    The article was so motivating to me...getting out of bed now to start my 10 mins.
    Thanks so much! - 12/20/2016 6:45:43 PM
  • Great advice. I just love it! I am revamping my exercises again and this fits right in! Thank you so much!!! - 10/18/2016 9:11:01 AM
  • I'm a big advocate of "Just 10 Minutes a Day". When I began this, I most always did 30, but I knew I didn't have to feel guilty if I stopped at 10. This kept my motivation up. Within 2 or 3 weeks, my energy level was up and I was HOOKED. - 10/13/2016 1:28:18 PM
  • Best to listen to your body, some times that spark just isn't there. You can feel it wit the first exercise, do not push yourself, there's always another day, however.
    This is for anyone that is not seeing results, the elderly that just is having a hard time getting started.
    I have found that anyone IMO can attain results if they do their best. I am in my late 70's, have been weight training for a while. I have increased strength, staminal, and muscle size by doing a regimented exercise program.
    Increase weight after each set, then decrease weight in the latter sets, works for me, also slow lifts, up and down also accelerates results, my shirts are tighter, not from my gut, but from my shoulders, no brag, just the fact that muscles can grow at any age. - 10/13/2016 11:37:41 AM
  • This works! When I started FIVE years ago my first focus was on eating healthy most of the time. Moving more was something I wanted to do but couldn't see how I'd fit in a 60 minute workout. So I started taking a 10 min walk before I left for work. then I added a 10 min walk after lunch. Eventually bought a pedometer and got up to 10,000 steps/day and if I walked briskly for at least 10 mins it would track "aerobic minutes" and I ended up getting at least 60 of those each day. - 10/13/2016 7:35:58 AM
  • Is there a way to set up the meal plan for a vegetarian? - 5/23/2016 7:46:17 PM
  • I workout six times a week (and these are challenging workouts!) and have one day rest. As a result I get sent articles on how to start exercising?? - 3/31/2016 9:08:35 AM
  • I found the idea of making exercise a daily habit first, and then increasing your duration and intensity absolutely brilliant. I always did it the other way round, and could never keep up the consistency. I'm definitely going to try this, and see how long an exercise streak I can track. Thank you again for this mind changing idea. - 10/9/2015 3:43:49 PM
  • Some of the workouts are good. I would never jog or do jumping jacks but quick marching in place would substitute. The alarm bells went off however when I saw 25 pushups. That's a bit much for a beginner who may not have done pushups. I can't do that many on a bet, and wouldn't be able to because of problems with my shoulders. Also, why 7 workouts? Doesn't anyone believe in a day of rest anymore? 6 is plenty. - 6/7/2015 6:09:16 PM

  • This is great. Some I am going to do this morning. I saved it. But the jumping jacks and a couple more I have to do later because my knee went from under me on Monday and it's not to good. - 6/6/2013 7:04:45 AM
  • I have been walking alot. My job requires alot of walking and standing. I use the walking to my advantage . I have been able for three weeks to lose 2- 3 lbs a week. I just hope I can keep it off and burn more calories. - 4/23/2013 1:35:50 AM
