If you don't know where to start, it is a great place to start. Even if you aren't overweight, it has some really good tips and Stumptuous.com definitely deserves to be read by anyone interested in fitness.
That was a great article!
I've often thought about the same things. Every time I tried so hard to keep up with yet another pilates dvd I had bought. I realized that I was having to work so much harder than this woman on the tv whose only body fat was on her tiny breasts!!!
When I realized that most of these people CANNOT
do these exercises if you say PILE 8 10LB BAGS OF POTATO'S ONTO THEM!!!!!
I realized I would have to customize, customize, and customize!
Due to my osteoarthritis and 70lbs to lose I designed an exercise regimen that doesn't cause me injury. If you're interested I have posted them here on a blog.http://osteoarthritisexercises.blogs...ning-buns.html
The part that made me laugh out loud was when I read "overweight people shouldn’t weight train because it will build muscle that will push the fat out more"
