    Can't say i agree with the comment that Pull ups are bad for your elbows.
    I had chronic golfers elbow in both arms for the best part of 3 years, i was often in agony because of it. I took up a Calisthenic focused regime, plenty of pull up variations, bar work, and within 4 weeks i was completely healed. Ive not had any further issues a year since.
    You would have to bang out some really horrific form to incur any damage from pull ups, same for any exercise really.

    ^ Yep. It's funny to see some people come out with claptrap like "running is bad for your knees" and "sit ups are bad for your neck".

    I did 200 sit ups yesterday. I used my stomach muscles, as you do. "Neck ups" might be different though.

    And I ran about 2000 miles in 2013. Not even a single twinge anywhere near my knees - then or since. Of course, some people who run might have issues with their knees, but to make an absolute statement that "running is bad for your knees" is, frankly, a wee bit silly.

    You are not supposed to run with Withnall's cone up your bottom, Mr Slap!




    (That's what my doctor told me, anyway).

    I was told as long as you eat a sufficient quota of baked beans prior to sticking it up your shatter, it would be a boon when training.

    ^ yes, not enough though.

    Unlike cycling, running really challenges one's botty.

    Brisk walking and squats do better, as does exercycle.

    Running on concrete/asphalt/pavement jars every bone from your feet to your head, resulting in spinal compression and stuffed ankles, knees and hips.

    Take your exercises easily, don't pound your body out of shape, and don't indulge in carbs!

    1000 miles or so a year brisk walking (2 miles or so a day) is far better for you if you just want to maintain body weight and keep fat down.

    Better yet, reduce your calorie intake.

    My standard walks are around two miles in each direction per day (2000 miles brisk walking per year average), so all done in 80 mins or so per day

    Horses for courses, ENT. Whatever works for you. And whatever you (one) can fit into your (one's) life and lifestyle.

    I lost weight that year and I enjoyed the running, especially as I got fitter and faster. So I achieved my aims.

    Running, cycling and swimming three times a week.

    I'm not sure why but this is the current state of play.

    If you're physically able, do this. Or a similar version thereof.

    Monday: Easy cycle - 30 miles, 15 each way to work and back

    Tuesday: Gym: tempo 5km run; 2km row - hard; spin bike intervals - 10km total

    This is guaranteed to result in a fucking unsociable amount of sweat - the toxins positively cascade from every pore.

    Wednesday: Steady run - 6-8 miles, hilly

    Thursday: Run, hill repeat intervals - going into the red on the ascents recovering down hill. About five miles and six efforts in total.

    Massive fucking endorphin hit. You buzz off that shit for an hour or two.

    Friday: Steady 30 mile cycle, 15 miles each way to work and back.

    Saturday: Tempo 25-30 mile cycle, hard effort for the duration.

    Sunday: Long steady run - between 10-20 miles.

    4 x 3 mile @ 15 mins/mile mile brisk walks with hand grips + 2 x 2 mile @ 15 min/mile brisk walks (no grips) = 4 hrs brisk walking.
    0.5 hr per day resistance straps, push ups, squats, and flies. = 3.5 hrs
    2hrs digging the garden, turning compost.
    2 x2 hrs MA training.=4 hrs
    Total = 13.5 hrs this last week

    I've just been for a run. I felt crap. Thought I'd try a bit of tempo, just a bit because I'm not in very good shape at the moment. Anyway, gave up on the tempo after 100m.

    Fook it. Never wanted to be a gazelle anyway.

    Walking,...carrying loads, different muscles again.
    Hot shower to soften the back, shoulder and neck muscles, drank hot gymnema tea to relax the muscles.
    Then half an hour of yoga.
    After my (light) evening meal, I'll do some reps of lifts and flies, push ups, squats and resistance bands before another hot shower, then more gymnema with lobelia and cinnamon tea.....then sleep...nicely tuckered out.
