The 58% of people who voted for daily exercise or 3-4 days a week, what do you do for exercise? Is it run, gym, home workout or anything else. Please share your workout regimen/program and the time you prefer for that.

Earlier I used to do home workout for which I bought 2 pairs of dumbles and a barbell. 

But now I go to gym because it is difficult to be consistent at home. Moreover, I get ample amount of motivation in gym when I see people working out.

A month ago, my exercise schedule included 3-4 kms of running in like 20-25 minutes, then another 3-4 kms of walking, then push-ups and sit-ups and finally 1-1.5 hours  of football/soccer play. ( all done between 4:30 am to 7/7:30 am).


Now, it includes  2 hours of workout at gym as gyms are open now. 


Workout session of 2 hours involves first 20-25 minutes of warmup including stretching, cycling, pull-ups and push-ups, followed by 1 hour of body part exercise including 5-6 exercises of the dedicated  body part, 3-4 sets of 20/18/15/12 reps, and finally concluded by another half n hour of cardio exercise like cross training machine , abdomen exercise to strengthen core like crunches, leg raises, side raises, etc etc.


Workout pattern:-


Monday- Chest 

Tuesday- Back

Wednesday-Shoulders

Thursday- biceps

Friday-triceps

Saturday- legs and thighs

Sunday- rest day


I go to gym either around 4 or 7:30 in the evening. As now the gym is being closed at 10pm, from Monday I’ll be going from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm most probably. Also, I’m thinking of going for a 5km run at least 3-4 days in a week in morning at 4:30 am. Hopefully, Kal se I’ll restart my running along with evening gym session.

@TheNotoriousNow this is what we call working out like crazy!
How do you manage to be awake throughout the day post this workout? I find myself taking a 2 hours long nap the days I walk for more than an hour :P

@TabsAndChords  

hahaha!

last to last Saturday, I fucked up my legs too. I was doing legs after a long gap, and in josh josh, I lifted more than I was supposed to while doing leg curls and this seriously messed up my hamstrings of both the legs, so much so that I wasn’t able to stand properly for 2 days.  Now I’m cautious too while doing legs.

@chamomile thanks bhai. And the day-time nap wasn’t an issue for me because my schedule at that time was quite opposite when compared to an ideal one.  I used to stay up all night, then go out for running, exercise and football, then sleep during the day time(8-9 hours). Plus, a few cups of black coffee helped too.

Home work out (yoga/SnC/dance depending on mood). Occasional walks to nearby park to watch the rising sun. It's a visual treat

High-five fellow sunrise lover! Sunrise and the early rays make every day and the landscapes look so beautiful.

This seems like a good place to ask so imma go ahead - to all the runners, which is the best app to track speed, distance, time etc for running/walking.


I'm not a fan of fitness bands since they're inaccurate and I can't afford the high-end ones. It looks like I might clear State Forest Service cutoff so need to be ready to clear the mandatory 25-km-in-4-hours test.


I've let myself go a bit in the past year so I'm in a bad shape but this seems like a good opportunity to get myself fit and back in shape. Also any tips on running are welcome. 


TIA.

@dwightschrute strava is probably the best. You can also use the Nike or Adidas apps.

I've been using google fit for a while. Tracks accurately if GPS is on. Although the downside being google gathering too much of your data.

I’ve used both Nike and strava. Nike is a really good beginners app, considering that you don’t need to get really fancy with cadence tracking and stuff. You get all the basics with Nike Run as well, plus if you do use the Nike training app (which has additional strength exercises and stuff, which I highly recommend if you want no-equipment stuff) it makes for a really nice workout routine. As for tips with running, start slow and small, especially if you’ve been sitting for a really long time. Sitting weakens your glutes and hamstrings a lot, both of which are really useful while running to avoid shock injury. I’ve injured both my knees, shins and Achilles’ tendons and been laid up for 4 months, so please start slow, work on exercising these muscles in tandem with running. Walking is also a great cross training exercise for running.

@dwightschrute Relive is decent. M not a runner (get cold runny nose if I run in the morning chill). But my social media status is full of family/friends who use relive like :point_down::point_down: ...it gives a nice visual of path taken + speed + elevation etc.
