    • Hi Maverick!
      When I was 26-30, I used to work out for 3 hours a day! I was in great shape, looked like a body builder! Unfortunately, I ruined my knees and I can no longer run or work out as I would like to. I find if I watch what I eat and do at least 20 minutes of no-impact aerobic exercise 5 days a week, I’m good. Oh, and I HAVE to have weight-training, it is so important so the muscles won’t sag-I just don’t lift as much weight these days.

      Have a great evening!

    • Wow! That’s a pretty good regimen. I used to lift a lot of weights in the early days and had 6-pack abs until I turned 35!  All gone!  I am still somewhat slender, however, I do have a problem area around my waistline and tummy.  I NEVER had a problem there before, but now I do.  Darn!!  

      I also work out about 5 days a week, but my mid-section kills me!  I think I’m just gonna do more weights like I used to.

    • Onevision,  

      Can you do pushups?  I’m so upset ‘cause I’ve been working out for over 20 years and I am only able to do 1 pushup.  That sucks!

    • We bought a water rower. I’m not very good at doing the gym thing and for less than a year at the gym, my rower is in my house. I can work out any time of the day or night and do it in my jammies.  It’s a full body workout and has less impact on my weak knees and back than anything else I’ve ever done, save swimming. When I finally buy a house, it’ll have a pool one way or another and then my workout will be complete.  As I have chronic pain (some call Fibromyalgia), exercise is essential but is also very very hard.
