The old phys-ed class stand-bys
Wish that they had more information on people that have joint replacements.
As much as I HATE to work out, I do enjoy challenging myself. (If I've gotta do it, make it worth it!) Right now I'm training to walk/jog ("wog") a 5K my company is co-sponsoring. Since I can barely hold a plank for 10 seconds, maybe that should be my next challenge!
Already working towards being able to do regular push-ups and working on increasing my plank time.
Next will be pull-ups.
Thank you, that's helpful and motivating!
This was a great article. It gave lots of ideas to stay motivated with awesome resources to get started. Thanks!
I will try to do better.
I will have to do the pushups and pull ups.
I really like suggestions in this article. They are all good ideas and a good selection for everyone to find an enjoyable activity. Earlier this year I signed up for a half marathon to encourage myself to run more and to challenge myself more. I didn't expect to get sucked in into the training routine SO much! I am really enjoying it and finding out interesting things about myself. While training for a half in August, I've already completed a 10K and a 15K with a friend - we had so much fun. Now she is training for a half marathon, too.
I'm just not motivated at all to do anything which looks like exercise. I'm not lazy, I just don't like the whole movement for exercise sake thing.
However I've just done something which has clicked into something that I like but haven't been able to do since I put on so much weight and that's wearing high heels. So when I get up and walk around the house my heals will be giving my legs a little bit of a workout. My confidence should benefit a little too.
It's a start :-))
I am trying to remember everytime I walk into my kitchen to do 10 push ups against my kitchen counter. Just started this week and I'm doing great with it. !!!
I am just getting started and am overwhelmed already. I don't have exercise equipment so I ghave made my own dumbells and am starting out small and working twards emprovment.
I like to try to beat my time when I am walking. I have the Endomondo ap on my phone and it is awesome!
Just downloaded the app to start the 100 pushups. Wish me luck!
