  1. What type of exercising are you guys doing, and what are your goals? Today my goal is to do 25 push-ups.
  2. 25 push ups well done ! If you do the 25 push ups for 3 days, then rest one day, I reckon the next day you will be able to do 26 push ups. I get good muscle exercise at work but the older I get the more important it is to get the heart rate up imo.

  3. Yes! It's always good to get the heart rate going. You get to workout at work? That's awesome.
  4. I abseil a lot and have to lift and lower heavy things ( like myself :D ). I think office workers need to do more home exercise.

  5. Haha yes they do.
  6. I don´t like exercising but as I am office worker, I have to do something. I walk over 10 km (6,5 miles) every day.

  7. I think brisk walking is much less stressful on the joints than running and very good for the heart. Brisk walking in the bush/forest is also very good for the mind. imo

  8. Nice! How long does it take you to complete?
  9. When I run I try to do it in the wilderness and have a good pair of shoes on, then its not as bad on the joints. :)
  10. Maybe that's my problem cheap shoes :D I hate paying a lot for shoes :/

  11. Usually I walk 5 km per hour. I walk three times a day with my dog and I walk to the office as well so the sum of 10 km is divided in these walks. I try to do all my dog-walks in forests and I like to use barefoot shoes (I didn´t like their cost when I bought them).

  12. I used to run about 3 miles almost every day, but as the weather got really humid this summer, I slipped out of that. It's now getting nice and cool, so I should get back into that.

    I just picked up swimming again recently and I swim about 2000 yards (I used to swim competitively and competed against Michael Phelps each year since I was 13--we're both originally from Baltimore).

    My goal is to run 4 miles and swim 2 miles again.

    Also I do 50 push-ups, 50 sit-ups, and 10 burpees every morning.

  13. Yep. I don't have the best quality running shoes and it isn't the best on my joints. That's partly why I prefer swimming -- no impact on my joints.

  14. You competed against Michael phelps? Did you ever beat him?
  15. I do hundreds of pull-ups every day - fork to plate, lift to mouth, repeat :sneaky:

  16. Haha, I don't think anyone did. Even when he was 14 or 15, he was sort of a local celebrity in the Maryland swimming community. Most of the time, swimmers are more interested in beating their own times.

  17. Wow, thats interesting that you competed against him.
  18. Today I surfed, walked the dog, did a few push-ups, played the guitar, and went for a bike ride. Of course, other than the push-ups, I don't consider any of that exercise, just life! That's also the reason I don't understand gyms.

  19. I've heard that barefoot or minimalist footwear is better on the joints due to the naturally modified mechanics of the stride and foot strike. Then again, I stopped running when I stopped doing things to make the cops chase me.

  20. I've heard that too. There has been far less tension on the joints when running barefoot.
