Well I know in my case for iron yoga you are only supposed to use a 1, 2, or 3lb weights, because of the length of time you hold each postion, and I know I can only handle the 1's for that routine, I lift regularly, and I am a marathon runner, I think its fair to say I am rather fit, I also know my hubby who lifts heavy weights regularly and is also a marathon runner, can only handle the 2's during that routine, and he does it at least 3 times a week, so I would say that many people have a need, and are by no means underestimating their own potential. I also dont think that anything that gets someone up off their couch is silly, and I would never laugh at anyone, who is willing to try.

The miracle wasnt in having finished 26.2 miles, it was: taking the first step!
