Overall strength, but I feel I am particularly weak in my arms.. I also like working them out the least what a coincidence!QUESTION: Do you wish to increase your ARM strength or your OVERALL strength?
Sounds like a plan to me! <scribbles notes.>(1) Pull-ups (lats, shoulders)
(2) Chin-ups (Biceps, lats)
(3) Walking lunges (quads, hamstrings, glutes)
(4) Dips (Between two chairs, or other stable and stationary furniture)
(5) Pliometric jump squats (Jump up onto a bench, step down, left, right, repeat until legz are dead. )
(6) Calf raises (Find a staircase, hold onto the rail, using one leg at a time raise yourself up and down while only your toes are on the edge od the step, 25 reps each leg, and the n50 with both feet together.)
I do a workout DVD that requires them. Some of them are hard "Like where I spend a minute and a half doing shoulder raises - i dunno what they're called.. but. You have the dumbells in hand, and pull your arms straight up with your arms srtaight infront of you, and lower them again - with side lunges)OK, regarding the dumbbells. Could you please tell me what your current use of them is?
This sounds like something off of Rocky. I think I have an old backpack...(1) Backpack/Rucksack:
I run a family business where we ship things Boxes are not a problem to obtain. This is an awesome idea.. at the delivery girl section!!(2) Boxes of Books!
I have a spare tire for my car.. and a giant monster-truck tire in storage. I guess I'll just need something a bit more my-size!FUN WITH TIRES:
This totally makes me excited for summer. I think I shall spend some time collecting these things and break up this into routines come spring/warmer weather Thank you! I'll totally let you know how it goes for me
I find one thing that helps a lot is finding out WHY I'm avoiding it. If I realize I'm avoiding it because it's daunting, for example, then I split it up into sections. "Just clean this small corner, and then tomorrow I'll do another small corner.." Or if I'm avoiding it because I can't STAND the kind of work it is, I'll blitz through it to get it over with, or pick the hardest part and just do that first. Finding out why I'm avoiding it usually helps me get through it.
