The Guy's Gym

okay, the girls have their thread ("The Diminishing Divas") and I'm sure all the guys have given it respect and not posted in it.

this is a similar thread but for males. now, i am truly serious about this - this is not a mickey taking thing on the women's thread.

now i've got that out of the way......




i gave up smoking about three and a half weeks ago. i am now wanting to start some excercise routine. i used to do a lot of sport such as soccer and squash as well as judo and boxing (briefly and years ago). these days i don't do anything other than maybe walk.

any of you guys recommend some excercises to do on a daily basis. please keep it clean, i know you're all itching to come out with the obvious - i beat you to it. i'm just wanting to get fit, not loose weight, i feel i'm the right weight for my height. i do feel very unfit though.

anyway, i'll leave it at that for the now.

I just got into running again and it makes you feel so much better. Sometimes the first mile or so is hell but once you get going, it really lifts the spirits. I am planning on running a 10 mile run in early October, so I should have plenty of time to attain that. I am currently going about 3 1/2 miles before I have to walk for a few minutes.

Though, if you don't want to lose weight, you may want to do some lifting as well so that you don't just get skinny from running. I would still recommend running though as weight lifting does not give the same cardiovascular benefits.

i'm definately going to be doing the running. that's something else i used to do and is much easier to pick up on again of course than the other sporting activities.

weightlifting i'll probably certainly avoid since i really don't want to be in a gym, stuck between Hulk Hogan and Vin Diesel. I'd also feel a little embarassed going to buy weights for home....plus there's no real room for a proper weight-training bench in my flat:



lol, i know that's a kid's one, just thought it would be funny after finding it when Googling for weight-training benches.


i'd be interested to know of exercise routines such as squats, sit ups and push ups. if you know of any good web-sites that can recommend an exercise programme to follow

c'mon girls - us guys have left your threads alone! i.e. " the diminishing divas"

seriously, that's pretty annoying.

thanks girls for probably killing what was shaping out to be a mature talk between adult men about our fitness.


edited to say that the sentence above is 'sarcastic' in response to Dave's posting below.
