Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Thought I'd bump this thread. I lift weights 5 times a week, usually before my morning session in my home gym. Been doing so for about 10 months now. Used to weigh 270lbs, now down to a cool 198. Got the girls going nuts.

Anyone else lift before their morning session? I wake up at 5:30AM everyday for it. Takes some getting used to, but it is the GOAT time to work out. Test is always higher in the AM, so my workouts are beast-like.

anybody else since 2015?

it's time to re-activate this thread... Running in the autumn evening is easier only if one is convinced there are others out there, just as crazy

I lift just before market close until I pick up my son from elementary, 2-3 days a week in my garage. Would like to do 4 days ,but that's harder to be consistent with.

I am up before 4 every day and so some yoga and pushups, just to get the blood flowing.
Later in the morning I do a half hour to an hour of walking. Walking is my core exercise.

I have a very good uphill walk that I do about once a week. It has one pitch of about 100 M that is about a 20% grade. I like to sprint that one. If I am feeling a lot of pep I will do a set of sprints on that section, and maybe a couple of other pitches on the route to the top of the hill. Whole walk takes about three hours, ending with a soak at hot springs.

I prefer the short sprints to jogging.

I also do sprints on the stairmaster in preparation for weight training.

I am in the gym about two or three times a week working out on machines and barbells. My number one goal at this point in the training, since I am now a senior, is to not get injured. So I am taking it slow and steady. Usually I do a set of
yoga and meditation at the gym before weightraining.
