Strength Training

I’m trying to add more strength training to my workout routine, and although I get my cardio by teaching Turbo Kick, PiYo, and Bootcamp style classes I need to find a way to hold myself accountable. Here is my challenge. Do you have this problem while trying to get in your strength training? With all my knee and back issues, I have had a difficult time figuring out what to do to instead of all the squats and lunges that are in a lot of the home workout programs I love so much. They often seem to aggravate my issues even more. We all have issues and sometimes modifying is easier said than done. I’m thinking of developing a type of home workout that uses items you have around the house. I’m coming up with ideas to create a strength training program you can do from home. For example, using paper plates, bands, even water bottles to do your strength training at home. I’m going to develop a super easy program that will be thirty minutes of strength training. Here is the deal, I want to develop a super easy workout that gives you killer workout. I don’t like to do a set and sit, where you do a set and then sit and wait. I like to do what I call super-sets to make the most of my workout time. It’s working two muscle groups (upper and lower body for instance) at the same time and gets your heart rate up as well. I can usually do a full body workout, with consists of working every single muscle group two to three times. I’m excited to share with you what I come up with and will be posting more soon. I look forward to holding myself accountable with regards to strength training and will be posting and promoting what I come up with soon. holly.hierman@gmail.com
