Hi!
I've been doing my ST five days a week. I do the upper body on Mon. and Wed., the lower body on Tues. and Thurs., and the core on Fri. It works best that way for me. I'm never sore everywhere.lol



What if I woke up with only what I thanked God for yesterday?
Gratitude and exercise are the best medicines.

I use Curves for the majority of strength training. I go 2-3 times a week. The new club I joined (from moving) has the Smart program that is computerized and really kicks your butt! I love it.

Started my new program last Saturday. This is what I've been doing, and plan to keep doing

Saturday - Abs
Monday - Lower body
Wednesday - Upper body

Doing about 30 minutes each session, and when I am no longer getting as sore I will up the reps or the time to compensate. I didn't do so good this week, but I also like to add some yoga. Great strength training in that!

We are 7 days into October... any strength training going on out there? I have to admit, not much for me either. But, I did get on the ball today... literally! :-) I used my stability ball to do two sets of crunches. Then, I also did two sets each of dumbbell flys and chest presses with the dumbbells. This was after I did 35 minutes of cardio on my elliptical! Yay!

Get the DVD's going. Since they canceled Guiding Light, that gives me about an hour to do something useful. The dog and I already do 3 10 minutes walks around our 4 acre land.

I am going to start using my stability ball. Only bought it last April and haven't pumped it up yet! emoticon

Besides using the ball for exercises, I am also going to use it for my computer chair if it provides the right height for me.

I also want to start using this 15 minute work out when I can. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness

Hi all... let's do something a little different for this month's challenge. Let's focus on Strength Training which is a very important component to fitness that many of us skip (I know I do!!). So this month, please use this thread to post your strength training exercises and support each other.

I think a good goal (and one recommended by SparkPeople) is to do at least 2 days of strength training at week giving yourself at least one "rest" day in-between. If you are already consistently doing this... push yourself to do 3 days a week and watch those muscles get toned and sleek! :-)

See these Spark articles for more info and ideas:
