Skilled body weight people! I am starting body weight training to help prevent osteoporosis. I've had 2 kids. My youngest (who is now 1) had a rough pregnancy that saw me entirely give up exercise for the duration. I am so weak. I work as a nurse so day to day I'm pretty active. I'd hit 10,000 steps pretty easy but no strength at all. I tried the beginners body weight workout and could do 5 elevated pushups, 10 lunges, 10 sec plank. the rows and squats i was ok (squatting down to pick up stuff while holding a baby is pretty common lol). After that i could not keep form. So my question is do i attempt 3 rounds with smaller amounts of reps? do i try and do 1 round multiple times a day?

Either will work. You could do less reps and increase the reps as you get stronger. You could increase your rest time in between sets, and see if that helps you increase the reps. Or you could do 1 round multiple times a day.  See what works best for you time wise and fitness wise. 

 

 

Edit: Cool, I just noticed we have the same verse in our signature line:)
