Tuesday June 5
I have never ever seen this exercise before. Pretty interesting, huh? Bet I would get some looks at the gym doing this one.
I did try a new move at the gym today. Tracy said let's do deadlifts, so I'm thinking this is just what I need~ bending over in these too short for this type of exercise shorts and grunting up 100+ pounds of weight. Instead she grabs two 12 pound dbs and encourages me to lift one leg straight behind me and bend at the waist to do a one legged balancing "deadlift". Hm...other than my balance SUCKING, I'm not sure I'll be feeling this exercise tomorrow. She assured me I will. It was a pretty light leg day so I'll probably do DC legs on another day this week. We ended with a 30 minute trek on the snowshoe elliptical. I warned her if you get caught going too slow on this machine it will pause you out - she paused out 3 times on the big hills and I'm happy to say I paused out ZERO times. I'm sure this will never happen to her again as she is a true workout stud and will not let that thing beat her down ever again.

Onto the study. Since Helen can't access MSN during the day, it made up my mind to just open up a new blog for us all to post to. Anyone have a catchy name for it or should I just keep it simple?
