9 minute seated strength on 10/24 & 10/22 ... 30 minutes of chair exercises every day

Lorraine An attitude of gratitude makes all the difference. According to aerodynamic laws, the bumblebee cannot fly. Its body weight is not the right proportion to its wingspan. Ignoring these laws, the bee flies anyway.

I strength train on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. It consists of dumb bells and resistant bands as well as some kettle bells

I plan on doing the 9 minute seated strength exercises. I did my very first one with the dumbbells on 10/19/12. My arms were shaking but it felt great afterwards to know that I had actually finished the exercises. emoticon emoticon

I use hand weights about 3 times a week. They are light weights, but I would think they would still be strength training.

My career as a massage therapist is physically demanding.
I get a lot of strength training as I work.
Love it! Get paid to keep in shape while enjoying the results for patients and me.

Strength Training is very important when we are losing weight. When one puts weight on and doesn’t lead an active life the muscles in the body start to break down – as you lose weight you need to rebuild those muscles. Also as the body fat goes, the muscles are what shapes the body, so in order to look good one needs to build and tone the muscles.

It is recommended that one only strength trains every second day and only 3 times a week.

Strength training will not give you big muscles – to get those big muscles that the weight lifters etc have one needs to take special steroids
It should be noted that Strength training doesn’t burn calories that you can record on your exercise tracker, though you can record your exercises, however the stronger your muscles, the harder they will work and they then burn the calories during aerobic exercise.
Your body will also become more toned and firmer and your posture will improve.

Do you do any strength training?

How often each week do you do strength training?
Record here the number of exercises you do, the repeats and the days you do them.
