    jk. But I have such a hard time working out. It's really hard to fork up the motivation! Although, I recently got a workout buddy and that helps alot.

    Having someone to work out with definitely motivates you to try harder... That is if you're both trying. Because if either of you aren't then you end up seeing who tries the least. Yeah.

    Age is also a factor. If you're 14 or some junk, then don't expect to put on muscles.

    Oh, and don't try doing weights when you're drunk.

    a work out buddy keeps you accountable. That's kind of how I got started...

    I think I'll go to the gym this week. Maybe I'll take some dance classes... Dancing is a FUN work out. Since I have a membership, my gym has free hip-hop classes I can take. They're taught by regular (good) students. I hear they're lots of fun.

    Yes, also you could stunt your growth, if you work out with weights at a young age. I would say sit ups and push up are good for those who are under 16.

    Yep. Gyms are helpful, but damn expensive, especially if you're just starting out.

    Easy way to start is do a bunch of pushups and situps every day - try around 40, or find whatever your limit is, and work on improving it.

    Run. Excellent at molding legs and core muscles - around the abs and lower back.

    If you can, swim. It's fantastic at pretty much everthing. Upper body, lower body, breathing and aerobic work.

    Mix it up. Don't do the same stuff for three days then take a four-day break. Make sure different exercises and break times are nicely spaced.

    Stretch. Or your tight newly-formed muscles will end up restricting you more than your puny muscles did.

    After doing these for a couple of months you should be feeling better.

    One note to add to Sherman's ab/pushup workout is to make sure to do all parts of the abs, because working out only certain regions by doing a few similar exercises will only end up strengthening certain parts of your abs and will ultimately do little good for your entire abs. It's more important to go for holistic workouts when possible, regarding both parts training as well as aerobic/muscular fitness.

    Definitely. Jog a mile 3 days a week. My average heartrate went from 74bpm to 62bpm. It's nice knowing your heart is actually beating less and still doing the same amount of work (or more) that it normally does.

    Definately:

    You can eat all the crap you want, you'll STILL lose half a stone within 4 weeks.

    But now I'm back in England I just do:
    Tap dance once a week
    Badminton once a week
    40 really, really, really ridiculously slow sit ups in the morning.

    And fidgeting. It helps. A lot.

    Why? Is the water there that bad?
