Whats a good routine for general athletiscism, like swimming and running ?
You can start by swimming and running more. It's not rocket science.
I'd do biking over running, personally. Running is so boring and wrecks your knees on asphalt.
A good routine is one that you enjoy, so you will do it regularly. Pick a sport you love and excel at it.
Ofcourse doing those things will be the best help, but to focus only on them would be close minded, weights can be a definite help
getting rid of the shoes when you run
Swimming would be my first choice.
If you can find a track with recently laid soft turf then that is fine, but don't go running around the city. Also a grassy field would do fine as long as the soil isn't too hard.
As for overall athleticism, like everyone said swimming and running will help the most. If you want to do more you can always incorporate pushups variations, dips, pull ups, chin ups, shrugs, rows, etc. If you don't want to do weights you can do the shrugs/rows with a heavy elastic resistence band. That's the basic workout I do just to keep strong between hours on the punching bag. For abs I do Leg raises, crunches, leg raise variations like bringing knees to the opposite side in order to work obliques, etc.
For legs I think spending an hour 3 times a week kickboxing an 100 lb punching bag is sufficient. For you, running/swimming (and/or biking) will be more than enough to keep your legs strong.
Make sure you stretch even more to compensate for the extra work.
This is probably the first time I've ever seen you post anything that is remotely funny. I'm so damn proud that I could cry
I hate you
It's all part of the plan to get him posting more which will then allow us to expose him for the bafoon that he is. This will then give us more ammunition to get him banned
DEATH TO KOTU!!!!!
