    Mon/Wed/Fri I cycle anywhere between 8-12 miles depending on how much time I have...that results in anywhere between about 30 minutes to about 45 minutes.

    On Saturdays I try to get in a 20-25 mile ride...sometimes 30...so that's anywhere from about 75 minutes to 120 minutes.

    I lift on Tuesday and either Friday or Sunday for 60 minutes a pop.

    I've been hitting the rock climbing gym about 1 or 2 times per month...anywhere from 2-4 hours.

    On average I'd say 5-6 hours per week unless I'm training for something specifically...

    Per week...5-6h lifting. 0-1h cardio. 1h yoga. (Plus walking but I don't count that) about 6-8h per week.

    About 6-7 hours running, 7+ hours walking, another hour or two stretching and light weights after my runs. Sometimes an hour on the bike.

    10-12 hours a week. I bike to and from work each day, plus a lunch hour yoga class, and sometimes a second yoga class after work.

    8 to 12 hours a week on a bike. Other stuff as appropriate.

    Thinking I'm a lightweight here. I aim for 5 days a week at the Y. 45 mins each day. Tu/Th are weight days and M/W/F are treadmill and bike. History shows I am missing a day a week for whatever reason. But I can be there when they open, do my workout and still be at work for 7, so that works for me.

    Then I'm aiming to run 10K on either Sat or Sun. Been doing well at this.

    13 to 34 hours cycling a month (winter / summer), plus about 12 hours strength training a month.
    Few bits and pieces of various cardio on top of that.

    Just retired from work so may have more time in future to do things I enjoy.

    30 Minutes of interval training 5 days a week plus running every other day for 30-40 minutes.
  • karenbeckwith5karenbeckwith5 Posts: 67Member Member Posts: 67Member Member
    4 x 1 hour CrossFit sessions, 1 hour netball, 1 hours strength class, 1 - 2 hours running depending on training.

    I am ALLLL over the place. I try to run 3 times a week. Since I am finishing c210k this week, it is a little over an hour each time. I do 21 Day Fix on "off days" from running - which are 30 min each. However, I will sometimes skip those if I need rest days. I usually find 1 day a week to get on my bike and we've been averaging 2 hour rides lately. So I guess 5-6 hours a week?!

    40 mins to an hour and a half 3 days per week.... That's all I need...

    30-60 minutes a day, 5-6 days a week. If I can't fit anything else in, I go for a walk at lunch. Don't worry, you don't have to put as much time in as some of these folks to see results. We all have different goals.

    About 45-60 minutes per day, 6 days a week. If I miss one day or need another rest day, I don't feel too bad about only getting in 5 workouts per week. The minimum I'm happy with is 3 per week.

    I just started working out again becuase i've gained about 60 lbs in the past 8 years since I took a break from MMA and martial arts overall. It sucks. I recently found a love for running races (5Ks are all i can handle right now).

    So I just started working out again this week and I've been running or run/walking for 30 minutes and I plan on going 7 days a week and a couple of times a month i swipe the days because i usually participate in a 5K race

    In about 2 weeks, I'll be incorporating strength training about 3ish times per week just to minimize any loose skin over time. I'll be breaking it down like this Bi/Shoulders/Tri , Legs/Back, Abs and for the most part they will be an hour, except for abs...probably 20 minutes or so.

    In about 2 weeks after that I want to try this 100 pushups challenge LOL. This will be few minutes or so only. I think the 100 pushups challenge breaks it down depending on your current fitness level. This is 3x a week.

    My goal is to eventually get fit enough (at least stamina wise) that I can return to MMA and martial arts in general and be able to keep up with the work outs without passing out LOL.

    I used to train MMA 8 years ago and the type of workouts i did back then, there is no way i can physically do them now without improving on my fitness level over the next 4-6 months. I plan on returning to MMA training in 2018 also.

    So long story short, I will be working out everyday for anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

    Probably 10 to 12 hours weekly between running, biking, swimming & strength but don't compare what we do to what you do, our goals may be very different, some of us have been running etc for over a decade and the truth is that if your goal is improved health (vs mine of competing in road races / triathlons) 30 minutes to an hour of activity daily is plenty.

    Bit of both. I switch it up when I get bored and do whichever I feel like doing on that day. In the past, I lost weight walking only, but I was still pretty skinny-flabby. And when I was only running, I became injury prone when I was neglecting my strength. As soon as I added more strength back into my routine, everyone starting complementing me on my weight loss. I think the strength training part is really important, and if you're pressed for time it's the easier one to fit in.
  • apullumapullum Posts: 531Member Member Posts: 531Member Member
    I spend about 3-5 hours per week running, and probably about the same amount walking. When I first started losing weight, though, I spent maybe 30 minutes a day exercising.

    Hi! I've lost 45 pounds in the last 9 months.

    But I am now starting to incorporate weight training as I want to get my running pace up and my distance farther. My running has been in a total plateau for months.
