    Re: Do you regularly work out?

    I cycle on and off strength training with cardio focused training every 6 weeks. I adjust my diet according to what my workouts are focused on. I eat "cleaner" during the cardio phase, which includes low-weight/hi rep weight lifting, and I usually eat more and less clean when I am working on building power/strength(high weight/low reps). Focused more on getting alot of animal protein and carbs in to fuel the muscle repair process. During cardio phases, I tend to try and get those thingsas well, but make a concious effort to limit sodium and fat intake.

    Re: Do you regularly work out?

    I do some form of excercise virtually every day. I have physical fitness equipment at my homes and switch stations every day. I have a daily stretching routine to maintain body manipulation. Dance class year round. In summer I engage in jogging, biking, swimming, blading, tennis, and sand/beach volleyball. During the winter months it's indoor volleyball, wall climbing, and kickboxing. I also hike sometimes.

They'd play for a bit, chat, and then go back to playing, and chat some more. It was just as much as a social bonding thing as a way to get exercise. I always thought that was so cool.

    Me, I have been playing for many years, and have just recently started taking it seriously once again. I used to play tournaments, but I only play a few select now days. There are many good juniors around here who hit the ball a ton, and play without fear. If I elected to compete in the same open tourneys, I'd so get my ass kicked. That would suck the interest for me-- so I avoid them--and keep tennis interesting and fun.

    The best thing about the game, though, is that there is always room for improvement. The game is complex, and even the #1 player in the world has weaknesses.
    I am a dangerously fast learner, I would hate to play with some other beginner, he couldn't teach me anything.. Playing with someone good would be emerressing at first, but eventually turn out far better. But I guess none of the good players at a tennis club want to swing with a rookie, thus my problem.

    Wow, pretty serious work-outer?

    I eat lots of rice, meat and massive amounts of salad and fruit and avoid refined sugar products and all soda drinks, but I do not mind eating fat.. Isn't fat good for you?

    I love different sauces for example.

    Yeah, me to(usually in evening), I find this essential alongside my 10 minute manipulation and warm up of every part of the body in the morning(using a lot of small muscles).

    Trying to get into more balance and coordination training.. I ought to take some dance classes of some sort, any suggestion?

    Re: Do you regularly work out?

    I detest the whole notion (for myself only, I have no strong opinion about the practice in others.)

    I hate doing work that serves little purpose. If I feel the need to exercise, I'd rather chop firewood, build something or perform some other kind of strenuous task.

    Nope, I'm a lazy bum. Playing online poker is just so much more fun (and hurts less) than doing push-ups or lifting weights.

    I would like to get into tennis and/or golf though. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who plays on a regular basis, and it's cold for 6 months out of the year here.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Well, for yourself, you will most likely live longer and have less health problems if you work out. isn't that a purpose?

    Well, if you're an outdoorsperson and live semi-indigenously and do a lot of rough, purposeful manual labor, you probably don't need to actually work out on top of that.

    I run 3-6 miles a day every weekday. Weekends are for drinking.
