    I think that the majority of us on this board believe just because we are large, doesn't mean we cant be healthy. I think daily is important for both your physical & mental health, regardless of whether you are trying to lose weight or not. I would like this thread to be a place where people (fat or thin) can support each others (or lack there of) routine.

    I am a big guy who goes to the gym 5-7 days a week & I love it!! So let everyone know what you did in your routine today & let us all be supportive a healthy large lifestyle!!!

    Feel free to post questions or suggestions & let's see what we can do for each other. This isn't meant to be a place of judgement, so if you did 5 minutes of walking today, that's great!! If you did 60 minutes on the elliptical machine, that's great!!

    Report what you did and let's all applaud!

    I did 45 minutes on the elliptical machine today. How about you??

    Just so you know, there are several exercise threads on the board already. I'm not saying you're in the wrong for what you posted, but the mods are more than likely going to redirect your thread into one of the previous threads.

    I dunno, seems like this thread has a slightly different angle, since it's more of a daily exercise diary, no? Thought the other threads were more informational....and a tremendous amount of information at that.

    I'd be up for a virtual exercise buddy thread, since I have no one to go to the gym with in real life.

    That is EXACTLY what I meant for this thread to be. A daily place to say what you did & get support for doing so. So I will keep it going and see if it can get a pulse.

    Today: 40 minutes on the elliptical, 5 minutes on the stair climber, 5 minutes running on the treadmill & ten minutes of weight work.

    How about you??

    I exercise after work, so I haven't done today yet...

    Monday I did 35 minutes on the treadmill. Yesterday was off. Today I'm planning to do elliptical, I think.


    PS I'm impressed with 45 minutes on the elliptical. I remember when I first tried it, I could barely do 5 minutes. Took awhile, but I've built up to about 30 minutes.

    Thanks for the props on the 45!!

    30 Min is great as well! Just keep doing it and you will continue to build up more stamina.

    Keep up the good work!

    I do a 3 and a bit mile walk a few times a week. Going to step it up to everyday along with doing some weight training and maybe an exercise bike. Just gotta push myself a bit more before it gets to late.

    I agree. That sounds fantastic right about now. I think my bum is glued to this comfy chair, though... or at least suction cupped. I'm dying to go swimming. Carrie, you should live up here again!! :p Come back!!

    I'm about to do the leg portion of the pit workout in a few. 52 minutes. Today is legs, which involves kicks, shadowuhhh kickboxing :p, about 400 squats of different variations, and a basic warmup.

    Thanks! I do it 4-5 times a week, normally, so my contributions to this thread are likely to be pretty repetitive.

    Believe me, I think about it all the time! I still think of it as home. Who knows? :batting:

    400 squats? I DIE. You're hardcore, Mr. Blaze; I salute you. :D

    Jon: The Great Gama must be smiling :D

    400 Squats: very impressive now how do you vary the sets and reps...

    ------------------------------------
    And for those who don't know who "The Great Gama" is

    [​IMG]


    The "Great" Gama (1882-1960), also known as Rustam-e-zaman Gama Pahelvan, born Ghulam Muhammad, in Amritsar, British India, was a renowned wrestler and a practitioner of Pehlwani wrestling. He was awarded the Indian version of the World Heavyweight title on October 15, 1910. To this date he is the only wrestler in history who remained undefeated his whole life; his career spanned more than 50 years. Gama died in Lahore, Pakistan in 1960.
    -------------------------------

    As for me- I did a workout of Prisoner Squats the other day. Only 200 reps (4 sets of 50) and my knees were feeling it the next day.

    One of my favorite free weight workout is the Dumbbell Squat & Shoulder Press

    I usually use 45 lbs Dumbbells for 3 sets 10 reps. A nice full body workout.

    Well for this: Whenever John Hackelman tells me to squat, I squat. lol

    If I do it on my own. I usually Ginga (Capoeira base movement), and just do a couple... Ginga some more... Do a couple until I hit 500. My times vary, but I usually do it in under an hour with a ginga for added cardio.

    Jon:

    Is this the Ginga movements that you do? Do you follow Hackelman's workout through DVVDs or going to one of the schools at your free time?

    You are right about the movement, but I have the pit workout DVD on hand. I would love to go to Cali and train though. :)
