    I'm a pretty big believer in getting some physical exercise on a regular basis... you can get 30 minutes of exercise in without much issue just about every day if you just decide to do it (.05 Royalty to Nike).

    I used to do the Insanity workout by Beachbody but it was just too much on my knees and would cause them to swell up some so I do a low impact bike ride on a regular basis. I get the cardio I need, work some muscles pretty good and burn a bunch of calories in the process PLUS it helps clear my head.

    If you are not doing something at least a few times a week exercise wise, you could be making a mistake.

    I use an App called MapMyRide which is free which gives me all the data I care to have for what I do.

    What are you doing to take care of yourself?

    I have 6 packs on my fingers from typing if that counts. :p

    My Main Routine:

    1. Pouring heavy pots of water into a coffee maker.
    2. Clicking and scrolling my mouse vigorously.

    Hell I even reach way up and adjust my PC screen sometimes to stretch my shoulders.

    I try to workout 5 times a week in evenings for about 60-90 mins. Helps me clear mind and take break from IM :)
    Diet is very essential if you are looking to gain some muscle.

    Hmmm, I seem to be the polar opposite. I can't stand no impact stuff... I usually train about 2,5-3 hours a week in total, focusing on strength training (8-12 reps, 3 sets) and high intensity workouts.

    My favorite... and my worst enemy at the same time :D



    If you can do that workout in full, you'll have absolutely ridiculous cardio.

    I would highly recommend you take up weight training. After the age of 30 you lose 10%/of your muscle mass/decade.

    I've always been more of a runner as I feel like it's more efficient and you can get a lot more done in a lot less time.

    I can get my heart up much faster and sweat my balls off during a good run. Plus I like the fact I can run virtually anywhere when outside. I can run up the dunes, on the beach, by the river or the bay. There are so many beautiful, but rugged landscapes around here where you just can't take a bike. And what I really don't like about biking it's just hella distracting. I'm looking over my back every minute for cars, watching the curb, looking out for potholes and stones.

    TBO, I think my real issue with bikes was a somewhat traumatic experience I had when I was 16. I was on my bike riding one day, blinded by a bush and slammed by a car going 35mph. I could have died that day the way I was launched through the air and ever since then I've had an aversion to bikes. It's not that I can't ride them. It's that when I do, I'm hyper alert to EVERYTHING. Every car that passes I can't keep my eyes off them till they pass. Sometimes I'm staring so hard I actually lean and steer towards the cars lol.

    With running, it's the total opposite. I can put my head down, get in the zone and not be distracted by anything.

    Then at the gym after I finish weights it's usually 6 sets of abs, 20 mins on the elliptical and 20 on the stair climber. AFAIC, nothing's as brutal as stairs. Cause I can recall very few times where I've vomited while running / doing sprints but stairs always make my head spin like a top. :)
