1) Does anyone here use powerblocks? I am moving my home gym to my livingroom and need compact equipment. If you have these, do you like them?
2) I need a solution for a portable squat rack or ideas of how to get a good squat done if I can't lift the weight over my head. I no longer will have room for my bench with attached rack.
3) I am also considering eliminating my three days of 20 minute moderate cardio after 30 minutes weights. Instead, I am going to increase my weight time to almost 60 minutes...this will include warm up and stretching... so I can do Cathe DVDs. If I go heavy on the weights and use the other three days for my cardio...moderate(interval type between 60-75%) for 60 minutes as I seriously cannot do high intensity....and keep up my daily 60 minute walks, do you think this will harm me at all?
I really want to start focusing on building some more muscle, while keeping my heart healthy. I was happy just maintaining it but I am no longer afraid to see larger numbers on the scale as long as my clothes are still fitting well.
Any other advice?
Thanks so much for your time.
