If you do, what is your favorite type/combination?
I personally enjoy doing P90X, or just a couple of exercises on my off days.

I just lift weights at the gym 3-4 times a week. Do a bit of crossfit whenever I can.

I enjoy running, biking, weight training (I like more reps with light weights), calisthenics (push ups [though I'm not very good at them, lol], sit ups, etc), and some yoga for stretching.

My goal is to be thin-but-fit, general fitness and having a toned and slightly athletic body type.

The sports I enjoy are swimming, parkour and basketball and I'm wanting to increase my overall fitness to get better at each.

I've been putting particular emphasis on back, chest, lats and shoulder muscles for the V-look.

My shoulders are very large, wide and broad for my size, back is strong and lats are quite decent as well. Chest is on its way.

I still of course train legs and arms as well.

Height 5'9'', current weight about 165lbs.

Fitness plan is 3-4 days of weightlifting lean bulking a week, and one swim session of moderate-to-high instensity cardio a week, very rarely two.

Extremely healthy diet obviously.

Feels good bro.

Supplements I'm taking are Multi-vitamin, Whey Protein, Creatine.

Not far off from my goal, so once I finish this lean bulk I'll start cutting next week until 8% body fat, then one last lean bulk, then maybe a cut again, then maintain.

During maintaining will also focus more on other forms of physical conditioning - flexibility, stamina, co-ordination, sports training, endurance, etc.

I have recently started running and have noticed benefits in mood and focus.

I mountain bike and fence; need to commit to eating healthier though! I don't care about size, but I do want more endurance.

Mostly do conventional weight/strength training geared towards progressive overload. For cardio I'll ride my bike, jog, do sprints, jump rope, etc.

I've been exercising regularly 5 - 6 hours a week for over 10 years. Vitality and strength are very important to ones well being. But just like strength and vitality are important so is putting nutritious rich foods in you and nothing that is fake, processed and basically a bunch of crap. I focus on mainly cardio and core strength training as well as weight training and body weight training based exercising.

I lift 2-3 times a week, go mountain-biking, hiking or skying on a fairly regular basis. I like keeping lean and strong, I'm not a big mass kind of guy.

Agreed, both my wife and I cook everything from scratch, I'm not half bad and she's great. We taught the kids too and my son in particular really enjoys it.

Yes, I am trying to get my family on board with this too. Unfortunately they feel that "there is no such meal without meat" and that such things are "too expensive". I didn't know that caring for one's health is "too expensive" you spend more money on drugs every other month just to keep your body from breaking down(statin drugs, insulin, etc). If you add up the money you'd spend on crutch drugs and add up the money it takes to eat REAL foods from nature I'm sure you'd pay alot less on the real foods.

I imagine you're younger, so as someone fit and very healthy at my age, who doesn't take anything stronger then the occasional aspirin and feels (physically) 25 years younger, I can assure you it's a well-worth investment :)

Currently benching 165 kgs (was doing 175 kgs when I used steroids). I exercise about four times per week to remain mentally sane. :)
