What is your daily routine?

#1

Post by KandyKisses123 » Thu Jul 22, 2004 6:47 pm

Hey everybody,
Since my last post on here I've recently started a regular routine. Each day I do about 200 crunches along with a half hour of cardio(jumping on the trampoline,running in place, cycling, dancing). Every other day I do push-ups. I haven't been eating at night so much lately and I have been drinking a lot more water. I was curious to know what everyone else does to stay in shape. I also would like to know if anyone has any suggestions as to how i can better my routine. Thanks and have a great day!

When college starts, I might get into a regular exercise rountine. Since, you know, gym usage will be free. [img]smile.gif[/img]

And I'm gonna take a martial arts class. So I will finally know KUNG-FU.

(200 crunches, though? Jesus Christ, I hope that's not the amount you started on. 'Cause yoga's not that strenuous and it's just as effective for weight loss.)

45 minutes of crunches/reverse crunches/bicylce crunches in front of the TV 3 times a week to keep my stomach toned.

I lift 3 or 4 times a week, I'm lazy during the summer. During school for some reason when I should have less energy I'm lifting 5 or 6 days a week.

My lifting routine changes on a day to day basis on how I'm feeling and what I think I need to work on.

Plus a lot of basketball in my backyard and DDR for cardio.

I plan on starting a routine very soon. *Cue everyone thinking, 'Yeah right.'* But really, I've already decided to do something like this. Maybe, fate willing, tomorrow I'll finally pick up my own mat and DDR. I figure that if I do that half an hour a day of DDR--at least till school starts--and add in crunches and perhaps some other exercises, I'll have improved fitness-wise by the time band camp starts in about two weeks. Does anyone have some suggestions on keeping to your schedule and what to add to it? Because honestly, I think I'll need to set a time every day--otherwise I might not always do it. And some ideas for exercises would be good. Plus, at my house we're not the most careful eaters. We don't pig out all the time on junk food, but we don't always have a well balanced diet and such.

And I know it doesn't have to be DDR...but it gives me an excuse to not have to go out on days when I look like or feel like crap, and plus, it's entertaining. Come on everybody, now who loves DDR?? =]

Hey, I'm a bandie too! What do you play? I'm a baritone.

Good luck on trying to only play a 1/2 hour of DDR- I can never stop playing until my legs feel like jello.

I have a lot of trouble during summer keeping a regular workout schedule, where as during school I work out almost every night because I always have the same little bit of free time every night to do so. Try setting an alarm for the same time every morning, eating breakfast, then working out. Then you get it out of the way and don't tend to procastinate the rest of the day.

Don't do just regular ol' crunches. Your abs aren't one big slab of muscle, they're several intricate little muscles that need to be worked seperately. Mix it up with reverse crunches, bike crunches, jacknifre crunches, etc.

As for diet, find a food you love to eat that's not bad for you (preferably healthy). Whenever you feel the urge to snack, eat that. I like to melt cheese on crackers or eat granny smith apples if we have them.

Since you're in band, you'll want to work your legs and arms. Dumbells are great, you can do several great things with them. Obviously curls for your biceps to help you hold the instrument easier (unless you're a clarinet- whereas you don't need help [img]tongue.gif[/img] ). You can do squats and lunges while holding them for your legs and for shoulders you can hold them in your hands straight down at your side and then try and touch your ears with your shoulders while keeping your arms limp.

Hope that helps.

[img]graemlins/lol.gif[/img] Thank you Shy Guy! *chuckle* Why am I laughing? ...Hah, I AM a clarinet!

Honestly, clarinets are a pain to hold at attention. They're not heavy--one of the lightest--but holding those things the way we're supposed to works a whole set of muscles I didn't know I had. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

I don't know much about alternate types of crunches, so I might have to look those up. The only stuff we did in gym class was 100 crunches to the center, 50 to the left and right respectively. Tho', there might have been once when we had to do 100 to each side. -_-

Even though I AM a clarinet ( :D ) working on the arms is a good idea. I think my mom might have a set of few pound dumbbells, but that's it. And on the side of nutrition, I asked my mom to get some more peaches and such. We now have strawberries, grapes, nectarines, AND peaches. Yummy! *slurp* (Hee hee, I'm not much of a vegetable person.) :D Thanks again!!

(Oh, I got DDRMAX2, but I don't have a pad yet...so I'm just practicing without one. ...ugh... All those E's hurt my eyes...!)

^ Haha! I also am currently playing without pads, I've been playing a long time in the arcade but I finally decided to buy it for home. I ordered my pads a while ago and should be getting them Thursday.

No offense, I just can't understand what's hard about holding a instrument up and down, although I don't know what the proper carriage for the clarinet is, all well. ^^

Me, Andre, and Andre's Brother do,
50 Chest Presses, using our hands on the side bar,
50 Chest Presses using our hand on the top bar
40 Push-ups
3 miles on the tredmill, or outside, depends on the weather.
Then we take 40-50 pound waits and do curl-ups, about 15/rep
Then we take 5 lb weight and run in place for 30 seconds, stop then do it again without weights, then repeat

Between every single excersice we do 20 sit-ups, so I think in total that accounts for 200+ situps

It gave me a chest and stomach within 2-3 weeks

Instead of actually running, swing your arms, (you can run another time too) but I mean, it's supposed to work the arms

Nice try, you're not fooling anyone. We all know you are fat and the same person.

as for my daily routine, first I have intense sex with my young teenage girl slaves, then go on my yacht and kill endangered marine life while being fellated by Ian Thorpe.

Cross Country is my routine. After 16 miles of running from 7:00 to 10:30...I ain't the mood for anything else. Except hobbling between my couch and comp for the rest of the day.

for some reason I read that as country music at first.

well, between gym class which is about 30 sit ups and push ups + a mile run, and swim team, which is another 1 or 1 1/2 mile run with 250 sit ups and 40 push-ups, AND actual swimming. im usually pretty tired by the time i get home.

I'm not sure it's a routine, but I go on some nice hikes as often as I can. I'm not satisfied unless I get at least 5 miles in.
