Ah, Push – P-Push It Real Good!

It’s still resolution time, and gyms are busier than ever.  I  love it – I thrive in a busy gym! Others? Not so much. There’s a tendency for regular gym-goers to have a cavalier attitude toward the newcomers. They know that fewer than 20% will actually stick around, and they look forward to the days when they don’t have to wait to use the squat rack. I get that. But in my gym, we always have to wait to use the squat rack! That’s because there’s one. One Squat Rack. Even though my gym is very small,  I love it when it’s busy. I joke that I’m going to walk around placing sticky notes that say, “Mine Mine Mine” on all the equipment I’ll want to use, but really, I find it very motivating to be surrounded by lots of people getting their fit on.  Resolution or not? I’m totally digging that people are at the gym! But my resolution is a bit different. The only resolution I made for myself this year is to get more sleep.  I’ve got the exercise thing down, I’ve got my diet dialed in, but now that I’ve launched This is Fit, taken on 3 personal training jobs, and still have a house to maintain and one child left in the nest, I’m recognizing my need to be smarter about rest and sleep. In case you haven’t noticed, I am a DOer. I almost never power down until I have to, and I almost never just sit and watch TV until my husband presses me to watch a movie with him. It’s just my...

Rock This Workout!

We’re battening down the hatches, throwing wood on the fire, stocking up on food, doing 25 jumping jacks approximately every 3 minutes, and randomly screaming things like HOLYEFFINGSH*TBALLZISITCOLD in defense against – and reaction to – the wicked cold that has descended upon the Midwest. I’m not sure I’ve felt cold like this ever. And it makes me wonder about the sanity of those who live in northern regions. No seriously, what’s the matter with you people. I’m always cold, and I hate it. If I’m moving around I’m not too cold, but if I’m doing work at my computer, I can wear three layers, a scarf, and a blanket wrapped around me like a toga and still be cold. IT’S SO ANNOYING. But I’ve discovered two things that truly warm me to the core: a hot hot hot shower, and exercise. And that, my friends, is my motivation to keep up with my workouts even on days when it sounds more reasonable to burrow under down comforters and never come out. In fact, I just HiiT last week’s workout, In Your FACE, and topped it off with some specialized strength training sets (push-ups, front-weighted step-ups, push presses, and so on), and for the first time all day, I’m warm. I’m warm!  I’M WARM! I mean, I’m hot. RAWR. So I know you feel like holing up with a non-stop supply of carbs, but buck up little camper. It’s time to hiit this workout. No, wait – it’s time to ROCK this workout. Cuz that’s how we roll. For this week’s workout, you’ll need two light Sandbells, one heavy...
