When I strength train I schedule what muscle group to focus on, but then I just use what ever machines are available for that group that day. This has helped me get more organization. I definitely think it is better to plan out each exercise, rather than just take what is available. I'll be using the fitness plan generator more often. Thanks for getting me organized!
With you on my team and me on yours we are bound to succeed!
This is a great idea...I'm always at a loss as to what exercises I can do without having to have weights or a gym membership. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

We should focus our attention on strength training more often. Building muscle makes your body more efficient in burning calories. General rules are to never strength train the muscles two days in a row and you should do st at least 3 days a week.
I will post a new exercise daily. Pick which one you like. Try to do at least 3 of them.
Today let's start with the basics.
Lower body. I generated a simply workout. 2 exercises 10 minutes.
Squats and lunges. If this is two basic take i up a level and add cardio in between, think jumping jacks
