    Silent Neighbor training program?

    Given that I lost a lot of weight in the past five months (close to 25 pounds) but having issues losing the remaining girth, I'm hoping to get back to working out starting January. The reason why not now? I want to make sure that my right arm is okay.

    So, I made a makeshift home gym upstairs which has four sets of dumbbells (11, 15, 20 and 25 pounds), three resistance bands (20, 40 and 60 pounds of resistance), a stationary bicycle (which needs to be cleaned due to being noisy) and two sets of some weighed bands (1 and 2 kilos).

    The biggest issue? Given that it is over the salon and that my folks tend to be book-worms, I don't want to pester them with noise.

    So, what would be some good exercises to get back in shape, ditch the remaining flab and not get in trouble because of the noise?

    YurixTheWanderer Really if your goal is to be quiet then you might want to just do bodyweight exercises. Most of the make very little noise.

    Ditching the flab is more so a diet problem as opposed to exercise. There are lots of tips in terms of diet, but basically you need to figure out what works for you, and eat a lot more of what you need as opposed to what you want (though still eat some of what you want.)

    Just another thought though, and that being that you want to avoid noise at home ... do more exercise outside of the home. I don't mean to get to the gym (unless you want to) but rather to focus on just being more active. Try out an activity that you have always wanted to, or even something you never thought of. Also watch your step count and try to meet it everyday. I have met mine for 239 days in a row (for a minimum of 6000 steps) and it helps to keep me moving, especially now in winter.

      I used to do 'Walk to Mordor', but finished it two weeks ago. As for outside exercise, what winter activities would work best?

        YurixTheWanderer I am more pragmatic when it comes to winter activities, because I don't have hundreds of dollars to spend on skis. I personally like snowshoeing and skating, but there is lots of stuff to try.

          Well, I don't have any of those. I mean, I used to have ice skates, but that was ages ago.

            YurixTheWanderer There are all kinds of options just for walking more if you don't have equipment. Check out navigation, geocaching or even psycho-geography. All of those are fun to do in winter, maybe even more so.

            Though a pair of used skates goes for $40 or so.
