Today’s 44 was a different way to try a standard move. I took some advice from Tamara @ Fitknitchick and tried a unilateral move. I did a single arm shoulder press – non-working arm stays extended the entire time (so it is really working!!).
Hold two equal weight dumbbells at shoulder height. Extend both arms up and over your head, keeping weights slightly in front of your head. Keep non-working arm fully extended while you lower the working (weighted) arm towards your shoulder. Press back up to the starting position. Complete all repetitions on one side then switch to the other. (thanks to Tamara for this explanation of the move!)
I thought that 8 pounds wouldn’t be challenging enough so I did 10 pounds – yikes!!!
This move was hard – keeping the “non-working” arm up the entire time makes this move 10x harder. And the 2nd set of 44 was brutal but I kept the same weights so that I could try to be balanced!!!
I remember when the weekend used to mean a little bit of down time!!! Now, the weekend means that I have to do some major planning to make sure we all get to the events and activities we are supposed to!!
This morning, Chris and I are each judging 2 rounds of debate (part of Jordan’s debate grade – funny how it involves us!!). Hunter has to get to the middle school to ride the bus to the cross country meet before we get home – good thing for friends to come get him!!!
After our judging career ends, we will run home to get Jordan and take him to the high school so he can spend the rest of the day being a timer at the debate tournament. Then Chris and I will book it to Kansas City for Hunter’s cross country meet.
Busy but it will all be fun!!!
Jordan is really enjoying marching band so the Friday night craziness is totally worth it. Plus, the football games are always fun!
Weekends in your world – relaxing or crazy?
Happy Saturday!!! Relaxing or rushed – I hope it’s a great one!!
