  • It says I read the article in March, but i don't remember reading it before. I enjoyed it and feel that I am still a beginner. At my age, I may never progress any farther.!
    Very informative. - 10/9/2010 11:23:15 AM
  • Great article! I'm reading a lot about strength training and working out with a small weight-lifting class. Up til now, that part of the gym was a black box to me. I ignored it.

    Weight-lifting is fantastic. It makes my gym workouts far more interesting because I mix it up every day. I appreciate and learn from other gym members--many of those exercises are a LOT harder than they look, I had no idea. My body is sculpting as I'm losing weight. At 5'6" and 214 lbs, I'm obese. But I'm a lot stronger than the skinny girls taking the weight training with me. Yay! - 3/3/2010 10:54:57 AM
  • I much appreciate this article. Some things here that I know and many more explained with clarity. The information is put together so well in a format that I can understand. I have been trying to grab back some of my muscle strength after a lifetime of not looking after myself at all so it is exactly what I need. - 10/16/2009 11:21:51 AM
  • The article would have helped me more if strenghth training with water weights in the pool were included. - 7/9/2009 9:01:04 AM
    This article is exactly what I have needed!! I now understand!! Thanks soooo much. - 3/14/2009 10:35:35 AM
  • Excellent article. Good Information explained very well. Makes it all crystal clear .!! - 2/26/2009 10:33:32 AM
  • Excellent and detailed article, however it may be too technical for the beginner. It might be easier for the beginner if the topics were broke into separate articles or more examples given. I understand it myself but I just know from reading the Spark message boards that strength training seems to really confuse people. - 10/2/2008 12:24:57 PM
    Jen always gives advice that I agree with. I liked this article a great deal. It explained many things about weight training that I was not sure about - like what core means. I keep hearing this term everywhere, but never really understood the exact muscles involved. I didn't even note that this was her article until I finished it - it does not surprise me at all. I am a big fan of Jen's. - 7/27/2008 1:23:30 AM
  • Great article. - 6/14/2008 1:14:38 AM
  • Whoa! I had no idea about "The Detraining Principle: After consistent strength training stops, you will eventually lose the strength that you built two weeks or less!" Thx for that warning! Need to be consistent for the rest of my life! - 3/31/2008 12:09:43 PM
