The new workout plan

Just curious what everyone's workout regimen is.

Summer's coming up so it's time to stop being a fatty for me and get nice and tight.

We have a really nice workout facility here at my university so I try to take advantage of it. I work out either 4 or 5 days a week by running two miles on the indoor track, doing ab work, cooling down on the bike machines, and ending with 15 minutes on an elliptical.

Well, what do you do?

my workout plan consists of me trying to convince myself that campus is big enough and i do enough walking to make up for the total lack of inactivity in my spare time.

I was the same way, and since this campus was built on the side of a mountain more or less, I thought I was doing a good job of it. Then I ballooned up to around 168 last semester.

But now I'm back down to about 152-154 each day and feeling good. Finally seeing a bit of definition and just really feeling a lot more healthy when I wake up each morning.

oh, i know it's not actually helping. i'm a fatass now. i lost about 15 pounds as a freshman (reverse freshmen 15!), but then i stopped playing sports, started eating meat again, and it's been all downhill from there. i gained back the weight, plus about 15-20 more pounds.

first step: find the university gym.

slight exaggeration, i know where it is. but it's literally on the other side of campus, and i'd probably walk over there and think if i walk back, that's enough exersize, i don't really need to go work out.

I'm feeling inspired to start up some kind of a workout because I've been so lethargic lately I'll use my university's facility, although it is not "really nice" as you say yours is. The pool is grand though. I'll probably start by running 1 mile maybe 2 on the indoor track. Anything more will depend on how the run goes.

Our university gym is rather detached from campus, there are shuttles that take you to/from.

I run every day that I possibly can it averages out to 5 days a week and I weight train at least 6 days a week though it's better called resistance training because the weights are light

a little yoga at the end of each workout

right now I'm eating cadbury mini eggs though

I do Tae Bo 3 times a week. One day I work out with the resistance bands for an hour. Than the next time I use weight balls w/a workout for an hour. The 3rd day is no weights but typically a flex or ab workout. Have lost weight and am shaping and toning up nicely from my regimen.

You could do some weight work for your arms. Excercise bike is good, but if you want an even better work out, that eliptical is a beast.

I've been sneaking into my college's weight room lately...even though I graduated 2 years ago. But now I officially lost my ID so I can't get in anymore.

45 - 60 minutes on the elliptical every night. Sometimes followed by 100-300 ab reps. Walking to and from school/work.

I prefer to bike 20 miles (outside, not stationary), but in Michigan you can only do that 5 months of the year.

Well, you and Chizzers have inspired me. When I get back down here after spring break I'm going to throw weight training into the mix. Most of the time I guess I'm just initimidated by all the completely huge fellas in the weight room. The last time I was in there I had a pretty rough time lifting what they would warm up with.

I'm not really intimidated, I just never got into weights. I guess now's the time
