Probably making rude gestures at you. Rude, but not so rude as to impinge upon the CoC.

I play high-level competitive ultimate frisbee, soccer, and volleyball, and I run track as well. My distances are the 400m and 800m, although I have a pretty good 200m time too.

I used to play American Football, during which time I lifted weights, ran, and otherwise performed strenuous physical activities. Of course, that was almost a year ago, and I've now gotten to the point where I'm struggling to eke out a mile and a half a day to get my physique under control. C'est la vie, how the mighty have fallen, and so on, and so forth.

I throw a shotput. That's right. A big metal ball. 12 pounds, three times. But you wouldn't believe the training that we do just to gain half a foot.

I also used to do Karate, but gave it up. Then again, it seems to have helped my twitch speeds and pivoting skills for shotput. So I'm overall happy I took it up, even though I quit.

I'm at a low level of activity at the moment. I play soccer, but only in the fall. And I do a lot of hiking, but mostly in the summer. So at the moment, all I do is some walking.

Dikiyoba.

You are too old, fecund, and Republican for me to want to hear about your kegels. :(

27 is too old? :confused:

Besides, being fecund is the main reason I do kegels. Have to at least try to get back in shape.

ps. Since you don't want to hear about it, you probably should't read this post.

I run 2 km once a week. Takes me about 9 min, to finish. I run on a road so no easy track running. I play goal for soccer, by soccer I mean the real kind in a gym with walls and more contact. I also play goal in road hockey, and ice hockey.

Oh and 100m I have a time of 12.50 seconds, I now it sounds lame compared to the record holders at 9 sec.

I used to swim and play basketball. Now, I get barely any exercise, except for lots of walking. Oh, I'm also decent at darts, not sure if that counts.

I'm not much if a geek, but I used to do Taekwon Do. When I get my job I may start up Muay Thai boxing.

I used to do Judo but gave it up when I realised that it wasn't doing me that much good. Then again in one year I put on 15kgs of muscle mass doing it. I really want to get into street fighting but unfortunitly it isn't all that easy to get into and the training is intense. And me being really lazy and intense training doesn't really seem that fun.

33 lbs. of muscle mass in one year from Judo? Sure... :rolleyes:

Are you sure it wasn't also because you grew three inches as well, or some other life-developmental change was occurring? Thirty pounds is a lot of muscle mass to put on in one year.

If the word "intense" ever fails to appeal to you, I doubt that street fighting is really for you. I'd also guess that Spiderweb and street fighting are mutually exclusive.

I know a guy who replaced 10kg of fat with muscle after only half a year of karate.

I tend to just walk. Long walks around my town are rather enjoyable, and walks around my college campus are even better. That said, I have no bike right now (I had a rental for the last school year), but I used to bike... occasionally.

I might take up running this summer, but St. Louis humidity tends to drain the life out of you pretty quickly.

Dammit get those functional groups out of my face. I'm done with Organic chem, DONE! :cool:

Nooo! Aldol condensations, Brominations and Hydrogenations ahh!

BTW OChem was easy but very gey.

Edit: It's beyond me why a basball player would need steriods. I mean you don't even do anything physical in that game.

So you can break the record held by your godfather, of course!

(Bonds is playing half-injured at this point... he's pretty much dead weight in the outfield)

ESPN showed his (Barry Bonds) first homerun (June 1986) when he hit # 714. He was a skinny kid whooping it up when he hit that ball. Now, 20 years later, he is still playing ball and still happy as a clam to be able to do it. He is playing hurt because it does hurt to play that many years in the same sport. Hell, it would hurt to be a carpenter for twenty years and that is just as physical.

Whether or not he has taken steroids, hitting the ball that many times, that far, is a remarkable achievement. Having a career last as long as his, is a remarkable achievement. If there is an issue of children thinking that they can be better players if they take steroids, please persuade them otherwise. All it takes is practice. After all, I can pop it out of the park too, and I've never even trained, never mind taken the juice.

Our Judo trainer dude (I never bothered to learn the names of anything the guy was telling me) was always pissed off at me because I failed to learn any Japanese words or anything and just gave English terms for everything. This meant that the guy was constantly giving me extra exercise as punishment so I was the fittest one at the club. It doesn't help that I was really scrawney and had no muscle when I started, so I was only 45kgs to begin with.

Hmm. I think maybe "growing up" had a bit more to do with the weight gain - I know precious few mature adult males under 100 lbs.!
