    Do you exercise and if so, how and how much? Do you have any problems related to prolonged use of computers?

    I've had to start exercising, forced by developing joint/spine/bone in general pains as well as muscle atrophy and fat buildup and I am currently doing about half an hour of mild cardio and stomach and back exercises each day.

    I'm posting this because I am well aware that many users of the site spend too much time on a computer, much like myself, and am interested in whether they've developed body issues and if so - whether or not they are doing anything to resolve them.

    If I don't exercise I generally feel like shit because of my diet and being lazy.
    Although, I've been running because I smoke and have been having a bit trouble with my chest/lungs.

    I really should exercise more lol

    I don't usually but sometimes I walk(oh yea).

    But recently I dropped from 3 'warm meals' to 1 per day. If I get hungry I will suffer or eat vegetables or fruits. No more pizza or bread.

    Making 25 push ups every day and playing football (le soccer) that's enough.

    Ive started working out lifting weights and for cardio I play DDr. Most of my exercise would consist of playing basketball as that is my favorite thing to do, but being November that is a little hard to do outside. I really gotta get a Y membership so I can play doing the winter months.

    I chop firewood every other day on weekdays and I cut long grasses (I don't know what it's called in english, those grasses that grow higher than a human) during weekends (using a grass cutter not a lawnmower) and I still have health issues.

    When I take a walk I'm occasionally subject to passively being jogged, people destroying the peace and calm of a park or
    forest track by moving their feet like drumsticks and listening to faint, but audible, music... Does that count? >.>

    A lot of sports at school, a few sit-ups at home and I usually just walk from home to school, school to home or whenever I would go, I don't like riding cars because I tend to forget where I go and which streets I go to. The rest of my time is spend with my slow but lovely PC. <3

    I always forget the turns and which streets I go to when I ride the car especially if I'm unfamiliar with the place. But if I already have walked the area before, then I'll be able to memorize places better.

    Though I don't think walking several kilometers is enough to be called an exercise though. :/

    I lift, well, since june.
    Lifting has got my ass off the computer and has allowed me to bask in aestheticness.
    Or as Zyzz called it, Aesthetic lifestyle. That dude has inspired millions of people to workout.
    Where he was famous in coining the phrase
    U mad brah?
    U jelly?
    U mirin'?
    Try joining bodybuilding.com but mind you, there are many alphas there waiting for prey to troll.
    With words such as Beta phaggots, sloots, i can clearly notice the contrast of Hiveworkshop and bodybuilding.com

    I do no exercise besides walking to desired locations that do not require a car. It is a sad regret, however where I am moving will have a built in free gym, so I plan on using that :3

    If it counts, as I kid I use to play soccer, run, jump from tree branch to tree and go after everything, I was the ULTIMATE SPEEDING/FIT MACHINE. But then I got unwell, had no friends, lost motivation, suffering from chronic fatique + put onto meds that make me really tired.

    Before I got my car/scooter I use to walk about an hour a day :eek:...My legs were actually pretty lean, now they are quick thick and jelly like considering my build.

    It is one of my greatest regrets, the reason why I fear to exercise is because I fear I will lose time doing other things, I drive to save time so I can get back to the leisure things, but I guess I have to view exercise as a leisure thing one day, otherwise I'll die unfit and unhealthy.

    When manic/unwell though, BOY, do I LOVE exercise, I would spend over an 1hr a day just running on a treadmill/bike/boxing and such, its great fun, sadly....I do not have the energy nor the mood to do those things. I am eagerly waiting to at least have the exercise bug when move, change of diet and change of life style :) I look forward to having my old amazing body, so amaze, much improve, so doge ! :)

    For me, using the computer or watching TV are actually healthy activities because I take breaks to exercise in between games, during commercial breaks, while waiting for something in a game to happen, and such.

    How much I exercise varies from day to day, the more time I spend indoors, the more time I get to exercise. That is unless I'm watching movies, then I don't take any breaks and just laze on the couch drinking irish cream and egg nog.

    Some days I exercise pretty intensely, as much as 1500 situps, 1500 jumping jacks, 500 pushups, and a total of 5,000 reps split between 5 of my favorite exercises with 200 pounds. That's only on a really good day when I'm feeling great, like a couple times a month.

    I would say on normal days I do 200-500 situps, 200-500 jumping jacks, 100-200 pushups, around 200 reps with 220 pounds on lat pulldown (like pullups, with wrists forwards), around 200 reps with 220 pounds on reverse pulldown (like pullups, with wrists facing you), around 400 reps with some exercise that I'm not sure if it has a name or not, just pulling 110 pounds per hand, alternating between one hand and the other pulling it towards me at an angle, turning my torso in the direction that I'm pulling it.

    However, that much exercise isn't really necessary. There have been times where I've been feeling lazy for a few months and just done like 2 minutes of exercise a couple times a day just to stay fit; I only do longer exercise sessions when I am trying to get stronger.

    I guess there isn't really much of a reason for it, not in any kind of health crises, just exercise to stay fit and relieve stress, I get stressed a lot and the only way for me to really let the stress out is to strain myself with exercise.

    I'm exercising about 1 hour every second day in our little gym room in the basement, and play football 3-4 times a week.
