I have found that if I skip one day, I’m extremely likely to skip the next, then a week, then I dread my workouts. So, every day I’m in the gym or at the studio.

Here’s my schedule:

Sunday: Pilates (Reformer) 50 min + leisurely outdoor bike ride or walk 60 min

Monday: Circuit 50 min

Tuesday: Spin 50 min

Wednesday: Pilates (Reformer) 50 min

Thursday: Pilates (Reformer), Hip Hop Yoga or Spin 50 min

Friday: Spin 50 min

Saturday: Pilates (Reformer) 50 min + Spin 50 min

Every Day: 5,000 steps in addition to scheduled workouts

    Most days: go for a bike ride. Weekends: go hiking. Summer weekends: hike to a lake and swim in it. Winter weekends: go cross country skiing. Occasionally: rent a mountain bike and get stoked on the gnar.

    Currently do the same thing everyday.

    I row 10k meters on my Concept2 rower in four 2500m intervals which takes between 12-13 and burns 133-140 cals per interval (for a total daily cal burn of 532-580 cals in about 50 mins per day).

    Have maintained my weight at between 150-155# over the past 10 months doing this but the trend is down (lost 5# over 10 months). Weighed in at exactly 150 this morning which was/is my lower limit.

    So, I'm obviously not eating enough cals back but recently I have not felt like eating that much and may have to cut back on the rowing if I lose much more weight.

    Going to let it drop to 148 and, if I don't like the result, I'll go on a bulk, cut back on the rowing and start lifting again to (re)build muscle.

    Typically
    M lift
    Tu run
    W lift
    Th run
    F lift
    S run
    S nothing

    I try to run 2 or 3 times a week so one of those runs may get dropped for whatever reason (weather, kid activities etc) and I usually always go for walks to the park and stuff with my kids every night plus we go on hikes on the weekends a lot.

    No I need a rest day - at least one, if not two depending on the week. My schedule is also changing next week with school starting and i'm not totally sure how I'm going to schedule my week in terms of working out. Tentatively the plan is:

    Monday: rowing
    Tuesday: cycling
    Wednesday: rowing
    Thursday: cycling
    Friday: maybe strength? Who knows.
    Saturday: rowing and cycling
    Sunday: off

    Monday Weights class and yoga
    Tuesday Hiit and Core class
    Wednesday Powerball class which is a class that we use exercise balls and weighted balls for a pretty intense workout.I was really sore after my 1st class. Also I ride my bike for an hour.
    Thursday step aerobics
    Friday Teacher picks but it's usually a mix of weights and core. Also yoga
    Saturday Cycling where I always push myself.
    Sunday My body needs a rest day although if I'm ready early enough I walk the 1/2 mile to church.

    I walk on treadmill every day for 60 minutes. I keep an eye on my heart rate and change the incline to keep it in the zone. To be honest, I've always hated exercise, but am committed to doing it daily. Treadmill lets me zone out and watch seasons of shows on my phone. Next April, I hope to reach weight goal and begin strength exercise some days.

    Currently running a lifting program based on PHUL but thinking I might go to a PPL

    Monday: Upper Body (Hypertrophy)
    Tuesday: Lower Body (Hypertrophy)
    Wednesday: Upper Body (Power)
    Thursday: Lower Body (Power)
    Friday: Optional accessory work for lagging lifts/body parts
    Saturday: Optional full body lifting, sometimes golf, yard work, etc.
    Sunday: rest

    I’ll warm up with some unstructured cardio on my spin bike or rowing machine before lifting. I frequently think about doing more consistent cardio or yoga... but don’t presently.

    I love the diversity of our workouts! @AnnPT77 I am obsessed with yours! Love the combination of spin with an outdoor activity.

    Its a great idea to do 5,000 steps in addition to workouts. I think I may try that.

    I mix up my routine between hasfit, fitness blender, walking, kickboxing, low impact aerobics and step. I try to do strength training full body 3 days a week and some cardio or walking every day. I am still fat ( obese) so keep my workouts at a lower intensity level.

    currently training for a marathon so my workout is primarily running (and then more running). I don't strength train, but I know i should. I work full time and I have two children (one is 14 months old) and so it's a struggle to even get the running workouts in. It's my goal to strength train post-November 2018.

    Monday - off or light ride on spin bike
    Tuesday - 5-6 miles
    Wednesday - 5-6 miles (some HIIT thrown in)
    Thursday - 5-6 miles (some HIIT thrown in)
    Friday - off or HIIT on spin bike
    Saturday - 6-8 miles
    Sunday - long run (at this point, ranges from 10-16 miles, depending on the week)
