Default What's Your Routine?

I know we have lots of threads about exercise accountability but because I am nosey and lazy, I wanted to see what others do for fitness routine

Mine at the moment is - 5 days 1 hour cardio, 3 days I add weight training (upper/lower/core) and I rest the 2 days my bf is off work

I don't really have a set routine. My life is too busy to set a schedule.

However, I'm currently on Day 6 of the 30-Day Shred, but you already know that.

Other than that, I walk regularly and sometimes swim and do water aerobics.

I workout 6 days/week from home.
I recently added weight training again to my routine now that my injuries have healed somewhat. I switched my routine as well. This is what I'll be following for a month and then re-evaluate.

M/W/F - Weight Training 1 hour (5 mins warm up run), brisk walk @ work (lunch time)
Tu/Th/Sa - abs 20 mins and Cardio 1 hour (Treadmill/Track)

I can actually have a routine now that I'm not working. Although, when I start working in another few months, things might change. Le Sigh.

3-4 days a week, one of the following: 1 hour dancing/1 workout video/3.5 mile walk

6 days a week, one of the following: 45 min - 1 hr tennis/1 hour 2.5 mile walk

So most days, I work out twice a day. I enjoy it though - NEVER thought I'd say that...

I haven't really exercised in the last 2 weeks, but usually it's some combo of yoga, biking, zumba, and hiking depending on the weather, time of day, etc.

I am just getting back into exercise, so currently I walk for 30 mins in the morning before work, 5 days a week.

When I was really in my groove I did cardio for 30 mins 5 days a week and weights 4 days a week (2 upper and 2 lower.) Man! I used to feel really good!

i go to the gym 4 days a week, sat, sun, tues and thurs. i do 30 mins cardio, 30 mins weights.

i do an exercise class on friday, either aqua aerobics, spinning or boxercise, depending on what time i'm able to get someone to watch my 2 year old.

i also take walks on the beach every morning with my son, but i dont think they count much, as a 2 year old doesnt walk very fast. its part of my routine, but its mainly to get him used to the idea of doing something every day.

I like to change things up every month or so and I also like to do programs that have a set amount of weeks to them--like BFL and C25K--I really like having a 'finish line' to get to.

So here's what I'm doing right now

MWF~ strength training and abs (I alternate upper and lower body), HIIT (High intensity interval training) on the treadmill alternating brisk walk and running

TThS~ C25K (currently just finished week 2)

Sun~ scheduled day off--although I might be adding in a brisk walk, still haven't decided.

For the first time I'm exercising regularly and not fighting myself. I walk 3 mornings a week with my neighbor. I enjoy it and it helps that I know she's waiting for me, and might not go if I don't.

My husband is training for a marathon, so every Sunday he does his long run and I bike with him. Last weekend we did 16 miles, tomorrow we only have to do 9, but next weekend we do 18. I enjoy biking (haven't ridden a bike in over 20 years until now!) and I'm helping him out by carrying extra water for him.

I volunteer twice a week at a therapeutic riding center. I usually walk anywhere from 3-4 hours a day. It's not a super fast walk, but it's burning calories! Plus there's running around the pastures trying to catch horses, which definitely gets the heart pumping.

I will say I'm quite worried about what's going to happen once the marathon is over and winter comes. I'll still do the volunteering, but the other outdoor activities will come to an end. I really hate the treadmill and the gym in general. I think I'm going to have to learn to love it, or at least endure it.

Daily -- 60 minutes on my upright stationary bike (difficulty "levels" 4 & 5 of 1-8 levels, plus a user program that consists of interval levels 3 & 5).

Every other day -- (upper) weights. 3 sets of 20 reps of 5 arm movements, plus pushups, reverse pushups.

Whenever I Get Around To It/Several times a week -- other body exercises using my ankle weights. This I try to do 3x a week, but it's boring and so sometimes it is less. I need to do more of these "floor exercises" as I call them. Crunches, leg lifts, reverse crunches, butt lifts. I do randomly try to do squats throughout other days.

Exercise I Don't Log, But I Like -- several times a week, up to 30 minutes at a time, I put on music and dance. Sometimes at a high intensity,sometimes at a low intensity.
