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!
I focus more on cardio. I do through out the day find myself doing small things.

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! :-)
