    Talking Exercise

    Morning everybody - so what exercises do people do and when and where.

    Atm I cycle to work 3-4 times a week, roughly a 20-25 minute journey each way and have a vibration plate at home which I use first thing in the morning when I get up and immediately on arrival at home from work when my muscles are still burning from my bike ride

    I'm so envious of people who cycle, I'm a wimp, roads are scary and as a driver, I worry I'll annoy people like some annoy me!
    I have a routine of ;
    Monday; 20 mins cross trainer, 5 minues squat boxing
    Tuesday; 30 day shred
    Wednesday: 20 mins cross trainer, 5 minutes squat boxing
    Thursday: 30 day shred
    Friday: 20 mins cross trainer, 5 minutes squat boxing
    Saturday: Rest day
    Sunday: Evening run

    I'm also doing the 30 day squat, arm and ab challenges but they alternate days!

    Roads scare me too, I ride on the pavement but it is quite quiet when i set out as the two local schools have just gone in, also halfway through my journey I cycle through a park and then use a shortcut that has no traffic, its just the dog walkers that have to beware lol!
    I did the 30 day squat and ab challenge before xmas, it nearly killed me by about day 10 but I have to say that I did fit nicely into a dress for a wedding that I went to so the pain was a gain!!!
    Might try that again soon as was easy to fit into my mornings before leaving the house
    Wow Llamasoks, you really get the excercise in, respect!!!

    I live with quite rural roads, so not a lot of pavement and a lot of bendy country roads, that and I don't think I've even been on a bike in a few years! :P My youngest dog hates bikes, I always find myself apologizing to cyclists!

    I love the squat challenge, but think it's bulking me out a bit too much so trying to do more Cardio, it doesn't feel like I'm doing a lot, which is odd as it's more than I've ever done before!

    I usually do Combat and Pump classes which I love. Unfortunately I fell over a month ago and really hurt my ankle/foot. Went to the drs yesterday and they think its just ligament damage. havent done combat since anyway but have done some pump but the dr has told me not to until it stops hurting as it still puts weight on the ankle joint. So am gutted as I love Pump!

    I'm allowed to go on the weight machines at the gym where you sit down and just do upper body - whoop-de-doo! So am going to have to do that for the time being - if I can stand the boredom

    I might have to start the ab challenge

    I know it completely sucks having to cut it out when you're used to it, but I've made the mistake of carrying on when it hurt before and it makes it so much worse in the long run!
    Are you okay to walk/stand kind of weight? If so you could do some static boxing, good Cardio and slightly less boring than weights!

    I'm not really an exercise person, but I've got a buggy board on my pram and I push my 2 kids (aged 2 and 5) a mile to school every weekday on that. We are usually in a rush lol so I think it must be quite a good workout. Also, i've just started going to a zumba class once a week and I absolutely love it! It doesn't really feel like exercise because it's so much fun. I'm going to go twice a week as soon as i'm financially able. I would actually go every day if I could xx

    Emma_88 - Most def not sad - a few years ago before my youngest started school I used to go to classes on a Thursday and Friday and used to sooo look forward to them. I had originally started with a few friends but they all chickened out and in the end it was only me that went but enjoyed it a lot and eventually joined the womens gym part of it. Unfortunately the work thing and the fact the gym was knocked down to build flats threw a complete spanner in the works there and have never been able to find classes that fit in around everything so have do most exercise from home.

    It's great that you enjoy your classes Emma and congratulations on your great weight loss! I have a lot of weight to lose(aiming for 5 stone initially), at the moment I walk for an hour as many days of the week as I can, I have also started swimming again(hate the walk of shame to the pool!) but once I am in there I do 20 lengths, I'm trying to get up the courage to start a keep fit class as well...x

    I don't do any official exercise that can be labelled as such, but I do think my job helps. As a teacher I spend minimum 4 hours a day in lessons walking around a classroom. I have between 4 and 5 lessons to teach per day of 1 hour each, never sit down during a lesson and because of the layout of my classroom, spend a lot of time walking around it to assist pupils who need help. I also walk around during registration period and on break duties. Yes, I know it is a slowish amble with lots of stops when I am standing by a desk and chatting to pupils, but I do think it is far, far better than my old job which was a desk based office job.

    Does that count, do you think?
