Re: What is your workout schedule?

  • I don't have a firm schedule per se, but I like to do a pilates class and a yoga class each week. I also try to do 1 or 2 sessions of cardio each week- right now it's biking since the weather is nice, but in the winter it was the elliptical. And I also mix in some circuit training videos that I can do at home. I think the key is to make sure to incorporate strength exercises, cardio and flexibility/stretching exercises. Hope this helps!
  • Sunday- 9:00 am spin class (1 hour long)
    Monday- 6:00 am Boot Camp class (45 minutes)
    Tuesday- I will either skip this day, or just head to the gym and do some cardio for an hour after work.
    Wednesday- 6:00 am power pump class (45 minutes) AND a 5:45 pm spin class (45 minutes)
    Thursday- rest day
    Friday- about an hour of cardio after work if I feel up to it
    Saturday- rest day (because I am just too busy on saturday to go to the gym!!)
  • M: Run (training for a half), yoga, BodyPump

    Tu: Cycle, BodyCombat

    We: Step, Run, yoga, BodyPump

    Th: Cycle, BodyCombat, yoga

    Fr: Cycle, BodyPump, run, yoga

    Sa: Yoga, run, BodyCombat

    Sun: Rest
  • I prefer Morning 5 Am to 7AM
  • Monday-Zumba

    My body canny handle strenuous workouts all the time, so4 days a week works best for me. I try to eat healthy as well, but make Fridays my "cheat" day. It's our date night, and we usually go out to dinner. I try not to make it too crazy of an eating day though, just not as consumed by calories.

    Cinnabun and Junebug say, "Go Wildcats!"

  • I am on day 10 of the insanity workout.  Sunday is the weekly day off from it.  Each workout is around 40 minutes and my job is work at home, so I do it each day during my lunch break.  If I don't set aside the same time each day, it is so easy to skip it.
  • I dont follow a strict schedule, but I try to make sure I am physically active 5 days a week. 
    I'm training for a marathon, so I typically run 3-4 times a week.
    Otherwise, I do circuit training the other days.
  • I am training for a half marathon right now and so my training schedule is flexible but generally goes like this:

    M: Walk 3 miles w/ dog
    T: 3.5 mi run
    W: 5 mi run
    Th: 4 mile run
    Fr: Cross Training Day! (ie Hiking, Paddleboarding, Yoga, etc.)
    Sa: 4 mile run
    Sunday: Long Run day!!

    In the winter, I tend to swap 2 running days for Spin and I drop the long run.  Every day I do a 5 minute abs circuit and I will swap a shorter run day for a 40 minute Kettlebell/ body weight workout if my feet need a break from running.
  • I do 3 days on - 1 day off - mix up the type of exercise as I see fit depending on time, weather and mood. My favorites are Zumba, running and spinning, but I throw a weights day in every now and then or a swim day, or just a active play day with my daughter. I think mixing up the type of workout you do keeps you from getting burned out on one thing. I aim for at least 30 min of continuous effort, but from what I have heard if you are in a time crunch 20 min is OK as well, but really anything is better than nothing :)
  • I don't follow a particularly rigid schedule, but I do aim to work out 5-6 days per week. I typically make Sundays my rest day as it's the day I want to be out and doing fun things or be a bum all day.

    I try to plan my workouts based on daily schedules.. if I have plans after work (when I prefer to work out) I'll get up early to do it in the morning.
  • Sunday- rest day

    Monday- Run at work,Yoga at the gym

    Tuesday- Zumba

    Wednesday- Zumba

    Thursday- Run at work, Yoga at the gym

    Friday- Walk

    Saturday- Body Sculpt

  • I've worked myself up to pilates class 3x/week plus all the walking in my normal life (40 min walking commute, etc).

    I've found I enjoy exercise in the morning before work the most. It gives me energy and puts me in a good headspace to conquer the day. Lately I've been doing Tues, Fri, Sun. I'm getting stronger so I'll probably aim for 4x by the end of the year.

    My daily workout plan contains a regular cardio and yoga exercises.
    I spend more then 1 hour at my daily workouts.
    My daily workouts are as follow:
    Running: 15 minutes,
    Jogging: 15 minutes,
    Push ups: 25,
    Pull ups: 25,
    Sits ups: 50,
    and Yoga : 30 minutes.  

  • Mon - off Tues - 30 min Jillian Michaels video Wed - Run 3m Thurs - 1h BodyPump class (+ 30 min elliptical sometimes) Fri - 30 min circuit training + 3m run Sat - off Sun - long run + 3 hours of belly dance classes
  • When I first started dieting, I did 45 minutes a day on the recumbent bike. Now I do about 30 minutes a day on the treadmill or the elliptical. I don't have as much time to work out as I used to, but I still try to go every day. I recommend working out first thing in the morning if you can. You're less likely to put it off if you do it right away.
  • Doing cardio in evening for three days and then doing heavy work out regime for three days and taking 1day off that’s Sunday.

  • I try to do 5 days a week of structured exercise. Usually HIIT, but some cardio, some reg strength, and a weekly yoga for flexibility, balance and mental wellness. My goal is 150min/week:
