Sounds good to me. I promised myself back in August to ADD strength training to my regimen to help my bone density. Haven't gotten started. Perhaps this is what I needed to get going!

Cindi, when you get ready to do the exercises, go to your fitness page and enter them for the day, just like you do for your cardio. A little box that says demo will be to the left of each exercise on your page then. Just click on that and it will show you how to do each one. See if that helps you out, if not let me know. You can also probably google the exercise name and usually find how to videos of exercises in youtube. Don't overdo it though, the idea is to challenge yourself without hurting yourself. If you're new to this try starting out with a lighter weight or less reps. Your body will tell you when you've had enough or if you're not working your muscles enough to feel it. I'm excited to be starting this because they say the more muscle you have the more fat you burn, It speeds up your metabolism. I'm all for that. emoticon

If you will choose the exercises I will be happy to join you. I, too, will start on Monday. I will be just starting on strength training, so, I will do the best that I can.

Where can I find just how to do these ?

Thanks,
Cindi

I don't know about you all but, I haven't been doing any strength training lately. I know I really need to though. It really tones your body and gives you a nice defined look. SO, On that note, I'm going to begin a 3 times per week strength training routine. I'm going to do 2 exercises for each body part each time and then change those 2 exercises for 2 new ones the following week. If anyone is interested in joining me on this feel free to post your progress here if you want. I'm going to begin my first week on Monday. Just remember to always have a day of rest in between. This is my first week's workout:

I've decided to add in a strength training challenge to go along with the aerobic activity. Do as many of these as you can even if you can't finish and post your totals here. Try to do this 3 times in a week , with a day of rest in between.

Core Exercises:
Dumbbell Side bends 3 sets of 30
Hip Flexor 3 sets of 30

Upper Body Exercises:
Bicep Curls 3 sets of 30
Boxer 3 sets of 30

Lower Body Exercises:
Bridges 3 sets of 30
Calf Raises 3 sets of 30
