My favorite exercise ever would have to be the deadlift. However, tied in second place is a squat and a Romanian deadlift. Since most of you probably know what a squat is, I thought I’d show you my second favorite exercise ever, the Romanian deadlift.
If you’re looking an exercise to make your hammies and glutes cry out to the heavens the next day, this bad boy is it. As always, there’s a few very important cues to remember:
• Abs should be braced to protect your back
• Feet should be flat on the floor — don’t let yourself shift your weight into the toes and the balls of the feet
• Keep a flat back. Don’t let your back become too hunched or too arched. A neutral spine is key
• Always check with your physician before starting any new exercise program
I trained a quick client at the gym this afternoon, and once I was home I immediately started cooking dinner. My appetite has been on high gear all. day. long today! In my fridge, I had 3 multi-color bell peppers, avocado, and tomato on hand, which were all screaming for me to turn them into fajitas.
Underneath the yummy stuff (heh) is a heaping pile of onion, bell pepper, black beans, and seasoning.
Shane and I both gobbled down our portions with barely any talking involved <— sign of a good meal
On the side, I had some guac + tortilla chips.
The meal was SO filling at the time, but within an hour, we were both ready for somethin’ sweet. We threw around the idea of getting frozen yogurt, but instead decided to head to the store and each pick out a carton of ice cream.
I love the idea of self-serve frozen yogurt, love the excitement about it, and even love the taste, but to be completely honest ice cream > frozen yogurt. Sorry!
Anyway, I chose coconut pineapple and Shane chose an ice cream carton for the indecisive.
And when Shane handed me my bowl, I had a scoop of both in there!
His totally wins; it’s all yummy and Coldstone like…if that makes sense.
OK, off to clean the kitchen and then relax for the night!
Frozen yogurt or ice cream?
Favorite flavor from the store?
Have a great night!
