    Used to be 3-4x/week at the gym doing heavy lifts of squats, deadlifts, cleans, snatches, push presses, overhead presses, etc., supplemented by 1-2x/week sprints, yoga, cycling, hiking

    Now it's 2x/week self defense classes, 1x/week sprints, and 1x/week yoga. And regular dancing like a crazy in my apartment to house music.

    Mine is like this:

    A. Yoga in two forms: 1. normal yoga program that does body weight stuff (basically the LHT version of yoga) and 2. therapeutic yoga to help better align my posture (this also includes pilates and feldenkrais stuff).

    B: Mobility and posture work: I then do mobility work and specific posture work -- i'm realigning my posture altogether and have been for 6 months. It's really amazing as a process. It takes a lot of effort.

    C. walking/hiking -- do this once or twice a week for the long-slow/play;

    D. Sprint day, which is mostly playing with my kid.

    E. Play which is swimming right now.

    do a google search for "cleans," "snatches" and "push press" and you'll see.

    DEFINITELY Google search "snatches". Turn off any filters.

    My ladyfriend has been doing squats, deadlifts, bench presses, and presses, all with progressively greater resistance. Then, for accessory work, she does some bicep curls, band-assisted chin-ups, more squats but lighter/higher volume, and incline push-ups. And she walks on trails in the county park as much as possible. Wish she'd have let me document her progress with photos, but you'll have to take my word for it. And my word is: it works.

    So your fitness routine involves googling snatches. You must also enjoy jerking tremendously.

    I walk about 10 hours per week, usually with a weight vest (it's at 13 pounds or so). Occasionally I leave the vest behind and jog the trails as much as I feel like. I do bodyweight squats about 3-4 days per week, as many as I can fit in during the day. Once a week I go to the gym to knock out about 15 pullups (assisted for now). I am slowly incorporating pushups into my day.
    As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again.
