I thought it would be nice to add something like this and coming from a former solider I take this stuff seriously. ;) Today I did some of my old Battle fitness test as a good and strength and cardio workout, that would involve in 2.5km run with webbing, 100 sit ups and 50 pushups.

That one is a good one to do also, even though I suck at chin ups though. :P

Chin up's are one of those exercises that everyone sucks at initially but with persistance and a determination you could be banging them out in no time.

We have those chains here and they're horrible as well.

@James Those 'bastard' exercises are always the ones that are best of your body. I hate chin-ups with a passion but I know they're good for you.

I hear ya guys.
A fitness guy once told me that if you could only do two exercises then chin ups/pull ups combined with Yoga would build you a great physique.

I'm with you Cole. It's the one's that we hate the most are the best for us. You wanna try Yoga. Talk about pain. :o

Hmm.. you're doing something wrong if yoga is painful.   ;)  I've been doing yoga since I was 19? I think.  Should be more in the realm of good pain. 

Okay, most of you are in pretty good shape I've noticed.  I need to make my back stronger, any tips or suggestions?  I've started hula hooping and that's helping build my core up some, but not nearly to the point I need it.  Basically I need to really strengthen that area so I don't have to ice myself down after work constantly.  Thanks!

It's my back day today!

Barbell rows, dumb bell rows, weighted cchins, wide and close grip, close grip pull downs a deadlift or two. Target the back in very specific ways and work up to some really intensity. Be satble and accurate and make every workout count.


...then a spot of boxing for me. The weekly cardio bit. ;D

When I was a stripper, during my lapdances, I would straddle my customers backwards (they were on a couch sitting forward, I was sitting on them facing away from them, with my back to them), and I wrapped my legs around their back, and did a sort of hyperextension. I had the most amazing ditch along my spine from those muscles, very well developed by that exercise. To replicate that when I didn't work at a club where that was possible, I did hyperextensions in a roman chair at the gym. It is an excellent lower-back workout, but must be done very carefully.  :)

Hmm.. you're doing something wrong if yoga is painful.   ;)  I've been doing yoga since I was 19? I think.  Should be more in the realm of good pain.  

Okay, most of you are in pretty good shape I've noticed.  I need to make my back stronger, any tips or suggestions?  I've started hula hooping and that's helping build my core up some, but not nearly to the point I need it.  Basically I need to really strengthen that area so I don't have to ice myself down after work constantly.  Thanks!

I shall define my translation of the word "Pain" with regards to Yoga.  :)
The first time I ever tried Yoga it kicked my a$$. The moves were so alien (pun intended Ms AHM) to me that it became torture. That said, I noticed that if you just "suck it up" you improve dramatically and quickly too. All of those vinyasas(sp?) are an awesome work out for the chest and ab region also.

I shall bow to Lucifers knowledge of back routines but all I do for my back exercises are pull up's, (wide, regular and close), chin up's, dumbell rows and lawnmowers. (pull the dumbells as if you are starting a lawnmower.) I would like to develope Holly's routine as it sounds much more appealing.  /rock (That emoticon has nothing to do with the paragraph. I just like it!

Thanks Lucifer I'll have to google those, I'm clueless about terms for exercises! (At least I know what to look up, yay!)  So you target something different each workout, I take it? 

Holly, that was a most impressive sounding move!  I think I do something close to that in yoga, but maybe not extended enough. 

James, thanks for explaining the pain thing to me.  I just thought you had a really bad teacher (it happens!)  When I was little I really wanted to be a dog (who doesn't?) and I used to scratch behind my ear with my foot and pant er...in front of company (my grandmother loved that! In my really frilly dress no less).  So, I guess bending in certain ways is easy for me and yoga was a pretty natural leap.  It probably does require more "sucking it up" if you can't naturally touch your foot to the top of your head, hadn't thought of that.   /&  Also has nothing to do with anything, just wanted to try that one out since we have new smiles. hehe
