Exercising


Monday, July 29, 2013

When it comes to exercise, I am really good at cardio, where I walk anywhere from 12 to 15 miles a week. However, I could definitely use some improvement in strength and flexibility training, where I don't do much of anything at all.

    I always think if I like a thing, of course other people will - and I'm often wrong about that. However, for me, strength training is VERY gratifying and encouraging. Progress is completely trackable and the feeling of increased strength and endurance in your body makes you want to keep on & see how far you can take it. At least that's my experience so far. It's a different kind of good feeling than cardio gives - both are wonderful.

    I have the same problem. It is just that i don't think to do it even when I say I am going to.

My problem is the same a yours I love walking.

Good luck maybe we can both get our heads round it.

    Get started on a program! You can use the workout generator on here to help guide you. You decide what equipment you want to use, and what part of the body you want work to work on such as core, upper or lower.
I love doing strength training now! It makes me feel really good! I recommend you try it too! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Get some hand weights. You can do a lot of different exercises while you walk. If you come across a ledge while you are walking you can do arm dips, push ups, step ups (stepping up on the ledge then back down alternating legs). Hope you can use some of these. emoticon
