When it Comes to Working Out, What's Your Favorite?


Exercising is good for our bodies and minds - there's no debate about that. Cardio, strength training, and stretching are 3 things we should all be doing to work our whole bodies, and I'm sure one is easier and more enjoyable for you than the others. What I want to know is...

Cardio. But strength training is very close by.

yoga is more fun, but sadly it's not going to make me lose weight so i chose cardio.

Stretching is obviously an integral part of yoga practice; however, I use more quad and hamstring effort sustaining a low chair pose for a prolonged period than I do with leg presses on a machine. I also know that since I've been attending yoga class twice per week, as well as maintaining a home practice, I have better muscle definition than I've achieved previously with either free weights or machines. So, yoga is my favorite! Now, does that count as strength training, or stretching? Cardio is an unavoidable necessity, and I do it three times per week, but I can't say that I enjoy it.

I try to combine them all in my workout but prefer strength training, it's the most comfortable for me. "There's a difference between staying alive and living."

Definitely strength training. I love feeling that burn in your muscles. I loathe cardio - its so boring. I'm always like "Man, I've only done 10 minutes? it felt like an hour!"

Ashtanga Yoga combines all three - I love them all!
Cardio!!! the spinning is great, two years ago i was a teacher of spinning in a Gym, certificated by Pin Reebok, and it was a great experience, so i know it works, it burns the calories, wow!

ah..i just can't get into the cardio. love the strength training, though. it feels great to isolate the burn, and then the results are addicting.

My favorite is strength training/weight lifting, because I start seeing results in about a month and it makes me feel healthy and strong.

i really love all three [in my daily routine i run, lift some and then do some yoga] - but yoga just feels like it's a part of me. mmm delicous stretching.
