I have always enjoyed weightlifting but have encountered a few problems over the years — The New Rules of Lifting for Women got repetitive for me, Faster Way to Fat Loss was great but too expensive for what it was, Les Mills on Demand‘s Body Pump (and similar classes) at this point are too advanced for me, and I get bored by other fitness videos on weightlifting such as ChaLEAN or Fitness Blender.
I’ve gotten a few other weightlifting books over the years (The Year One Challenge for Women, Strong Curves) and ran into problems with a) having to look up half the exercises or b) not having enough equipment. Plus, I often got stuck watching YouTubers spend three minutes telling me how to do a single exercise.
I forget how I found Fitbod, but I’m LOVING it — it’s an app that gives you weightlifting workouts and shows you simple animated gifs of the exercises (LOVE that). You can tell the app which equipment you have access to so that it only gives you exercises with that equipment — and if you don’t like a certain one (die, burpees!), you can easily replace it with another exercise that works the same muscles. You can even choose whether to do “fresh muscle groups” each day, do a full body workout, or do an upper/lower split training.
The app gives you three workouts for free, but after that it’s $5 a month — and to me it’s really worth it. It’s a very smart program! Fitbod
