AUGUST CHALLENGE!!!!!!!! 1000 Minutes....Don't stop now....Come in and post your own challenge!!! - Page 2

post #21 of 49

So yesterday we spent three hours at this place that just opened up called Hot Lava. It's kind of like an obstacle course/American Ninja/Parquor gym with all kinds of fun stuff. They have a slackline, a hanging ring forest, rope swings, lots of climbing stuff, hanging stuff, jumping stuff, a big springy gym floor, I don't even know how to describe it. It's made for adults but kids are allowed there until 2 p.m. It was so freaking much fun. And we got sweaty and tired and woke up *sore* this morning. Total blast, and a great workout. We were there for three hours, so I'm giving myself a solid 90 minutes of workout time.

Jaxy, I grew up in Metarie, on the lake. I always wished my parents lived uptown, and by the time I was a teenager, I was spending most of my time there.

This is me playing on the ring forest. So much fun.


And this is DS hanging above the hot lava pit. He loved swinging on the rope swing into the pit.

750 Back in the game baby! I need to start doing core strength exercises... For some reason just thinking about it discourages me... I have no core at all... And doing those repetitive movements bore me... I gave up the 30 day shred after the 21rst day... Any idea gals?

post #36 of 49

Not keeping track of time, just stopping by to say "hi".

I really enjoy the plank pose on the elbows.  Hands together for more support, forearms parallel for more challenge.  Then I tip myself a little this way, a little that way.  Lift one leg and hold.  Switch.  Do the side-arm plank up on your elbow, then switch.  Always take a moment to pull your abdomen in before forward bends.  Lengthen up and down when standing.  Warrior 1.  Do opposing poses (like the table-top pose) to lengthen the psoas, which tightens terribly with traditional core exercises and can curve the lower back and even cause a poochy belly.  There is a goofy yoga "lock" that involves the abdomen.  Amazing.  Focus on pulling your core into all your exercise, rather than always relying on repetitious crunches and such.  When I have more time, I can find a link to a great yoga core workout.

http://www.yogajournal.com/lifestyle/1630  --a half-decent article with links about core strengthening, with a focus on cross-training.  I could look around for others, but this is a start.

Oh wow, thx SweetSilver! My only problem right now is to fit yoga into my schedule. I need a routine and stick to it. I don't want to eliminate runs and bike rides because I know they're a big part my weight loss... But I need to start dedicating a good 10-15 mins a day to yoga.

Thank you for the links they are very helpful!

 

Oh and by the way, hi to you too :) Hope you have a good summer!
