What have you stuck with?

I was just thinking today how long I've been doing Essentrics. It was probably 2005 that I bought my first dvds. I've been teaching since 2015. It's the longest I've stuck with anything.

I've been doing my Essentrics, Ellen, and walking combo for a long time. I do other workouts occasionally, but these are things I do the most.

What works for you?

I've been doing Cathe Friedrich since the 90s. I don't do her cardio anymore, just her upper body strength. I also still do some Firms now and then. I've also been doing Ellen for years. Also walking and Essentrics regularly now. And some Kelly Coffey-Meyer upper body strength more recently.

I only ever stuck with The Firm 90-Day, for 60 days. Other than that, I get three weeks at most with a planned rotation before my over-sized collection cons me into switching to something else.

Tomorrow I’m starting the 90-day Met-Rx 180 rotation, Option 1. Just as I have multiple times before, I’m telling myself that I will stick this one out until the end.

I almost started Metrx 180 this week. I went with my ole fave, CLX, since I've been away from weights for more than 6 months and it has few sets. I completed 2 full rotations of Metrx in 2020. If I did it again, I'd modify phase 2-3 as it was just way too much abs and cardio training, in which my knees paid dearly for it. They would ache during sleep. The pain went away after finishing the rotation.

I still love weight lifting, mostly with Margaret Richard. I also enjoy barre, Classical Stretch/Essentrics and pilates. I've done more outdoor walking in the last couple of years since we moved to an area that doesn't have bear and moose. As I've aged, I've become much more interested in doing Yin Yoga.

I was doing daily yoga. Then I started doing pilates daily 2 years ago. My love and appreciation of pilates has grown, yoga has taken on a different purpose in my workouts as I now use it as a cooldown. I do cardio, strength, and am a fair weather runner. I started exercising routinely after buff boy was born - he just turned 17.

I finished the CLX rotation a few weeks ago. I loved it! After that I did 3 weeks of Cathe's Slow and Heavy and now I am doing the STS rotation, with Meso 1 for one month, Meso 2 for two months and Meso 3 for one month. I love lifting straight weights, I used to love AWT but now I like to separate the workouts.

I've stuck with strength work. I never thought I'd love it more than cardio. I'm going to the YMCA these days and prefer doing various strength options over cardio.

What works for you?
This is me exactly. Early 2000 I did some Cathe, KCM, Jari, Kettlebells etc. But I have stuck with my routine of Essentrics/Ellen/Walking/Biking/Yoga with some Jessica Smith thrown in here and there at least since 2010. I have walked for years (1986+since I had to stop running due to the knees) and only stopped walking for about 6 months pre-knee replacement (2019) when I couldn't even walk around the block. Now I walk daily sometimes twice a day, take hikes, bike and add the others in most days.
