    Default How much exercise do you get each week?

    In a recent discussion about insomnia, it was noted that exercising on a regular basis makes it a lot easier to get a good amount of sleep. Webmastering, in general, is a pretty sedentary job. And when you throw in the fact that many affiliates are working long and crazy hours, and frequently working other jobs, it can be tough to squeeze in work out time. How much time do you spend each week exercising? And what kind of exercising do you do?

    None now. I used to exercise around 4-5 hours per week, but then had to stop due to a viral illness. Finding it difficult to return tp my exercise habit.

    I'm starting to work out more. Hopefully, I'll be in good enough shape to run some races in April or May.

    Don't suppose finger exercises from mouse clicking would count?

    I like getting out for a walk everyday that I can. Everyone should take time to exercise some each week.

    Everyday for at least an hour and if I don't get in everyday then I make up for it. Also try never to go more than a day without exercise. The six hour bike ride on Monday put me in credit for the week...

    It's part of the reason I have made a pact to follow the warm weather because I have zero motivation to exercise when it's cold.

    I do 2 RPM/Spin classes and 1-2 Pump classes a week at the gym, sometimes I mix it up with a water aerobics class and I try to get a few walks or a good bike ride in. And sometimes I do a 45 min workout with half cardio and half weights in the gym.
    I try my best to get some excercise every day, even if it's some tricep dips, crunches, planks or a quick brisk walk.

    I attempt to get a walk in when the weather allows, looking to buy an elliptical or treadmill. My doc wants me to walk as part of the healing process but sometimes the weather is not conducive to it and some days I am in too much pain to walk beyond the house. A few laps around the kitchen and dining room have to do.

    I am sure we can pick up one cheap at a yard sale, they always have little used exercise equipment that is like new .

    Now that the weather's getting cooler I've now started doing my fitness DVDs again, either first thing some mornings or at the weekend. I also take my dog out every morning and when I get home from work. I recently bought an exercise bike that I use in the mornings - only 15 minutes at a time at the moment but I'll build it up.

    I'm a Civilian Instructor with our local Air Cadets, and they recently had a walk down to raise money. It was about 20 miles but I only did 8 1/2. (approx. 14 km out of 32km). I was dying the next day, and it was worse that my Dad was over on holiday and did all of it. My aim is to get fit enough that next year I can do it all, and not walk like John Wayne the next day!

    This thread is close to my heart Vinism. I train 5 days a week, (Mon-Fri), from 6.30am - 8.30am. I do a split weight routine and for the last three months, (and the foreseeable future), this is now followed by some cardio, stretching and a clean diet. I'm on an endorphin overload by the time I start work & sleep very well at night. I balance that weekly effort out with a hedonistic social life at weekends....

    I also have a 3 yr old Doberman pup that I take out for an hour everyday. I ride my bike and he runs alongside, but that's more about getting some fresh air and some "me & my dog" time than exercise. I'm considering starting some Yoga or Pilate's at some point too. I used to go boxing, but I quit that after a few injuries . Guess I wasn't meant to be the next Tyson after all, lol.

    More to the point; I definitely suffer from crazy bouts of insomnia and general bad health unless I train daily. Probably not the worst habit a person can have as long as you don't overtrain to exhaustion.

    I keep a set of dumbbells right here by my desk and am always working out a bit with them on and off during the day. Used to walk a lot, but now not often at all, but I still tinker round out in the yard or garden when able.

    I see that we have quite a few fit Guys & Dolls here......................

    Just inform those who don't already know here, I am a semi-pro triathlete and I have a pritty serious daily workout,but these days i do quality training rather than quanity that I used to do.

    I would not want to bore you all with a schedule which I try to follow,but i would advise to all to do some kind of exercise...........Healthy Body = Healthy Mind.

    That's one of the major plus's about being an affiliate manager, that I can plan my day around my exercise timetable..................

    Have a wonderful weekend to all and train smart......................

    I voted for No exercise because I forgot one exercise which I perform daily: (weight)lifting a mug containing a litre of Bavarian Beer

    I used to be a workout freak until I suffered a serious IT band injury. It took me a year's worth of rehab to recover. But now when I work out, I have to spend 20-30 minutes stretching before I even consider exercising. Otherwise, I will be in serious pain afterward. (This really puts a crimp on pick-up basketball!). So working out for me (even walking for 30 minutes), requires a nice time commitment from me. I'm starting to make it again, because I like my energy levels when I exercise, and I want to run some distance races next year. Right now, my workouts weights (upper and lower body) on M-W-F and serious cardio on T-Th-S. I also do light cardio on M-W-F to warm up.

    I stand corrected, who is really exercising 7+ hours a week...

    The poll is for how many hours a week, so 7+ basically boils down to an hour a day....

    I manage a couple of hours a week but really must do a little more. I find it difficult with having young kids in the house - when I'm not working I try to turn my attention to them as much as possible. (Maybe that should read - they make me turn my attention to them!)

    Anyway, this week I'm doing a little more and hoping to build it up from here.

    Back in my rowing days I was buff as, but that was likely because I used to train for 4 hours per day.

    Now not so buff... kinda embarrassing actually... I've started trying to go for more runs during the week but lately I've had too much on at lunch time...

    My usual week is spent:

    monday - 1 hour run/power walk
    tuesday - soccer
    wednesday - either a run or i try to go to the gym and do an hour cardio, but that hasnt happened lately
    thursday - volleyball
    friday - either take a day off or try to go for another run.

    Of course the only things i've managed lately are the run on monday, soccer and volleyball... i feel soooo lazy. I've put myself on a diet though.. no junk/take away and little to no alcohol. Lets see how long that lasts.
