Exercise of the week

31 Exercise of the Week

The Dead Lift. This exercise is a great total body lift. Major muscles worked include your quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes in the legs. Your entire back and abdominals. Your shoulders, forearms, and grip in your arms.

Technique: Start with your feet shoulder width apart. Place your grip outside of your knees. Bend your knees and sink your hips back. Keep your shoulders tall, and your chest "up" (if you have writing or logo on the front of your shirt you should be able to see it when in the bottom position.) As you stand up keep your back ridged and straight, extend your knees and hips at the same time. If you are using a barbell for this exercise, keep the bar as close as you can to your body, being careful not to scrape your shins or hit your knees with the bar.

With a fast tempo its perfect for 30 - 45second sprint intervals.

This is a jicama. It is a root vegetable from mexico. I tried it for the first time this week, and I have to say it is quite refreshing. It tastes somewhat like a radish, except not quite as bitter. Maybe like a cross between a radish and an apple. It is very high in fiber and is considered a high volume food, if you didn't catch my post on that click Here!
