joined Official January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge Team
this will give me a 7-15 minute strength 6 days a week. The videos are great because they work all muscles in the body.

Looks like I'm not going to be able to put in the time to pump up my ST this week or next. I'll have to try the challenge another time.

Good luck to the rest of you!

I really want to get back into kettle bell strength training so I will try to do 3 of the SP videos on that this week, and report back as I do.
KB is whole body ST, if I follow the workout routine I used to do, but I need to poke around and see if I can find one for each - upper, core and lower body - on here.
I'll be back to let you know how it goes.
Have a great week all!

I injured my shoulder a couple of months ago and I'm doing limited upper body ST. I will attempt to get 3 days of ST in this week. I've kinda slacked off on ST since I hurt my shoulder.
Tuesday 35 minutes (done Monday)
Thursday 25 minutes
Saturday - Not well thought out. I need to change this to Sunday, which will be next week (technically).
I had a meltdown last night and didn't get any ST in. I will do some tonight and plan to get some ST in on Wed and Fri this week.

Hi NEW_ME_FOREVER,

I definitely need to do this, as i have to get fit & lose the weight for my sister's wedding as i am her Bridesmaid. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Its the sound of the underground, & we gotta fight for this love, before we breakaway, cos silence is golden, & its only words, & love will keep us together, on a night like this, wow, hey baby, my baby love, save your kisses for me, or its goodbye cruel world, forever & ever, goodbye my love.

These are all my favourite song titles, all put 2gether, as a kind of ode/poem, Melanie Louise Jackson (aka Grease 31)
