SparkPeople's Workout Generator will give you a strength program based on your goals. Here's a link:

If you click on Articles and Videos at the top of this page and go to Videos, Coach Nicole has some strength videos that would also give you a good start.

Hope that helps,

I'm a big fan of body weight strength training since it doesn't require extra equipment. "You Are Your Own Gym" by Mark Lauren is my favorite resource.

Thanks - I have P90X but I'm not into extreme body building, just an average 55 year old trying to keep well toned. I dropped my weight from 214 to 169lbs and exercise 5 days a week. I've been doing mostly aerobic training but now feel I can introduce strength every other day. I like the P90x training style but I do find it really hard. I also have bad arthritic knees from too much squash and a skiing accident years ago.

Started at 214lbs Jan 1, 2013. Now 172 in maintenance, lowest achieved weight 169 which was second goal after I realized more could go around 180lbs.

P90X is a good strength set. Plus you can keep upping your weight as you improve.

I am interested in any workouts that build physical strength now I have achieved my weight goal. Any suggestions within Sparkpeople on good strength training programmes/videos?
