What do you guys do to stay in shape?

Personally I started Muay Thai. It's a great workout, + I love punching and kicking people lol.

I've done karate for a long time and I still do it but the classes really aren't enough to get me in shape or satisfy my need to be competitive.

I have been really getting into mace training, also known as macebell training. Mace training is a great way to get all around fitness. Check out onnit.com or mrmaceman on Instagram to get the idea.

I can share my experience, doctor said I had fat liver so this made me think about myself. I decided to make a change:
Two months ago ditched all the chips, chocolate, Coca Cola I was constantly eating in the evening... Only ditching this was MEGA step up !!
Extra plus is just 2-3 days after restraining myself I did not even feel the need to eat that anymore. Actually - not eating after 6 p.m. came automatic :)

Breakfast and lunch at work: breakfast optional but when I get the chance: one fist full of muesli with hot water (takes 30 seconds to make)...
Lunch anything that's LOW ON CALORIES (dry food - cut on sauce, mayo, ketchup, fat etc...), bread as low as possible, STOPPED eating doughnuts and bakery stuff. If I get hungry between meals I take fruit, everyone likes bananas :)
One spectacular thing I noticed - when you minimize eating all this mentioned, your body quickly stops wanting it.
It is really easy to change these eating habits.

Next step - One month ago I started running 4 kilometers @ monday, wednesday, friday.
After running - gym 1 hour.
Supplement Battery gold whey isolate before & after workout + once on a free day...
Started last week DAA with prolact block.
I feel 5x superb to what I was 2 months ago.
+extra thing, I started missing the workout on my days off, but I have to restrain/take time to recover to avoid damage.
Results in two months: lost one kilogram, and buffed some shape :)
