Rowing and hiking.

If it weren't for rowing and hiking, and dogs onboard(which make it mandatory), the type of coastal sailing we do would be quite sedentary.

Rowing for exercise can be a fun easy workout, especially good for keeping your back in shape. Rowing dinghys are popular in our area.

If you're cruising, you can get a lot of exercise just taking care of daily needs, with no car. Sailors as a group up and down the east coast look pretty fit to me.

Re: Physical Fitness

I would think the TRX would be a great piece of equipment for exercise on a boat. All body weight based, it kicks my butt at home. I like metabolic resistance/ high intensity intervals for exercise (when I get around to doing any). Twice the benefit in half the time, but you bust your hump getting it done.

Re: Physical Fitness

280 was my max score, never could get more than 18 pullups. I may be able to get a score of 28 if I tried it now. I see they increased the situps to 100, it used to be 80 for max score.

That would be a score of 300, what am I missing? Maybe you typo'd the run time. 139 situps whoa!

Re: Physical Fitness

Earlier in the other thread I made the statement that our general demographics was probably 45-65 yrs... hmmmm.....

Either I was dead wrong, (likely ) or our armchair couch potatoes are a notable silent majority on this topic....

They haven't the stamina to type (just got back from 40 miles on the bike).

But seriously, in prep for a big passage this coming summer I'm now trying to spend 3-4 hrs a week on the stationary bike and 1 1/2 - 2 hours doing weight training (mostly core and upper body strength). I't amazing what a few months of that will do for an old body. A small boat at sea is no place for a couch potato.

Re: Physical Fitness

Military fitness tests are pretty easy these days if you are at least in half-decent shape.

As far as staying in shape while sailing, it's pretty easy to workout anywhere as I prefer bodyweight exercises. I'm still trying to figure out how to do pullups on my boat, though. Once I figure that out, I'm golden.

Off topic - @zeehag Is English not your native language, or do you deliberately try to type like a pirate? Your posts are almost unreadable.

be excellent to each other
