Well you said that you like to be outside. Here in Pa. there are plenty of parks that have different workout stations on maybe a 10-15 station cycle exercise program.

Good luck on your journey

Also, if you love to get out and cycle, the Spark article "Strength training for cyclists" may have some useful ideas. www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?post=8_s

Hi Lynne

I agree with the previous poster that the Workout Generator is a great place to start. Here's a link:

generator.asp


This will give you a program based on your needs and equipment available.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

what do you mean age related? You do what your body can do. There are 85 year olds who do stuff a 20 year old can't do. Since you are a beginner, use the Spark generator to get a full body program than you can do 2-3x/week.

I want to add strength training to my program. I do sufficient cardio, with no problem. I believe if you enjoy your exercise you will have no problem keeping up with it. I love to bike, so each day its a treat to climb on and off I go. I want to add strength training. Not sure what other options are out there. It has to be age related as I'm a senior. I know I can do floor exercises but I'm looking for something I can do outside, which I will enjoy. emoticon
