I'm rocking the cardio, on the 22nd day of a fitness streak, but I know strength training is important too.
I'm having trouble getting motivated to do strength training and, furthermore, don't really know what I can do at home with just a set of dumbbells (which is the only equipment I currently have for strength training). I have issues with my joints, so yoga, pilates, and other types of exercise that require me to support my own weight on my joints are out.
Also, I need to work my lower body more than my upper body, which gets quite a bit of toning from my daily rowing routine.
Can anyone help me get started on this? Even just a few suggestions for core and lower-body strength training I can do at home would be much appreciated!
May I also say that while I enjoy cardio, I pretty much hate strength training. So, motivation and encouragement also are welcome!
