So,

I noticed there hasn't been too much activity here, so I decided to post my fave fitness videos.

Perhaps someone has been lurking... :lurk:

My immediate goals are to try to stay the same weight but tone/muscle up.

So far, my routine includes:

Full Body Strength Training


Awesome Chest Workout

Butt/Thigh Workout

Pro Ana Squat Challenge

Yoga For Strength & Energy

I also do a daily walk to warm up.

What are your fave fitness / workout routines and/or videos?
Please share.

    I do various things. I love walking and will walk the track at the gym or the outside track at the high school, I will walk around town or hike in the woods.
    I take or teach 3-4 classes a week at the gym (classic aerobics, weights, circuits, cycling, yoga).
    I'm a post menopausal woman fighting weight gain and flab and middle age spread. But I'm healthy, I eat healthy (with not so healthy treats thrown in), I love to cook and make an effort not to eat out too much, I work out, my weight is normal for my height (tho I'm still not happy with it).
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    I have a book called "8 Minutes In The Morning" I want to start working out with. I also just got on Medicare & with my insurance I can join what is called Silver Sneakers at a gym very close by me. I use to walk a lot, but my energy level has been down lately. I'm doing good to walk dogs right now.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    My current work out routine:

    Warm up 7 days a week
    Clarissa May's bikini body video warm up stretches

    Abs and Back (Day 1, 3)
    Crunches
    Heel Touches
    Twists
    Planks
    Mountain Climbers
    Back Lifts
    Bridges

    Arms and Legs (Day 2, 4)
    Push Ups
    Leg Lifts & Pulses
    Fire Hydrants
    Sumo Squats
    Wall sit

    Cool Down 7 Days a week
    Fitness Blender Yoga infused Workout (stretch training)

    I'm actually built like Clarissa may, so loosing weight is never a problem for me. I just want to feel better and keep the weight I got. I want to become more flexible, so I'm really working on that. I'm also working on having a fluid thigh gap. I have always had a thigh gap, but right up at the top is an awkward bit of fat or flab I wish to get rid of.

    Fitness Blender. I found them six years ago and have never looked back. Hands down best videos/programs out there. They have made a stand to keeping fitness affordable and for everyone. I love using their fitness schedules. Everyday a different video so I don't get bored. When inspiration hits I will put together my own plan using their videos, but mostly I'm lazy and just do the plans they put together.

    Currently I'm doing the Couch to 5k running plan with the 5k Runner app. It's not easy but I've always wanted to be able to run, so it's worth it! I'm currently on week 3.

    In the near future I hope to add weightlifting (with the help of a friend who's very experienced), swimming, and hiking. Keeping my hair healthy & out of the way during exercise is a struggle, but I'm learning!

    I have trained 5 days a week for the past 20 years, starting in my early 20s. My focus is on strength training as it's what I really enjoy, but i also add in HIIT cardio for fitness (spin, stairmaster, stepper).

    Monday - Back and 30 mins cardio
    Tuesday - Shoulders and Abs
    Wednesday - Legs and 20 mins cardio
    Thursday - Biceps/triceps
    Friday - Chest, Abs and Spin

    My goal is always to gain strength and definition, usually im the only girl in the weights room! But I have noticed that more women seem to be switching on to the benefits of strength training which is very encouraging. Strong is beautiful!

    Ok, it's been awhile and it's nearing the end of the year so maybe it's time to revive this thread and think about our fitness goals for 2018? 
    I'm currently 60 years old and still fighting post menopausal flab. Most of my adult life I was around 120 lbs, never worked out other than lots of walking and hiking, ate and drank what I wanted. Mid-50's that all changed. Now I fight to stay a steady 150 lbs and am constantly fighting extra flab in the middle area. I love to cook and I eat healthy, fresh, homemade, real food much of the time. But I also splurge and eat chicken wings and fries and drink booze a day or 2 a week. 
    I didn't start going to the gym until my early 50's when I decided to do a marathon at 52 and needed a place to train over the winter. Now I teach low impact aerobics and occasionally yoga at 2 gyms. I'm retiring for the one gym at the end of the year so I can get back to walking/running after work when the weather is nice. I teach at the other gyms in the late morning before I go to my real job. I've also been doing landscaping work over the summers for many years so that also gives me a workout. But I'm retiring from that at the end of 2018. So I usually work out anywhere from 4 to 8 hours a week. I'm not really into running but I do a few 5Ks over the summer, mostly walking with some running. 
    Come 2018 I just want to keep up what I'm doing and maybe train a little harder for the 5Ks. 
    What are your plans/goals for 2018?

    My plan is to continue on with my yoga regime. I am a member at the  Moksha Hot Yoga studio in my town. I also have a favorite on-line yoga instructor for the days when the hot room can be too hot. I try to get a good walk in every day, not a power walk or anything like that, just a nice brisk walk. The fresh air helps me to sleep better.
