So for a long while now I have used 3 pound weights to build muscle and add some resistance. Well that is no longer working. I am maintaining my little muscles that I gained, but not really building anymore. I got tired of this. Kind of another reason why I am not moving any where on the scale. I got this crazy idea and I am going to share it with you.
I am a broke hoe. LOL. I am actually a broke wife, but that's okay. Not so broke that I cannot afford the bills and what not that we have, but broke enough that I don't get to go out and buy some new dumbbells . Instead I am saving for them. Its going to be a while, but I can manage. This idea will hold me off for a while.
Now my idea came to me one night while I was watching the hubby finish up the laundry. He had just finished the laundry detergent. He rinsed out the rest of the soap and was getting ready to toss it when light bulb!!! I figured out how to gain some muscle and a cheap and free way to do it. Now my weights are only 3 pounds, but I wanted something that would fatigue my muscles to the point for awesomeness. Gain some muscles to burn some calories. I have a weight measure so I added filled it up with some water and gave it a try last night.
Well it works. My arms are burning, however like any muscles you have to take it slow and control the weight. I think that I may have but too much water into it. So incase you would like to use this idea I suggest you try measuring out in cups of water or unless you have a scale give that a shot and work out way into it. Another nice thing when you are working out with weight laundry bottles is that they are full of water and make you engage your core some what more.
oh and another little sweet thing about laundry detergent bottles they come in various sizes so you don't have to start off with a huge one if you don't want to.
I'm an awesome silly little master mind. Good luck every one.
I love the mastermind behind this thought process- great idea! Probably a lot easier than trying to find and do curls with the cat :) Resistance can be found in many forms and we don't need to be rich to engage our muscles and minds. 1658 days ago
