10 Minute Daily ST Commitment

Monday, August 11, 2014

As most of you know, I have no problem doing lots of cardio exercise every day, as I walk 20-25 miles each week on my virtual walk.

ST is a different matter. Although I have a stability ball, resistance bands, free weights, a medicine ball and a brand new kettlebell, I often go 4-5-6 days without using them.

I am determined to reach my goal of 150 lbs. by March 31, 2015, and believe that regular ST is essential to achieve that goal... so today I joined Spark Guy's 10-Minute Team and all its challenges.

I really hesitated before doing this, because I hate to fail, but I know it's the logical next step... And darn it, I WILL DO THIS!

    I too have trouble doing the ST exercises that I SHOULD... Most of the time I only get as far as "Good Intentions" but my cardio I enjoy doing an hour of that most days. Keep me posted on how you are doing with this new challenge... Maybe you can motivate me to develop a good 10-minute habit!!!

    For ST at home I really like using a video. Or at least find some good music to go with it. Also, are you alternating muscle groups if you're doing it every day?

    Hi there Gail
a 10 min workout with a kettle bell is one heck of a workout- both cardio and ST combined and man do you work off come calories BIG TIME .........because you're using several muscle groups at once. So your workouts can be shorter but more effective.

Great that you've made the 10 min committment- you'll soon see that stretch to 15,20................ emoticon emoticon
I have every faith in you! emoticon
