Lifting Like a Girl #5

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Okay, so if you were drooling over my 60 pound lifts in my previous lifting blog, I stand corrected. I was only lifting 15 pounds per dumbbell. I will get to 60 soon though. I increased the weight from 30 to 40 tonight. Oh yeah!!

Question for anyone following the New Rules of Lifting for Women: Do you have a better substitute exercise for the Prone Jackknife? I don't have a ball and don't want to buy one. I've been doing a standing leg raise using a band, but I don't feel like I'm getting enough resistance. I'm afraid to choke up any more on the band.
