Thanks for the answer Happy. It gives me inspiration. There used to be lots of new programs and I would buy them all lol. New rules of lifting, Get Glutes, Girls gone Strong Bikini Body, Venus Index, Lift like a Girl etc.etc....I have them all and I mix them up.
Happy, you may want to check out Coach Karen Smith and Kellie Davis. Different training styles, but it might give you some workouts to try. Kellie David posts one new workout a week or more. Both trainers post individual moves to try weekly, sometimes daily. I love them both. Very balanced about everything: mindset, sets & reps, mobility and flexibility, strength, bodyweight glute work but still using weights for deadlifts, landmines, etc. I don't lift like I used to (former Venus Index girl, I did Phase 1 4-6 times haha!) but still borrow form their workouts.
Karen Smith has daily workouts she posts, $20 month membership. It wasn't my thing at the time. BUT what I did love is she encouraged me to do ME, and do what I wanted from the workouts. She wasn't dogmatic even with her own stuff. (Obviously, if you have specific goals that would be different.) Kellie is a good acquaintance of mine and she is just a doll inside and out. Love them both!!
This discussion has been very interesting. I'm glad I stopped by again. My focus was that i'm loving playing tennis. I just began taking lessons 2-1/2 years ago. I'm 71. I don't want to hurt myself, my legs/knees. I want to strengthen for tennis, and therefore strengthen in general. I think that's good motivation, having tennis as a pull, given that I'm not attracted to weight training. I'm still undecided where to begin, but don't think it will be ZGYM since I'm already doing plenty of cardio, tennis at least 4 days a week and zumba 1-2 times, and casual walking and casual bike riding.
I don't know why I thought there was a workout that tennis players might use, but I haven't yet found it; I've asked some of my instructors. Especially for my knees, which don't hurt, but feel vulnerable to the impact of tennis.

Etana, I saw that Skwigg recommended The Bunny Slope Series from Zgym to you and I have to second that recommnedation. It's not bouncy. It's just good old weight training, full body in focus and can be modified by using heavier weights if you wanted/needed a greater challenge. Just something to consider as it's a completely free program totally laid out for you.
I hope the link works let me know. I think it is a very good program that starts slowly with modifications and all. I remember I had told my mom to purchase it and I had read it all a couple years ago and she was able to do it with minimal equipement. my mom is 70 y.o. Hope it helps.
