Re: What is your non-aikido workout?

Walking, push-ups, sit-ups, and light weight lifting.

Re: What is your non-aikido workout?

eating, drinking and carousing. "aikido is all about love" doesn't seem to work as a pickup line at local pub.

Yeah....doesn't really work..

Maybe you should try "Baby, I'm an aikidoist, so I can MAKE you fall for me."

Re: What is your non-aikido workout?

When not working, playing husband, father and helping run the dojo, I do Yoga & Walk everyday except Sundays.
Sunday is my day to practice sitting and reading or my Xbox waza

Re: What is your non-aikido workout?

I practice seiza and kiza while playing Xbox...particularly the months preceding my last dan test as hamni handachi hantai futari jiyuwaza was a requirement.

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!

Re: What is your non-aikido workout?

I like to switch things up -- less repetitive stress injuries. so...
weight training 3x per week
week 1 -- spin class + 2 10 mi rides
week 2 -- swim workouts about 40 min/2 km x3
week 3 -- running about 40 min (working from 2.5 mi to 5 mi) x3

It ends up being about an hour commitment each day. And not every week is perfect. But basically, I workout so that on the mat a can focus on AIKIDO, not "can I make it thru class? :0"

...not as evil as I could be

Re: What is your non-aikido workout?

My life has become rather hectic lately, and I have much less time for Aikido and physical training in general . Since my family and I have relocated our store, I now have to climb nineteen stairs to reach my desk, and I do have to climb up and down several times during the day. So in the afternoon, when activities are slowing down, I do some knuckle pushups and then climb the stairs up and down a few times. The stairs are metallic, so they vibrate under one's weight and my knees do not suffer too much from the impact. Then I do a few standing leg raises - these days I only wear pants. Also, those stairs are rather noisy, so I know when someone is coming early enough to rush back to my desk and adopt some dignified posture in front of my computer .
At home, I'll do sit ups, some exercises for my back, and some stretching, and since I have small and weak arms and hands, some shomen and yokomen with my old wallhanger. I do my yokomen with one arm only, and, for the sake of symmetrical muscle development, I do them both right-handed and left-handed. One day, in class, an instructor gave me a puzzled look and asked me where I'd learned to hold my sword with my left hand behind the stuba. Oops!

Mostly walking and bellydancing, when I have the time.

Re: What is your non-aikido workout?

I like the P90X and Insanity when I have a chance, but I find that small exercises throughout the day really help. Jog instead of walking places, 10 pushups, here, 20 pushups there, flexing abs while waiting in line, little things like that. Also, instead of regular stretching, I like power yoga.
