Secrets of Success

Grocery Weight Lifting



When I go grocery shopping I usually don't buy a whole cart load, but have them packed into two heavy reuseable shopping bags. That way on my way to the car, which is way over to the end of the parking lot, I "curl" the bags halfway up so my elbow is at a 90 degree angle and I hold that curl until I get to the car. I enjoy that nice little extra bout of strength training! :-)

  • I do the same with my grocery bags while walking home from the grocery store. :) Thanks for sharing! - by ALLGRACEY
  • I usually just carry a basket around the store with me to ensure that I don't buy more than I can carry. (old habit from my miserly student days) It means I also can walk around lifting while shopping as well as outside on the way to the car! LOL
