ah yes, squats. you might feel like a nerd doing them at first, but let's face it: they work! or at least, theywork things that normally don't get worked. they're incorproated frequently in the 3 day melt program. what else is at play? the love handle region. what's that muscle group called? oh my word, wikipedia's got it all, even love handles which, it seems, are abdominal external obliques. my friend who's taking anatomy/physiology has got nothin on me! hey, this link tool is frickin easy and fun. what else can i link to? chocolate cupcakes? mmmmmmmm.

and... sore muscles feel like a dirty little secret, don't they? maybe i'll explore that in later post...

10 Minute Workout

have i mentioned what a fan i am of the 10 minute workout? i always got bored doing other exercise programs that lasted half hour to 90 minutes. this is perfect. ther'es never an excuse to not do it,because there's always room to squeeze in 10 minutes of something. gets my heart pumpin, too!

Half Time

just got the perfect 10 workout. it's also called mitch's melt it off program. comes with a really tough/sturdy 2 lb. ball to use in the exercises. have to admit, i'm out of shape! i tried the exercises as i watched the dvd, and i've got a ways to go to whip my booty into shape enough to go s fast as they do. but i'll do it! it is mitch gaylord the olympic gymnast whose program it is, so sounds credible to me. i could only do each move about half as fast as the pros, but hey, if i didn't have 'room for advancement' i guess i wouldn't need mitch's help! here's the link to 3 day melt in case you want to check it out yourself.
