How Often Do You Workout?

So the new exercise guidelines, put out by American College of Sports Medicine and American Heart Association are pretty intense. It is recommended that adults get 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at moderate intensity everyday. In light of this, I am wondering...

I am one of the "other"; I work out everyday...if I don't, I feel sluggish and I gain weight just looking at food. I do yoga (on video and at studios), pilates, TaeBo, Weight Training, Treadmill, etc. I have worked out a detailed monthly schedule for myself. I also walk my dogs 30 minutes a day. If I don't, they bug me incessantly until we go out.

I am currently trying to get back to 6 days a week after relocating to a new city. I usually do pretty much all my working out at the gym, but am trying to do more outside and become more flexible with my workouts.

Literally, I hike on the weekends. That's funny that that's an option. :) I'm so bad about working out.

I am just now FINALLY getting back into my groove at the gym after the craziness of last semester, and now school starts up again next week! Gaa.

I tend to work out 5 or 6 days a week, but I don't do anything too strenuous. Lots of yoga, walking, dancing, and some weight training. I'm in law school, so I don't have much time, but I've found that taking 20 minutes in the morning or evening for some basic yoga has kept me feeling pretty healthy, in spite of having to sit for 12-15 hours a day studying.

I walk my dogs every day for about 20 minutes after work each day- It is really hilly where I live, so it can be pretty intense. I need to start doing more though.

I practice Bikram yoga (it's a 90 minute class) about 5 - 7 days each week. I used to think I didn't have time to work out, but then I FINALLY found a workout I love, and realized that by working out, I was more efficient when it came time to do everything else.

I do cardio six days per week (hip hop aerobics, TurboJam/Kick, and spinning). I do strength training three days a week (just returned to this thanks to an article in Women's Health-probably the same one brown eyed grrl referenced...I love Women's health, btw!). And I teach yoga three times per week. However, I love to eat good food so I feel like I have to workout this much...plus if I go for too many days without I don't feel as good.

I do cardio about 5 to 6 days a week and yoga or pilates 3 x a week. I mix up the cardio - treadmill or bike. Planning to add a new class in about a month, but can't decide which. Maybe cycling. I do strength training for arms twice a week and some form of ab exercises four x per week. I absolutely have 1 or 2 days when I don't work out! The recovery time is important.

I workout 3 to 4 days a week. I used to go hiking during the weekends. I need to start doing that once again.

Thanx Brown Eyed grrl...Its really cool how youre helping yourself and your mom at the same time. Thing is, for me, my friends always say they wanna work out but somehow I can never find them when the time comes...hmmm. But, I guess its a matter of staying committed no matter how the day goes. I think working out early in the day might help too. This is the longest Ive ever stuck to working out though...I just wanna step it up without completely giving up(I tend to do that when I feel frustrated). Btw, your office is awesome for having yoga lunches...

i try to go every day, but it can get kind of hard during the school year, especially this fall when i'm taking 20 credit hours and applying to law school. hopefully i'll be able to keep going regularly.

I classify as an "other". Well I work out 6 days a week (not sundays, relaxation day). Yoga, some-some Pilates, 75 sit ups per day, jog around Foster City (nice place to run around where I live), and stairs for 15 minutes. I'm trying to get my self to be in the best shape for hockey season! I haven't played in almost 3 years because of my injury.

lkandy, For me, it was something I built up to doing. I started working out just a few times each week. If I had started off doing what I do now, I would have never stuck with it. Find something you like to do or want to learn that's also a good workout, it really helps. Also, if you can find someone to workout with at least some of the time, that is a great motivator. My office does yoga during lunch on Friday, so I always have co-workers to get me to go (yoga is very slow and hard for my ADD personality to stick with). Also, my mom needed to lose some weight because she had some test results that showed she was at risk for diabetes, so I work out with her to make sure she does it, and that's a huge motivator. If I choose to slack, she will, too, and I really don't want that. Your partner can be anyone--friend, relative, co-worker, whoever. When I was heavy into martial arts and boxing, my classmates became good friends, and we gave each other hell for slacking off. Just my two cents!
