How many hours do you usually spend exercising??


  • cwolfman13cwolfman13 Posts: 33,927Member Member Posts: 33,927Member Member
    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 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.

    Not as much as I want. Right now I'm only doing about 1 1.2 hours per week. This needs to change and SOON! lol

    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.
