    YUP, but moreso just cardio and running with a bit of arm weights every now and again! You really do feel good with it once you really get going with your commitments. -w-
    Do we do home gyms or gym memberships here?

    I've been into working out since I was 12. It started off as just cardio and eventually evolved into weight training as well. A bit after I started high school my stomach started acting up really badly (eventually got diagnosed with Crohn's), which ****ed up with my schedule. Everything from when I sleep, eat, and workout. However I'm working with it and made it my goal that even if I can't go to the gym to weight train, to atleast workout three times a week. Mostly doing pullups, pushups, and that sort of thing. I've been debating about whether I want to buy weights to workout at home with.

    Can't say I am really part of the fitness culture, but I am trying my best to exercise and eat healthy, and now I need some advice. I took up pilates relatively recently, but I am having trouble sticking with it. Anyone have suggestions? Also, does anyone know how to eat healthy on a college campus? It's so hard to do that even though I tend to avoid pizza and soda. Anyhoo, I plan to get a six pack since family has noticed I've put on some weight. (is that healthy to do for a woman? I really don't know.)

    Same here with me. I want to get more into weight lifting and all that, but I just got a gym membership a few weeks ago and go for cardio a few times a week. It does great for me too and I am looking forward to get more into it, just have to make that next step, you know?

    Pfff, don't make me laugh.

    Just kidding, I don't lift weights or train per se, but I play basketball, if that counts. It's exercise.

    The whole growth plate thing ? It's a myth. I your still growing do not put too much pressure on your spine with squats until your fully grown. Other than that jus be careful.

    Default Do you you even lift brah?!

    I don't think I ever seen a work out thread in here but I would love to see how people try to talk about how they stay in shape or what stuff they eat to stay in shape. For me, I'm not in good shape. 225 lbs and 5,6. If it was 4 years ago I would be 162 lbs and 5,6. I follow the APFT standard but it pretty low. 62 Push ups in 2 minutes, 53 sit ups in 2 minutes, and 32 minutes and 49 seconds in two miles. (29 minutes if I was trying. I'm a slow runner.) So yeeeah, not in the greatest shape.

    Anyway, how about you guys?

    Firsty I wanna say that this is going to be a nice thread! Subscribed.

    I'm 5"2 and I weigh 60 kg... Thats around 130 or 140 lbs I guess... I live in Europe so I wouldn't really know.
    I used to visit the gym to do cardio but then, I realized that cardio would slim me down and that is not really my goal. I have been gaining weight since going through puberty and luckily all of the fat I gained got to "the right places"... Like, I didn't get a fat stomach or anything like that, I got this instant "hourglass" shape, and I'd lose it if I would keep doing cardio. So now I'm working on some of my muscles to get them more toned
    Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday I do: 3x 25 lunges & 4x 15 lunges, 2x 10 sit ups and 2x 8 push ups. It's not that much but this is all i need. Also, after this, I do yoga. (I actually do yoga everyday.)

    To keep my weight at 60 kg I just drink lots of water. Water really helps if you want to lose weight... Atleast, for me it did/does.

    Thanks buddy. Planning to hit the gym tonight. Need to do lots of cardio. Although the gym is good, hitting the pavement would show some result to see how far you can run within the surround natural environment. My environment is quite hot so I sweat like a hell of a lot.. (South part of the U.S) I go to the gym, but man I get lazy. Need motivation.

    So I found out that pilates alone doesn't burn fat, I need to do cardio as well. Started doing about 5 minutes of somewhat intense cardio before I eat. I hope this is sufficient. I can't go very long due to asthma.

    Buddy of mine have asthma too. He usually just remain inside the gym and get on one of them bike or one of them machine that move his leg for him. It better to hit the pavement and start running though since it show better result.

    Not really into the whole fitness/exercise thing, but I would kinda like to start eating better and whatnot. I'm starting by cutting soda out of my diet and only having it when I go out somewhere. Been drinking more tea, water, and lemonade lately, and I'm going to try making my own flavored water this summer. ;3 I might try and pick up some more fitness-y stuff when I transfer to my new school in the fall since there's a gym on campus (and my tuition pays for it lol), so I might try and do some more Zumba stuff if it fits in my schedule. That's probably the only fitness-y thing I've really enjoyed; I took it for my PE elective credit at community college in the summer of 2013, and I really enjoyed it.

    I prefer going to the gym with friends, and I don't really have anyone I'm super close with that would be interested in doing that with me, plus gym memberships are expensive, haha. I'd rather just do stuff on my own time, walk farther to get to places since it's getting close to summer now and therefore it's warmer outside, so I don't have to wear a hundred layers to stay warm.

    Did a 10 miles run. Worse idea in my life. Good part is I drop weight pretty well.

    Teddy Rosevelt had asthma and he took up every sport possible to prevent flare ups and help fight the problem. I recommend having a fast acting inhaler while you start your workout but after a month or so you should notice a difference. I battle asthma also so I must run for a few weeks ahead of starting a weightlifting program so my body can actually work long enough to build muscle.

    Just sharing my knowledge not insisting you change anything. Tea also has a natural caffeine that robs your red blood cells of oxygen close to the same as soda and coffee. But tea is a lot less potent so it is a trend in the right direction.

    Hey man I'm definitely into the lifting lifestyle! Been working from scratch (Couldn't do a squat, can now do 200+ lbs), but I've taken a month off because I moved countries. My lower back is sore like all of the time so that's been deterring me too. Any tips on healing the lower back? Would like to get back to doing deadlifts but not gonna push it with my back as it is.

    I don't work out so the thread question "do you even lift" is a nah but it's funny because i know people who lift but have less muscle than me.

    Massage. Definitely a massage. Or if you in some country that do a lil bit of boom boom, you might wanna go to a boom boom massage parlor. But if you're too cheap for that, I suggest laying down and do absolutely nothing for like 3 days straight and drink monsters.
