Working out (exercise) 2

See I'm not sure how to rate this. I feel better if I do about 30 minutes of working out, 6 times a week. That's really the magic number for me. I've spent time at gyms, had memberships for years, had trainers...I've gotten in really good shape at times, and just sort of maintained at other times. But the past few years I've been doing my own thing at home. I bought some free weights and a bench, then left them at our house, where I have a garage. So at the condo, now I just have a bunch of mats and pull-up bar. I've been doing a series of kenpo kicks and strikes, just whatever I feel like, and about 100 pushups, 300 situps and 30 pullups. This has me more or less maintaining, I'm not getting in great shape but it's free, it's pretty convenient, and it has some elements of anaerobic along with the aerobic exercise. That being said I just can't say it's an addiction. If I miss it for a few days or even a couple weeks, I'm not jonesing for it. But I never really do miss it for that long, unless I'm sick. Working out isn't a bad thing, but I'm not addicted to it...so do I still give it two stars for a "bad" addiction? True dilemma.

At this time strange or not strange I am not addicted to exercise. In fact I am as far from having an exercise addiction as you can get. I might have to give it a try but I can almost bet I won't get addicted to it.

Not strange either, in my opinion, unless you really take it to an unhealthy extreme.

I am a wee bit addicted to running, biking, swimming and kayaking and....at least it's healthy here. I don't get all out of sorts if I miss a day though. Want to try Tough Mudder but have a bit of a dislike for electricity of any kind.

I am not afflicted by such an addiction. While I do casually indulge, I assure that I can quit at any time.

Ahh, Big Willie from back in the Jarhead days. Two hours a day MINIMUM at the gym and the silly bastard lost track of his neck sometime during our time at Stinger School. I didn't stand a fucking chance that time he ambushed me in the hall and put me in a blood choke... man am I glad we're friends and he was just fuckin' around.

Exercise is best done, at least in my world, by sitting on the couch and watching a video of some very 'fit' men and women pumping iron, running in place and working up a sweat.

You might loose weight this way by imagining YOU are doing the exercise with them, because the brain is most calorie-sucking organ in the body--it requries a lot of energy to run it--and so if you really imagine you are exercising with all your mental might--you just might loose some poundage. It will make your head hotter so remember to keep an ice pack nearby to cool your brain cells down.
If they get over-heated you may burn a fuse, and need a brain-transplant, which can be expensive. I myself have had 3 brain transplants because I blow a brain fuse all the time by being too intense as I imagine things--like women exercising in sports bras, or men in bikini underpants. Either one will get my brain fuses burning.

So be careful. And hope you loose weight the easy way!

addiction is a physical and/or psychological dependence but is that necessarily a bad thing if the addiction is something that benefits you? i would say if it negatively affects your life and the lives of those around you would make it a bad thing. even though exercise is good for your physical and mental health if done the right way. some of these stars work hard to keep the bodies they have and those that compete in marathons put in a lot of hard work.

Not really a "addiction" to me IF people don't take it excessively like i dont think nothing of sumone going to the gym a few times a week, thats alright, and not really a problem HOWEVER when people get to the point of going to the gym a few times a DAY then i consider that a little weird and i think the person maybe addicted, especially if thats all the person talks, cares, or thinks about i think the person may need to lay back and relax his exercising habits, but this is just my opinion

I'm not addicted to exercise and there are many flavors of exercise I downright hate (running, skiing, and rock climbing are too much like work) But I like to walk...fast... especially when the view and weather are good. I like to use my treadmill while listening to great music. And I love to dance. Is dancing one of the categories here? Because that's the one kind of exercise I've always been addicted to. I'm not all that young anymore, but I can literally dance all night.

Yes its sooo strange to want to look good and feel good! I guess this can become an addiction I mean my god it seems these days everything can be an addiction! but I have never had this addiction..its hard enough for me to roll out of bed at 630 and get on the treadmill.

I don't think jogging is helping me stay in shape at all. Last night, I was breathing so hard when I got to the McDonalds, I could hardly eat my double quarter pounder with cheese...

I think it definitely can become a problem if a person overdoes it. A little bit of exercise never hurt anyone that doesn't have an underlying health problem. I think before anybody starts any kind of a workout program, they should consult their doctor beforehand to see if they're even able to do it.

In Castlebees terms,I'm glad I only have a "habit".Especially in power building sports (weight training),it's counter-productive to over train.There are exercise addicts,and while some of them may look good,others have that strange over-exercised look.Boney with tone?

Yes, because wanting to stay strong, fast, and healthy definitely falls within the realm of "strange". It can be an addiction, but it sure beats snorting cocaine during "coffee breaks".
