I have a hour workout using various weights which includes all the usual upper body muscle building stuffs and I've also downloaded an app for my iPhone called 'Couch to 10k' and do both of those around 3 times a week. The app's really great.

My only barrier is not always having time and sometimes I haven't eaten enough throughout the day to actually fuel myself to do everything.

But once it's all done in one day, apart from being knackered, it feels good. Like I've really achieved something.

Obviously I also go airsofting, and with my 5kg M16 and equally heavy set of magazines, gas, ammo and pistol, I probably get a lot more excersise than most other people there, because it feels like I'm giving a child a piggy back all day lol.

So guys,

Been a wee while since I actually contributed here.

I've been following a course of running first thing in a morning, followed by now cycling to and from work (1 mile run, 18 miles cycling overall), as my daily cardio.

I'm about to start making proper use of the RMR get-fit-apply guide and the suggested circuit in there. (For anyone who's read the angry thread, this guide is what made me hulk out at my printer).

How's the running going Finius? I've been improving slowly and got some proper running shoes today, much more bounce so hope to cut the time down a bit :)

I absolutely hate the idea of going to the gym or going for a run, I would much rather play a tonne of sports than just going through the monotonous routine of weight lifting

To be fair that's probably because your friends are training to increase muscle size rather than muscle strength. I find the gym can be quite helpful, particularly for strengthening legs (running doesn't really add much strength, so doesn't help when you have to try and jump a big ditch etc.) Obviously on it's own it's no good though, squatting alone isn't going to make you fit.

Well if you're looking for a bit more bounce...

Bet you'd get fit using those, and could probably knock quite a few seconds off your time :D
