I love the website, and the easy to use workout routines.
I tried the level 1 day 1 workout today. it went okay. I had to do substitute for the pull-ups, because I'm overweight and out of shape. And the squats kind of bothered my knees, not while I was working out but afterwards.
I've recently changed my diet from the milkshake/french fry regimen to something more closely resembling the paleo diet people around here seem to like, with good results, I'm down 6 pounds in 3 weeks, still have about 20 pounds to go.
My assumption is that the subs I'm doing for the pull ups, combined with me losing weight, is going to allow me to get to a point where I can do pull ups.
But with the squats, I'm not sure. I have been diagnosed with arthritis in my knees, and have avoided doing squatting exercises for a long time, but it is very apparent how beneficial those exercises are, and I don't want to use arthritis as an excuse not to work.
sorry, talking too much. Here are my questions:
Does anyone here do the workouts who suffers from arthritis? any words of wisdom?
Is there a sub for squats?
