Thanks Alta! It looks excellent (though with all the explanations it's longer than I like). How do you think the content compares to Susie Hathaway's Safe Strength Training dvd?

I don't have the book anymore, so I don't remember. The info in the book is from 2006, so I'd look for something more up to date. Margaret Martin's Melioguide tends to keep up with the latest exercise and nutrition info for bone health:

The slow speed is better for safety and for muscle/bone building. Most heavy strength training workouts have longer rests in between sets, likes the third mesocycle of Cathe's STS.

While I like Susie's workouts, I tend to not reach for them often. I like the University Place one enough that I'd do it regularly.

She does give good form pointers.

Did this workout today. Took me 54 minutes, without a stretch but with a 5 min warm up. I did it on my own from a list I made while watching the video. I liked it. My legs were wobbly afterwards. But not sure if I want that long of a workout. I'm thinking I could super set some of it with diff't body parts and cut down the rests. I've been doing Joyce Vedral workouts lately so it's quite different going so slow (she's a speed demon-haha).
