That's totally worth it! ;)

There is an article in this site about sex not being a good workout in the weight-loss sense, but it does sound like the risk for bending from the extra body heat and blood circulating to places it should not, is there. On second thought, it sounds painful, maybe it is not worth it. ;)

If I paint the picture any clearer, my post will have to be flagged as inappropriate. :)

I was told a story when I was taking my OW about a guy who got bent having sex after a morning of diving! My instructor at the time suggested not to overdue before & after diving! Surface intervals are for chilling out! Exercise on non dive days!

I second Dive4Life's reminder NOT to exercise when off-gassing, because that increases body heat and hence micro-bubble sizes, and also moves more blood around to more places where maybe the extra gas should not be.

If you mean in the days between dives, then I like to play tennis, ice skate, ski, soccer, and jog. I forfeited this dive weekend to run the Wharf to Wharf 10km from Santa Cruz to Capitola today (in 63 mins).

Flexibility training (like yoga) seems to be the most advantageous to diving "skills" (the type we teach, you get tested on, and hope never to have to use).

If you're talking about exercising DURING surface interval btw same day dives, I'm not so sure that's a great idea. Surface interval should be easy going since it's primary purpose is off-gassing eh?

Just START

I do lots of walking. Really should do some other strength exercises, I know. Some day I'll get ambitious enuf for that...

My favorite workout is DIVING!!! My thighs have changed so much over the last three weeks, diving at least a couple of hours every day. Unfortunately there's no diving in Atlanta, so when I am home, I do circuit training, Pilates, yoga, walking, some weights...

I am thinking of taking up spinning to keep up with one of the dive masters here in Cozumel, though I have gotten better as the month has progressed. He sees something good and jets away like a squid. He calls us all over, but I like going when he does!!

Was diving with a biking enthusiast who said he'd not want to take me on in a sprint after watching me parallel a green turtle up current to video him.

Okay, we were talking about workouts, right? Sorry I got distracted!
A dive buddy who's been slimmed down for a decade now told me, last summer, "I have to do something at home to stay in shape for diving. I don't like it as much, but I have to do something!"
That's gotten me off the couch many, many times.

HI There...i practice yoga and meditation when i'm over diving in the red sea as i don't like to run etc in the heat. Plus the meditation only takes 10 mins and helps with my breathing and the yoga keeps me supple. rae

You don't need eyes to see you need vision.

Never take life too seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

I know that being in good shape is better for diving, especially since it lowers your air consumption rate and buoyancy.

How do you fit excise in with dive weekends out of town?
What is your favorite workout with diving?
