It’s still so rainy outside. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it clears up!
I get nervous about biking in rain or through puddles! The last thing I need is a crash – whether it’s in the car or on the bike.
Lunch was leftovers:
I cooked 1/2 cup (measured dry) bulgur and doused it in low-sodium soy sauce. On the side, I had baked tofu, carrots, and parsnips (from Friday… Twitter friends assured me that 3-day old veggies were safe).
The Lunge and Lift
I wanted to share with you my favorite move from the Intro to Iron Pumping Challenge so far… the Lunge and Lift from Gina.
I did 3 sets of 12 reps (for each side) yesterday, and my butt BURNS today! To do the intro level move, you simply drop into a lunge:
And then you straighten up, lifting your back leg as you go. Squeeze your butt!
(Excuse my personal messiness and pajamas… I work from home.)
Gina has a cute video with tons of modifications of this move, including ways you can make it harder. Why you would want to do that, I have no idea.
What’s your favorite strength training move?
My favourite strength training move is either walking lunges or squats & deadlifts with a barbell.
