Try doing them as static lunges (split squats) making sure your toro stays erect and vertical as you drop you buttocks down between your spread posture.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs

lunges - I can't balance so I do them assisted with a chair. Also, would never even attempt burpees .

Ditto. Burpees. I absolutely without a doubt, LOATHE burpees. I'll do them, but I definitely don't like them.

PS - Angel, I did the Spartan Sprint last November. And yes, the Spartans are absolutely obsessed with their burpees. Just as a heads up, they start you with a set of burpees to warm up and they have another set towards the end just when you think you don't have to do another set. It wasn't pretty, but this old hag made it across the finish line.

Have fun !

Burpees. They are so tough! But I'm training for a 5K obstacle course race later this year, and you have to do 30 burpees for any obstacle you miss, so I've got to get my numbers up.

They're fantastic, though, for overall conditioning of all your major muscle groups, so it's not a waste of time to get good at them!

Squats and lunges, for sure. Hate them, but as the PP said, so effective you kind of have to do 'em.

Ugh, I second lunges... there is no other exercise I hate more but they're so darn effective I have to include them. I just find them a bit of balancing act and I have terrible balance.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I hate doing any form of machine cardio, can tolerate outdoor running but prefer cycling for my limited cardio. I get my cardio by doing strength only circuit training which gives me to biggest bang for my buck and is the best utilization of my training time.

I dislike the overhead press with the dumbbell and the airplane/ exercise with the body laying prone and lifting the arms and legs in a reciprocal fashion.

I love my cardio but not as happy with my ST.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
