I exercise 3 hours a week--- jogging on treadmill-- 3 days a week, 1 hour each day, Fri-Sun. I like doing this because it gives me a lot of energy and I am more alert. 3 hours is the maximum for me because 1) I am not even overweight in the first place and 2) I hate doing it during the weekdays

Five hours. Four in the gym spread out over four nights, then an extra hour divided up into 2 to 3 running sessions.

Geez.......... thats tough for me to answer because I keep mixing up my workouts so that I wont get bored. Often, I do a 5k run in the morning. Crossfit or weights in the afternoon. Martial arts in the evening. Sometimes yoga. Sometimes I'll play the 13 year old in a few games of basketball. All this on the same day.

On average:

Martial arts: 18hrs per week
Running: 4-5 hours
Weights/Crossfit: 7 hours
Yoga/taichi: 3 hours

Wow!! About 30 hours per week. This includes warmup time.

Hmmmm....probably about 7 hours is typical...I'd like to kick it up a notch and will probably try to get in more cardio like running while my kids bike etc.

Basketball 2-5 hours a week
Weights 2-3 hours a week
Misc cardio. 1-2 hours a week

Well............. I guess technically its possible. Its actually my wife's kid who is with us 3 nights of the week. She had him really young though.

Looking at my numbers, they are I think higher than they should be. I think I should be in much better shape than Im in now with 30+ hours of exercise per week.

DaBeez, I am no expert, but I have done a TON of research while I've been doing the X. To me it sounds like you're doing too much. Unless you spend all day stuffing your face full of clean foods, there's almost no way you could be keeping up with what you must be burning. It may almost be counter productive to be doing so much? Do you at least take a sugary recovery drink post workout?

I do about 7 hours a week at the minute of really heavy exercise. Plus I do a lot of walking.

I think you're right. I take zero supplements/vitamins other than Udos Choice oil and whey protein shakes post workout. A couple weeks ago I had to cut one of my runs short because it felt like I was running in waist high mud - weirdest feeling ever.

I think a lot of it has to do with the amount of time I do my martial arts. Its usually around 3 hours per day, sometimes less, sometimes more. I also eat fairly well and often. If I feel like Im overdoing it, I usually take a day or two off and do NOTHING.
