What kind of exercise do you do besides DailyBurn?

  • I was just wondering. Do you guys exercise besides DailyBurn? And, if yes, what do you do?

    I used to take spinning classes but lately I don't have much time because my job is crazy. And those weeks I really like DailyBurn because I can do it at home whenever I want to.

    I mix my DailyBurn up with some Circuit Classes I've organised here at work (I work/live on an iron ore mine site 11 days and home 3 days). I also am running for a 12km run coming up next month (2 days after my 50th b-day, so it's important to me I do well and prove to myself I'm not old *lol*). Between circuits and running, DB has been cut back, but I still do the odd video in my room. After the end of August I'll ramp up the DB again.

    DB is my primary method M-F and sometimes on the weekend, but love getting outdoors to play soccer, run sprints, exercise at the kids playground (when they are not there of course :) and walking/biking/hiking or just climbing stuff.

    Right now Daily Burn is my only source of workouts. I just do not have time to get to my gym. The only pieces I really miss are the treadmill and my yoga instructor.

    I like friendly competition, so I play soccer, volleyball and flag football outside of Daily Burn. I find that variety is what keeps me going. If it's fun, work becomes play, and I can't get enough of it.

    You can also do what this guy does:

    I enjoy running and volleyball. My whole objective when I joined DB was to finally have a workout that was fun and something I actually enjoyed doing. I find that working out 4 days a week on Daily Burn (DB) and taking the weekend to recharge and recover has worked for me. So I have added to that recovery time one fun day. Yep it's like a cheat day for working out. I am allowed to play any game I want or if I just want to spend the day reading a book! It's my Fun workout day.....just a thought.

      Good for you! Just don't push too hard and burn out, it's all about lifestyle changes, not short term goals.

    I do DB Monday to Friday (am) and I've just started a Wii Fit 30 day challange. Just 30 mins cardio each evening. I'm keen to lose the last 7lbs of fat and I hoping this little extra 30 mins will do it!

    I do kettlebell workouts almost exclusively (DVD's by Steve Cotter http://fullkontact.com/ and workout "programs" by Geoff Neupert http://chasingstrength.com/ , but I also have/use a pull-up bar, Perfect Push-Up V2's, dumb-bells and a jump rope that I use in conjunction w/that. I'd love to do CrossFit, but the nearest box is too far away, their schedule doesn't jive w/mine and it's WAY expensive ($125 a month for an un-limited membership).

    I run about 3 times a week, try to get some biking in, and I do yoga daily. The videos on this site have been great to add some additional toning exercises and switch things up a bit.
