OT - Tone-up Tuesday

It's that day again, STalkers!

What's your favorite kind of exercise? The one that doesn't FEEL like exercise?

I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrv to swim (and hate to sweat!). When I'm in the water, I can FEEL the stress and tension and bad vibes flowing out of my fingertips with every stroke. I am simultaneoulsy invigorated and soothed. Best part? If I'm sweating, I can't tell!

Walking - I love to walk - especially around a neighborhood.  You see 10x more than when you drive past.  Part of the reason I bought our current home is that we are on a walking path around a small lake a park.

BUT - now with my leg issue I can no longer walk.

Swimming and pull-ups and throwing tires!!! They just feel so much more productive! An di'm a sweaty disgusting mess... I love it when my muscles get sore though.. It's a good soreness... Less pain... It feels like acocmplishment to me. LMAO

So much! If I ever get a few spare hundred dollars I'm buying one for the house... I'll keep it in the garage and go out there and beat it up...

Love long hikes and long bike rides.  I also love to swim, but only in lakes and not crammed into a pool full of humans.

Anything in nature feels like fun and not work.

When I was with the Psycho, he was training for bi/triathlons. On weekends, we did 75-100 mile bike rides. That training was probably the best part the whole nightmare!

I like walks and swimming (but no access to a pool boooo!) and like workout videos that are dance focused too.  But, I also like the strength training ones where I can feel my body getting stronger!

I'd say biking as I bike almost every day - but my commute IS exercise and involves a lot of hills and a lot of sweat.  However, I went mountain biking the other day and it was just pure FUN!  Even though I was sweaty and covered in dirt at the end.  SO FUN!

Also yoga - I don't always do easy stretching and often get into over-and hour long sessions that get the sweat flowing but by the end, I'm always relaxed, not like I exercised at all.

Find a good beginner class with an instructor you like.  If you dislike the instructor, it won't be producive.  Then, go in with zero expecations.  It's not a competitive sport.

Biggrin

Stair running is my favourite for weight loss. It does feel like a workout though, but it's my favourite, because I'm very motivated due to the results I get. Karate is my number one love, so I could do all-day seminars and not notice that I'm sweating. I experience pure joy doing karate.

Long ago, shortly after the Earth's crust cooled, I ran stairs as part of my fitness routine for discus and shot. Great leg workout and helps keep your hiney toned!
