Readers’ Workouts — November 20 — 10 Comments

  1. I was thinking about you this morning and wondering if maybe you could just substitute out that last ab exercise for something different? But that is scary about the hip popping–even if it doesn’t hurt. I think I’ll do L2 two more times and then move on to L3 next week. eeeeee! 😉

  2. I can’t do push ups for the life of me. I just sag in the middle. Well done for finally being able to do them. I haven’t actually done any kettlebell workouts. 🙁 My excuse is that I didn’t want to do anything to interfere with my half marathon… now that’s done what excuse to I have now? Oh I have new shoes…

    I confess I am not entirely sure what 30 Day Shred is, but it sounds painful and evil.

    • 30 Day Shred is the signature workout by Jillian Michaels, known as the tough trainer on The Biggest Loser. It’s meant to sound painful and evil, which seems to be part of the fun somehow.

      Woohoo for the half-marathon! I’ll go say more on your blog….

  4. Congrats on those push-ups!!! Yay! What a great accomplishment. Now you can start out doing full push-ups every time and then switch to modified push-ups when your form starts to falter as you tire. It’s a GREAT upper body and core strengthening exercise.

    My cycling partner–who has her Master’s degree in exercise physiology and is also a personal trainer and instructor at my gym–will not allow anyone to call full push-ups “boy” push ups. And the easier push ups that you do with your knees on the floor and your body still maintaing plank position the entire time are “modified” push-ups. NEVER call them “girl” push-ups. Oh no, no, no! 😉

    Keep up the great work, Joy!

    I had a good week last week–362 minutes doing my regular stuff.. bike, run, and fitness classes at the gym. Went running at the track last week with my husband because he wanted the gentler surface for his knees, but omg I found it SO BORING. I much prefer running through a park or the neighborhood.. time flies faster.

    • The gentle surface of a track or, worse yet, a treadmill is sometimes important. That’s when I start needing entertainment with my exercise. There are so many options with the digital media but it can take awhile to figure out what’s really going to be entertaining enough.
