How Much Exercise Do You Get Per Week?

Post: # 73056Unread post the wizard »

... what kind of physical exercise do you get on a weekly basis?

... do you have a formal workout routine of some kind you engage in, like jogging or going to a gym? or do you get enough exercise from your regular life that a formal workout isn't necessary? or is your day too busy to think about exercise? or do you give a hoot about exercise at all?

... i've jogged in the past, that's a great way to stay in shape. these days though i get a good workout just from using a bicycle as my primary source of transportation where i reside ...

... how about you? what are your thoughts on exercise?

I try to take a short walk in the back yard, and that's about it for me.
Me having a back, and neck issue is killing me slowly.
I have a new bike trainer stand so i'm planning to bring my bike in, and building up some time on it.
Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advise, and a good conversation.

Don't do any exercise really other than walking, which is around 6 to 8 miles a week I'd guess at. Used to go swimming but don't bother anymore.

So do I, I'd carry on with it if there wasa pool outside... or an ice skating rink, learn to skate... always wanted to do that. Oh well...

It's the best low impact exercise you can get, and anyone can do it.
If not for the filth in local pools I would use one near me .

It's all those bodies in the water as well... when you really start thinking about it, it's disgusting really. I never used to think about it but I do now.

I rather go swimming in a cow pond, it's cleaner even if it looks dirty.

I go on the treadmill 3 times per week, do some ab crunches, planking, etc. I find that's good enough since it maintains my weight and provides sufficient cardiac health.

I was going to the gym 3 nights per week, but haven't gone for a while as I've been too busy. :(

The best I can do now is go on power walks a few times a week. Hopefully I'll get back into the gym routine again soon.

I gave up my gym membership, when the governments decided to tax it.

They wanted an additional 12% over top of my monthly fee.

I said no way am I going to pay the governments any tax, on my already taxed money, for a fitness membership.

I also cancelled all my subscriptions to magazines and papers.
I don't concern myself, with other peoples thoughts. They can think what they want, and grind it around in their head. I always get a good nights rest. They however, are exhausted, thinking about me. My trade mark, :laugh: :laugh:

I'm cutting back on everything myself, the thieves in government just want more than I want to give.

But why put a tax on a fitness membership and at 12 %, yes, I said no to that Idea.

Since eating competitively is considered a sport in some places does practicing for it qualify as exercise?

Because if it does, I'm adding stuffing myself with obscene amounts of food to my daily routine. :woot:

I have the metabolism of a sloth, and heart rate of one almost so maybe it's exercise just for me to get up in the morning .
Are we making excuses now ? :teehe:
