how do you train?
do you use a series of stretches and movements to work out?
or do you use machines and weights?
Is it primarily strength, flexibility, cardio or a combination?
Do you structure your training?
Do you have a set list that you go through to warm up and improve?
Would structure help you?
Are you disciplined enough to structure your training yourself?
Are you proud of your routine and stick religiously to it?
ok enough of the questions.
The reason is, I have a warming up and training structure at the gym, but I would like to have one at home too. And I know I would benefit from a regular documented ‘guide’ that I can follow each time, whether thats list form, graphical, movie or audio.
There’s a site called Gyminee which tries to address this, and I’ve been wandering about the place for a bit trying to make sense of it and seeing what it has to offer me (if anything). First impressions are, it doesn’t. Its primarily focussed on people that train in gyms using weights and machines… or people that run etc. I do neither. However I haven’t yet used much of its other features, because I don’t know my body weight. But it has the ability to monitor, track your progress and suggest other routines with other users about training.
If you’re serious about training… and train seriously. then it might be worth a look. I have 5 invites if anyone wants one… as the site is currently in a beta stage atm. If you try it out and don’t find it useful. It would be a good idea to leave them feedback about what it isn’t supplying for you, because then they can consider adding those features. Atm I think they’re missing out on a whole audience of Gymnasts and Martial Artists.. who both have strict training routines, yet don’t necessarily use weights or machines to do so.
