Get Strong With the Strength Training Deck

Figuring out how to work strength training into your workout routine, or even your life, can be a challenge. In yesterday's poll on weight lifting , a few of you commented that you find the weight rooms at your gyms intimidating. I found this Strength Training Deck ($12.95) to act as your cheat sheet and jump start your strength training program. If you are new to strength training, these 52 exercises, one per card, can help you learn the ins and outs of many muscle building moves in the privacy of your home. You can read up on the moves, which are explained in a straightforward manner, and try them at the gym. Since it is strength training, props are involved: medicine balls, physio balls, hand weights, and exercise bands. If you have none of these and are working out at home, you can always substitute canned goods for hand weights and heavy pillows for medicine balls.

To create a diversified workout, you can mix and match body parts and just work your legs, or find cards for different areas to get a full workout. I also dig the Pilates Deck and Fit Deck, followed up by a nice massage using the Massage Deck. Yep, pick a card any card, and that card will get you moving!

I love weight training, much more than cardio but I wanted to say, nice stomach in that photo. Trim, firm, but not board-flat. It's a healthy stomach.
