    I don't go gym because as a student it costs a lot!

    I brought myself a heavy punching bag and use it for a work-out about twice a week, an hour each day. Normally Wednesday evening's because the week is always stressful and Saturday mornings to get me refreshed for the weekend.

    Upper body is looking crazy atm!

    I'm going every day at the moment. I'm at uni in Sweden and the gym here is AMAZING - cost me about £120 for a 12-month membership and I can go to any of the exercises (they run all day every day and cover SO many different forms of exercise) and use any of the gym equipment.

    Yeah, so I'm trying to go a gym class every day!

    I never go, life's too short. I have to cycle several miles each day anyway though, so I probably get enough exercise.

    lol I really hope you actually no how to punch a punch bag and not just swinging crazy stupid hooks for an hour like every other moron at the gym.

    I am trying to go swiming 3 times a week (suceeding to far) and play hockey twice a week (no doing so well on that one)

    I tried going to the gym (free here) but I didn't really enjoy it, might try another time but not atm.

    I don't because it costs a lot of money.. Muscle workouts come from climbing and I cycle to lectures, go for a run on Wednesdays when I usually have spare time in the afternoon.

    lol, i make sure i wrap hands properly, not to burn myself out, get my body position right and never to punch the bag as it's swinging towards you. Im actually good mates with a national ABA champion so tend to get tips off him.

    Three/Four times a week I go quite late though, usually between 6:30 and 8:00 I'm there for around an hour and a half :p:

    OT but I am sorry:

    1. I recall hearing that if you do PG study in Sweden it is free. Is this true, and is this why you are there?

    2. Do they all speak in Swedish? Does this mean you speak Swedish?

    I go about once a week, would go more but the gym is very cramped and often has the same people in every day using the weights and bench press and grunting then on the rare chance a woman comes in they try and chat her up so its not a very good atmosphere and I prefer more personal places.
