Well Thursday I did a hard gymnastics workout and I was sore on hams, pecs and abs next day. Today I am over that and I will be doing some today.

Happy Christmas all. We went for a walk around the foothills of our village this morning, before lunch, and had another walk this evening!

No, not 'hard' exercise today, but maybe a little bicycle in the afternoon. It's an off-day in an off-easy week.

I suppose I'm going to have to read this entire thread and see what results I may expect if I get on an aggressive program. Things have slipped up on me when I wasn't looking and I need to start paying attention. I'm going to start little and add to it and hope it can become a good habit.

I went to the gym with a friend at lunch time and did cardio for half an hour. My gym near home is shut for two weeks so no swimming :(

Used to work out hard at least three times a week. That was about 3 years back. Then began going with my wife last year, again 3 times per week. But we got sidetracked after a couple months. So last night, I went with my 19 year-old daughter. Did an upper body work out with dumbells, and then a 1.5 mile brisk walk on the track. After that, I did a cool-down walk with my daughter. Her idea of a cool-down walk was faster than my brisk walk. I really had to push to keep up with her, and she'd been running on an elliptical runner for 30 minutes, and then on the treadmil for another half hour. But then again, when I was 19, I was tireless, and very strong and supple. I think at age fifty, it's going to take me a bit before I can walk tirelessly again. But I got a good start. We will be going to the gym again tomorrow night. Hope my legs feel more energetic than they do right now.

I am happy to say that the upper body workout can increase, as my tentative 25 lb. dumbells were jsut to light and didn't task me at all. When I last stopped using them, I was using 45 pounders. I should be back there in about two months.

Really great to see so many people interested in Fitness.I do two 1 hr. kickboxing classes a week.Also,I do a low weight high repetition routine of 4 sets of twenty that pretty much has me done by the end that includes upper,lower and abs.I also do 1 hour of arobics 3 times a week.The 2 dogs get walked early and late everyday as well.

I've been on this routine now for 17 months and have reduced my weight from 220 lbs to 190 and put on quite a bit of lean muscle and went from a 38 waist to a 32 and down to 12% body fat,hey I don't cut out all the fat in my diet,how boring would that be.Anyway at 52 I need this to maintain good health well into retirement,hopefully.

I'll probably do some bicycle riding later today and the rest of the week, and maybe some light weights...
