    ...and how many times a week do you do it? Also, what are your problem areas and what are you doing to sort them out?

    I work out 4 times a week:
    mon - gym
    wed - legs, bums and tums
    thurs - zumba
    sat - spinning or gym

    I've signed up to do race for life now so need to start training for that and also want to start swimming so might start going in the mornings.

    I have serious issues with my arms and thighs at the moment and also my stomach so trying to do as much cardio as possible to burn the fat!

    running will tone up your tum too. the RFL should be easy. i'm going to do 2 this year. one for running and one with my 4 yr old daughter walking. i've got a 10k and a half marathon to run. would love to do a marathon but i just don't have the training time to do it with 2 kidp.

    p.s also mean to say that squats will improve your glutes and give you more power whilst protecting your knees.

    You should use the squat machine in the gym. I was told that you should be able to squat your own body weight :) give it a go. I managed 3 lol.
