Please Start Out Lightly

Good morning everyone! Hope you're doing well wherever you are today. I spent the morning at the gym doing some basic calisthenics. 

I was planning on running but it ended up raining. 

I'm pinching myself (gently, but repeatedly) for not telling you this earlier. Weight training can be good, but please start lightly. Begin with something you know you can easily do. You only have one body! Also, you do not have to go to the gym to exercise. You can get healthy, fit, and strong at home, with just your body and gravity. Of course, if you want to use lots of weights, the gym is there for you. Either way, there's nothing wrong with starting out with very limited, basic movements. Make it simple and convenient for yourself to do your planned routine sustainably. A suggestion for beginners is to design a routine for the lazy version of you because that's the version that's going to use it. And feel free to join the Y if that's your jam!

Thanks for stopping by.
