  • No matter what you think, no matter how you feel, the truth is you CAN do this.
  • Great article! I couldn't agree more. Makes a major difference in the long run.
    Good article. It will help me expand my weight program to help my fitness. Thanks for a well-written article.
  • Thanks for the info. I don't exercise anymore with weights. I have to start back.
  • Good article, it confirmed some thing for ordinary people who are now adding strength training to exercise routine. Example whether to lift heavy or light weights, when to rest and for how long, the order of the exercise. So newbies could benefit from article.
  • I think this is good material in one sense, HOWEVER, I agree w/ a previous poster, "How is an untrained person supposed to apply / use this information???"

    This is NOT helpful because I don't have the training of progression, nor the knowledge of "do this to build this." -- Not sure what is the purpose of this article!
    This article was very informative. Although I do weight training three times a week, I did not realize it benefits your heart, tendons, and ligaments. As an older person, this is very important to me because I want to do everything possible to avoid injury.
    The information about core and assistance exercise was also new to me. Part of my weight training is Les Mills' Body Pump, where the sequence is Squats, Chest, Back/Glutes & Hams, Triceps, Biceps, Lunges, Shoulders, Abs. After reading Mr. Soloff's article, I have more understanding about this sequence. Thank You!
  • How is a normal person supposed to go about this process? Even pr
  • This was a very good article. I really appreciate when there is solid useful information, not just fluff, in an article so I'd like to see more from this author. A related series of articles would be a great idea. He is obviously well qualified and will rank at the top of my list of favorite Spark authors, along with Dean Anderson and Becky Hand.
  • This article convinces me that having a personal trainer is pretty important. Kind of scares me away from any "do-it-yourself" training plans.
    I keep looking for information on setting a balanced workout. I am not seeing a definitive balanced workout.
  • I was hoping for a link or a list of an idea example workout for a non-athletic office worker trying to stay in reasonable shape.
  • This article would've been better if it actually had some depth to it. It just seems to reiterate the same common knowledge that's been touted for decades - nothing new; no original ideas.
  • Great article... I just started workouts with a kettlebell and love it. I am really out of shape physically, and have a 10 lb. bell. I am used to working out but illness took me away from it. I am back exercising and I do so with extreme caution knowing the condition my body is in. I am gradually adding exercises to my regimine and I listen to my body.
    Articule very helpful! If you have not excerise with wgts this a good pointer.
