I know not everyone can be buff like InProblematique but do you excersise? If so what do you usually do, walk, run, lift weights?

 

I am trying to start to walk at least two or three times a week, I walked three miles tonight now I just have to hope I will be able to get out of bed in the morning.

I literally try to gain some muscle weight. I know 5'6"/130 is small, but I do run 8-10 miles a day and do 100 pushups and situps before bed, I was in two world class drumlines (a group of scientists attached some breathing/heart monitors and stuff to a drummer on another line a few years ago and said our metabolic rates/energy outputs and whatnot were as high as a marathon runner and a short distance sprinter all at once), I used to be a pro-am wakeboarder (and still avidly wakeboard now), and I go mountain biking. 

 

I've broken a ton of bones...arms, legs, ribs, ankles, etc..., slipped some discs in my back, have had a ton of stitches and whatnot. So I go through periods where I can't do anything. When I'm healthy, I pretty much run the 8 miles at least, and depending on the weather, I'll go biking or wakeboarding. Also, ultimate frisbee. I'm in a league in Charlotte. lol

 

Edit: Here's a video of the athletic abilities required in DCI. I'm not on this line (I marched for two different lines in 2010 and 2011), but aside from shows getting a little more difficult physically for indoor percussion (which is ostensibly a drumline performing a high level conceptual show inside while "marching" [sprinting around] a basketball court instead of a football field. Tarps related to the conceptual shows are put on the court for each line. lol)

 

 

Marching my one season of DCI (Drum Corps International, which is basically the NFL for marching band, except it's only brass and percussion. No woodwinds) and my one season with WGI (International indoor drumline stuff, like DCI but inside and only with drums) were two of the best years of my life. I was also in the best shape of my life. I've tried to keep my physical level at least marginally close to that. Nothing I can do will ever be nearly as hard as those two drumlines were, but 8 miles per day plus my hobbies is enough.

I used to run 2 to 3 miles about 4 times per week, but over the last month my knee has been REALLY aggravating.

 

So now I'm trying to cut down my running to at most once or twice per week and I'm adding in a couple of days of bodyweight training.

 

Planks, Squats, sit-ups, push-ups, lunges and that type of thing

This video shows a few examples. The guy in it is a thousand times more advanced than me and many of these exercises I would have zero chance of currently being able to do.

 

 

Unfortunately I have one of those metabolisms that gains weight really easily, so I have to stay on top of my exercise and diet or else I get Sean May-esque.

 

I'm currently 235, my goal is 215... But my weight was as high as 285 18 months ago which was pretty ridiculous.

To be fair, much of that is not by choice

With that level of exercise, Do you have a difficult time avoiding injuries?

 

With me, something is always hurting. But I probably have 20 years on you.

When I was going through the whole "Do We Want You?" portion of my training, I strained my MCL enough to have serious trouble bending my knee, but was able to work through it.

 

Thus far in my ~year doing this mess, I've been lucky to avoid any sort of lasting injury and haven't needed to see any medical professional.  That said, I've had a bunch of buddies drop out for one injury or another (mostly stress fractures in the hips or legs due to running so long carrying a lot of weight)

I stretch for like 30 seconds every morning. Does that count?

 

Seriously though, apart from playing basketball, I don't engage in physical activity. I'm like those obese people driving around in their scooters... sans the blubber and the scooter.

watch the cross fit stuff. it will do you in if you aren't careful. let your training be your training. outside of base running/swimming for endurance and body weight stuff for strength. weights should not be a huge part of your routine fitness, maybe 2x per week.

All that stuff is mandated from above. The only stuff I do on my own is weightlifting, and that is mostly broken down into a three day circuit focused on bench, squat, and deadlift

That looks like the cover art of some cinemax caliber soft porn.

We went on a 5 mile run this morning to see if anybody couldn't make it in <40:00.... one of many such events that are used to "weed out" those who physically can't handle it.  I personally witnessed two guys go down with 108* core body temps.

 

Moral of the story?  Be  careful out there in this Carolina heat guys

Does playing basketball still count as exercise? Cause after hearing all these Captain America-esque workouts schedules you have,  I feel like a lazy bum.
