Anyone been hitting the gym lately? Any type of work out thats been effective?
I've been pretty good, 3 times during week and Sunday. Here's my club:
Because of arthritis, I stick with lap swimming. Now up to .75 mile per visit.
played soccer from the age of 10 to 40.......taking a break
I go to the Y. I try to do two rounds of the Nautilus type machines (12-15 reps each) and run one mile on the indoor track. I'm lucky if I get there twice/ week. It's getting rid of my ass to thigh fold.
I hit my garage. All that cute, chorome plated stuff isn't my bag. I started lifting before it became en vogue, when people thought it made you dumb and the football coach ahd a stroke.
I lift six days a week. I run 3 miles 6 days a week. I practice martial arts 6 days a week as well. Total time per workout -- 1 1/2 hours.
I change up my weightlifting every now again so that it doesn't get stale, but mostly lift heavy weights, and the martial arts is easy because there are plenty of different things you can do. Running is running -- a means to an end.
Been pretty effective for me. I've been doing the same for over 20 years now.
You're an ironman Gunny!
My membership at the Y is part of my spouse's compensation package, and its a new one, only about 2 miles down the road, zero traffic. Besides, my garage id full of power tools and building supplies for my next project.
Man i would love to do all that. What style martial arts do you do?
I've heard it called a LOT worse.
I must not have had enough sleep last night. You lost me here.
