P90X- If you can manage it
3 days of weight training, 2-3 of cardio (HIIT, ideally), and 1 day of power-type yoga per week. I swear by it.
You can follow the P90X guides, or use your own routines

Otherwise I agree with Joe Weider- if you can only do one thing, weight train. 3-4 days a week for an hr or so will do wonders.

If you cannot manage it, then HIIT or Tabata (which are the same, really). There are books, videos, and apps to help you along.

The secret is to find something that you like enough to stick with in the long term.

I would suggest Mark Lauren's programs for the beginner to intermediate home athlete, just to get you into the habit. His videos are kind of pokey.

Yeah I pretty much never do cardio. Just a few minutes on jacob's ladder is enough for me. I just rotate between chest & back (bench press, free weights and pull ups), legs (squats) , shoulders (pull downs, chin ups, and some different specialty machines)
I take a scoop of isoflex after and follow up with lots of chicken and rice and lots of water.
It's made a significant difference for me.

Anyone know the Burpee? The most complete cardio exercice ever.




¶ More about the Burpee!

There are various types of burpees. They're certainly good at shooting up the heart rate, but they can be a killer.

They can be done with or without the jump. It's basically a squat-thrust in the middle of a squat. Some people add press-up at the descent.

Good for HIIT but not for adult beginners. Don't do the jump if your ceiling is low!

For those who cannot do the 'burpee', try the 'mountain climber' instead.

I thought this high HIIT stuff had its dangers, didn't author Douglas Adams die of a heart attack after a strenuous workout, & a TV reporter here (I forget his name) had a stroke. I've never been to a gym - is it true that once you've signed up for one, that it's nigh impossible to get out of the contract? I walk everywhere, & it seems to do it for me. I'm coming up to 66 & am in reasonably good health, I have type 2 diabetes (but then everyone I know has that), but have no symptoms & don't take any meds for it. In fact I'm going out for a walk now, to a place called Uxbridge, about 4-5 miles away, & I'll reward myself with a cappuccino when I get theresmile

This thread is for people who cares for fitness and the videos are motivation videos.
I work my body every day and, among other things, I adore smart crunches like
'mountain climber', 'switching mountain climber', 'in and out', 'plank knees to elbow'.
Fitness is stimulating and balancing: you gain energy and the love for life.

I particularly like open air activity like hiking but that is for holidays only—I enjoy the views of the great landscapes.
Keep in mind this ratio: good health is 70% in the diet and 30% in the sport.

didn't author Douglas Adams die of a heart attack after a strenuous workout

It was after a workout but it was (medically speaking) from a gradual narrowing of the arteries that lead to a heart attack.

I've always been physically active and my job keeps me on my feet (FedEx delivery), but I come and go on HIIT stuff. I used Rushfit for a good four or five months (I had to take a break after I pulled a hip flexor at work, haven't gone back to the work outs yet). Also: yoga helps a lot. I did some martial arts on and off since age nine, but stopped again about four years ago.

Yes, and Jim Fix the jogging guru died of jogging.
There are no guarantees, and you should def check with your doctor before starting a regular routine (or at least start slow).

Still, exercise will generally do you more good than harm, provided you follow safety precautions and proper form.


If you can manage walking 4-5 miles a day without incident, you are doing quite well. You could alternate 3 days of walking with three days of weight training for maximum benefit.

A gym membership can be a big deal, but not usually. At the end of your contracted period you >might< have to have your bank stop payment on recurring charge or something.
Often you can pay a year in advance for a discount, then you have he power to re-up or refuse.
