That's such an inspiring story to read. There aren't any exercises for your quads that I know of that don't involve the knees but rdls and good mornings are somewhat straight legged for the hamstrings. Calf raises are another that can be configured without much knee movement. Then there's the hip muscles and the Suzanne somers movements that help exercise that area as well.

Sounds like you're off to a great start but just remember that its a lifestyle change and not a program. There is no end to it and the results will be well worth the work. The domino effect was what kept me going. The more you work out the more energy you have to work out. Sounds stupid but it gets easier once it becomes habit. Slow and steady lowers the number of pallbearers you'll have when you die. I realized I didn't have that many friends.

The bike doesn't hurt my knee as long as I get it situated before getting on. I figured the bike was good exercise for legs and cardio but I am lacking on lower back I think.

Yesterday's workout was exhausting. We had been slowly going up in weight but there was no going easy on me yesterday. And the plan is the same for Wednesday. I am working out with 75lb dumbells on press which in and of itself isn't bad but the lack of rest between exercises and the amount is really working. Trainer says that next week we will be working mostly with barbells and go down on weight and add reps. Can't wait

Having a trainer sounds nice, someone to motivate you and help you get it right....if she looked nice in shorts and a sports bra that'd be a plus.

Up on weight again this evening. I felt good going in tonight and knocked out what ever the trainer threw at me. The first day I was using 35 lb dumbells on press. Today I am on 80. Pushing 115 on military press. My upper body is feeling more solid. Just need to keep working to get rid of the belly and tire.

Training program has changed. Now doing lighter weight but 15 reps per set. This seems like I am working harder. It is funny because I throw the weight up with no problem but the eleventh one is a *****. Like my body has just gotten used to the number 10. Doing mostly the same exercises. Using a bar for press instead of dumbells, adding a Arnold shoulder press and adding another bicep exercise. Granted I had a week off from working out because of my travels and general life getting in the way but I am sore after raising the reps.

Yep, confusing your body. That's good that its kicking your ***. That's how you know it's working. Are your rest intervals the same?

Yeah. Roughly 30 sec between reps. Little longer between exercises.

I meant 30 sec between sets. Not reps. That would take a while
But I bet you knew what I meant

Same workout tonight with more bike riding.

Feeling much better now

I did ask the trainer how long he is waiting between sets. I never timed it, I just assumed because I was there. But he said it depends on how much I struggled. If I struggle it is 30 secs. If I blow through something he will only give me 10-15. Said he is just trying to keep heart rate up since we aren't doing ton of cardio. Just bike riding.
