Thread: Exercise neednt be boring

  1. #21


    Luckily I like exercising. Esp weight lifting. Even when i'm not at the gym I think of ways to improve my workout. I've made progress too but not as much as I want. Anyway at firt it was hard getting myself to go to the gym. Then I allocated a time to workout and even if I wasted a few minutes of that time I would still exercise for the remaining period. This way it became a habit than a task and before long I started feel shitty if I couldn't workout.

    Has it helped to lose weight or is there any other type of progress.

    This is why I like to have a trainer or someone else along with me when I train: It's becomes a competition.

    My trainer says "Do X sets of Y" and I'll think, "Yeah...I'll work the SHIT out of those sets!!!"

    It's becomes a personal game of "How many of his/her hoops can I jump through?" and I always feel an immense set of pride when I can pull it all off.

    I do vinyasa yoga, which is fast-paced and meant to give a cardio workout. I was underweight when I started practicing though, so for me, it's been helpful in building strength, endurance, balance, and flexibility. I do burn about 450 calories for every hour-long class, though, so it could definitely help someone lose weight if that were their goal.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I am never bored exercising for I exercise for emotional and spiritual reasons. So I am constantly aware of how a particular exercise is affecting my feelings and thoughts. How can I be bored? I would have to be bored with my feelings and thoughts.
    There is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing.
