9/03/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 3. September 2013 08:00

My trainer challenged me with a great exercise the other day.  It was so simple, no “big complicated machines”, but I feel it today in my gluteus maximums, and my calves (in a good way). 

There was a 16 inch box that I was standing in front of with 2, 12 pound dumbbells.  I sat down (feet 1 ½ feet apart) and then you stand up and do single- concentrated curls.  It’s effective because when you sit down your sitting down below parallel with your thighs.  You feel it right away in your butt!

Now, when I say “I felt it the next day”, that is not to say that I was incapacitated.  If you work out with a trainer and you feel so sore that you want to cry, or can’t do your daily activities without wincing, then FIND A NEW TRAINER!
