conditioning lol
I dont really have one but here is one I try to adhere to when I do decide to get off my butt and actually work out


mon, wed, fri
upper body 1 week and the next lower body

rinse repeat


I do strength training with my bowflex to condition my body
now when it comes to working out, I do a long distance run of 2 miles on the friday of the second week

I feel far too old to do much exercise, much less a 60+ hour work week tends to limit the amount of time I can devote to anything. I will say that probably the best thing I do is play drums for four hours once a week in a metal band in my area. I work in automotive so I usually get to lift a decent amount of weight every day and I'm on my feet walking for atleast twelve hours a day, usually carrying weight of some kind. Playing drums is probably what keeps me conditioned. I tell people, "Sit behind a drum set operating both feet and both arms independently for four hours and then tell me it's not a work out."
Who needs subtlety? I shoot until the woods are monochrome.

You're never too old for exercise, resistance training is great. Just get some resistance bands and do some stuff as well as the basics (push ups, sit ups, jumping jacks).

Drums is pretty great for cardio.

8:00AM-9:00AM ~ Wake up/take care of personal higiene/etc.

9:00AM-9:00PM ~ Sit behind a counter and "work"

9:00PM-2:00AM (approx.)~ Clean the house/Play with kid/Whatever extra project I thought I could handle when I started it but found out I was wrong but I am now obligated to finish/Play Video Games until I am tired enough to sleep.

2:00AM-8:00am ~ Dream about paintball!

It's not much of a training schedule but it keeps enough money in the account to buy paintballs.

I like the part about dreaming about paintball. :laugh:

Watch the end of One with the Gun (Paintball Training DVD made by Splat Magazine).
Not the best dialogue, but Max (Host) gives great tips. At the end they go over fitness, and that's pretty much what I do.

My workout routine is to try to workout 4 times a week and cardo twice a week (outside of paintball). I started this just after the new year in 08 and it's been working out quite well to get me into shape. I'm going for strength, not endurance, so I have more of a powerlifter body than a bodybuilder/pro wrestler body. There is still plenty of body fat I need to shed, but I lost 7 inches on my waist last year, so I'm doing something right.

I take Glutamine, workout vitamins, and protein shakes pre and post workout. I also take NANO Vapor pre workout now. All exercises are 2 sets to fail. Every week and a half, I move up at least 5 lbs.

Mon & Thurs:
Bench press: 400 lbs (in Jan 09 I tried a one rep max of 420 and did 4 reps. I need to try for a new 1RM soon)
Overhead Triceps extensions: 170 lbs. I can do 2 sets of 12+ reps but if I go higher in weight, I can't lift my 1st rep
Seated military press: 260 lbs
Forward flys: 35 lbs (all the flys started Jan 09)
Sideways flys: 25 lbs
Back flys: 35 lbs
Butterflys: 60 lbs

Tues & Fri:
Squats: 360 lbs
Calf raises: 430 lbs (I can do more, but I need to get more 45 lb plates. All the little 5 and 10 lbs take up too much room and I can't add more)
Leg extensions: 180 lbs
Leg Curls: 125 lbs
Preacher biceps curls: 110 lbs
Neck/shoulder shrugs: 380 lbs
Lat pulldowns: 280 lbs

Wed & Thur nights I play pickup volleyball 3 hours each night.

I'm able to run around with 8-11 full pods (I need to load 3 pods in the front of my vest to get 11 and if I feel I need to go prone, I won't load them up) with no problem. I'm not the quickest guy out there, but I move pretty fast for having half a case of paint on my back.
