I can do both.
Favorite Genres
My favourite genre is anything spooky. Horror, paranormal, supernatural and anything weird and unusual. The more obscure it is the better.

I also love sci-fi worlds and creating characters in such worlds. I like space operas and fandoms related to sci-fi.

Romance is always an option for me.

Modern and historical works for me. Placing a plot in 1960-99 always makes it better.
Genre You DON'T Like
Not interested in anything remotely anime related.

I don't really enjoy medieval or fantasy. The most fantasy I'll get is lowkey in slice of life.

Things need to have more than just one starting plot point. I don't enjoy it when things are just focused on the romantic journey of two characters.

Exercise! Awesome in Theory, Awful in practice.

How many of you workout? :D

If you do work out - Is it gym time or team sports? Do you enjoy it? Why do you do it?

If you don't really - Why don't you? Do you want to? Why or why not?

I personally have a weekly work out schedule: Tuesday and Friday is gym time, Thursday and Sunday mornings are running and Thursday is swim night. I really enjoy running, the other two are just to keep me in shape and strong. I run because it's fun and gives my brain all the good shit it needs to work better!

So, tell me about your work out, or lack of one! :3​

I don't. Well, not in the traditional sense of 'I'm going to exercise for a while now'.

I get my exercise in while getting shit done. I don't walk on a treadmill, I walk from an early bus stop to work/home. I don't lift weights, I carry heavy groceries home from the store, etc. I take the stairs instead of the elevator, I wash my laundry by hand instead of sitting on the machine, I use my pokewalker instead of grinding random encounters.

Mostly I just watch what I eat and don't sit on my ass all day

Generally once every two weeks I just go to the gym with a family member and work out for about 2-3 hours.

I try to run daily (minimum 4 times a week), but given my health problems, it's a coin toss if I'm actually feeling well enough to do it.

Yay.

I just got back into the gym after a long hiatus, and have starting following my old routine again. I go to the gym about six days a week: I go three times in a row with the fourth day off for rest. I do about a mile run before my workout, and plan to build that up to a two mile run every other day with a decent time.

All Supersets:

Chest / Biceps

Dumbell Curl
Ez Bar CUrl
Hammer Curl
Dumbell Press
Machine Pec Flys
Cable Crossovers
Forearms

Tricep / Back / Shoulder

Overhead Press
Nosebusters
Closegrip Press
Pulldowns
Rows
Rev Flys
Shoulder Shrugs
Aarnold Press

Legs

Parallel Squat
Deadlift
Forward Lunge
Machine Leg press
Glute / Hamstring Extensions
Calf Raise
Calf Press

I don't do abs though I really should. I aim for 10 reps at 4 sets for the larger muscle groups and only 3 for the smaller. Usually if I actually hit 10 reps I up the weight a bit until I can barely get 6 good reps. Because all my exercises are super sets I can usually get in and out of the gym in around 45 minutes. I tried pairing triceps and chest once because the exercises are similar but I found when I do that my triceps are too tired from the chest exercises to get a decent workout.

I don't. I just walk everywhere that I can walk and otherwise take the bus or train for longer distances. Same as Minibit mentioned, I take the stairs as well instead of the elevators if the option is available and generally try to move around as much as I can between the many hours of sitting still focussing on something.

So no. I don't work out. I'm terrible lazy and horribly untalented (and dangerous) at sports anyway. So I'm better off running and walking around. My brother claims he works out by waking up though. So if that may count?

5x5 sets of squats

Oats immediately after followed by 6 hours of mirror posing.

I've been stalling on my exercise because I haven't been able to use my fucking arms because of my skin condition.

I start out with 1 minute plank, 1 minute side-plank each side, 1 minute reverse plank. I also do 1 minute L-sits on the floor. This followed by 5 minutes of practicing my handstand.

After that, I do 1x12 pushups before following it with plyo pushups and archer pushups, as well as pseudo-planche pushups. I follow this up with wall assisted handstand pushups. I'm not good at those yet.

The following day, I'll do the planks, L-sit and handstand practice followed by 2x50 hindu squats or plyo squats or jumping split-squats or assisted pistol squats. I then do 3x8 pull-ups or chin-ups. This followed by bodyweight rows.

For cardio, I run. I used to row and swim but I have no pool or row machine due to not having a gym membership anymore.

I chase and catch toddlers running away from the program. One in particular.

I also walk 4 miles every day, to and back from work. Then i clean and maybe when it gets cool enough I will go out on a run/hobble.

Blox Blox please respond!!


I alternate three days in the week working Bench Presses, Overhead Presses, Deadlifts, Squats, Barbell Rows-- all with the barbell. I do various curls with dumbbells, along with lunges and if I'm feeling cheeky, farmer walks.

I actually don't go to the gym, just do martial arts practice. I enjoy it and do it because I enjoy it.

I don't work out in the traditional sense. I do try to walk around the neighborhood and surrounding areas though.

The hotter the weather, the less likely I will be exercising, opting instead for the sauna that is my house, sans air conditioner.

I have a gym near where I work. I have one about 1/2 mile from the house, and I have the exercise equipment in my house as well.



3 Days a week Cardio. Usually on the exercise bike 12.15 miles in 30 minutes and then 15 minutes at a semi-easier pace.

3 Days a week Weight Training with my Bowflex or at the gym. 45 minutes

1 Day a week taking care of the yard 1 hour. If the yard doesn't need any work then I will figure out which one (cardio/weight) I feel more like doing.



The bike will be replaced by running in August once I get the go ahead to start running again. I was up to 7 miles in less than 45 minutes, but tore up my shins in the process by doing too much too soon. Now I have been told start out at 3.5 miles and build up gradually.

I do bodyweight exercises twice a day to keep myself from devolving too far these days. Nothing too fancy as my back and knees suck, but it can basically be summarized to lots of pushups, planks, and some shadowboxing.

I forgot the exact words of a /fit/ poster on 4chan, but it was something along the lines that even a stupid Batman workout routine was better than sitting on your ass all day doing nothing. I realize my workouts are pretty plebtier compared to some people, but until I can arse myself to do something greater it's better than nothing.

I go everywhere by bike. I admit I've been slacking on everything else lately, though. Maybe now I've got more spare time I'll get a new routine in place.
