    I don't work out because I hate the way my body

    looks or I want to have an ideal body. I just work out because it feels good, I like to know that I am taking care of myself. Its a great sensation to wake up sore the next day and know that I pushed my limits.

    Daily Basis

    It's what I do. I'm an athlete and I run an average of 9-11 miles every day. As a part of my warm up I do push ups and sit ups as well. Lately I've been on a diet and I've lost 5 lbs. I've been doing extra sit ups as well and Im so proud of my new slightly protruding abs that I...

    Ok so I know you aren't supposed to say this,

    but it's the truth. I work out more for my husband than for me. I mean I love how working out makes me feel, and it's good for my health and all of that, I know. And my husband has never told me I should work out or anything like that, don't get me wrong. But when I work out and...

    The personal trainer changed up my routine

    today. She used a tabata style methodology instead of straight strength training. For example, I do usually do 3 sets of squats using the smith machine. Today she cut the weight to 60% and upped the sets to 8 with no set number of reps. Each set was 20 seconds of squats and 10...

    I work out more than most,

    but not as much as some. It’s enjoyable for me and puts me in a good mood. Feeling sore from a good workout is worth it. And when I start to feel myself get stronger, or see a person checking me out for a bit longer than what is polite…THAT is what keeps me going with a...

    Getting shredded and trying to get to normal

    size. Glad I'm all natural or I think I would have been way smaller after a month of not working out.

    I do it mainly for weight loss

    but it does also make me feel good after having a good workout session. I do an hour of cardio 3-4 times a week.
