    What’s your exercise\workout routine like?

    This question assumes you do participate in some structured exercise programme done at least 3 times a week.

    Fist of all I don't go to any gym, I workout in the mornings at home.
    My daily exercise routine mostly consists of strength exercises i.e weight lifting.
    Typically I start out with a 5 min. warm up then move into some form of cardio such as speed skating, jumping jacks, skipping, jugging etc. for 10-15 minutes.
    The strength segment typically start out with abdominal work - crunches, oblique crunches, hanging leg rise, then the chest for bench presses, push ups and dumb bell flies.
    Triceps and biceps work consist of traditional curls, hammer curls and tricep dips.
    For the rest of the week I focus on the other areas such as back, shoulders, hams\quads calves etc. with a variety of exercises, I try to mix it up to retain interest.

    Sundays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays would be off days for recovery purposes.

    As of late however, I find that I work out mostly with Cathy or Gilad on Fit TV in the mornings. I really enjoy working out with Cathy especially when she focuses of weights such as her “slow and heavy” series or booth camp style routines.

    Since the past few months I find that I'm no longer in the mood to exercise, I’m lacking stamina, and to make things worst I feel very hungry at nights for junk food. So I end up eating and thus sabotaging myself.

    So what's your routine like, how do you remain motivated, handle your craving and what over the counter pills or supplement do you take to build up your stamina?

    A 20 minute walk to the bus stop. Do that everyday, twice a day. It works magic.

    Thumbs up Re: What’s your exercise\workout routine like?

    Bowflex™ 3 times a week at 5:00 am for the win! Work campus is big enough that I do roughly 2 miles worth of walking every day. Sweet? I think so! Only drawback? I'm so tired in the eves, that I can no longer do finger exercise and I'm out like a light (or tired enough to be) by 9:30 pm. My eyelids are so overweight. When am I going to get to the part where Tony Stark becomes a rogue Government agent? Civil War for the win!

    Well, during the semester I walk fifteen minutes to and from Liguanea about six days a week. So half an hour of walking not all that bad. Plus walking up and down on campus. But since school is out, my exercise regime looks a bit like this:
    Sundays - Clean
    Mondays - Sleep
    Tuesdays - Sleep
    Wednesdays - Sleep/Party
    Thursdays - Sleep/Party
    Fridays - Party
    Saturdays - Sleep/Party

    So I figure that 3 or 4 hours of jumping up and down almost every night should be enough to get the summer body going. If not, I sleep for most of the day so I don't eat much anyway.
    Dear God,
    Please help all the gay/chinese/poor/jewish/mormon/boring/overly religious/Seventh Day Adventists/over users of the phrase 'aye caramba '/pedophiles

    Best regards,
    ME.
