    Re: Do you regularly work out?

    For many years I've exercised nearly every two days - when I was younger it was far more frequent and way more intense as I was in various competitions.

    I stopped exercising every day when I was about 31 as I stopped competing and just concentrated on keeping trim - however I dropped my road work from hard 120 miles a week to an intense 30 miles a week but my knees couldn't take all the road work anymore after my 41st birthday.

    Now, I've tended to do low impact cardio work in the gym but much more intense muscle building. As this is for me now I've allowed myself more muscle than was previously necessary. I've not done anything for about 5 months now since an illness wore me down so I've been on the web more.

    In the new year I'm allowed back in the gym so I won't be around here or other websites as much.

    Inline skating is a good alternative, if you're interested.
    It's almost exactly comparable to running, as far as the number of calories burned, but its virtually no-impact.
    I can't tolerate a lot of impact either, for one reason and another.

    Used to be a skateboarder as a kid so that sounds good. I've never skated before on roller skate type skates though so I'm a bit wary.

    Is it difficult? Sounds a great idea though......

    I don't mind at all, injury sucks though whatever your age. It takes a lot longer to recover when you're older and I enjoy the pace of life just as much even though it's different.

    In line skating...... am going to go look at skates and skate training courses now. Thanks for the idea!

    Me, too!

    No, but you might want to start on a smooth surface; concrete, as opposed to asphalt. Just until you get the hang of it.
    And never skate when it's wet. You won't find any traction on wet concrete; your feet will go out from under you and you'll fall right down.
    But no. It's not hard. It's a lot of fun.
    I make it as simple as I can for myself: no pads, no helmet. Just go.

    Yeah! Good luck. Let me know how it goes.

    Yes.

    Re: Do you regularly work out?

    Not nearly as often as I would like, but I still manage to work out several times a month. Soon as I'm working again and have some of my overdue bills paid off, I'm considering getting my gym membership back-- but I might try to get my boffer combat practice group meeting twice per week, and get myself a suit of armor so I can particpate in the local SCA's fighter practice.

    Since I couldn't keep up payments on my gym membership, and I've been working out in my friend's basement, my workouts lately have been ten minutes at a steady pace for warm-up, bench press until failure, and then hitting the heavy bag twice per second for two minutes or until I'm too tired to continue.

    My diet's crap, on account of I eat what I can when I can-- and that's neither good food nor every day. Plan on fixing that as soon as I'm working again, too. I've been dreaming about beans and rice, stir fry, and huge green salads for way too long already.

    I need to do a lot better, however I'm not overweight. I control my weight by just eating less sometimes, or doing without that little extra like desert or candy....

    Started out with all the Ballroom dances to get a good foundation, and for the last ten years I have concentrated solely on the Latin dances. I do some tap dancing to increase foot-speed, and ballet to magnify body manipulation.

    Dancing will definitely improve your strength, agility, balance, coordination, and bend-ability. It can also be the gateway to a greater sense of innovation, flair, and self-confidence.

    I love different sauces for example.

    Certain fats are good for you, just like certain carbs are good for you, and certain proteins are better for muscle building than others. With everything, its all about moderation.

    I hate when people go on Atkins diet, and sit there and eat a **** ton of bacon in the morning instead of a bowl of cereal. Cutting carbs does help you lose weight, but in the long run it is not a healthy lifestyle to remove carbs form your diet(especially at the cost of increased cholesterol/fat). Its more of a weight "cutting" technique, than a weight loss technique.
