Exercise "poll"
I'm curious to see how many people use JUDDD alone or with exercise. So how about we do a poll of sorts, with people just adding on from the last poster. I'll start

No exercise:
Exercise 1-2 times a week: I
Exercise 3-4 times a week:
Exercise 5-6 times a week:
Exercise everyday:

Every morning first thing, minimum 1 hour. Some days it's 1.5-2 and as the weather permits I'll bike or walk/run outside later in the day. Until May 5th. Then I have to give up my Sat. a.m. time for the summer. Then I will at least walk in the afternoon or evening if the weather permits.

I lose/maintain but easier if I keep up the exercise. And it makes me feel good. :)

I do 30 mins a day but just walking on inclines on my treadmill, nothing super strenuous. I want to add strength training back in too, every other day.

tiva 04-14-2012 07:14 PM

Everyday, at least an hour. 3 days a week, quite vigorous (usually 15 miles on my road bike in an hour. Today was a DD, and the route had hills and a head wind. I'm ravenous!)

babykinz 04-14-2012 07:37 PM

I do on UD's. I worked my way up to 25minutes of Treadmill and will continue to improve.
I plan on adding it to DD's as well, baby steps!

krow134 04-14-2012 07:40 PM

Exercise 5-6 times a week

I run at home and walk stairs at work.

northandcold23 04-14-2012 07:44 PM

Every day 40- min to an hour and a half. Every morning do 40-50 min when my job changes I will do an hour in the morning. Then if weather is nice 40 min walk in the evenings.

No exercise

KeirasMom 04-14-2012 09:15 PM

I shoot for once per week. Sometimes it's more, sometimes not at all. I figure I average one/week overall. Once I get my thyroid meds right and not exhausted all the time, I'll increase.

I've never had a problem exercising on DDs, if that's a question, even though I'm not a rabid exerciser. I really don't see any difference between UD and DD with regards to energy level. :dunno:

lynnjp 04-14-2012 09:19 PM

4-5 times a week, zumba, NIA, weight training, rowing and cardio mix class

I just started JUDDD yesterday with my first DD. I am continuing my intensive exercise regime. My goal is to maintain a high heart rate throughout my exercise.

Everyday at least 45-90 minutes of cardio (walking on the treadmill, walking hills outside, or elliptical). I use the Fitbit to track my daily steps.

2 times per week I workout with a trainer for 30 minutes mostly strength training, but he incorporates a lot of cardio as well. My heart is pumping throughout the whole workout. I've been meeting with a trainer for over a year now. He keeps me at the gym...until I had a workout buddy I always went to the gym by myself...having a trainer ensured that I went at least 2 times a week. As I mentioned above I have been going everyday (unless I'm on vacation), my workout buddy has helped keep me there. :)

Some results of the strength training for me are that I can actually see the muscles in my arms :) (although I still have plenty of hanging skin). Also I can now do situps (started out doing modified situps) and knee pushups (started out doing wall pushups) and my trainer told me that I am one of his best "squatters". LOL When I started I couldn't do low squats. Now it is a breeze...I can do 60 of them with a 25lb plate.

Edit - Yesterday I consumed about 600 calories on my DD even with working out almost 1.5 hours. I worked out with my trainer in the morning for 30 minutes. Then I went back last night and went on the elliptical for 54 minutes. For the evening workout, I made sure that I ate some protein before and then I had 1/2 of an aktins bar before bed so I could sleep.

3 times a week I work the Curves circuit..love it! :kicking::kicking: :kicking:

hockey_gal 04-14-2012 10:27 PM

Exercise 3-4 times a week

1-2x/week 60 mins of icehockey
2x/week 45 mins of yoga poses, situps, pushups, squats and lunges

I just got a pedometer last week and I'm trying to get 10,000 steps/day. On work days, I find it VERY hard to do!! Today I'm only at 7000 but it's not over yet and I played ice hockey tonight...

Normally 3 times a week.

Been of for the past 2weeks, life getting in the way.

itsmeshelly01 04-15-2012 05:51 AM

Everyday for me. At least 45min to an hour of either jogging, tabata drills, circuit workout, cardio/weightlifting or just weightlifting. First thing in the morning in a fasted state. I also try to get in a walk on the weekends with SO if the weather permits.

sya_unit 04-15-2012 04:45 PM

I am soo jealous of the Curves people! I used to have a curves by my house. I moved and no curves. and nothing like it. I have taken up hiking and mountain biking. At least 2-3 times per week. I have an exercise game for the xBox but it hurt my shoulder so I would rather be outside in nature and biking or hiking. This week I rode 5 miles on the mountain and did over three miles hiking in wind and rain. I hope to up it next week end. But I only get two days off next week so hope to get some road time in on the bike. (I work 4 tens but sometimes it turns into 5 tens!)

mykidsteacher 04-15-2012 08:20 PM

Almost never. I want to, I just can't seem to make it happen.

OhioGuy 04-16-2012 11:28 AM

6 or 7 days a week.

nickicaps 04-16-2012 12:25 PM

5-6 days per week

usually 2-4 days of Bikram- 90 min
2-4 days of Calllanetics plus a 2-3 mile walk or 15 min jump rope or 30 min crazy bouncing on a trampoline (I much prefer this type of bounce to the JUDDD one):jumpjoy:

Showcats 04-16-2012 12:44 PM

3-4 days a week normally on DD. Exercise bike usually but also some Yoga.

carla70 04-16-2012 01:19 PM

I do Couch 25k every other day and now have added in walking 30+ minutes on days I don't do that. I usually take weekends "off" from exercise but spend them cleaning house and so forth. I have been doing C25k or a walk on weekends lately also.

sunday 04-16-2012 02:33 PM

I used to do Callanetics every day. Just began again, trying to get it in at least 3 x per week.

Power Walk everyday :love:
Rebounding everyday
Elliptical 3x
Kettlebells 3x

sdjade 04-16-2012 03:12 PM

6-7 days/week for me
Usually a mix of cardio, strength training and sometimes tennis on the weekend. My new favorite cardio is the rowing machine. I love it (as much as one can love such a thing)!

Muffabuff 04-16-2012 08:26 PM

I do high intensity interval training on my Nautalis 3x week. It burns about 250 calories in about 35 minutes. It's like a cross between a treadmill, stepper, and elliptical in one machine. I'm hoping to add another excercise two more days a week.

mom22boys 04-16-2012 08:35 PM

I run 5-6 days a week and try to get in a strength training DVD a few times a week as well.

vanilla_latte 04-17-2012 01:04 PM

Curves and Zumba, usually 4 times per week.

PCramer 04-17-2012 02:16 PM

5-6 times a week, 4-5 miles per day walk/jog, and then some type of barre/ballet type muscular work in the a.m. Sometimes I will add an afternoon workout if I can fit it in :)
