I try to work out 5-6 days a week, and mix up my routine to keep things interesting...so I don't really have a standard workout routine. I do spinning classes, yoga, pilates, BodyPump and just general cardio and weight training. I'm also signing up for an 8-week summer dance class session.

I'm highly excited that it's getting warm out - I'll be more inclined to go for runs outside, hike and rock climb.

I don't really work out. I walk A LOT though, I usually walk a couple miles on the beach when it is warm out. I also enjoy dancing, shoot hoops, and my job is fairly active.

I would like to build muscle though, I am such a weakling!

Wow... I really wish I had some of the dedication you all have. I tend to lazily work out on my balance ball thing whenever I feel like it (which can be everyday or 2 x's a week) We love to hike through forests with the dog and camp and stuff. So when it's nice out, like it has been lately, we will take 3 mile hikes 2 or 3 times a week. I looove that. But those are my "workouts" and I'm in good shape. Since the weather has been perfect for hiking, I've lost about 6 pounds without trying.... yeah!

Everyday (unless I'm really sick or busy), I do:

1.5 miles on the elliptical (I do it at 2.5mph, so this takes about 50 minutes)

15 mins of intentional walking

10 mins 3 - 5lb dumbells

15 minutes with a resistance band

15 mins stretching/calisthenics

& 30 minutes dancing.

Total of 135 minutes, and burns aprox 600 calories (not that it matters).

I'm not very creative with my routine...

Monday: off

Tuesday: speed work - usually ends up to be 4 or 5 miles

Wed: 4 miles

Thursday: 4-6 miles

Friday: off or 3 or 4 miles

Saturday: off

Sunday: 10-20 mile run

Just a lot of running for me...

Monday and Wednesday

~20 minutes recumbant bicycle while reading

~ 3 minutes stretching calves

~14 minutes stairmaster stretching my fingers and arms while on the stairmaster

~15 minutes general stretching

~ 5 minutes bouldering warm up

1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours climbing in a group of 2 or 3 starting with a 5.7 climb and working my way up to 5.10's. I'll upclimb and downclimb the 5.7 and if available lead a 5.8, 5.9 and then a 5.10a. Depending on how I feel I'll lead more or just top rope the rest of the evening.

Tuesday and Thursdays

2 mile round trip walk to the library

Friday, Saturday, Sunday

No fixed routine, but my wife and I generally take at least one walk or bicycle ride depending on the weather. I also like to get outdoors climbing once in a while. If it's raining and my wife is busy I'll visit the climbing gym on the weekend and repeat my Monday/Wednesday routine.

3x's a week I head to the gym and do 25 mins. of cardio (elliptical or running around the indoor track), followed up by leg curls, calf presses, compound rows, tricep dips, biceps curls, and crunches. I've also been trying to improve my sit-ups; my husband can knock off 60 of them in one sitting (the full ones where your elbows touch your knees) without the help of someone holding his feet. So my competitive ways have kicked in and I must best him at this!

Every other day I spend just running, jump roping or doing something fun like Pilates for an hour. Sunday is usually my day off.

I have an elipitcal machine which I use for an hour every monday-friday, also I have an eight minute abs and legs video and I usually do afterwards and on Mondays and Wednesday I have a yoga class that is about fifty minutes long. All of this and I'm still not in the shape that I wish I was, I think my body needs more exercise than the average person or something, it's kind of frustrating but I know it's good for me so I deal. =]

I try to go to the gym 3 times a week, but it's usually only twice.

I do a 7-10 min cardio warm-up, usually on the elliptical.

Then a weight routine that includes calf raises, squats, back raises, a whole lot of upperbody work, crunches, leg lifts and more core work. This is followed by 25-30 mins cardio- could be running, biking or elliptical, depends on my mood and energy level. Then I'll do about 15 mins of yoga/stretching.

I also dance at least twice a week for an hour and a half.

Get ready for this one:

Work = I'm on my feet constantly anywhere from 4-9 hours within a break, it's the best workout in the world (I'm a waitress)

Sunday: Work

Monday: Work

Tuesday: Crunches, 2 minutes of kickboxing

Wednesday: Remote control exercises (Channel 2-11 is tough) & Crunches

Thursday: Crunches (15 minutes on elliptical if possible)

Friday: Crunches (elliptical if possible)

Saturday: Work

I randomly do squats, weight lifting, crunches, pilates, and kickboxing too.

Before I started school up again, I was on the elliptical 3-6 days out of the week. I have class 4 days a week, work 3, and only 1 day off. I don't have a set workout anymore, but I try to get on the elliptical at least twice a week. During the Fall semester, I had Kickboxing twice a week and that class got me working hard! I lost 3 pounds of fat, toned up a bit, and learned some great workouts! I LOVE to dance, but don't do it much anymore because of time. Lately, I've been doing a lot of different crunches (between 100-200 each time). I can't wait for summer... then I'll have a set exercise routine again! YAY! I miss Winsor Pilates (my sis is in the new infommercial for it) and Carmen Electra's striptease workout! Both are fun!

Sorry, most of that was just babbling.

I either walk for 45 minutes, scrub flors at work which is a good 45 minute workout too, or dance along with Hinoi Team Para para videos.

Strength training (weights) twice a week.

60 minutes of running mixed with walking intervals (till I heal) 3x/per week.

Spinning 60 minutes 2x per week.

Plus 45 minute daily walks with the pooch on the 4 days I don't run. When I do she just goes with me.

30 minutes of treadmill

45 minutes on elliptical

20 minutes stationary bike

20 minutes lifting weights

then 20 situps

and then I take a short walk to cool down.

I do interval walking 45 minutes a day, 4 times a week (my neighborhood is fabulous for this-- it's extremely hilly so it really works me and has its own traffic lane JUST for people who are walking/jogging/running/biking/whatever), do a full-body 60 minute weight training routine twice a week, and do random bits of hatha yoga to stretch, usually before bedtime

I live in South Texas and as you may guess.... it gets hot here. So I usually have to slather on the SPF and go outsde as soon as I wake up.

Lots of squats, bench press, and rows. I prefer it to a lot of other lifting routines because it sets a progression for you to strive for. It looks complicated, but the excel spreadsheet makes it easy. Just put in what you're currently lifting, and it arranges all your sets over the next 9 weeks automatically. Brilliant!

I've been doing it for about the last 12 weeks and I've seen a phenomenal increase in strength.

I Para Prara dance to Hinoi team's Para para version of their videos. I also mop and sweep a lot at work. But I guess I eat too much cause I don't lose weight. Which is weird and making me angry...lol
