This weekend I was REALLY sore in my sides & back in the waist area. That doesn't happen very often, & for a while it perplexed me . . . made it so hard to bend over that I felt old!
But it meant I had to always bend at the hips instead of the waist, & that's much better anyway.
On Sunday I finally realized the reason: doing the Leslie S. videos, I had been turning my torso very energetically with all the marching & kicking steps. My sore waist proves that those muscles really do engage when I make that twist!
Now that I know, I am continuing to twist but a little more gently, so that I can build up my strength instead of punishing myself.
Love handles begone!
