    Great tool! I too printed this article. My partner and I walk three miles everyday with a set of weights in hand; I was telling her this morning that I needed to increase my weights since they were not challenging anymore. I also wanted to add strength training but did not know where to start. I printed exercises, put them in document protectors and and place in a binder for everday use. Thanks again SP. //Cynthia//

    What would be wonderful is to add a full body workout to the line-up...like Nordic Walking. It provides a different leg and arm movement than the exercises listed plus engages the core, provides balance and stability to those with balance issues.
  • I always have the issue that I barely feel as if I'm barely working the muscles I'm targeting!!!

    how often should i do these exercises - every other day, daily, 3 times a week?
  • I've had trainers over the years use similar workout variations. They are good and alleviate boredom. Mixed it up with running on the tread mill or elliptical for three minutes between each set, can really add challenge to the set.
  • Only one fault I can find with this. . .
    They should put the exercises in order you should do them. I.e larger muscle groups should be first.
  • Good tool !!, thank you :)

    Great article.

    I get bored easily so I have a number of workout videos and usually do one for two days and then switch. I think the longest I have ever done the same one is four days. Also, when I go to the gym, I do the treadmill and another machine, sometimes the stepper, sometimes the elliptical, just for a difference each day. I'ts good to know that variaty is good for the body too, and not just only becasue I get bored!

    And the chart is a great help too!
  • Great idea! In the past, I would get bored with my routine. Since finding SP I have been changing my routine fairly often--mostly when I see a different exercise on SP. There are a LOT of exercises on SP and the article will tell you what part(s) of your body will benefit from that particular exercise. Not only do the articles describe how to do the exercise properly, but most also include a video demonstration. The SP Exercises and SP Recipes are my favorite parts of SP.
  • Wow, this is a good article, gives ideas on workouts, especially for me who sometimes clueless to choose different workouts that's good for me.
  • thank you for this article, being new to exercising I'm sure I'll find this very helpful.

    I love this!! I will be using this workout plan and I have already added some of the exercises I do to it so I can still do what works, but have some variety.
  • This looks like a great article. I have trouble trying to figure out which exercise to do next, so this will definitely help me.
  • I love this idea! I am always looking to change up my workouts but don't really know enough about which exercises work what muscles, so I'm afraid of doing unbalanced workouts. This gives me a great template to work from.
  • This is a great idea. I never thought of it. I've saved it as a favorite.
