I need an easy workout routine

Someone can recommend me an easy workout routine?, something that I can do at home, maybe some online program, a cheap DVD or something like that

I confess, I'm LAZY and I don't have much free time, I work all day sitting in front my PC, every f** day, I think the last time I did some exercise was like 10 year ago

I have a normal weight (5.2" - 112 lbs aprox.) but I'm in bad shape, I think I need to loose like 6 lbs and really do some exercise, no dieting because I eat healthy (I eat a lot of junk food too, but I don't think I can stop

I don't like gyms and are too expensive, I wanna try something easy first

easy and workout are not used to describe each other. if the problem is that you are short on time, that can be accommodated. but laziness cannot.

no i am not. i am telling you that if you are content being lazy and are looking for something easy, you are wasting your time. save yourself the trouble, give up now, and try to accomplish else in a different avenue of life. or perhaps improve your diet (cease eating 160 lbs mammals for breakfast), which can be accomplished without too much effort.

on the other hand, if you simply didn't articulate what you wanted to say, that is a different story. before you said you are lazy and don't have much time available, now you clarified to say that you just don't have much time available. 25 minutes of effective cardio twice a week at the proper target heart rate is enough to make good progress.

Well, how many languages do you speak?, English is not my first language, sometimes is difficult to me express my ideas in a language that I only can manage since less that a year.

And yeah cardio is good, and maybe works for most people but I need improve my flexibility and get some muscle, I not fat or overweight, I have good heart condition, I can run or doing cardio exercise but is not my thing

I don't think Vik was being rude at all. I think he was actually making a good point. Working out is work. Period.

Ok, excuse me if I think that exercise is something necessary to be more healthy, being well and no some hard work. I forget that exercise is kind of life style in America (maybe is a good thing), here in my country is not, is a big cultural difference.

Hey bitch, he's not being rude. If you want to get healthy, suck it up and do some cardio. It has nothing to do with being fucking American.

You're better off cutting junk food out. "Lazy" and "easy workout routine" don't seem to go together very well, do they?

Here is a simple program you can do at home in a short amount of time:

one hundred push ups

It gives you a plan for increasing how many push ups you can do. There is a plan for pull ups, squats, and crunches too if you are interested in those.

If you want to run, Couch to 5K is a good program for beginners.

Cool Running :: The Couch-to-5K Running Plan

Also, you can get workout videos through On Demand Cable or through satellite TV. There are different programs, depending on what you like.

Nah, junk food keep me alive, I just need some muscles, I have good metabolism.

And this thread was probably a very bad idea, note to myself: never post a thread again when you are tired and sleep deprived

If workout out was easy, everyone would do it, and everyone would be fit. Unfortunately that's not the case.

Instead of looking for something easy, think about what you like, and what's fun for you. If you like being around people, join a team sport. If you like being outside, go hiking or cycling. If you like feeling badass, start doing a martial art or krav maga (this is what I want to do so bad!). If you want to relax, take a yoga or pilates class, or buy a DVD.

For me, I find that boredom is far more a problem than "difficulty" of the workout.

please.

Vik, I do understand what you are saying, and I agree with you. Working out IS working out, and laziness doesn't fit in very well. Perhaps by "easy" she means something that doesn't require a lot of equipment, etc.

Deketa, I don't think Vik was being rude either in his first reply, but I do think people misunderstood you.

...however, it IS true that exercise is part of our culture in America more than in many other cultures.

Stay respectful to each other, and keep in mind that our forum is made of many different cultures/languages.

Yeap that part of the problem, do some exercise alone in not too much fun at least for me, but I will try.
I was in good before because I walked to my work (like 40 minutes of walking everyday) but know I work from my home and I do everything online, I go outside (to shopping, pay bills) like 3 times at the month, but i wanna try to because freelance really is hurting my health, just like this article says

Yes, something that take less time and less equipment, I don't wanna go to a gym because in this city are WAY too expensive (the YMCA is near to my home but is like a private club, expensive)

Yeah, for americans exercise is something important in my country not too much, and for that reason we have a generation of overweight children right now.


thanks for the suggestions

Junk food is definitely not necessary to keep you alive. You can have your occasional splurges to reward yourself, but you should not be content with the "I eat a lot and that's the way it's going to be" attitude. Cutting out the constant intake of junk food and instead turning it into an occasional treat during parties or get-togethers will have a big impact on your current fitness. You may be normal in weight - but it's not only about your weight - it's about your heart too.

Free time is something that you create. You are at home all day. You can make free time by waking up 15 minutes early, spending 10 less minutes eating lunch, and working 10 minutes faster. Voila, 35 minutes of time for you to do some home cardio. I'm a university student and I take 40 minutes between my classes to hit the gym a few times a week - it comes from shaving off my lunch time and lazy time. After all, exercise can be a form of (mental) relaxation.

In my case maybe a little because I need the extra sugar, for some weird reason I suffer headaches caused by low sugar or when I don't eat for a ammount of time (I'm not diabetic or something like that, I tested his blood sugar level), I eat small portions of junk food (candy, chocolate mostly) and occasionally bigger portions of potato chips for example, I know is not very healthy

Agree about the free time, I need to make more free time trying to working a little less or trying not to expend my free time searching things related with my work, I'm workaholic, I know that I need to do exercise, sleep more and make more (useful) free time, but is hard to break the rutine.

Thanks Danny for your advices

If you are a junk food junkie, there are still healthier ways to make the choice. For example, if you like potato chips, buy sweet potato chips instead. Sweet Potatoes have more nutrients than regular potatoes and try to buy the chips that are cooked in healthier oils with minimal additives (read the ingredient list). Also, nuts, while high in calories are also very healthy. Almonds are a great choice if you need to snack. If you like chocolate, choose plain dark chocolate so there is a natural antioxidant advantage to your snacking.

I too live a crazy life and found it hard to find the time to exercise. I ended up joining a fitness "boot camp". I am held accountable because it is a class/instructor format and it meets at 5:30 in the morning. I absolutely abhor getting up so early, but at 6:30 when the class is over, I realize how much it is worth it!

Thanks Dawn, I try to eat more "healthy" junk food (oxymoron) , I don't eat potatos chips or any fried products with trans fat, we don't have sweet potatos, only the regular potato chips and maybe fried bananas (from Peru) in the exotic food section of the supermarket.
I love nuts (specially peanuts and chilean nuts) but in some time of the year are hard to get, apparently my country sell all the good food to other countries, and I love dark chocolate with high % of chocolate is expensive but worth it and is healthy indeed.

Boot camp is a terrific idea, but I never heard about it here, I'm thinking in saving some money and go to a good gym ( I went to a cheap gym, a couple of year ago, and was awful, the instructors, the machines...awful! ), I like exercise like the one with you can do gym machines, I need some muscles.

I will try with some exercise at home but is hard to create an exercise rutine.

Maybe you can get a fit deck. FitDeck Exercise Playing Cards - The bodyweight cards are the basic cards and they do not require any special equipment.

I use these at home on my off days from bootcamp. In the bodyweight deck, There are 4 categories of exercises - whole body, legs, arms and I can't remember the 4th right now. Basically, I grab a few (3 - 4) cards from each of the 4 card types (they are color coded), then using a timer, I will do cardio such as running stairs for 3 - 5 minutes, then perform 1 card from each section, then cardio for another 3 - 5 minutes, another set of cards. Because you are drawing randomly, you can use the cards to create a workout that is different each time.
