Strong is the new skinny!

Hell yeah!

We want to be fit, we want to be strong – ain’t that right? It’s not about being skinny, it’s about being AWESOME!

She's very strong

I am not super-strong yet, but I managed a new addition to my weights in Body Pump. Get me!

More, much more!

I’m making my exercises different, more dynamic, adding in new cross-training.

I made a note of what I’ve done in the past 10 days:

  • Side plank rotations
  • Forearm to straight arm plank
  • Plank jacks
  • 1 leg reach outs
  • Plank wide tucks
  • 360 push ups
  • 1 arm push up
  • Push up tuck
  • Superman pushup
  • Push up tuck jump
  • Rock & roll burpees
  • Full extension pikes on ball
  • Mountain climbers
  • Side to side hanging knee raises
  • Frozen v-sit
  • Push up clap back
  • Burpees
  • 1 legged burpees
  • Archer rows
  • Clapping push up
  • Diamond push up
  • Finger tip push up
  • Hanging leg raise
  • 1 leg box jump
  • Archer push up
  • Tuck jumps
  • Spider man push ups
  • Jump squats
  • Archer pull up
  • Windshield wiper abs
  • L-Sit
  • Inverted shoulder press
  • Ab levers
  • 180 squat jumps
  • Pistol squat
  • Bodyweight tricep extension
  • Deceleration squat jump
  • Alternating superman pushups

And let me tell you, that doesn’t include all the Zumba cardio too!

Wowsers, man!
