Re: What sports do You play?
 
Except from drumming (which is a sports to some degree IMO) I'm doing running (with idle periods) and weight training (even more idle periods). The runs are typically 4-10 km, I'm in the process of building a minimum basis. I would extend the distance. 1-2 years ago I did some training semi-marathons in under 2 hrs. That's out of my reach ATM but I might get back there this year. My maximum distance ever run was 27 km. (I was doing athletics in my youth for several years, with a focus on distances like 800m and 1.000m).

As to weight training: I'm doing this at home, it's not a "heavy duty" training but with moderate weights. But not too often. Both weight training and running can interfere with practicing drums (as in my case, doing a lot of double bass) so I have to control the strain on my ankles/tendons.

Basketball. I have a hoop in my driveway.

I also hit Urban Active Gym about 4 days a week for cardio and weights.

I'm just about completely inactive now a days! I wrestled in high school...which was 12 years ago at this point.

I golf occasionally, but that's hardly a sport. I walk the dog and we'll occasionally make that walk a jog.

I used to compete in Soccer, Track and Field, Swimming and Diving. I have coached and refereed, Swimming, Soccer, Track and Field, Basketball, and baseball. All of this because I have a teaching degree in Physical Education. The only thing I run now is the vacuum cleaner.

It is the way I play. I can easily walk three times the length of the course when all is said and done. My kingdom for a consistent straight shot!! :-)

The first and only time I went skiing 20 years ago, I tore my knee up so badly that I have had trouble walking ever since. I can walk the dog but that's about it. Even then I have to really watch where I step. I have to stop and turn my body to change direction. I can't twist and change direction at all. I have fallen down in the grocery store just reaching for the peas! I try to get on an excercise bike, but between being busy and lazy it doesn't happen often.

Lifting weights and general exercise at the local gym 3 times a week. I just feel a heck of a lot better after training hard.

Much respect to those who play it - tho I can't understand for the life of me what the heck the rules are/strategy is.

Weight training here...

yeah i used to play rugby union at under 13 i was pretty good, did my shoulder in during a scrum though and decided it wasn't worth playing anymore haha
screw league!

i'm not surprised by how many people here lift weights, i totally agree with how it makes you feel! right now i'm on a massive new years cut after bulking, i enjoy it way too much!

I can walk a few courses around here and still do but there are a few that have very steep hills and my plantar Fascitis does not handle it that well anymore. not many people over 40 do walk those courses.

Re: What sports do You play?
 
My knees are pretty much shot these days. My Chiropractor keeps telling me she's surprised I haven't had to have replacement surgery yet on both knees, so any sports I play needs to be fairly low impact on my knees.

I like to motorcycle, bike ride, and play golf. When the knees are up for it, I love to go hiking in the mountains.

I've been playing it on and off since I was about five. I'm a forward so knowing the rules isn't entirely necessary - I just tend to run into the biggest bloke on the pitch that isn't me (it usually is me) so far I've only been sent off a few times...

I've been doing Karate for some time now and I'm almost black belt; I'll definitely have it before I leave school in another couple of years.

Volleyball, badminton, floorball and working out at gym. I've been playing volleyball now for about 12 years. It's not a long time ago since I started to play badminton, but in my humble opinion volleyball isn't that different compared to badminton because both sports require the same skills.

I can lift the hell out of some 12-ouncers.

Seriously though I work out at my crappy apartment gym although I have been slacking this week and need to get back in there. I have found that my back pain goes away when I strengthen my core.

At the moment I don't play any sports, but I love to watch soccer (football here in Portugal!) :D
My team is SC Braga, last year's Europa League finalist ;)

Cycling. Mostly endurance events. Marathon mountain bike events and 100+ mile road races on gravel roads, called gravel grinders. They have become quite popular in the rural midwest US.

I don't really do sports. I do go to the gym occasionaly though. I really need to get back to the gym; not been in about a month and have gained over 5 kilos lol.

Used to play hockey (the ball kind) and picked up drumming right after I quit.
Then I started going to the gym because I actually thought that drumming was like working out and you needed to be ripped to be a good drummer and old jazz drummers were just freaks of nature. When my teacher told me it was all tech I was already hooked and learned that going to the gym makes you feel alot better overall.

Right now , I need to add another 12-15 lbs of muscle, but I never let myself get fat in the off season, so im right about 5'7" 243 lbs and in the 10-12% Bf range. I'd like to be a solid 235-240 stage weight this year, then take a year or 2 off from competeing and get up with the bigboys over that 250 mark.
