Lift my body wieght for strength? :)

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

One of the challenges on the Wildflowerr team was to use your body weight for strength exercise. emoticon But what was I going to do.
I started with a couple of planks, then emoticon
Side plank on each side.
Squats (that's really a weight lifting exercise for me)
Bicycle crunchs emoticon
One hand row
Chair Leg lifts
Tricept Dips while I am there.
Calf raises and
Wall push ups to finish a 15 minute circuit routine.
Will see how sore that I am tomorrow before determining continued "weight lifting". emoticon

    That is the best weights and to help with the soreness they say that you can drink hot cocoa or even soak in epsom salt to help with the soreness. Give it a try.

    That's right, Penney! You don't need any fancy or expensive equipment to strength train! All those exercises you outlined WORK! Keep it up! emoticon emoticon
