I suppose I'm not the only one to get impatient on the rest days.
So, I've been thinking, while waiting for W5R2 - it would be nice to have a strength building program nudging just as gently as C25k does. Ideally, there would be:
1. Short workouts. I mean, 40 minutes of C25k are OK, but that's an outdoor activity. Indoors, I would be bored long before.
2. Limited number of exercises for a day - I get scared by a workout plan consisting of more than 5 lines, no matter how little time it's supposed to take.
3. No pain, no pushing myself to the limit, no orthorexic-fatphobic propaganda. By no means am I trying to lose weight with this training, nor am I going to take any exercise-related food choices. It should be just some rewarding endorphins-releasing activity I would actually look forward to, as it happens with my jogging sessions now.
The problem is, while C25k leads you very smoothly from a workout virtually everyone can complete (and if not, there are the obvious way of preparation starting with 10-seconds jogs and gradually increasing its duration) to an achievement most people would be proud of, I don't see anything like this in the strength training world. I mean, how does one make it from the couch to performing just one decent push-up or pull-up without losing confidence and giving up?
Is it just very lazy me or does anyone else feel this way?
