I’ve found the ACE exercise library to be super helpful when creating my workout circuits. You can search for exercises based on the part of your body you want to work, the equipment (or lack thereof) you have, and difficulty level.

Personally, I prefer to do full-body workouts twice a week rather than focusing on one area of the body at a time.

I am with Coach Jen. There is no need to split up your strength training to ensure you hit everything. A good full body routine 2 to 3 days a week is sufficient.

I’d start with walking and increase pace and distance as you progress. Get some hand weights for strength training and increase as your body tolerates. Start small, you can always add. Don’t try to do everything at once.

Hi Rachel

You might consider doing a full body routine 2-3 times per week. You can get a good workout in 5-6 exercises, and typically that's a less overwhelming way to start versus trying to do a more advanced split routine where you divide your workouts by body part.

Let us know if you'd like help with some full body routine suggestions.

I've only been here a few months and know nothing about exercise lol.

Is there a list or cheat sheet of what areas there are to work on? Like I don't want an all in one workout. I want a list of areas where I can say this day I will work on X area. And I can look at the list every day so that I know what I'm working on instead of just being overwhelmed.
