Just curious after reading that calorie thread.
I consider carrying my beers after running errands as ''working out''.
So probably once or twice a week.
Love working out more than I enjoy drinking... I can really embrace a beer depending on how much work I put in at the gym
I have always been into working out just for my overall health. I don't workout to drink, it is more just what I enjoy, honestly it takes a lot of stress out of the work day, etc. Beer is like anything else, if you over do it and don't offset with exercise you will gain weight, same as food, etc. Overall I really don't worry about it, I love my beer and enjoying working out so in the end it works.
Brewing is a god exercise
We walk about 6.5 miles a day, so there ends up being a little time for beer. We are 66 and 60.
There are other reasons for "working out". For many years, I played team sports (soccer, basketball, volleyball). It allowed me to eat and drink pretty much what I want (within reason). As I have gotten older, my joints don't like jumping and twisting as much. So, it's basic running and cycling.
7 days a week. (early riser)
I do 30-60 minutes of cardio every morning before work. Lift twice a week, usually after I get the kids to bed.
Weekend mornings - cardio session before the rest of the house wakes up.
Work out 5 to 6 days a week and between walking the dog,gardening,and other hobbies and chores im always active. I have enjoyed working out since I was 19 and ran a marathon, its just a huge part of my lifestyle
I pretty much quit driving just over a year ago. If I'm going somewhere, 90% of the time its on a bicycle. I have commuted to work by bike every day, 9 miles round trip in rain, snow, and driving winds...whatever since late October last year. I have a dozen bikes with two set up specifically for rain and/or snow. So 5 days a week has me in the saddle for 45 miles plus I do about another 50 or so going wherever. I probably drink more now than I was a couple years ago but have maintained the same weight.
I didn't start getting serious about riding so I can drink more beer, it just sort of worked out that way, lol.
45-60 minutes on the bike, 4 or 5 days per week. I think exercise and beer are pretty similar... good for the body and good for the soul
Work out? Like in a gym? Never. Active life and work. Trail work for mt bike stuff, mt biking, bikepacking, commuting by bike, all good.
Walk about 3 miles a day but I'd do that even if I quit drinking beer.
This has recently been a dilemma for me. I had been trying to drop ~10-15 extra pounds I'm carrying. I started working out (45-60 minutes of cardio plus some weights) 3 times a week and allowed myself one beer (typically 16 oz.) every night. I mostly found myself staying stagnant, so have begrudgingly started to try only drinking beer on the weekends and keeping my workout the same. Started it on Monday and have actually dropped 2 pounds so far so there's either something to my new method or I'm finally losing the sodium water weight from thanksgiving.
I do a lot of working around home, Don't know if I'ld feel like getting stuff done if I used up my energy "working out".
This is the first year in ages that I didn't walk the golf course 3 or 4 times a week. I do miss golf. hopefully next year I'll get back to golf. Did gain a little weight this year without golf, but built a log building and cut a lot of firewood, Seems like a workout to me.
Well, I cycle about 300 miles a month, on average. Bit more in the summer, bit less in the winter, to be honest. Since I tend to cycle long distances, that comes down to around 2-4 times a week, on average, again.
I work at a university rec center, so it makes it easier to work out. Try to do cardio 3-4 times a week at least to try to break even on those beer calories. Try is the key word...
Workout? Only 16oz curls!
If I were to "werkout" it'd probably kill me - COPD
I don't work out but walk 3-5 every day weather permeting.
Almost everyday, but that's to eat what I want. Before marriage, I actually cared. Now, I just do it because I enjoy it.
Absolutely never. I have a fast metabolism, an active life, and eat/drink what I want. I never gain weight. Just lucky I guess.
4-5 times a week, resistance training and some cardio, I also eat like a pig, so I have to workout
I do 12 ounce curls at least 5 times week. Sometimes I even do 16 ounce curls. I have been known to run to the bathroom now and then too.
5-7 days a week, but not sure I'm winning. Those high ABV BA stout bombers supposedly have a couple of calories in them, as I understand it.
All of the concussive shock from years of basketball, my knees and hips suffer during weather changes, and sometimes just generally. My son was a professional skater, is 32, and has back, knee, and ankle issues. But I'll take it!
I'm running anywhere from 40 miles a week in the off season, to 70 when I'm training for a big race. Looking to bump that max mileage to 80 for the next training cycle. Regardless, that equates to about 5 days of running a week minimum.
I'm not going to be that guy with man boobs at the bar, and the stouts taste better when I know I've gotten in at least 6 miles over my lunch break.
I'm not sure if it counts as "working out" per se, but between my dog and my wanting to carve out some extra calories for beer I hike 3 miles or so a few times a week.
When I lived in the Midwest and there were no hills or forests nearby my waistline was noticeably less cooperative (not that it's completely tame now by any means).
key for me is calorie intake. lots of protein at breakfast followed by soup for lunch, snacks consisting if nuts and yogurt and then a reasonable dinner -- that leaves room for a couple of 16s of my favorite IPA -- probably 600 calories or so a day. Cheers!!
Push - legs - pull. 3 days on, 1 off.
Try not to drink on most days but typically have a few Fri - Sun, regardless of rest days.
Didn’t exercise for several years in my late 20s through early 30s and regret it - start young if you still are!
I play ice hockey twice a week and walk my dog for at least 30 minutes each day.
I'm not a skinny guy, always carried weight. However, I'm a Clydesdale Runner. I'm not competitive with elite runners. However, my 225 lbs 6'3" frame is going to pass most within age group either half or full marathon. When training for halfs, like I am now, I run about 35 miles a week and for a fulls I'm into the 50 miles range. For either training plan, I'm running 5 days a week. All of which certainly helps me enjoy beers.
I'll go with the Apostle Paul on this: "Bodily exercise profiteth little." (1 Tim. 4:8)
i run at least once a week and play soccer either that same day or another day
my job is physically demanding so i may have a slight gut but i'm in good shape and i have popeye forearms
I don't currently have a gym membership, although I plan on signing up again soon. However, I do usually go for hikes once or twice a week, so I still get a little exercise. Plus I do lot of a walking and heavy lifting at my main job.
Five days a week, 1-1.5 hours a day. But it doesn't have anything to do with my beer drinking. I just love working out. My wife is a personal trainer too, so she keeps me honest.
I workout about 1.5 hours a day, 6 days a week.
Minimal 5 days a week, more in the summer. Less around the winter holidays. 1.5-2 hours of cycling cardio per day(trainer or otherwise), combined with a very restricted protein rich diet. I own 3 bikes now. I used to be 320 lbs 9 years ago, but now hover around 190-200. I will never let myself get back to that previous weight ever. Cycling is an addiction now, and I hate feeling weight gain bloat, so it just adds to my overall passion to ride more often. Rail and MTB trails.
I workout every time I breathe.
Half marathons, centuries, and and two soccer teams for me. Have played since I was 5. Also try to lift, but that tends to be on and off depending on gym access. I much prefer being outside. None of these things are for beer drinking, but it helps keep a balance. If I live longer, I will have more years to drink great beer!
