    Im by no means a fitness fanatic but i do go to the gym to stay in shape. I always do a 4Km run which i try and do within 20minutes on the treadmill. Best time is 19.00 min. Was just wondering what other people do? how this compares?

    i keep fit by playing lots of vigorious sports such as gaelic football and camogie and dirt biking and i am a keen swimmer and love to canoe also i walk to and from friends houses....i live in the countryside and its a good walk to their houses and lastly i use my exercise bike just to my own pace until i feel like i have done enough .... i dont like gyms xoxo

    occasionally ill go for a run outside - jus easier going 2 gym and doing it there with the weight machines there as well. i have 2 say tho - the gym is pretty boring, especially being inside with the same view. If it wasnt for the music channels id last bout 5 min tops!

    if i do go on the tradmill (which isnt that often) i usually go timewise... say go for 20 mins. start on about 6km/h to warm up and then build it up slowly to about 11/12. i dont like the treadmill tho ufeel so constricted to go the pace it gives u even tho u set it... if u no wat i mean. u cant jus change at random with how u feel its all pushing buttons...lol.

    hiya,

    i used to be addicted to the school gym and went quite a few times a week. free weights, machines, cardio etc.

    targeted around 4k in maybe 17mins but not much better. i learnt that it's not best to set super hard goals as i did with the weights - i bought my own to use in my room and fudged up my left shoulder, putting me out of tennis for a few weeks.

    just go regularly and never overdo it, and the results will be awesome :champ:

    nothing to do with 'over-doing', it's if the skin (ie. the muscle grows and forces the skin to stretch) is stretched along way over a short period.

    to the initial poster; dunno tbh, i run outside mostly (distance and hiit) but on the treadmill i warm up at 8.8km, then up it to 15-16.
