gym. I'm not longer moving weight around just to do so. Every muscle I strengthen helps me tighten my game for Jiu Jitsu and gives me an advantage over my opponent. It's pretty much my obsession and it's the ultimate motivation!

    I usually ride my bike for about two hours a day. No real destination. Just hop on and go.

    I walk half an hour a day, or try to, being pregnant and all, sorta guarantees an easy labour.

    I used to do pushups in between videogames when we're in a lobby :lol: I get REALLY bored at the gym, the only thing I do is watching TV over there so I might as well be here, doing push ups for a minute, play a videogame and then do some more.

    But I got bored with that aswell :lol:
