Default OT: Workout Thread

Another OT thread that I think could help or help share some good info on here. The workout/exercise thread.

I know there are a number of people who do MMA/Martial Arts/Run/train etc on here. I have recently started a new program myself with great results and curious what works for others or what others enjoy.

I am going to CrossFit which is a terrific program(s) that suit what I am looking for in a workout/get fit program. www.crossfit.com for more info.

Currently I am just using their exercises through demo's on their website but once my current gym membership expires I will join their program (which also does Krav Maga classes).

On to others, what works for you? I know HappyDays could supply some good info here and if there are any Kines' students, physio's etc I'd love to hear their opinions on various programs.

used to work out a ton while in school (baseball scholarship)....5AM workouts 5 days a week,then practice 6 days a week, run everyday etc.....kinda got burned out on exercising so i let myself go when i finished school....

went back to running and the gym for a while a few months ago, went hard, then got too busy at work..now i'm all fat and lazy again....

but i'm starting to get more active lately....although the gym/running bores me so I've been all about hiking lately...so many incredible trails around here....hike for 6 hours, get a great workout and actually appreciate where we live....

some of my favorite hikes:

elk thurston:
http://www.clubtread.com/Routes/Route.aspx?Route=85

just outside of chilliwack, do the Elk summit after work (get to trailhead around 6, back to truck by 10 right as its starting to get dark....) keep going to thurston if u have the time...well worth it....wild strawberries and stuff...bangin...

mount cheam:
http://www.clubtread.com/Routes/Route.aspx?Route=73

amazing view...still too much snow to do it now without at least some crampons....tried last thursday, didn't make it to the summit, tooo slippery and hard to find the trail...wait till mid-august


Mount Slesse (Memorial Trail):
http://www.clubtread.com/Routes/Route.aspx?Route=69

really cool hike...there was a plane crash way back when...you can find pieces of the plane all over the place...a lot of fun to explore...


but yeah....lots of awesome hikes, awesome views, but watch out for bears.....i've seen a couple this year already....i'd invest in some bear scares....

I just do a different body part each day with saturday and sunday off.
But I add 1 minute of skipping after every 2 exercises:
eg. Bench Press to Dumbbell flies to 1 minute of skipping then rest
for maybe 10 seconds.(3-4 rounds of that) Then to the next 2 exercises.
Total of 6 different exercises.
It keeps the heart rate up and keeps you burning fat constantly.

The hardest part for me is the kitchen work. So tough not to snack in
the evenings.

Depends on what you want to get out of your workouts. I did the whole varsity team workout thing which got me into power lifting and lifting 5 times a week. But now I lift 3 times a week and throw in a lot of sports cardio.

Good call on the hikes Jeff. I've been looking for hikes out in chilliwack that are between short and super long. I'll have to try that elk thurston one.

i love elk-thurston.....its short (if i dont have a lot of time i make it to the elk summit in about an hour and a half)...then run down (easier than walking)...and usually hang out at the top for quite a while and enjoy the view....

tons of hikes in that area....check out the rest on that site (clubtread.com)

Well, I start off with a 15 mile jog, uphill... both ways. Then I sprint 200m intervals for warm up. As a workout, I bench 600lbs... then I curl 500lbs...... I do mostly upper body.. but sometimes I leg press like 1200lbs... nothing big.. you know

I'm being sarcastic btw

I just go to the gym with my brother and do what he does keeps me in shape with all the eating I do at culinary school.... plus I do martial arts

Sweat boxing it up there I see. I don't really work out as well I'm usually drained by the sun as I work outside.

Last year was really fun losing like 5-10lbs of water just standing in the sun let alone working in it. Did get pretty strong and well conditioned though.

Mountain or rock climbing is an awesome workout.

I used to go work out every 2nd day..wknds or not. But my diet just wasn't working and my gains over the years was only 40lbs. No matter how hard I tried, stuffing my face just didn't work. None of those stupid "see-food diets" or "bulk now, trim later" worked. So I completely changed everything. Worked major groups only, (chest, shoulders, back, legs). I cycle 25 mins at the start for cardio (not including warm up/cool down) and then I added squats and deadlifts. I then focused on hockey related workouts. My goals ended up being stronger, and not necessarily bulking, and it seemed to have worked. It has also helped me being a lot stronger on my skates.

I also did a few strength and conditioning programs at Golds Gym (those are absolutely killer!) and a few cardio programs. I somewhat surprised the trainer(since I'm not very big) and he kicked it up a notch and that's when I was done!

yup..its hard..especially if you try to keep up with Tony Horton. I got a copy and ended up burning it for my buddy who use to play Jr B hockey and even he said it was tough. Don't know how much physical activity you do, but my advice is to pace yourself, otherwise you'll be done before he even starts the real workout! I tried to keep up but i died halfway through. Also got to stick the to diet program, since it plays a big part

An example of my current workout would be a 30 minute run at 155-160 BPM's, rest for two minutes then 15 x squat (no weight), 10 x pushup, 5 x chinups, I do as many sets of those three as I can do in 20 minutes.

Although im not big on MMA I do spend roughly 12-15 hours / week at the gym.

Mainly there to gain as I keep my cardio up by other means.
Ive just started one of Arnolds classic work outs lol Its pretty intense but I have already noticed reasonable gains in 2+ weeks.
My work out partner ( no homo ) is doing the same routine but just did a cycle of winny
He has agained 15+ pounds in 3 weeks - arsholes have it so easy
