I want to work out. But I almost didn't do sports in the last couple of years for various reasons.

I can and want to workout again, and I'm cycling to work everyday. I usually gain and lose muscle/fat easily (easy yo-yo), but boy, I tried working out last week, and this time the break was way too long and my body is in a pretty bad state, it was way too hard!

Well, with the cycling, a better nutrition and a bit of light workout, I should be able to improve slowly and get back into shape. I'll try to find a sport to do too, I always prefer that to just working out... It's going to be long and difficult anyway.

I like the feeling of being in shape, so yes I do. Even if strength and endurance has no direct impact on my life, it is an essential part of who I am to train.

On and off gym goer for years but getting back into 5x5 3-4 times a week. Bulky with a gut, I love chocolate and beer too much haha



7 minute workout and perfect abs. People want quick results and are lazy to put in the work. The wrong genetics make it hard to gain muscle or lose weight. When we go beyond a certain age 35 or 40 it becomes harder to recover from the work outs and harder to gain muscle and it is more difficult to lose weight as metabolism slows down with ageing.

For the past three years I have began taking exercise more seriously. I was always an active kid that was involved in sports, so I never had to worry about my weight, and was just naturally skinny.

Nowadays, if I don't diet or exercise, I tend to hover around 215 or 220 pounds (I'm 6'1 or 6'2), which is a bit overweight. As of right now, I'm 185 pounds, and I try to go to the gym everyday, and I go swimming a few times a week, as weather permits. I spend 40 minutes on the treadmill with a 12 pound dumbbell in each hand, walking at a brisk 3.8 mph with a 6.0 incline. I also go on a walk with my wife and daughter a few times a week.

I tend to gain weight during the winter as I spend more time inside. Actually, two years ago I had an unfortunate injury which occurred while at the gym. I must have over-did it, and I ended up hurting my stomach while doing sit-ups. No joke, I was shitting blood.

If 220 pounds is overweight, I wonder what my 227 are :p

depend on what % is muscle or fat, also height and body type plus muscle increases weight.

I used to do regular training with weights, machines and cardio equipment but after 6-7 years, I grew bored of it and had no motivation anymore. That's when I switched gym and started doing Cross-fit classes and Hot Power Core yoga classes and I love it sooo much! Every day is a different work out and being in a structured setting means there's no time for slacking off and I really get the most of the 60-75 minutes I'm working out.

It's been two years of that now and the results are there too! I'm still very lean (I'm an ectomorph) but much more defined than I used to be and I feel really great.



Signature goes here!

I'm 45 and definitely notice the recovery slowdown. Injuries are easier to get, cramping muscles, and recovery from a bicycle accident takes months now. The scar on my knee from 2 years ago is still clearly visible.

Stopping altogether is no good either, but slowing down a bit is a good idea I think. Work out to keep endurance up instead of focusing on raw strength. It is annoying though that joints start hurting much sooner while jogging and even cycling.



Distance running and cycling requires consistent training of 4 to 5+ days per week to build and maintain aerobic fitness. Taking time off to allow body to recover and starting off from a lower fitness level and it is hard to get back to previous performance level of past. Set new realistic goals and do not get to worried about of not obtaining

I now have chronic pain in my neck, arm and shoulder from spending too much on my laptop looking down and well trying to lift weights at the gym does not make things better. Just do some shoulder pressed or some of the other stuff and it was painful and comical too watch. I do not bother with gym and just cycle my bike or jog for fitness.

I need to be more active get out more and run/cycle more miles. Quit the excuses and just work harder and gradually improve my fitness. I may not be able to run the times I used to in the past but I should just stress less and live in the moment.

What? No it doesn't. I ran over 15 kilometres last weekend after not really running at all in about 6 months.
