    I do strongman based training 3-4 days a week. This is involves the big lifts, oly lifts and competition based exercises - sandbag carries, car pushes, sled drags etc. Plus sprinting. Those are my favourite days

    I play tennis at least once a week for an hour.
    I'm trying to walk from my work to the supermarket to get food in the house often (that's a 20 minute walk)
    I'm trying to do squats and push ups as often as I can around the house.

    any other activity comes from playing around with the cats and cleaning up the house...

    (yeah I'm kind of lazy)
    My story, My thought....

    Yes. Soreness is not an indicator of where you're at in the stress/recovery cycle. Do some extra warmup sets so you can achieve full ROM and lift away. Once you get accustomed to your routine, soreness won't be such a big deal.

    I work with a strength and conditioning coach in a small group environment 3 times a week for one hour each. I also workout on my one at least once more a week, sometimes twice - sometimes with strength, sometimes on my bicycle. At home I've a Jungle Gym XT (a version of the TRX), a kettlebell and some mobility gear - pretty much all I need.

    This morning our workout featured single legged rows with a kettlebell, TRX rows with a press (kettlebell or dumbbell). We finished up with 4 minutes of 20 seconds on/20 seconds off of squat jumps. If we wanted to make that harder than we held the squat during the rest - I did for a couple, but couldn't for all of them.

    I work very hard but rarely get more than a little sore. My coach tells me that this is related to hydration as much as anything. Make certain you are drinking enough water - throughout the day - and getting some decent protein in during that first hour after the workout. I typically wait at least 30 minutes to allow my system a chance to calm after an intense workout.

    My fitness routine:

    Daily: throughout the day: yoga, arm balances, inversions (headstands and handstands), lots of chataranga and planks, side planks.

    Once or twice weekly: 60 min hot yoga class

    Once or twice weekly: lifting weights at the gym- squats, dead lift, overhead press, assisted chin-ups, bench press, heavy rope

    Every now and then: sprint session as I feel like it

    As often as possible: dance class (ballet or jazz)

    I also spend a lot of my free time stretching my spine and forward bending as well as working the kinks out with a foam roller or tennis ball. Dance and yoga require extreme range of motion and maintaining and expanding that supersedes gaining strength.

    About 4x a week heavy lifting (squats, deads, push/schoulder press, clean & jerk) and 3x a week weightlifting technique. Also about 2 WOD's a week and other CrossFit techniques like handstand pushup and kipping occasionally. I always pick 2 components: technique + strength, technique + WOD, strength + WOD, everything is possible. I always make sure I have at least 1 rest day.
    NB. I'm training to be a competitive weightlifter/CrossFit athlete someday. I do not recommend training this much for gaining logevity or something like PB describes, because I am constantly on the verge on overtraining which is not a good thing. Also my muscles and ligaments do not approve with this intensity. Scheduling rest days is really important.
