Whenever I get the urge to exercise I lie down until it goes away.

But you can try these:

Beat around the bush
Jump to conclusions
Climb the walls
Drag your heels
Push your luck
Make mountains out of mole hills
Pull out all the stops
Open a can of worms

It ain't brain surgery. Just find some time at least 4 days a week to do a half-hour of cardio and a half-hour of weights. Keeping the exercises varied (and the weight lighter than when you were in your 20's) will prevent injuries.

You can find all kinds of workout routines on the internet or in fitness magazines. Or hire a personal trainer for a few sessions to get started. Start slow and build up.

Motivation is the biggest problem for most folks. Fitness Clubs make good money selling yearly memberships to people who only show up for a couple weeks.

Use light weights for longer periods of time to build up muscular endurance. I try to run a mile or two 3-4 times per week and do weights approximately the same number of times per week. To look at me, I don't look to be the most physically fit person, but I can get up and down the court no problem. Then again, I'm significantly younger than most of the people on this forum, so that could help too.

Just remember, you don't have to have muscles like Hochuli, you just need to be able to get up and down the court with ease to make the calls you need to make.

Check out Pete Egoscue - he has cool exercises that require you to lie on your back, etc. quite good, actually!!
Otherwise, walking is way underestimated - preserve your knees for the court.

For me, I buy a new pair of cross trainers and a bag of doughnuts.

I used to ride my bicycle two miles every day. The problem was, I would ride it to Baskin-Robbins.

Wasn't there a famous Olympian who had those little chocolate donuts on his training table?


Walking and bike riding work for me - easier on the knees.

Reminds me of when I was a collector at the bank.

Boss: So what is the deal with this commerical loan?
Me: It's a workout.

I didn't mean to imply that the only thing necessary for making the right calls was that you get up and down the court.
