  • Well done !!! a combination of these 4 exercises and 6 others in the month of August left me 10 pounds lighter.It is indeed a must for everyone who desperately needs to lose those extra pounds . kudos. - 9/10/2016 7:29:15 PM
  • Great articles and exercises for anyone! - 6/22/2016 1:31:29 PM
  • Sorry--I couldn't get past the cover photo. The bare midriff and short shorts with her a** hanging out--Seriously?! Looks like something you'd see in Maxim, not on Spark People. I found it inappropriate.

    I'm not a runner, but might have checked out the content if that photo wasn't plastered on the pages. - 1/31/2016 11:19:37 PM
    I'm not a runner but these are great exercises to do - 9/13/2015 1:19:12 AM
  • Loved this article and the photos included. Please do more like this! - 3/24/2015 12:30:13 AM
  • I used to do some of these years ago when I was an avid runner but had stopped. Thanks for the reminder. - 9/24/2014 3:04:10 PM
  • I'm out of the running game for the next few months, but I stopped by to remind myself of the exercises I should be doing to make it easier to get back into it again. Yay, runners! - 6/18/2014 1:20:58 PM
  • Thank you for all the info. It has been very helpful - 10/27/2013 10:02:04 AM
  • I stop doing alot of these. Have to get back into them. I saved it so I can do some that I wasn't doing. - 9/29/2013 9:43:19 AM
  • Good moves to do throughout the day. Thanks - 7/23/2013 7:35:23 AM
  • I'm not a runner, but I used this article for a workout today by doing some of each one. Ooh, I can tell I haven't been consistently working out! - 7/21/2013 4:06:20 PM
  • Oh, I also wanted to say that your cardio doesn't have to come from 'running', you can use these exercises to strengthen your stamina for WALKING too, which everyone can do!
    I started walking my dog last year, and she was a younger pup, so before I knew it, I was running with her and though I've 'hated' running for 35 years, I love it now! a brisk walk is still a really good workout! - 3/6/2013 5:58:24 PM
  • Thank you for letting us know how to save articles! I never even looked at that tool on the far left side of the screen! - 3/6/2013 5:55:57 PM
  • Hey don't forget to do chest and shoulders! Keeping good posture is a must, especially when running. Every step during a run pulls down on your upper body. - 12/9/2012 9:44:42 PM
