I need some ideas for aerobic exercise. Running is pretty much out of the question. I damaged my hip joint years ago and while I can run for short distances, long distance running isn't very comfortable.

Right now I am mixing it up with jump rope, punching bag, and form practice (kung fu).

The jumping rope is excellent,it does the whole body good. I need to start an exercise program. Like I said,I need to do self discipline.

The new craze... http://crossfit.com/

This stuff is crazy effective. Keeps the body guessing and pushing the limits. I got good results over the summer.

Another thing that comes to mind is how MMA fighters train. That's intense! I love how it makes you sweat in such a short amount of time.

if you wanna get fit, swim. And if by aerobic you mean, "burn fat", you need to keep your heart rate low. Walking actually burns much more at than running. Once your heart rate exceeds 140 you start to burn mostly carbohydrates (until you run out).

Either way...swim FTW. Swim fast, get fit, swim slow, get skinny. ...lift weights, get huge...pretty simple really

Yeah, swimming is great. Just don't get deydrated. Make sure you're constantly hydrated if you're going to do an hour of hard swimming, treading, etc.

You like that pic, Willy? Had no idea, thought it was a random thing.

As for burning fat, best time to do that is in the morning right after waking up and before any breakfast. The body is forced to tap into the fat stores to get energy. I never thought I'd like working out in the morning, but it definitely has it's advantages.

Does your hip keep you from riding a road bike?? If not, it's a great way to improve cardio conditioning, as well as making your legs much, much, much stronger.
