Hehe haven't had gym goals for a long time. Pretty much reached the muscle mass I wanted in high school while plying baseball. I just run abt 4 miles every other day. I do about 60 pushups and situps a day. That's about it. As far as diet, rarely eat a balanced meal. Hate veggies. Guess I'll have to change at some point. I'm 26 for reference

I workout as often as possible, at least 5 days per week, but I keep things mixed so that I don't get tired of the same routines. I am always trying other plans or mountain biking.

health and fitness is my professional field (outpatient orthopedic physical therapist)

in the gym 3-5x/wk for 90-120 minutes, consisting of weights and cardio. some plyometrics and calisthencis thrown in there also.

my goal is not to get big or compete, just feel and look "healthy".

diet for the most part is pretty clean, not pure paleo or atkins per say. But very conscience to have a balanced "diet" (not a fan of that word as it implies some sort of short term meal plan and that's not what I'm on...), I'm usually on the lower side of carb intake tho (hard since I'm filipino and I think I've had rice since birth, lol).

supp wise just an isolate protien powder, sometimes I use a pre workout, but don't often as I don't want to become reliant on it....

***no matter how much time you spend in the gym/working out, if you're diet/meal plan isn't in line, you're wasting your time...just sayin.....

Traditional lifting 2-3 times per week and running 3-4 times per week. Ultimate goal is to not be a sack of shit when I'm old and akin to that is to look good naked. Knowing how to take care of yourself and actually doing it is paramount IMO.

started working a little crossfit into my repetoire. doing a mainly legs based crossfit workout once a week along with traditional heavy legs another time a week to try and shock those tiny things into doing something.

Well I am an oldie and I cardio 5 times a week and gym about that too with. Warm up of cardio and then lift weights. Had tendonitis surgery a year ago and trying to get my arm strength back up. I'm skinny at 5'5 and 112 though so was blessed with good genes.

Workout consistently 5-7 days a week, most is weight training with some conditioning/cardio thrown in there to keep the fat in check during this bulk up period.

I also meal prep and eat right now for last 6 months, noticed some good gains so far.

I can't imagine not living like this from now on.

I spend about 3 nights a week at the gym. I play tennis or racquetball once a week. The remaining nights of the week I'm typically dancing. Mostly Latin stuff, so it actually provides a decent workout without completely killing me... at least most of the time.

I can only spend so much time doing weights or cardio in the gym before it just bores me to tears. I just joined a new gym mostly because it has a full service spa in it to encourage me to go more.

5 days a week in the gym. 3days upper body, 2 days lower . Crossfit on Saturdays. And Flag football as often as I can. Just turned 32 and to be honest it's tougher these days than in my late 20's but the alternative, not working out, is far worse IMO.

i do a mix of crossfit and weights. 5 days of work 2 days off!
I use crossfit to improve stamina and endurace. I dont do crazy reps and benchmarks every workout.
Stick with heavier wieghts and less reps. and mix in plyo and rowing gymnastics and running while i lift heavy.
Also clank wieghts at a small wieghtlifting gym. (Im a meathead at heart) Love those isolation movements!
working on trying to hit 650 lb squat 700 lb deadlift and 450 bench.
not bad for an old fart at 36
