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.

Not so much of a sport, but I play me the Hell out of some disc golf.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
