Do you mind sharing your typical daily exercise routine and hopefully assist me and other members with ideas?

Are looking for just general or specific exercise, like reps and weights used on a specific machine?

Going to the gym first thing in the morning - bike, elliptical trainer, or treadmill with weights etc. On weekends, I go kayaking, do walk & runs outside and swim in the pool at the campground we're at.

Just the general routine although I must say that I'm interested in a free weights routine as well. I own a set of dumbbells that I never know what to do with. I'm a beginner as far as exercise goes so I'd appreciate some tips on what to do with the dumbbells as well.

Thanking everyone for their input.

I try to walk on my gazelle every workday morning at least 15 minutes. I'm off track on workouts right now, have been doing much heavy yard work and the grandkid's ball games have taken up many evenings.

Most of the year I'm at the gym 3 days a week for 1-1 1/2 hours, depends if I have time to do the treadmill. I have a routine of various weight machines and other equipment there that is all strength training.

At home I have an exercise ball, a small set if dumbbells, a mini trampoline, and a new bike. I try to get cardio in on non gym days, do some pilates, stretching, and weights used with the ball. Today mowing my grass, front and back, and weedeating was my cardio.

One hour of walking at 4 mph every other day. Dumbbell workout then 30 minutes treadmill on alternate days. One day a week off for full rest.

I've had greatest success with JiuJitsu and Kickboxing 4x a week. Got within 4lbs of my goal, but then I broke some things and was out for a while. :I

Now it's light workouts on Monday/Thursday and heavy workouts on Tuesday/Friday. It's the same set of activities: run 10 minutes to warm up, three sets of five activities. Something pushing for the chest (bench, pushup, etc). Something pulling for the chest/back. (Pullup, etc) Something with the abdomen. (Situp, crunch, twist, plank, etc) Something with the quads. (Squat, lunge, jumping.) Something with the butt. (Leg kicks, leg raises, etc)

The best exercise is any you'll do. It doesn't have to be extremely hardcore or exhaustive. Consistency is better than intensity I'm told.

Freeweights and machines. 20-30 min of elliptical or jogging afterwards. 5-6 times a week. I suggest joining a gym if you really want to shape your body. There are plenty of youtube videos that can teach you proper form.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Just bought an exercise hula hoop so that's going to add to my plan, something to do instead of being lazy watching something on tv, waiting on cooking, or just have a few minutes. I can use it upstairs that and my mini trampoline. I have a finished basement where most of my exercise stuff is, but it has a low ceiling.

Summer of 2016 my routine was dumbells every other day with alternating muscle combinations. The first exercise was 50 lbs in each hand and doing either three sets of 24 back lunges or three sets of 24 squats. The routine continued with other exercises (max 12 reps)for 40 to 45 minutes. I did jump squats or running in place in between sets. Now, afer heart surgery, I'm slowly trying to get back into it, but still have some restrictions.

My basic routines is based on bodyweight training. I also run with regularity, do sprints and jump the rope to keep a low bodyfat. These last three exercises are also great to relief stress. Something similar to these workouts here: https://goo.gl/xwqRdD

My basic bodyweight exercises are: pushups, pullups, dips, squats, handstand pushups against a wall, leg raises, planks, burpees, mountain climbers, jumping jacks etc.
Basically, all the most basic variations possible. Sometimes I add some weight and do weighted calisthenics - same exercises but with more resistance.

This is my training philosophy: https://goo.gl/YiTjUa

I swim two hours every morning and try to walk in the afternoons for an hour. I don’t track the “miles”, I walk with various people who walk at different paces. It’s just nice to do it as a small group.

Weightlifting. I had never lifted in my life but after a health scare the doctor told me to get off my butt. Long story short, I thankfully discovered weightlifting. So, here's my basic routine, twice/week: seated leg press, chest press, shoulder press, low row, pull down. Set the weight, use a super-slow motion to raise and lower the weight; drive the muscle to fatigue. When you're able to do that for 90 seconds, you're ready to increase the weight next time. Go from exercise to exercise with as little pause as possible. There's no need to do more than one set per exercise. Entire session should take about 20 minutes. For details any number of books will describe this technique. For example, see Body by Science (McGuff). Personally, I'm convinced that loss of muscle is a very significant health concern, and dieting, particularly yo-yo dieting, doesn't help. So, yeah, I'm lifting to keep and build muscle. Sorry to go on so long!

I take the stairs at work all day to go to the restroom vs. using the one on the first floor.

I do 40 minutes to an hour of boot camp when I get home in the evening.

I get in a medium or long run (or both) on the weekend.

I do 30-40 minutes of Pilates, go for a brisk walk with my dogs, and do a morning get me up such as push-ups! I recommend doing POP Pilates!! I absolutely love it, and Cassey makes it fun! I also recommend buying new workout clothes, something about a fresh start in fresh clothes makes you very motivated to workout!! I also do 40 minutes of boot camp 3 times a week, attend a yoga class Sunday, a cycling class Saturday, on Monday I workout with a personal trainer, Tuesday’s I do boot camp, Wednesday’s I Horseback ride, and boot camp, on Thursdays I only do pop Pilates, and on Fridays I Attend a dance and gymnastics class... all on top of Pilates and walking everyday!! Find your balance, and #LOVE YOUR BODY!
