Diane also practices yoga, and has noticed greater strength during yoga since starting the resistance-training program Gina designed for her. Diane follows a 2-4x/week full-body resistance-training program that she performs right in her living room. She started with just a set of dumbbells and a floor mat, but has since purchased a fitness ball, ankle weights, and a flat bench so she can perform a greater variety of exercises. Besides the increased strength, Diane has also noticed that her breath is stronger and her muscle tone has improved. She’s lost some weight, too: 10 pounds of bodyfat over 5 months’ time.
Unfortunately Diane has an old lower back/pelvis injury that has flared up, so she is going to a chiropractor and a masseuse and sticking with stretching only for the time being. She hopes to be back to regular walking and weight-training soon, though. Diane’s primary goals are to continue to increase her bone mass without having to rely on drugs, and also to continue to develop strong, tight muscles. Our congratulations to Diane for being Home Bodies client of the month this past month!
