Here's a tip on exercising and the importance of creating a sustainable workout program.
Make it Sustainable
If there's something you don't like to do (which, on the sliding scale of "work out preferences" basically means the stuff you'd rather just get fat and lazy over instead of doing) then figure out a way to accomplish the same thing in a way that you enjoy or doesn't give you pain. For example: I hate running and think it's one of the dumbest things to go jogging ("I believe it's a soft 'j'"), but if I absolutely have to get my cardio endurance up then I prefer to hit a stationary bike and do High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT for short), which is where you go really hard for short bursts and rest for short bursts and over time work your way up to 15 or 20 minutes of working out.Also, my shoulders hurt a little when I do the seated military press, so rather than do that I do the Clean & Press or some alternatives with dumbbells.
There's always alternatives, just think of what the end goal is and figure out a new path that's preferable. The one thing I've learned is that exercising HAS to be sustainable, making yourself do things you loathe will probably end before you've reached your goals, and even then you'll probably probably revert and lose your progress once you've hit the target.
Whatever you do, just ask yourself: Is this something I'll be able to maintain/keep up?
That's the million dollar question.
