No, exercise makes it so I can't poop and have to wait until later.

The only exercise I get is lifting gin and tonics, spoons and forks. I alternate the G & Ts between my left and right hand so I don't end up with a Popeye arm on one side only. So far I have ended up with Olive Oyl arms on both sides.

You and I both, Chief. In fact, the day doesn't start until I've destroyed a commode with the first diarrhea of the morning.

I don't exercise but my poops do. This morning I think they did jumping-jacks for about thirty minutes before finally emerging.

I know the phenomenon you're describing, Chief. I've been on an (almost) salads-only diet for the last few days, and my ritual explosive diarrhea seems to have given way to a less-pleasant passing of solid MiniTurds, with persistent and noxious gas all day, accompanied by a great deal of rumbling and shuffling around in my bowels which is rather disturbing.

I think they're renovating in there.

Whether I exercise or not, I can usually snap off a large mudsnake in the morning. The only exceptions are when I have to get up at 0300 for a hunting or fishing trip. That always shuts down my digestive system.

I think my guts are just the opposite of CEP's. If I'm up and at 'em at 0300, I'm shitting like there's no tomorrow. As far as excercise goes... sometimes it helps. But sometimes just knowing I wont' have a potty nearby will scare out a round or two of hot caca!

Before I tore a groin muscle, there were many a times on the treadmill that were interrupted by the need to take a dump.

Mostly I'm regular, exercise or no; case in point, a recent out-of-state trip that involved mostly driving and very little walking, let alone serious exercise: on that trip I pooped two or three times a day, good movements. But I do find, at home, that hard yard work can stimulate peristalsis and bring on an extra-satisfying dump.

Exercise makes no difference to my shitting. I lay cable after breakfast and that`s it for the day.

But if I`ve been on the beer the night before then go for a 10 mile hike, the hard walking re-ferments the beer in my guts and I`ll let rip like a backfiring car for an hour or so. No turds, though.

I don't poop very often, and I exercise even less often. Those rare instances in which I do exercise, I had no desier to poop during or afterwards.

I consider sitting on the toilet a

PD, you and me alike. I get almost no physical exertion, except for running around after 5 kids. Actually, when I think about it, that's alot of exertion.

Exercise is over rated. My only physical activity is sticking my arm out the window of a truck and sticking crap in people's mailboxes, along with the occasional 12 ounce Budweiser curl, and i shit great. If I added exercise I'd probably never come out of the can.

I've never noticed a difference with my exercise and pooping. However, it does make me have to piss like a horny cat afterward!

I think, as did Neal Armstrong, that your heart is good for just so many beats in a lifetime. When you exercise it speeds up your heart, thus shortening your life. For a long and happy life kick back in front of the TV with a bag of chips and a gin & tonic.

Exercise speeds up your metabolism so I assume it does make a difference in pooping

It does, to some degree, depend on the exercise. Walking doesn't do it, but floor exercises - crunches, squats, etc. - they get the job done. Although I do notice a textural change from the norm on non-aerobic days.

The force of gravity and the increased metabolism both have an effect of opening the floodgates. Many times after a long hike through the hills, I return home to lay a large log. This doesn't always happen, which is why I put "sometimes" for my answer. Exercise has many benefits, one of which can be counted as large, solid poops!

I find that working with gravity helps me poop. I often enjoy a good poop in the morning. So to ensure this happens, some verticle time is required in order to proceed with my daily activities. I mean, I gotta poop before I start my day. I've discovered, that jumping up and down cuts my required verticle time in half--allowing me an extra 10 minutes of horizontal time. Thus I have concluded, that for maximum effiiency in my required morning poo, a good bounce on the trampoline does the trick.

I was honestly heartbroken that the answer that most fit me wasn't in this survey: I poop WHILE exercising! And this is a shit story. For the last several years, every time I run, I get the sudden urge to make diarrhea. So when I was in Navy ROTC, and we'd be running for our PT Test, I'd be about 3/4 miles into my mile and a half run and shit my pants every fucking time. It was so embarrasing. So, needless to say, I'm neither in ROTC or the navy period. Aside from the shitting while running, I don't think my belly would handle the navy food either. Oh well.

I run late at night, right before bedtime. From the moment I get home (and I suppose through the night), I have SuperFarts, and the next morning, oh man, as soon as I put food in my mouth, the toilet wants to run for cover. I usually can't wait to finish eating breakfast. The mornings after nights I don't run, it's not nearly that neat.

Talk about someone who has no life, coming to a site that advertises the fact that it specializes in intellectual poop humor and then complaining because the comments are not serious.

I've heard exercise is supposed to help. I was seeing a personal trainer for a year and a half though and I can say it really didn't help me much in that department. Didn't start having that until about halfway through my time with my trainer. And let me tell you, there was a reason I referred to our sessions as "ass-kickings"! So he wasn't being a wimp with me.

However... doing squats above the toilet might help...

I exercise to avoid the clutches of the medical profession. The more I exercise, the more I hate doing it. However, to keep any hard fought ground dervived from exercise, I watch what I eat. Eating better means pooping better. So exercise does indirectly correlate to better pooping.

Ah, I'm in the search for any exercise that would help me remove all the Mess in my system straight away. My System feels blocked and heavy - if only someone could suggest a few exercises to exercise that area I'd be a very very happy chappy

The main exercise I get is gardening, which involves kneeling, reaching, pulling, digging, and related motions. I don't notice a time relation between gardening and pooping, since I am pretty regular; but sometimes the day after strenuous garden work, I sometimes have 2 movements. (I worked outside yesterday, and I now have a strong urge to poop . . .)

Gardening is my only real exercise, and it has no bearing on my urge to poop. Most of the time it feels more like gravity is the main stimulus.

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

Excercise can help you let loose a couple logs, but its stretching and massaging the torso and organs that really gets my shit pumpin. Try sitting with legs crossed, or bent at 90 degrees, if a chair is better for you. Put Your hands on your knees, and slowly rotate on your hips, keeping your shoulders level, going far forward back and to the sides, this stimulates the release of enzymes from glands, massages and loosens the organ walls and gets you ready to rock out on the commode. Happy dumping, stay limber, regardless your size, its a matter of psychological health
