Tuesday workout

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Paula suggested that for everyone wanting/needing some motivation that we post a daily excercise. Rather it be something that we incorporate into our already planned workout of if it's the only thing you do for that day.


So to start things off, today is crunches.... Pick which ever you want to do.. OR for those "really" wanting a boost, try two or three of them.. :-)



A simple 'pelvic tilt' performed while sitting in a chair can strengthen your ab muscles and support the back.


Crunch - Lying on your back and knees bent; lift your shoulders off the floor. The emphasis is on moving the ribs towards the hips.


Reverse Curl - Lying on your back, bend your knees towards the chest. Keep the hips on the floor. Contract your abdominal muscles at the same time. Your lower abdominal exercise program must include reverse curls.


Leg raise - Single leg raise involves raising one leg from the floor. The double leg raise involves raising both legs from the floor at the same time and this works as an abdominal muscle exercise. Lying leg raises are ideal lower abdominal exercise


Ab exercise with the ball - The stability ball is an effective training device for the abs and lower back. Due to the curve of the exercise ball, the lower abdominal muscles get trained better on account of the greater range of motion.


Bicycle- It was ranked the best abdominal exercise by the American Council on Exercise. When performed with the abs muscles pulled, this exercise does great things for you.


Plank - For this exercise program, you need to position yourself for a pushup and hold the pose. Ensure that your body is in one long, straight line from head to toes.


Captain's chair - This abs exercise involves standing on a gym chair and gripping the handholds. Press your back against the head pad and slowly lift your knees towards your chest. The back must remain straight.


Postnatal abdominal exercise

Most women are eager to get back to shape after pregnancy and childbirth. Women must consult their doctor before embarking on a postnatal abdominal exercise program. Pelvic tilts and simple ab contractions are an ideal way to embark on a postnatal lower abdomen exercise program. Combined with Kegels' exercise, you can get your pelvic floor muscles back in shape. Isometric contractions can even be practiced with the baby on your stomach. Stick to a steady lower ab exercise program and watch the flabby skin harden.


Stomach exercise

The elusive washboard flat stomach eludes most of us. Millions of dollars are spent in the quest for a flat stomach and slim waistline. There are many exercise machines that are sold to those seeking an exercise program for cutting down the adipose on the waistline. The first step towards a trim waist and flat stomach is to remove the fat that sits on the abs. A combination of cardiovascular exercise program coupled with a healthy diet aimed at preventing fat can do wonders. Stomach exercise program would include the following:


· Forward flexion exercises such as sit-ups and crunches.


· Side flexion exercises such as side crunches and side bends


· Rotational exercises such as trunk rotations and standing twists


Exercise for love handle

Love handles are a misnomer, as all women would love to shun them. Love handles are the unsightly fat belts around the waist. This lump of flesh starts at the side of the bra-line and extends all the way down the back. Aerobic exercise aimed at this region can help you shed the unsightly roll of flesh. Exercise for love handles involve exercising the oblique muscles to tighten up the sides of the waist. Ab crunches would help too. A simple home exercise for love handles - Sit upright with a stick across the back of your shoulders. Twist from side to side. Side bends also work wonders on love handles. Keep at it and watch these muscles firm into place.

I did mine! I do the a version of the reverse curl but I lay on my back on our leather ottoman. I then lift my legs straight up off the floor and pull my upper body forward at the same time. You can really feel the burn!

Thanks for the post, I'll definitely have to try some of these other ones.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
