I need some help getting myself into an exercise routine. I've been working on my diet for the last year and now that I have that in line, the next thing is exercise. I'm not so much wanting to exercise for weight loss or for body image reason,... (more)

I'm a big fan of Mark Sisson's approach to exercise (see below). I think it's a really "less is more" kind of thing. You need to be active in general (as much low and slow as you can do), but what you have to do specifically as "exercise" is a lot... (more)

Do yourself a favor and head over to Mark's Daily Apple and get his free fitness e-book. I think a good weight loss plan involves all three: weights, intervals, and lots of low and slow. Four days of elliptical and swim sprints sounds like... (more)

What type of exercise are people doing out there? I seem to read so many blogs by Cross Fit enthusiasts. I don't have the budget for that at all.

For me, mostly walking. I like MDA's suggestion of a lot of walking/hiking, lift heavy things once or twice per week and sprints once per week. I'm just not up to more than walking and some flights of stairs at the moment. Crossfit is fun, but... (more)

I would say it's cortisol. Cortisol levels rise and then fall an hour or two after exercise. I've experienced the same thing. Hour or two of sitting around, and it goes away after.

If you're running 50 miles per week, that translates to 8.3 miles per day, assuming you rest 1 day per week. 8.3 miles per day is 33.3 times around a quarter mile track. It's an endurance distance. If you try to run fast, you'll suffer later. ... (more)
