Hi does anyone take a good pre workout and fat burner they can recommend?
What's your workout tracker? I use Hevy and Garmin Vivosmart 5 watch.
What app do you use to track your workouts? I've been hopping around and Hevy has honestly been a godsend to track workouts, from personalized stats, charts, personal bests, social feeds with other users, and customizable routine. This is not an ad lol, just wanted to share if anyone is looking for workout apps. And if…
hello, I'm new
I am 72 young female and do Tai Chi regularly four times a week. I went to my local YMCA yesterday to learn how to use the "machines" to build muscle. I am active and garden as well as work with my therapy dogs(Milo & Ru) on a regular basis. I can't say that working on the machines was my most favorite-tist activity but I…
Strength Training at Home
Hi I am looking for help with exercises that don't rely on weights to strengthen and tone the body especially upper body and core. I am currently trying to loose weight for a healthier life and strength training is very unfamiliar to me. My rational is that I should be strong enough to lift my own body weight before…

Anyone else using Dumbbells only?
Hi, New to the group here, but not new to MFP. I've been here for six years now! Initially lost over 40 lbs, but I've gained back 20. I'm still relatively small at 5'3" and 134 lbs. I am at a healthy bmi. But I am more comfortable around 120-125. Initially I lost the "right" way--slowly and not doing anything crazy, but…

New to Strength Training
So, I'm totally new to this. I have lost over 100 lbs in the last year doing cardio. In the past year I didn't do any weights (shame on me!) Now I can't even lift half of what I could before. Going from 299 to 190 I lost a lot of muscle. So I'm looking to start back. Losing so much weight I need to focus on my "batwings"…
What does it mean if you just don't feel stronger?
I've been at bodyweight training for about 2 years and I always reach a point in a routine where I think that I'm just lacking in the basics when it comes to strength. So I step down to the most basic exercise variations and I just stay there because I don't feel like they get any easier. Anyone else in a similar situation?
Hey guys, I just started the stronglifts 5x5 program and I have a question. Right now the app has me doing a single deadlift, but the weight is WAY too low. Is there any downside to doing the 5 sets of five on dls until I figure out my one rep max?
