I started my crosstrainer program yesterday.  20 minutes, then 25 minutes today, both on level 4-5.  
It's hard to keep my heart rate from going too high during exercise, so I need to take it easy at first.  Slowly I hope to get up to 45 minutes, 5 times per week.

Soooooo, nobody's checking in yet :-) No problem, I will keep doing it myself otherwise I'm sure I won't keep up my training plan!

Today I woke up early and did a few basic exercises on my sling trainer, some push-ups, some squats, and some wide-grip chin-ups.  I will try to do resistance training monday, wednesday, friday, and cross-trainer every other day.

hi Victor, I am both :-) I'm one of the original founders of the site, from back in 2000, and now I'm using it to try and motivate myself (and others) to get back into shape.  I think many of our original members have let their fitness level slip in the past 10-15 years, so I'm hoping this group will help everyone get back on track.

Daily check-in:
30 minutes on the crosstrainer, level 6.  It seemed that my heart rate was a bit lower if I set the crosstrainer on the same level as I did on Saturday.

I started logging my heart rate with a polar H7 sender and a great Android app that I found, Pulsometer RR.
