    I am doing Prowler work a couple days a week and walking with 80 pound weighted vest for two miles two days a week. What are you doing?

    I know the above is bound to get bad reviews from people on here from the former Soviet Republic of Adrenal Fatigue-istan. Bring it!

    Haha nice. That sounds pretty tough!

    I’m still in the recovery phase of eating after a bad bout of paleo/low calories, so right now maybe once or twice a week I’ll jump on the treadmill for an interval workout.

    5mins – warmup at 7km/h
    2mins – work period, 9.5km/h
    2mins – rest period, 3km/h
    2mins – work period, 9.5km/h
    2mins – rest period, 3km/h
    2mins – work period, 9.5km/h

    total is 15 minutes. I keep increasing the speed of the work periods each week by like 0.1, I started at 9.

    I’m also thinking about starting boxing or kickboxing just so that I don’t have to do any cardio that isn’t “fun.” Running is so boring.

    I play basketball 3-6 days a week for probably 6-15 hours total per week. That’s a lot of conditioning. But it’s awesome and I like it.

    @Rob, do you play in a league or pick-up? Basketball is great, and I wish that I had the flexibility (time) to play in a league (pick-up games are hard to come by around here). As it is, I just have to do individual stuff that is not as fun.

    Both. I’m in a couple adult rec leagues here in NYC, and I play streetball with the kids during the week. It’s great because summer i here and all the high schoolers are out of school, so even more than before, there’s a guaranteed game going on somewhere in the three nearby basketball courts to me.

    I agree- sometimes when I have to play on my own, it’s tedious. I do like to run some skill drills, but 9 times out of 10 I’d rather get in a game.
