Hey everyone!

I have always wanted to go the extra mile with my diet, so I tried to support it with exercise. I used to mostly do those 8-minute exercises on YouTube, doing 4 of them would make it half-an-hour a day. Thing is, they would really quickly become repetitive (3 months of the same thing, ugh), and since I really have to push myself to exercise, as soon as it gets boring I just seem to gradually cease doing it.

I wanted to make my own little exercise program, but realised I have no idea how to do this. So here's where I ask your advice:
- How long should the training take everyday?
- How long should the breaks between exercises be?
- How many different exercises should I do daily for each area (arms, legs, abs, behind)?
And finally, can you recommend a site where I could find effective exercises, preferably with examples on how to do it correctly? Or maybe you have found an exercise on your own that works like a charm? Please share.

Tools-wise, I have a weighted 3.3 lbs hula-hoop and two 1-kilo hand weights.

Thank you for any guidance.

Hey everyone...I used to go to the gym but no one looks like me there and then they stare at you when you get tired easily Sad so I decided to start working out at home. Not an easy task but I try to get in at least 4 workouts a day. I find that doing challenges helps me. On pinterest I found 3 day challenges (arms, legs and abs) each are about 15 min but they are all low impact and you use your body strength. Then I do 20 min of Zumba (I'm latina so we love to dance lol) or Jilliam Michaels also has a 30 day challenge on netflix and the workouts change every 10 days. I am not a workout junkie at all but I find that these work best for me. Good luck and let me know how it goes Smile
