I'm satisfied with my progress in my cardio and in my strength training, but I'm not making any gains any more. My exercise bike is not my favorite piece of equipment, but that's what my husband bought, so that's what I use. I've been going to aerobics class three times a week, but her patterns are too complicated for me to get enough intensity out of the workout. So I'm looking forward to switching to the treadmill at the gym, and maybe trying out the rowing machine. My muscle workouts, I've been doing at home with dumbbells. I'm using 3 1/2 kg dumbbells, and I'm just not feeling the fatigue, even after three sets of 12 reps. So it's time to graduate with this as well. But to what? I'm comfortable with the basic routine that I'm following now, which is a full body workout with 10 different exercises. Perhaps I'm best just to continue with this workout using the gym's heavier dumbbells. :db: I've taken a look at some of the equipment at the gym, and it's really hard for me to make heads or tails of it. I can't remember what it has, but it's a very small gym, so just the bare minimum - two multi-purpose machines with a couple of different benches and some free weights. It's a private gym, in which I'd most probably be using the equipment all by myself, but people could quite possibly pop in now and then. So I need suggestions on what kinds of things are safe to do alone. Ha, I'm much more comfortable at home, where I can sweat in peace, and not worry about other people barging in on me. Suggestions, please.
