I want to know what your work out routine is, what's your fitness level, are you a serious gym guy/girl or only go on Mondays to burn off what you drank over the weekend?
For myself I'm a serious fitness freak. I've been training since I was in grade 10 and I'm 35 years old now. Growing up I was never into playing video games. The gym was/is my playstation. I've always had a punching bag and weights in my garage. I've done some MMA training with a friend who is a fighter.
I posted my current workout routine in another thread but felt this topic needs its own thread as there are many members here who have interest in this subject.
This is my curent traing routine.
Right now I'm not doing a regular 1 or 2 body parts per day weight lifting routine followed with some cardio. I work out with a professional athelete so we do a lot more challenging stuff.
It takes us between 2 to 2.5 hours to complete the workout. This includes 30 + mins of warmup, 1+ hour of weights and 20 mins of post work out cardio followed by 10 to 15 mins of stretching.
For weights we do a free weight circuit routine. We set up 8 stations which include clean and press, body weight pull ups, burpees, lunges, squats , etc etc. We usually use two 45 plates on stadard bar for most excercises. We go thru all 8 excercises and rest for approx 2 to 3 mins. Then repeat for 6 to 7 sets depending on how we feel. After this we do some clean up exercises such as forearms and calves on some days and bis and tris on others. We also throw in some shrugs and abs a couple of times a week.
We have two routines. So we do routine 1 on Mon and Thurs and routine 2 on Tues and Friday to keep things fun. Pull ups are done every day. On Wednesdays we do major body parts (chest, shoulders, legs, back) power lifting routine to keep the strength up. We don't keep things too strict as far as the routine is concerned, we change things up and add or delete excercises to keep thing fun.
Three times a week we go for a run or stair climbing in the evenings.
My workouts are extremely challenging but its a lot of fun.
Now that summer is here I'll have my bike insured soon, I'll be going to do the Grouse grind on the week ends. Hopefully I can get out there atleast once per week. When I do this I'll cut out one of the evening cardio sessions.
