I feel that weight and dietary issues are an epidemic in the black community. Lately, I've been seeing a lot of fitness blogs and tumblrs from black women and they look great. I feel that more and more black women are becoming more fit and not just skinny.

I personally workout for 45 minutes a day and that includes cardio and weight training(if you want abs, weights come with the territory). I run on the weekends, in the morning. I take my supplements and stir from unnatural foods. Black women, how do you stay in shape?

A meaningful and positive post that some may be afraid to post on.

I am addicted to tumblr and fitness lol, I usually either run for 30 minutes or do a 45 minute cardio and then I take my 10lb ankle weights and get up against a wall and stradle mainly for more flexibility since I dance but also for thigh resistance when I bring it back up. I also use ankle weights to tone my thighs and butt with different exercises. I have natural muscle in my body, but exercise really relaxes me and relieves stress. I also eat healthy, I do the 80/20, so I think that's an important aspect of looking good as well.

I workout five days a week. I like to mix up my routine so that I don't get bored.

I'm pretty small, so I base my workouts around toning up with just a bit of definition.

I'm a big fan of The Firm series, I order the DVD's off of Amazon and I do pilates for more of a long lean look.

I don't use any weights higher than ten lbs.

My new favorites are: NYC Ballet workout and Black Girls Workout Too.

My workouts never go over an hour!

I've noticed the increase on Youtube with the workout/diet vids as well. When sistas bodies are on point...they are on POINT!!

I have been afraid to increase my weights because I saw that I was getting a little muscular so I keep it at 10lbs, but I squat 75 by myself and 100 with someone with me. On freehand weights, I'll squat with 50lbs.

I agree spit-fire. Nothing beats black women at their best.

Rotfl. Black women staying in shape?
The two just don't come together.

Many of you only go to the gyms to meet non-black men. Yet still you rank last, cause they don't see you pretending to ride that arse on the bike. lmbao.

No, I do it to look hot on the arm of my man who happens to not be black. How about that?

Whatever.
But your desirability level will always equal to zero.
You are just being taken to for a 'Ride.' You know- Take it round the corner for a test drive and then squash the deal.

Lmbao. Actually i was watching a news network and saw this clip about ballet dancers and i asked the very same question.
There are absolutely none.

But black women 'LOVE' to talk about going to gyms and whole bunch of crap.

It appears that Gyms benefit women of other races other than black women.
I wonder why.

Great topic!

Sunday jogging
Nutriblast health drinks
Plenty of vitamin C
Orgasms
Some weights, not often
And what I think is the most important...dont eat a lot of fried foods.

If it was at zero, you wouldn't be arguing with me or trying to start a fight. 6 of the women I know who are black are married to white men. I understand your desperation to try and put me down with things that are not true, but I feel you need to get over and move forward. Stop acting ignorant which is typical and to be expected. This forum isn't about you and to be honest, I don't care to have any interactions with your type.

Why do many BM harass and badger people who don't care to talk to them? Then they wonder why so many are in prison and jail.

I vividly remembered when you came on topix. We all loved you.
But what happened?

I have never had Nurtiblast. Vitamin C is good.
