Question re: building strength and weight amount.
After doing the Walk Strong original 6 week program 2 times, and now in my second round of Walk Strong 2.0, I feel like I’m not building strength. I progressed from 5 to 7 lbs on the heavy weights and from 1-2 to 3 lbs for my light weights, but that bump up was at least 3 months ago and it is still challenging for me. I’m consistent with the workout schedule. Overall I’m happy with the system but am wondering if I am stuck somehow, and if so, what I should do about it. I’m 59 years old. My diet is good, but I still have 30 lbs to lose. Actually, I’ve been a little stuck on that front also.
How do you all stay motivated? I am struggling so badly. I have gained 30 pound after losing 20 🙁
I appreciate your input
I have only read wonderful things about Jessica Smith’s videos but the more I read the more I get terribly confused on what video to purchase. I am a 35 year old female, have no health issues or physical limitations, and want to lose weight. I LOVE/NEED the day to day calendar workouts to tell me exactly what to do and when to do, and want videos that include both cardio and strength multiple times throughout each week.
Each video summary sounds so beneficial but was looking for some advice from someone more knowledgeable and experienced with the program than myself. 🙂
I found this workout and system using MyFitness Pal. I need to restart my commitment to myself as I’ve gained a lot of weight over the last two years. I’ve had two knee replacements in the last three years. I’m on the heavier side of life overall. But, now I’m back up to 260lbs after being at 210 for five years. In 2006, I was 325 lbs but lost a lot of weight through a medically sponsored program.
I want to get back to at least the 210 but I’m now 55 and have two fake knees. Is this program okay? How do people find motiviation to start and stay going? I’m seriously lacking motivation. I feel desperate. I’m tired all the time but I know it’s because I’m not healthy. I used to ride 20 miles on my bike a few times a week and now riding my bike sounds like work.
I’ve learned that focusing on activity makes everything else like what i eat, how much water I drink and overall taking care of myself falls in place with regular excercise. I manage depression but, now it’s managing me. I just feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.
This 30 minute a day system sounds good and manageable because I don’t have to leave my house until I’m ready. I work long hours at two jobs and 30 minutes seems like a reasonable comittment.
Can anyone give me a honest assessment of how this program works when you are literally starting from Ground Zero?
I don’t want to buy new (larger) clothes and I’m tired of being tired. I have a wonderful special needs granddaughter whom i adore and want to be with her as much as I can. I need to get my act together. While $55 isn’t a huge amount of money, I don’t want to be so overwhelmed with getting a plan that is too intense ….
Anyways, I hope someone can read this email and give me some realistic feedback.
thank you for your time,
My question is about whether anyone thinks this would be a good program for casual runners. I ran my first 5K in 2015 but had to abandon plans for future races because cross training of any kind wasn’t happening…and cardio only is not a good idea for me because I have a form of autoimmune arthritis that limits my range of motion somewhat. (The inflammation has been well controlled by meds).
On a side note, part of the frustration is that everywhere else I’ve tried (including Daily Burn because I feel compelled to name names) seem to have this thing about saying their trainers are certified without listing their credentials…and if I’m questioning the trainer’s competence, which is what usually happens as a direct result, that’s it, I’m done. No such problem here! (It helps that I did one of the early Walk On DVDs years ago and already knew that Jessica passed a crosscheck with flying colors.)
