Stealing Karla's title. We must have gotten her weather because it's miserable out right now.  I'm going to kickboxing this morning, at my new gym. So far, they've been responsive to feedback which is good.  The problem w/ the schedule s that mostly there is Zumba, spinning, Les MIlls Body stuff, mind/body and then "power hour."  Power hour isn't a class--it's just stations set up around the room. I don't need someone to do that for me.  So, this kickboxing is a good addition. The problem is I'm not sure what they'd offer that I'd want to do. After 20 some years, I could be "gym classed" out.

I don't know if I mentioned this but I pulled something in my right side a few weeks ago. It's since moved to a spot on my back (yeah, strains don't move) and silks really aggravates it. I'm not sure if I need a massage or what.

I have two advice clients today and am doing quick change for Nutcracker rehearsal. Quick change is craziness that I've tried to avoid. Some girls come off the stage and only have a few minutes to change to their other part so there is a dedicated mom to help her change quickly, costume, hair, make up. I'm so good at all of that stuff...not. And, I'm terrible under pressure.  I'm sure I'll be sweating up a storm trying to get it right.

"I am so happy they decided to stay in a motel."

Are you kidding?!  I would have no problem telling them, "no way."  :)  You are much more flexible than me!  The nerve of them!  They obviously have no boundaries!  Any flexibility on your part will only lead to more unwelcome visits.

There's nothing new or different w/ these exercises but the sequence works and I pull this out all the time.  It's best on the ball but could be done on the bench. You segue easily from one exercise to another:

head on ball, bridge, squeeze glutes up, keep them up the whole time:

chest press--15

lat pull over--15

tricep skullcrusher--10

crunches to shoulder press--12

roll to bridge on the ball again, weight on hips, single or double leg glute squeeze--10 per leg then 10 both legs, on toes

weight in arms towards ceiling and do russian twist (on ball is nice recovery)

roll over to supine and do lower back (any but hyperextension gives their glutes a break)--15

go through three times . Do cardio burst in between if you want.
