I just started the exercises in the spark book.
It looked easy but the plank is a killer emoticon
My doctor gave me exercises for my core today because my back hurts so hopefully i'll be consistent on those.
I've wanted to do cardio,but,where does the time go?
I just don't have enough time in the day to do everything! emoticon

8/03: I am pretty proud of myself for being on my 3rd day streak for this month. I am keeping to doing a yoga workout 1st thing in the morning using one of my dvds.

Today, I focused on full body strength but using the stability ball. I took advantage of the pre-made strength workouts offered in the SP workout generator and chose the Ball Challenge for today, but instead of doing 2 sets of 15 reps for each exercise I increased it to 3 sets of 15 to get my muscles fatigued and a good sweat going.

So emoticon

I would like to join. I will be doing strength training on Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and cardio on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. If I'm faithful with this I may add another day of cardio next month.

Thanks for this challenge...this is something I need to give more focus. I would like to do strength training 3X week along with cardio 5X week. Can you help me to find the strength training videos quickly and easily?

8/02: I chose today to do upper body using the SP exercise demos to create a workout and used my 8 lbs. weights.
I did 2 sets of 15 reps for each exercise-
wall push ups
seated dumbbell concentrated bicep curls (4 stages full curl, lower half curl, top half curl, full curl)
dumbbell wrist curls
lying tricep lifts
seated dumbbell row

This took me 20 minutes with a cooldown/stretch and I could feel the muscle fatigue.

Hi team,
After taking an honest look at myself and my summer workout routine compared to last year I am slacking off. To remedy this and to get some mojo back in the strength department I am setting myself this challenge. Anyone is welcome to join in for the month of August and see if we can rebuild our own personal strength training routines for stronger bodies.

Goal is: using either the SparkPeople videos or exercise demos choose at least 3 exercises for a body area- upper body, lower body, or core. Decide which area you want to focus on for that day or if you are aiming for a full body workout.

Once you do it report back with either an emoticon or post on what you chose and how you did.

The idea is to start small at the beginning of the month and report at the end if results are showing either in increased strength, tone, or having seeing you need to add more exercises to get to fatigue. All show a great improvement in your fitness level.
