    Lets be honest, a lot of people on here, if not 99% of the users, aren't real jocks. And half the members probably aren't even that active, even though some have amazing bodies.

    So my question is, who here really leads an active lifestyle and what do you do?

    Personally, I run 2-4 miles a day, half the time I am on a track/treadmill and the other half I am running through the woods. I also train with a boxing coach 6 days a week for 1-2 hours (1 hour if I am working that day and 2 if I am not). I also go to the driving range once a week and play 18 holes when ever I can. And when I can, which has been rare lately, I go mountain biking and kayaking.

    I jog two miles every other day. I workout twice a day everyday. I swim but I don't really measure. I just do laps for about an hour or whenever I get bored. I'm usually on stage doing some choreography someone teaches me (I suck at dancing in my opinion but no one notices lol).

    i go to the gym 3 days a week. need to start going for cardio but afraid of losing whatever weight and muscle i was able to put on though like what happened that week when the lights was out during the aftermath of hurricane sandy. icon_sad.gif it's beginning to not matter though because my endurance and breathing is suffering. was hyperventilating on wednesday doing deadlifts. icon_sad.gif tried to do 180 (not including the bar) and was trying really hard to get the form down right but my brother said that i kept on fucking it up.

    I'm in Week 9 of the RealJock Complete Strength 12-Week Workout Program. I do strength training Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. I do cardio on Wednesday and Saturday, which involves running either outside or on a treadmill. I don't consider myself very active. I have major energy problems.

    I used to workout 6 days a week for 2-3 hours, but I found this to be counterproductive. I'd do strength training for an hour or two and then do cardio. I had a hard time putting on muscle. I've found it easier to put on muscle since I've dialed back my cardio. Everybody is different though.

    I workout 6-7 days a week, 2 times of that is with my personal trainer, the other times its workouts he assigns me. Occasionally I do an extra Core-yoga workout just because I enjoy it so much.

    Otherwise I'm not active at all. Desk job, commute by car, evenings on the couch.

    I mountainbike on technical singletrack trails 3-5 days a week...recently rode 8 days in a row (2-3 hours per day).

    But that doesn't make me a real jock. it just makes me poor from spending $1000's on replacement bicycle parts and gear all the time. icon_lol.gif

    Competitive volleyball player. At least once a week throughout the year, and in the summer more if there are good people to play pick-up grass or beach vball with.

    Otherwise, I gym it a few times a week.

    I jog 3+ times a week. I admit, I'm not the best jock, but I've definitely become more active than I used to be. I'm still figuring out the best method to exercise, given my limited amount of resources. (And they've become even more limited lately. I know it's not an excuse, I'm just waiting for the summer to really kick it into overdrive)

    Climb 4 times a week, run 4 times a week (6-10 miles) and bike everywhere.

    I consider myself athletic, but not really a jock.

    I was much more athletic 6 years ago when I was putting in 100 miles a week for marathon training.

    I hit the gym 6 times a week, 2 of them with my trainer. Half strength training, the other half cardio, all assigned by PT. I'm learning the benefits of clean eating and that it truly is 80% diet. I'm not a jock (yet), but feel I'm on the correct trajectory. With a 12 month contract signed, I better be one at the end.

    But I found coming here didn't require me to be a jock, instead it offered me the support and motivation to work towards that goal. I find this community to be very real and non-judgemental. And when I feel like I'll never make it to my goals, just looking at posts and photos of men who have makes it all worthwhile.

    Now, if I could just get a date...

    I rode 75 miles today and climbed 6,700 feet, including an above-category ascent of the South Grade of Palomar Mountain. I believe my Garmin today when it says I burned 4,200 calories. It was pretty grueling.

    So yeah. Active.

    I go to the gym 5 days a week.

    I coach and play on a Men's Softball Team.

    I'm on a Dodgeball team, skip a Curling Team, play tennis and golf and try to play flag football any chance I get.

    And if I'm not playing them, I'm watching them.

    Go Real Jocks!

    Hey -- I'd go on a date with you. (Wanna take a drive up to Duluth or invite me to do vice versa?)

    ROCK CLIMBING is my number one love!!!!

    I have recently (the past two years) been exploring mtn biking, but I am not too serious about that. I love snowboarding in the winter which is cool because MI has a lot of winter typically. I suck at wakeboarding but still love to get out there and do it. As you can see in my profile pics, I am an avid KICKBALLER! Although, that is mostly an excuse to drink beer for a few hours and kick back with some good friends.

    I am have been looking for a martial arts to study recently. I wanted my knee to completely heal before I committed to the sport. I looked at aikido, but it is too passive for my tastes. I am looking at taekwondo now. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for another discipline of martial arts?

    Okay, I'm not sure if this is the same for any guys who play sports but in and out of season are different in terms of training. Not by a lot though. Outside of season, I do 4 days of cardio training. 2 of those 4 days is spent on interval training, the other two are just recovery jogging days. The other three days in the week I weight lift short amounts with a lot of weight to put on muscle. I try and play tennis as much as I can throughout the week as well.

    In season is different in terms of doing less I guess. I don't run as often but when I do is always some sort of sprints. Weight lifting is switched to high reps with low weights.

    Within all of that I do calisthenics like pushups, abs,etc. I particulary don't enjoy all the workouts I do but I love being able to do more on the tennis court so it all works out in the end.

    During the summer, I am way more active than during the academic year. All year round I work out at least three times a week (cardio and weight training). I mountain bike some weekends during the winter, and hike during the summer. I am learning how to surf, which was put on hiatus because it is an expensive sport. I jog occasionally when I walk my dog (she loves to run), or when my students are jogging I try to be a good role model for them. I'm not good, but I'll join a pickup scrimmage soccer game, as well. Yeah, I consider myself athletic, but I'm by no means an elite athlete. I guess for my age and being American, I am above average in the activity I partake.
