How many of you Warriors exercise?

by runfast 246 replies
If you want to improve your IM start exercising. (it worked for me)
  • Start by doing xx pushups before you start your computer.
  • Set the timer for 20 min and do another xx.
Start out slowly but you'll be amazed by 2 things.
  1. How quick that timer rings.
  2. How energized you'll feel.
Remember it doesn't take that much time. It takes discipline.
If fact I used to have my Blackberry programmed to remind/motivate me.

Here is my schedule: These numbers didn't happen overnight. I built myself up to it.
  • Monday: 200 pushups (10 sets of 20 pushups)
  • Tuesday: 100 chinups (10 sets of 10 chinups)
  • Wednesday: rest
  • Thursday: 200 pushups (10 sets of 20 pushups)
  • Friday: 100 chinups (10 sets of 10 chinups)
  • Satureday: rest
  • Sunday: rest
Remember it doesn't have to be pushups or chinups. Just something that will cause your heart rate to increase which will supply your brain with more "energy" to make money online....

    that's a very good plan. I find push ups pretty hard to do, especially if you do them the correct way, all the way down and up. When i'm on the comp I do get pretty lazy.. so i do need to generate some energy somehow to push myself to do these type of exercise. The 20 minute intervals might work for me i'll try that tonight.

    Nice idea. I do exercises regularly but i don't do pushups. I just try to do some other exercises to keep myself fit and to maintain my body texture. I walk 30-45 minutes daily as well and that is the most important thing to do specially before dinner or early in the morning on a clean grass
    I am a full time internet worker so i spend more thn 12+ hours on pc so that is the main problem with me because i am now getting a fat belly so just trying to control it before its too late
    Thanks

    Great question. I exercise daily. It definitely helps me out. You have a great system. I have to do in the morning and sometimes in the evening (before I am consumed w/ the business day). I do stretch while working on the net (relieves some stress).

    Interesting! I do 200 pushups per day. 100 in the morning when I wake up, and 100 before I sleep.

      Do you do it all at once? That is very hard. I used do to that but not anymore....
      Ever tried doing this? I have 2 litte girls ages 5 and 3. I like to do 10 pushups with them on my back. I figure if I do this every day till they turn 18 years old I should be pretty tough.... Of course, my wife says it won't be long till they think that it's not fun anymore.

      Keep it up! Exercising physically and mentally will avoid a lot of headaches later in life.

    Keeping fit and active is VERY important to your productivity.

    People may not see it, but without your body optimized, everything that you try to do with it will be sluggished. Spending an hour or 2 a day exercising may seem like "wasted time" but it may lead up to 10+ hours of more productivity then without the benefits that come from a healthy body.

    Also remember, you are what you eat, it's important to fuel your body with good healthy foods instead of sugary processed garbage.

    It's a good idea to get out of your chair and do something every 15-30 minutes to prevent back pain, whether it be stretching, push-ups, chin-ups, walking, dancing etc.

      I do not own a car. I walk to everywhere I go and use Public Transport to everywhere distant. All kinds of public transport, bus, boat, rail and air.

      I walk a lot. I used to run long distances but my frail health does not allow me to do it at the moment. I used to sail and even race boats but I don't go out sailing/racing with the sailing club at the moment for the same reason.

      No TV in my place. Only one computer and books so no danger of becoming a couch potato.

      I am a full vegetarian. No fast foods or anything GM. I buy from open air markets and from small production only. I avoid industrial and large chain supermarkets. Never smoked. I avoid prescription and other drugs.

      I can't always buy organic food as it costs too much in my part of the world.

    I picked up the Ultimate New York Body Plan by David Kirsch and
    he details the fastest way to lose weight and it's pretty intense.

    It's using weights, a stability ball and medicine ball...cardio strength
    training for 45 min and then a cardio workout for 45min.

    You've got to set aside 1 1/2 hours to see results and work out every
    day. I start tomorrow! If nothing else I'll simply feel better!

    Remember Commitment comes before Equipment. Don't buy books, weights, and etc. till you are committed to follow through. Setup a checklist/chart by your computer and follow it. Keep it simple and start slowly. If you follow through then go out and buy that book.
    My wife bought me the Perfect Pushup after over a year of watching me do pushup using dumb bells as handles. It meant a lot to me because I was committed to doing it and she got something to keep me inspired to keep going.

    Good Luck to those that are starting out...exercise is a good habit to have but one of the hardest ones to maintain.

      I love that phrase! It's true, you don't need a ton of equipment to get your heart pumping. Running, jump rope, pushups and situps is how a lot of boxers train. Well, and hitting the bag too!

      This is a great post to remind us all to get up from our computers and keep physically fit. It also comes at a great time of year when it's dark and cold and sometimes easier to hibernate and eat holiday cookies!

      Thanks for the advice!

    About 8 months ago I started a program where I do weight training 3 times per week and cardio 3 times per week. I do extra ab work on the weight training day in the evenings. My workouts are first thing in the morning.

    I'm more productive and have more energy. I highly recommend exercise to everyone!

    I run, and I do notice that when I start the day with a good run with my dog, I'm lots more productive and quicker to get moving on a project.

    I do some kind of exercise everyday, it gives me more energy.

    I just went 3 miles on the Treadmill, just so I could come upstairs and answer "Yes".

    Today has been a rough day and I really needed the stress release and emotional boost that I always get for running. So a big THANK YOU from me to you for this thread that sent me lacing up my shoes.

    I love lifting weights. Deadlift is my favourite lift (I'm weak as though, haha).

    Thats a good thread started,i run for 3 kms every day and do three sets of push ups by keeping my hands apart.first one 22 repeats,second one again 22 repeats and last one 15 repeats.

    Will some body guide me on what should be ideal interval between two sets and what are the exact benefits of push ups?If some body could throw some light on different types of push ups and how they benefit us would be great!

      I will surely mention an Exercise Ball. It cost roughly $10 to own and you can do so many exercises for different parts of your body using only one $10 or less ball.

      I usually visit YouTube to find new videos. Many people are coming out with new ways of using an exercise ball. That thing is useful.

      So go ahead guys, If you don't have your ball, buy it. It is easy to use and works wonders

      Pushups:
      Hands placed wide apart builds the chest
      Hands placed close together builds triceps
      I place my hands just outside my shoulders
      Others have said that I have perfect six pack abs... Guess what? I never do situps. I can only guess that I got this by doing chin-ups and pushup alone. So I think that doing pushups/chinup exercises your whole upper body. As for your legs...run...runfast...

    Jogging is something you simply
    can't afford not to do.

    clears your mind better than meditation.
