Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Mixing up exercise for a fatty/beginner-now looking to start weight training
I'm finally getting more serious about trying to loose weight and be healthy. I have successfully cut off sodas from my diet and no longer go out and get fast food every day, so that's a step in the right directly.
I also been exercising in the mornings. Due to some weird stuff, I actually have both a treadmill and elliptical at home, which I'm sorta ashamed to say had been gathering dust for a while. I started off with the treadmill, but lat week I realized that I'm sort of cheating myself and not really working hard. I'll do half an hour every day, but it's at a pretty relaxed pace. So now I'm trying the whole couch to 5k thing, and already it kicks my ass more than the elliptical ever did.
When reading about the couch-5k program, they advised that I do it three times a weeks to start, and this is where I have a question- what should I be doing on the other two/three days(I plan to take Saturday off)? Are there any good exercises that you guys recommend that I do at home?
