New Workout Moves

The joy of signing up for all these free magazines is that sometimes you get something you can actually use. The travel mags make sense because I am studying more of the adventure travel business thing now, and the workout ones make sense because I love to workout. Cosmopolitan really didn’t make sense, but it was free so I took it. This month I found something about The Wheelbarrow Plannk. If you haven’t heard about it then look it up and try it.

I would love to give the details but this isn’t mine and being a writer myself I hate when people steal my work and give people the entire story with the ending included. With this Wheel Barrow move it’s coming up on page 100 of the November 2017 Cosmopolitan. You might be able to find this at your local library just don’t rip the page out because somebody else might want to know too.

They have it listed as flat abs, glorious glutes and strong arms. Have fun and as always…

Like it or Love it?

This week the workout is coming in hard and fast. I keep telling myself to just spend the week doing dance workouts but jogging around my room feels so good I just can’t seem to stop. A little longer here. A little longer there. Yes, I love this type of workout. I have to say there is something about dripping with sweat during the workout and seeing it glisten on my skin after I’m finished cooling down and stretching that let’s me look and say, “you did that; do it again.” I love working out.

Do any of you have a workout that you like doing? That you love doing? I hope so. It’s more fun when you love it.

Scale It Up

I talk about doing the scale up thing for workouts but sometimes I think it’s good to change it up too. Sometimes in making changes you’ll find you have to scale up on the new techniques.

What’s next on my workout list? I don’t know. I told my mom as I was reading Shape that the lady talking about how meditation doesn’t work for her yet she feels so much better emotionally after an aerobic workout that I can understand her. I still suck at meditation. I’ve tried it but I think about a gazillion other things no matter how much I try not to. Put on my Godsmack’s Faceless CD in my room and I can hit the tile running, doing a bit of HIIT some days, pushups on Stand Alone, planks going for at least a one and a half minute hold each time and I feel so great when I’m done. It’s rare that I get bored with jogging around my room but I keep telling myself maybe I should find something else too.

Have I found anything else that makes me hit the showers feeling that alive after a workout? No. Not really. I finish off hot, dripping sweat, yet somehow feeling so amazingly great. If I hit the fifty minute mark instead of the forty or thirty I did the day before I feel even better.

It’s not like I hit the workout devoid of thought or anything. I just find myself thinking about running a marathon (one I know won’t happen because if my leg gives out the bed is softer than the concrete). I took my sickest days off but I’m ready to get back to it once I can stop coughing more than I sleep.

So what keeps you motivated during a workout? What inspires you to keep going, scale it up or change it up?

Whatever you like to do have fun, stay safe and above all else…
