Just checking...

I'd like to see less of some of us @ the DHP and/or Chosen Few picnics this year...including myself. The Disco Gut and Deep House Thighs have got to go. ;)

Some good ideas beyond the gym: Dance classes!!!!!! The hip hop/funk/house dance instructor at the Old Town School of Folk Music is trying to kill me...for real. graemlins/rofl.gif West African dance ain't no punk, either.

Oh, and tennis is great exercise too. Lots of clubs/parks have lessons available now and into spring.

West African Dance used to kick my rear end! No joke indeed. I wish I could find another class near me. Been doing Pilates since January - however I need to do more, I could stand to lose a few.

How do you like Pilates, Leslie? I'm considering signing up for either that or yoga next month. Like the core-strengthening of Pilates, but dig the stretching of the yoga poses (am a novice to both). Trying to relieve stress from old car accident injuries, and tone.

30-35 miles/week running. Thinking about getting back into competition.

Oh, yeah, back to the gym for strength training.

And need to do some speedwork around the track:

12x400 meters one Saturday

or

4x400
5x300
6x200 another Saturday

or

speed pickups in Prospect Park the third Saturday!

I've only done mat classes which are in a small group setting, I really want to have semi-private or a few private lessons on the Refomer but those classes are NOT cheap. I recently bought a really good video at Target that has 25 different Pilates work outs on it, but I strongly suggest you take a class first because an instructor is important with regard to stance, posture, etc.

I tried yoga once and hated it, but a friend and I discussed it a few months ago and I think I'd like to try it again.

Many times its 8 reps, in some instances only 3, some 10. But as Ashaki said you feel and notice the results rather quickly. The hard part is keeping your stomach held in while youare doing all this, but before you know it it gets stronger and you find yourself doing it automatically. My class finished up in Feb and I need to get back to another one ASAP.

On another note, I have been reading a lot lately and seeing on tv shows, many experts who believe the whole notion of hourl long crazy work outs have no more health benefit than doing 15 minutes of exercise per day. Anyone have thoughts on that?

Having said that, I believe that weight loss is more calories you shed off than you consume. Having said that, I thought that running exerts more energy than walking, therefore burning off more calories.

However, you still should alternate walking and running if you are a beginning runner. Start off slowly, then see yourself getting into some shape after about a couple of weeks. As time goes on , you can decrease the walking. Peace.

The pace/moves were very challenging, but not at all scary like I thought it would be. You control the intensity of your workout (the resistance, going up hills, speed pedaling, etc.). My instructor, a very sweet young woman, kept urging me to pace myself and take breaks if necessary. She even said I did great! smile.gif

I was at the gym Monday night and picked up a schedule. I think I am going to take on a kickboxing class on Mondays & Wednesdays & Sundays til my dance class starts back up then I will replace the Monday with the danceclass. The dance instructor damn near killed me Monday. I limped my ass out of there a few minutes early. My body went into "oh hell no you didn't think i was gonna let you do THAT" mode. I will give my ankle a minute to go down and I will be at the gym Sunday morning.

Cardio-aerobics M-W-F, Strength & toning T-TH-S. I workout 30-45 mins a day and keep thinking "size 10, size 10, size 10 by X-mas" graemlins/rofl.gif I also have a meal plan (not diet) to follow. It's challenging but I got to do it, I'll be 35 in this year, weight makes me look older & I want to look 25. I am willing to take on a buddy to get thru stuff together. Lack motivation is my biggest downfall :(

Workout?

I carry records for blocks to get to a party...

I try to dance for a little cardio...

I dig for records to keep the back loose...

I stand for hours when I play (don't know what this does)

And I have a dominatrix who treats me like a slave ( graemlins/1luvu.gif )

holy workout that's so funny... i was just thinking about starting a thread on bellydancing! Do you take classes?

just started a bellydancing class and it is kicking my butt! my hips and shoulders are so sore - damn! You think it is just sexy, pretty, smooth moves, but you really need control and strenth to do a lot of that stuff.

I run 2xs a week (~8 miles total) (ugh... this week in the @#$% SNOW!)

I get my sweat on dancing at least every other week. Just had a great time last night listening to DJ KC drop a lot of the new stuff he got in Miami. Wahoo! That was funnnnnn!

Need to start stretching more and doing some push ups/sit ups. Vacation & bikini time is just around the corner! graemlins/bolt.gif

i don't know how i started, but for about 4 years i worked out religiously but stopped 3 years ago and cant seem to get back off the couch

but i pop in for random classes - step aerobics to good music is my favorite, hopping and bopping for an hour and you dont even realize the time smile.gif though missing the step as much as i do has resulted in huge bruising and swollen lumps

regular boxing - too gruff, its fun - till you get hit back
bellydancing - arm killer
regular aerobics - oonce i did step, i couldnt do this againn - too boring
step aerobics - good for legs/upper legs/butt
kick boxing/tai bo - eh, maybe imn missing something but its kinda boring, regular martial arts would be better
spinning - im sure it would be great, i wanna really do it, but those bikes hurt my coochie area/bones to the point i cant sit on them wtf! - but damn, those people coome out of that class drenched - like they just shed 5 lbs in that one workout
pilates - THAT JUNX CAN REALLY RESHAPE YOUR BODY! my short (5'2) cousin said it elongates your muscles, like a ballerina ... i wanna do it, but the real pilates (not the classes, but the full thing w/all the equipment and machines, not just a ball etc) is expensive, one day
yoga - good for my a.d.d. mind, buti dont get the physical benefit, which is what i end up thinking about the whole time im tryig to 'breathe in, breahte out and relax'
tai chi/kungfu - these are the best - about to commit to a martial arts place and drop the other stuff, but not quite there yet...

smile.gif

but motsly , i exercise my lower forearm w/my mega remote i jsut got for my souped up digital cable and now that someone here just explained 'in demand hbo'

for me the idea is to definitely keep trying new things because I get too bored way too easy...

actually there are physical benefits to yoga...after yoga classes I feel obligated to not pick up a cigarette and eat healthy...plus it is great for toning...there are many many different variations of yoga...

plus I have a really cool yoga mat and carrier that look soooo fly when i have it on my back walking down the street...

now why does work out clothes cost so damn much..

don't give up on yoga yet. try an astanga (or "ashtanga") yoga class in your area. after the sun salutations, if you ain't sweating, you proably don't have pores.

my workouts come automatically while i'm teaching yoga classes (1.5 hrs). normally i teach 3 times a week, and i substitute as needed--this week "as needed" meant that today will be my 5th class since saturday. *whew*

in addition to the centering and stress relieving aspects, i've developed upper body strength i've never had before as well as a waistline for bikini season.

I took some Afro-Cuban dance classes up in Mt. Rainier MD, looking to start that again, good work out. Also a woman name Kukuwa will give you the work out of a lifetime if you are in the DC area she's at a lot of Sport and Health location (she teaches Caribbean dance/aerobics). If anyone is interested in a weekly workout get together at the gyms, dance studios, or home gyms, I'm down!!!
