  1. Hi Shelley! I’ve been watching/ applying your channel for the past month and WOW. Every day I wake up and obsess over the tiny positive changes in my body instead of wishing my body would be different. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU! I watched this video earlier and didn’t comment. Just now put on a pair of jeans I’ve been avoiding and felt compelled to say thank you because they FIT and I have a tiny bump in the rear that I love! And I ate ice cream last night and didn’t feel guilty! Such tiny changes but really it’s made such an impact on my happiness that I didn’t realize was possible. No restricting diets or manic gym days, just consistency and listening to my body. I’m legit about to cry right now I’m so grateful. ❤️

  2. I just purchased this Body Solid G6B cable machine, If you would upload some videos using cable machines, I'd be grateful. I have free weights as well. I am deeeeeefinitely going back to review any of your previous videos.

  3. Shelley I am sooooooo grateful for this video. I recognize the passion that you have for the beginners. This has made me feel more confident about working out on my own in my home gym that I am constructing. I have been paying for a personal trainer for over a year. Be that as it may, will you please answer this question…Do I not work on upper body while I am doing these exercises for the 8 to 12 weeks? I plan to follow the guide/suggestions made in this video for the next 12 weeks.

  4. Thank you so much, this video is exactly what I needed! Your explanations are clear and I love your humour too. You just got a new follower^^

  5. is this going to be effective for fat loss? I wanna mix cardio and weight training for faster results. I lost 35 pounds from doing cardio in 4 months and feel like that's so slow so I wanna step it up. I still have 70 pounds to lose. I was 230 when I started, I'm currently 195 pounds. Female, 19, 5'6

  6. I’m really nervous to go but this video is so helpful! I want to be and look stronger and this has motivated me to actually go to the gym, but this time I’m going to make a plan. Thank you!

  7. Wow this made me feel so much more comfortable about going into the gym. You seem very real and this was the little push I needed to actually make a workout plan. I've been watching youtube videos all day and this was the first one that broke everything down and made me excited to head into the gym tomorrow.

  8. Thank you so much for all the helpful information. Im just starting out my journey in weight lifting and this video has eased so many of my worries. I am excited to get in the gym! Thank you!

  9. I'm new here and love your content so far! This is super helpful. I don't even know what shoe to begin with. Do I get trainers/something flat – can I use those if I hop on the treadmill or do people bring two pairs and switch out? Thanks!

  10. This might be silly… but I’ve been working out for a while now and I’m actually just now getting into weight lifting but I’m just so overwhelmed/intimidated when it comes to actual dead weight exercises and have no clue where to start or the technique let alone when to go from doing basic beginner level exercises to grabbing the dead weights and being confident in what to do

  11. Great and super helpful! Please give a tutorial vid on deadlift form for beginners, especially the Romanian deadlift for beginners that you reference in this video! Thank you!! 🙏

  12. I have one question, when you talk about doing 2 upper and 2 lower body workouts a week, is that 2 of the same workout or 2 different lower body workouts in one week? and then obviously repeat each week as the same, everything else was so well explained and such a godsend, I want to get into weightlifting but had no clue where to start, thank you!

  13. What do you think about bigger weights and less reps (up to 5) vs lighter weight and more reps? Which is better for metabolism?
