    Hey guys, i just joined today. I have recently found myself unhappy with my body type. I started running and lifting weights(alternating days). It gets cold where i live in the winter so, i fell back off the train. I found so arm and leg gain from that. Just this week i started indoor cardio and weight lifting(still alternating days). A family member sent me a link to darebee and i thought "Foundation" would be a good start. I did day 1 today and was curious if i followed proper format. There are 4 exercises at 10 reps a piece. I started at 1 and transitioned directly to 2, 3, 4(for reps each before transitioning)

    welcome

    you've chosen the right program to start. you're doing it correctly. do exercise #1 10 reps, then #2, #3 and #4. this is a set. then rest, and repeat the sequence too many times as you can (or want). the nmber of sets defines the level that you've done it.

        Cool. I kinda figure that was it. I got between 5 and 7 reps. I'll keep better track for todays workout. I have some excess body weight from eating too much but, I'm average or slightly above for overall fitness. I'm a construction laborer and my work can be pretty demand. Specifically in the summer when it's 90-110 degrees outside.

          CRutter447 , welcome.

          Keep in mind that left + right = 2 reps.

                Thanks for all the support. Also, kinda stupid question. A 6 count squat hold is holding a squat for six seconds?

                  Just count.

                  the slower you count it, the hard and challenging it will be.

                    For some exercises, I think I've never counted so fast in my life.
