RE: Atheists who work out
My recent workouts have consisted almost entirely of lifting glasses of eggnog and fistfuls of cookies. Laugh out load

90 minutes yoga--nice flow with lots of different poses. Also went for a run with one of my dogs. A little bit of light rain--I love running in that Smile

RE: Atheists who work out
My favorite strength exercise to do is a farmer carry. I love the burn! One arm (or both, if you have the equipment) for a minute and thirty seconds to two minutes, then the other. 60 bodyweight squats afterward. Repeat. Helps you develop crazy grip and forearm strength!

I'm only using a 50 lb. dumbbell for now, but I want to eventually accustom myself to 70 and 90 and beyond in the future.

It probably sounds silly, but when I have kids I want to be one of those dads that can pick up their kids with their forearms. When I was little, I'd always grab one of my dad's forearms and he'd lift me up. Thought he was superman! I want to do stuff like that with my future kids.

I don't like farmer's walks...lol But, they are useful for improving grip that's for sure. Welcome to our thread, by the way. Big GrinHeart

RE: Atheists who work out
Deidre, the welcome is much appreciated! Big Grin

The game console, the Xbox One, I have the kinect sensor. My favorite app, and most used thing on the console itself, is Xbox Fitness. The MOSSA Fight series whips your ass! It's an excellent cardio/HIIT workout. It's around 32 minutes and it works your whole body. Love it. The Turbofire Beach Body workout is on point, too, so much so that I bought it within the app (Xbox Fitness is a free app, and the MOSSA Fight series is free, but there are workouts that need to be bought, which I don't do, with the exception being the Turbofire Beach Body workout since it's so intense).

What Xbox Fitness does is, via the kinect sensor, it records your movements and how well you do them, and you get a score at the end of the workout (1-5 stars and a number). You earn badges and achievements (FitPoints) along the way. It's a pretty nice incentive and cool motivator to keep you going.

I'd utilize more of the workouts on Xbox Fitness if I had more room.

Another game, developed by Ubisoft, called "Shape Up", is also pretty fun.

It does things similar to Xbox Fitness. It will score your workouts, which are typically "physical games". Oftentimes you can compete against yourself, as in a past score, which is pretty damn fun. I like the "Squat to the Moon" (self explanatory) challenge and some of the boxing ones. There's some pushup ones that'd be better if my kinect sensor would actually detect things correctly.
