Strength Training

2 posts in this topic

I just happened to come across Candace's blog one day while looking for a yoga program and I fell in love with her non-judgmental way of excersie and the fact that she doesn't force you to sit through long periods of meditation. I can't stand to meditate, I'm a busy person and I don't have time to just sit for long stretches and do nothing. (I'm a mother of 2, a subsititue teacher, and a full time student so my time and energy is very limited.)

I need to start doing some strength training to incorporate into my workout routine. I also run anywhere from 2-4 days a week and then yoga1-3 times a week (if I'm lucky I might get 4 workouts in or maybe have to skip a week all together.) Running is my main workout but I want to build upper body and core strength so that I can preform headstands and then handstands. 

What I'm looking for is a female (preferably) with an attitude similar to Candace's. I want to work with dumbbells and resistance bands at home. I am not a gym person (again, limited time) so I would like videos online. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Have you heard of p90x? I wouldn't recommend all of it for what you;re looking for but there are a couple of workouts that would suit you nicely. They are short also and you can change them up a lot.
