WORKOUT MOVE OF THE DAY!

Monday, August 04, 2008


Unilateral Deadlift with Arm Row

Works core, back, glutes, and hamstrings


POSITION:
Grab a pair of 8-10lb dumbbells and stand with your arms at your sides.
THE MOVE:
Place your right toe on the floor about 2 feet behind you and bend forward from the hips. Keeping your right leg straight, raise it off the floor until body forms a T and your arms hang straight down from your shoulders. Row the dumbbells toward your ribs until your elbows pass your torso. Lower the dumbbells and return to start. That's one rep. Do 12-15 reps, then repeat on the other side. That's one set. Do two, resting for 30 seconds between sets.

    That sounds good! I just may make this tomorrow, I just bought chicken tonight, and I have some zuchinni a friend gave me from her garden.

I have my treatment tomorrow and won't feel like cooking, but I can get my packet all ready to go so I can just stick it in the oven when I get home. Thanks for the great idea!
