Currently I'm doing Body for Life. Nothing crazy in this program or fad dieting. Just small balanced low fat meals 5 to 6 times a day along with workouts. Workouts are 3 days of cardio and 3 days of weight training. You can read more about it here.

http://www.bodyforlife.com/

I've also read the Fitness for Divers book and use their stretching routine.

Well, I currently have more bodyfat on me than I care for. So my routine is based solely on getting rid of that. I eat a very light breakfast of fruit or yogurt, a small lunch (usually a Lean Cuisine or the like) and then a small dinner. If we go out to eat, I only eat half my portions.

Then I excercise 6-7 days a week, all road work. I alternate between running and walking days. Some days I run 3-3.5 miles, then walk 1/2 a mile to cool down. Other days I fast-walk for 7-8 miles. Some days I mix it up and run 3.5 miles out, then walk 3.5 back.

So far I'm down 20 pounds in the last 2 months, but I still have more I want to shed.

Fit ness pro grame ??? What is this strange thing you speak off??

Seriously, I have no programe at the moment. Once it gets closer to the end of winter and it looks like I'll get out there again, I'll start doing something. Last year I joined a gym and noticed a big difference in my fitness levels, so I'll probably do that again. I let the membership lapse a month ago when it ran out and I had no $$ to renew, plus being winter I was finding it hard to get up in the morning and I wasn't making the most of it anyway. I was going to make an effort to do some exercise at home on my own, but that lasted all of 2 days.

As for eating. Well, it's winter, I have to protect my body from the cold so a few extra kilos is warranted at the moment =) Again, once it gets closer to spring and I have to get back into that wetsuit, I'll start making an effort to loose that winter weight. Yes ... winter weight ... =)

You know, excercise and fitness are kinda like Newtons 3rd (??) law. A body in motion tends to stay in motion. A body at rest tends to stay at rest.

Remember when we were kids and we played outside? Who needed a fitness program? You got home from school, changed your clothes and grabbed whatever ball you needed for the season it was. Sigh. Those were the days.

Now, it's trying to find time to squeeze a run in. You're absolutely right about the body in motion thing. I know that I feel better when I'm in good shape and have more energy to stay in shape. It's definately harder to force your body back into shape the older you get though.

But to answer the original question, I just started running again, so I'm doing a couple of hilly miles a day and cutting back on the food consumption. Once work begins in the fall, I'll start running with some of our wrestlers and hopefully drop the 30 lbs I want to before the season starts in November.

I've been a gym member for over 20 years. I used to lift exclusively, but now I mix a boxing workout with swimming and core endurance training. So far so good. Since I have a physical job, if I miss a week or two, no big deal. (I won the genetic crap shoot.)

Yep, I agree. It's much harder to get back into a fitness regime once you've stopped. Unfortunately due to my work and study commitments I just don't have the time or energy to keep it up at the moment. I know it's a bit of a catch-22 situation - if I exercised I'd probably have more energy and be less tired, however at the moment I have no energy and am too tired to start.

I go to the gym 4 times a week.

I lift light weights ~ 45 minutes, (different muscle groups on alternate days), followed by 30 minutes of cardio.

I don't have a regimented program per se, but I do hit the gym at least 4x a week. While on duty, we're required to work out an hour each day on shift, so what I do is split the 48 hour shift up into 1 day of weight training and one of cardio. Generally I'll take my first day off shift as a rest day, then do weights at home on the second then back on shift and my workouts at the station.

After I did my first pool session and found my self way too out of shape to be comfortable diving, I joined a gym. I go at least 4 days a week, and do 45 minutes of cardio - elliptical and treadmill, followed by weights. On top of that, I will swim 700 - 800 yards 3 or 4 evenings a week.

Fortunately, my daughter is my gym buddy, and keeps me on track. If only she'd learn to dive........

Been slacking at the gym lately, but normally I go to the gym 3-4 days a week lift weights and my workouts are broken down like this:

Arms/Shoulders/Abs & 30 min bike
Chest/Back & 15-20 min HIIT on the eliptical
Legs & 20 min bike
Cardio Only - 15-20 min HIIT on elpitical

Lately I've been doing 2-3 days of cardio and one day of leg training. Been having problems with my shoulder so all upper body has been out for now. Been a little lazy lately too, but I'll snap out of it.

I took up road cycling about a year ago after an illness in order to improve my health and keep weight off. I had been a runner some years ago, but I hadn't done any regular exercise for....well, for way too long. Having slowly increased my strength and stamina on the bike I'm doing about 100 miles/week now, more than half of it on the weekends. I'm lucky to live in an area north of NYC that is great for cycling. I should add some upper body exercises....probably some kind of weight training...but it's tough to find the time. Meanwhile the cycling is not only helping me be healthy and keep the fat off, it's a great way to get out and see the area! I wish I'd taken it up years ago. Requisite scuba-related comment: getting a good cardio workout on a bike is also a great way to improve your breathing /air use efficiency.

During my school days i believe i was a good swimmer, and when it came to the laps i was asked to swim during the ow course i thought to myself....meh...too easy.

In i jumped swam the first lap like a star then half way back my feet started to sink...i was struggling to keep myself afloat....i was terribly unfit!

How did this happen...well i know how it happened....how to fix it?
Well i have also got a bad back (bricky) and the chiro had told me to get down the pool and do some laps to help it...had i been down there doing it? nup too lazy.

Well about 3-4 weeks ago i started doing laps at the local pool...and i tell ya its helping my back alot, and my fitness is getting much better.
I have built up to 14 laps atm and i am looking to increase this shortly.

I took up Crossfit a couple of months ago, it is awesome. Extremely physically challenging (literally drenched in sweat and collapsing at the end of a workout) but that's what makes it fun.

I do 4 or 5 sessions of that a week plus a cardio session every day (running, swimming or rowing.) I enjoy working at it.

I just stay active in the summer. Diving, running, mowing an acre of grass with the push mower, some biking. In the winter I get a 6 month membership at the Y and swim, play a lot of raquetball, lift and run. It helps I just need to find more time to do it. It's easy enough in the winter to get a routine going but pretty hard during the summer months.

This is my first post outside of the intro...

I think fitness is VERY important to divers. By lowering your HR and increasing your excercise tolerance, you reduce air consumption, increase your ability to handle a wider range of physical demands (currents, long swims) and your level of anxiety.

That said, I'm an old fat man who needs to get more fit. This is my current regimin (not counting the last month, missed due to a cross-country bicycle ride and a subsequent back injury.):

1) MWF, either a one hour fast bicycle ride or bicycle spin training. I finish with 30 min. stretching/cool down (very important to stretch. Ask me how I know...). This is high energy cardio. I've done this for 5 years and I've watched my resting HR drop 20bpm. My recovery times have been cut in half.

2)T-Th. Weight lifting and 35 min. of stair climbing.
3) Sundays...i usually ride my bicycle for 3-4 hours. This is a 65-70 mile ride. It is the ONLY way I can lose weight, since my wife is a great cajun cook and i'm a great irish eater.

4) During the summer, I try swim laps in our home pool (about 600yds, total) a few days a week. My kids make it hard to do consistantly, as they want to play any time I get in the pool. But, I try, I really do.....hehe

I lift a couple of times a week (home gym) and swim laps in the pool at least 3 days a week.

I get as much "whole grain" as I can, and try to stick to lean meats and veggies as much as possible...I've dropped from 220 to 189 over the last year. It's slow but steady, need to drop 10-12 more to be where I want to be..

I don't do anything to strict - not trying to lose weight, just endurance and strength.

Generally healthy diet..
At least an hour in the pool swimming/breath holding 5+ nights a week..
Weight training 3 days of the week
Good nights sleep!

Keeps me active and constantly getting stronger and building more endurance!

Squidlee...where do you road bike? I ride north of Houston most weekends. I just got back from a week long x-country ride from Houston to Orlando (via Nashville and Denmark, SC). It was a relay, not a continous ride, but it was a lot of fun.

There's nothing like coming down a mountain in north Georgia at 45mph in the dark on a bike with no lights (roadway lit by following police car escort). I kept praying, "let those be shadows, not potholes..."

squidlee1
08-09-2007, 13:13
let that animal be decomposed enough not to make me barf or wonder what a blow out would fee like at xx mph." Cool - I do love those police escorts.
Regardless of that being a relay - what a distance and I'm sure great memories. We ride in the Arlington area and then do some of the local charity rides as well. Gearing up for the annual Hotter N Hell ride. We just need to decide the number of miles. Remember the rubber side is down!

I have started two forms of martial arts, Tae soo do and Karate. I do workouts with an instructor 4 times a week and it has been great. I have to say Tae soo do helps a lot because of its focus of controlled breathing. After awhile you start learning how to get as much out of a breath of air, and as a result your breathing rate during exertion lowers. The other great things is the core and leg workout that you also get.

I agree. I am also a long distance cyclist. It has helped my weight and my SAC rate. My resting HR dropped from the mid-70's to 58 in three years. I'm still overweight (based on BMI), but I feel so much better. If only my wife weren't such a good cook...

You need to lift a couple of days a week to keep up your bone density. Cyclists are more prone than most to bone loss, male or female, due to the low bone stresses. Bone stress is necessary for bone strength.

I spin 5 days a week, rest on Saturdays and ride fairly long (65-75 miles) on Sundays. I'll lift two days a week most times, but feel better when I lift 3 days. I'll also sign up for a Century or do a solo brevet every couple of months, just to have something to train for (my charity group rides across the US into Canada almost every year in a relay ride for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society).

About the weight lifting; if you build muscle mass, you increase your body density. I've dropped about 5lbs of lead without losing a pound. By exhaling a tiny amount when free-diving, I sink like a rock. It's a pretty cool feeling, especially since I've been "fat" my whole life.

I swim 2 to 3 thousand yards a few days a week at the local Junior College. I do not consider swimming a program, just something that I like to do. In fact, any "fitness program" where I felt like I had to go, for me would not be fun unless I did it with my friends such as weight lifting or biking in place. I live in a hilly area. I bike down to the marina, or on Mare Island, or to the farmers market. I love XC skiing and also kayaking. I know that it is important to get the heart rate up a few times a week for a short duration, but this would only happen when swimming butterfly or sprinting, kayaking against a current or strong wind, and when I want to go fast XC skiing . I normally cruise at a leisure pace in everything. I consider my lifestyle next to lethargic. My daughter says that I know how to take it easy. But for SCUBA or free diving, some laps with a kick board is good for my legs and ankles.

Oh, it also helps to have a goal. My short term is going skiing and not being the first one to get worn out. Longer term is going to Grand Cayman and being in bathingsuit shape (notice NOT bikini shape). Longer term is family reunion this summer. Another goal is to set and example for my nieces, who are young. Then it's just staying in shape and looking forward to being able to dive when I am much older.

I workout 4-5 days a week, 30 minutes circut weight training followed by 15 min. cardio.

Was working out longer before and didn't seem to be reaching my goals after I had dropped 80 pounds, so I switched it to the current workout.

The workout now only takes 45 minutes and I do no chit chat during this time, another problem I used to have, now that my workout time is not my social hour I seem to be on track again.

Mine changes constantly, I really like to keep my body guessing and it helps me from getting bored with a workout. Sometimes I'll do stadiums for an hour with pull ups, push ups, and abs integrated in, go to a local trail and either bike for around 20 miles then work out or run for a few miles then work out (they have pull up bars at the start of the trail that helps). Other days I'll just go to the gym and lift, once I feel like I've covered all the muscle groups that I want I'll play some raquetball then follow that up with some laps in the pool.

I guess my fitness program consists of getting some activity at least once a day, and make sure I have fun while doing it.

I have been using Weight Watchers since December, to bring my weight down and get myself used to a healthier diet.

As far as exercise, I hit the treadmill 2-3 times a week for an hour long walk at a brisk speed. I also swim laps 3 times a week. I have a bad back so I also do my therapy exercises every morning.

Don't forget to switch arms 50-70 lifts each!
Don't forget to stretch out good before workout!

right now...

Personal trainer workout 1/2hr - three time a week.

Weights byself two days a week 1 hr,

Every weekday 1 to 1.5 hours cardio. Change it up as much as possible, but limited to upright and recumbant bikes and eliptical machines (bad knees).

Weekends. usually out doing things. so don't have a set schedule. Mountain Bikes, off road motorcycles, and the like.

Would like to add swimming, but the gym at work on 3rd floor (how great is that) does not have a pool.

on my 30th straight week and a total loss of a whopping 5 lbs... sigh.

I put a shorty wet suit then sweats over that and walk 3-4 miles then lift weights U can loose weight instantly. But keep hydrated. It's like a sauna suit. Works 4 me.

I'm getting ready for a marathon. It involves (Per week) - one long run (10 min run, one min walk) which is usually 10+K, and increases every week. Plus one interval running training, short outbursts of sprint + walk. Then one medium lenght medium speed jog and another easy jog.

I try to watch what I eat, although I have to improve on this front :-)

Right now being away from college I don't have a gym in the next building so I have been swimming whenever I can and chasing my nephews in the yard. On a day like today I was glad they wanted to stop for lunch after about an hour of fun.

12 ounce curls...preferably with a dark beer or a proper English bitter or stout it's denser, therefore heavier, therefore better workout for the bicep...

...just kidding, when I was in my prime doing a lot more hardcore tech diving I was running everyday, usually 3-4 miles a day and 10 every other weekend; since then I've slacked off quite a bit,gained some weight back, but now I'm starting to get back in shape...been waking up at 6:30, hitting a light weights workout before work, and then a run in the evenings...been at it about 3 weeks, hope I can keep it up!

I WAS trying to swim a mile most mornings before work.

However, with all the accursed smoke in the air this week (northern portion of S.F. Bay Area), I haven't been.

Triathlons and endurance Bike rides. I'm still a big guy, but love pushing myself as hard as I can, and beating guys half my size. :smiley36:

cardio - 3/4 times a week - try to do at least 40 to 60 minutes each time - and switch up machines to break the monotony

I do not run/jog due to an ankle injury a few years ago - has been doing better lately and may take up jogging as well as my cardio - also try to add weights in once in awhile if time permits

I try to do 30 minutes of cadio and a little lifting several times a week, at school I end up with more time to do so, at home I just go several miles on the exercise bike. It works out well, I can play guitar hero at the same time XD
