Do you also lift/train?

Jan 25, 2023 - permalink

No but I do plan on changing that (for the long term, not the "brief couple of weeks then give up" routine I've been doing for years)

Don't have a desire to be supremely muscular or anything, just for health reasons.

@nbunited...No, sadly my cinnamon binge isn't always on the healthy side. I was asked one time, if I was stuck on a deserted island and could only have one food, what would it be. I said, without hesitation...Cinnamon Rolls. 🤣😂

Hahahaha you’re a man of good taste

It's a little odd, but even when my lifestyle is "sedentary"... I work as peon of the department of Road Maintenance, can be a heavy work sometimes, using shovels, pickaxes, sometimes real axes, handcars, so in a weird twist, i dont pay to get into gym, they pay me for exercising... Plus, im from Mexico, so you can guess the weather and work conditions are not so easy.

I do boxing and resistance band training. I keep nutrition mostly in check. I've dropped 50 lbs over the last year. Plan on another 15 and I'll hold right around 210

Congrats for losing that weight. I have been going through the same thing.

Yes. As another thread like this I said yes! ;)

I'm strict about nutrition but only have time to train 2-3 days per week. In the summer I almost exclusively focus on cycling. In my 20s I would do bodybuilding exercises 5 days a week and was much bigger but I am so busy/tired from work now that I can really only find the time and energy to workout on the weekends and the very beginning of the work week.

i usually train 4-5x a week with some kind of side of volleyball or another activity. i'm considering restarting BJJ after "quitting" after getting covid (is it really quitting if you only did it for a month?). i had some injuries in 2018/2019 (the onset of symptoms from hip dysplasia) that forced me to stop what i was doing at the time, and then covid hit and I got really out of shape. spent the last year doing a body recomposition and now its been mostly getting my diet in check to lose fat, nearly back in the 210s from a high of 222 and not too far from my preferred weight in the low 200s

I lift pretty dedicated 4 times a week. Nutrition could be better. So not an option in the poll.

Yes - 2 days on, 1 off, else I don't recover sufficiently.

I'm older and not in the best of health so I do bodybuilding, because it emphasises effective exercise with proper technique rather than raw strength. I avoid injury that way.

Doing it partly for health, partly for vanity, though I'm never going to be jacked with a 6-pack - just not my goal.

I'm at the gym about 2-3 times a week. I do it just to look and feel good, though I wish I could be more discipled in the nutrition area.
