What's Your Usual Exercise Routine?

Septimus Septimus
I tend to walk a few miles a day on my treadmill, but I'm looking to spice things up a bit. In order to do so, I thought I'd ask you guys some questions about your exercise routines, like:
What's your typical exercise routine?
What new things are you doing when you exercise?
What exercises have you hated? and...
What exercises have worked best for you?

I bought a bike a few months ago and I love it! It's fun to ride around and see different parts of town

I WISH we had a stationary bike. That is probably my FAVORITE piece of work out equipment. I can set up with my Kindle or a book or a TV show and just go for hours.

But since we don't have that, I have other methods. Normally, I try to do crunches, jumping jacks (great for the buns), squats, and lately I am trying to incorporate some weights into that. My arms are losing a lot of tone to them and I don't want to be flabby.

Also, I recently got Zumba CORE for the Wii, which I am loving. I've had it for two weeks now and I'm trying to keep up with doing it 3-4 times a week.

Depends on the season. Since it's cold, I switch between hiking and weight lifting. In the summer I tend to substitute in bike riding

30 mins on the treadmill, then use some of the weight machines.

Depends on the day. If I'm at home, I'll do a circuit training DVD, usually followed by yoga. If I'm at the gym, I'll do 30-45 minutes of cardio followed by strength training. If it's more of a rest day, I may just do some yoga.

Yoga classes a couple of days a week, and Wii yoga every evening.

My mother and I just joined a gym and we've been taking water aerobics and yoga classes. Thanks for all of the ideas, I'm totally switching up my workout now, don't want to get stuck in a rut!

Somedays I walk on the treadmill and lift dumbells. I'll walk like 10-15 minutes and then stop and go use my dumbells for a while. Then I get back on the treadmill again for 10 minutes, do weights, go back and forth until I'm too tired.

Other days I do a workout dvd in my bedroom.

Either way, loud fast music is extremely helpful even though it's not my favorite.

I've been doing different variations of planks and hula hooping for 30 minutes 3x a week.
