The 43 today is one of my favorite moves! I LOVE dead-lifts!! Plus, I added in a row so it was a nice combo move to work hamstrings, butt, and back muscles.
I started standing up straight with 15 pound dumbbells in each hand. Hinge from the waist and, without rounding your back, lower down. Come up about halfway and perform row – really squeeze shoulder blades together when you draw your elbows in. Lower arms and slowly lift body back to upright, squeezing butt as you come up.
For the rest of my work-out I did Les Mills Pump – Combat DVD. One of my very favorite work-outs when I only have about 45 minutes. I also did 2 quick 10 minute walks with a friend.
Now I have to get busy on the newsletter for Hunter’s school. It has to go home tomorrow and I haven’t started – I still have 12+ hours, plenty of time!!!
